VIDEO – Rare rock ‘n’ roll memorabilia from across the decades for sale in Doncaster

A renowned Doncaster company whose client list includes a who’s who of rock royalty – Noel Gallagher, Pete Townsend, New order and The Killers – to name a few, will hold a very special auction on Sunday.

Very rarely does an event like this take place. A unique auction of some of the rarest group gear and band stage equipment will be put up for sale from 10.15am at the premises of Hylight Electronics (Hiwatt Amplification), Unit 1A Holmeroyd Road, Bentley Moor Lane, Adwick-le-Street.

Lots include a 1960s reel to reel tape machine from Abbey Studios when the likes of The Beatles and The Rolling Stones recorded there, a battered Fender bass guitar found at the back of a building after the Sex Pistols had played there and which could have been used by Sid Vicious, a Rockola juke box containing original singles from 1958, and for the right price a rare 1960s signed guitar from the Yardbirds’ original members Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page.

The company is owned by local man Richard Harrison and the auction will be run by his best friend and on/off business partner, Adrian Elderkin.
