Published Jun 19, 2009In what must be the most exciting music-related contest, like, ever, one extremely lucky Beatles fan will win the original 1962 contract between the Beatles and manager Brian Epstein. (Said fan will probably have a heart attack immediately upon receiving said contract, of course, but we'll deal with that when the time comes.)
According to Music Radar, anyone, regardless of geographical location, can go to Imagine's website to enter the contest, making this a worldwide deal
Here's how to win: figure out what you think a panel of judges has valued the contract at. As some guidelines (and a measure of how much value we rock nerds place on this stuff), John Lennon's lyrics to "All You Need Is Love" sold for about $1.4 million and Jimi Hendrix's burnt Stratocaster went for around $575,000.
Oh, speaking of money, this very cool contest does cost £10 to enter, about $18.50 Canadian. Multiply that by the number of rabid Beatles fans the world over who will be entering, and it would appear that the person who gets the contract isn't going to be the only winner here.
