Bob Dylan Manuscript

On Tuesday, Bob Dylan’s original, handwritten manuscript for his hit “Like a Rolling Stone” was sold on auction for $2.045 million, shattering the previous record set in 2010 when John Lennon’s handwritten lyrics for “A Day in the Life” sold for $1.2 million. The accompanying infographic details other rock and roll memorabilia and their respective auction price tags.

While the price tag may or may not be a statement, the bidder unmistakably has a surplus of disposable income. With income inequality becoming more and more of a hot topic lately, things like this certainly aren’t a win for anyone in the discussion.
