How much is a Beatles record worth?

Like all records, the value would depend on the record's condition, how popular (and more importantly, how collectible) the artist is, and whether the record is rare (some records only had very limited pressings, for example those made before an artist became popular).

Most Beatles records aren't worth nearly as much as anticipated or hoped for by sellers, because so many copies were sold originally, and so many people saved theirs in like-new or unplayed condition, expecting them to be worth money someday. The records also stayed in print for twenty years and more; later issues are often mistaken for earlier issues by non-collectors.

Consult an expert, or rather several experts if you want to get the best price. There are websites that give that information. Just enter the name of the album in, and it should direct you to site that gives you the info you seek.

You can also look up the discography in Record Collectormagazine, or that magazine's Rare Record Price Guide book. (The prices listed are not what you will get, selling the record to a dealer; they are more a guide to what a collector can expect to pay for one.)

Any of the websites linked below may be able to provide the value of your record.

You will NOT get book value for a record that is not mint. You will NOT get book value on a record that you sell to a shop or dealer. Just keep all of that in mind if you decide to sell it.

It would depend on the condition of the album. There is a website,, that has a lot of that type of info.

Usually around 12 or 13 dollars

Where when and how did John Lennon die?

On the evening of Monday, December 8, 1980, 40-year-old John Lennon was shot four times in the back (the fifth shot missed) in the entrance hallway of the Dakota, with hollow-point bullets from a Charter Arms .38 revolver, by Mark David Chapman. Lennon had autographed a copy of Double Fantasy for Chapman earlier that same night.

Two bullets struck Lennon in the lower back and two more in his left shoulder. All four wounds caused serious internal damage, and at least one of them pierced in Lennon's aorta. Lennon staggered up the four steps to the security/reception area and said "I'm shot" and collapsed. Concierge John Hastings at first thought it was a joke, but then summoned the police by hitting the silent alarm button.

Lennon was pronounced dead on arrival in the Emergency Room at the Roosevelt Hospital at 11:15 p.m. The cause of death was reported as hypovolemic shock, after losing more than 80% of blood volume.

On the following day, December 9, 1980, Lennon's wife Yoko Ono issued a statement: "There is no funeral for John. John loved and prayed for the human race. Please do the same for him. Love, Yoko and Sean." Instead of a funeral, ten minutes of silence was observed worldwide the following Sunday, December 14, at 2 p.m. ET.

Chapman later pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and was sentenced to 20 years to life. He is still in prison, 27 years since his arrest, having been denied parole five times. (He became known to the surviving Beatles and their friends as "He whose name shall not be mentioned.")

Two days after his death, Lennon's body was cremated at Ferncliff Cemetery in Hartsdale, New York. The ashes have been said to be sprinkled around Strawberry Fields, as well as in personal possession by Yoko Ono. Yoko Ono kept his bloodstained glasses after he died.

Who were John Lennon's heroes?

Elvis Presley was Lennon's first hero of note... a friend played him "Heartbreak Hotel" early in 1956, and Lennon said later "It was so beautiful, I couldn't speak." When the Beatles met Presley in 1965, Lennon reportedly told him to his face "Before you, there was nothing."

Lennon also spoke highly of his college friend Stuart Sutcliffe (the original Beatles bass player, who tragically died at 21 from a brain hemorrhage), and later admired artists like Michel Duchamp.

Who was John Lennon's killer and what happened to him?

John Lennon was murdered by Mark David Chapman on December 8, 1980. Chapman was arrested at the scene (where he had waited for the police), and has never left state custody. He waived trial and entered a guilty plea at his arraignment.

He is serving a 20-years-to-life sentence for second-degree murder (New York did not have legal provisions for first-degree conviction) at Attica State Prison, and continues to be denied parole.

Nobody knows why for certain, but several theories suggest that he was a disturbed crazed fan, wanted fifteen minutes of fame, was hired by someone else, etc. Chapman stated in an interview that "[Lennon] walked past [him] and then [he] heard in [his] head, 'Do it, do it, do it,' over and over again, saying 'Do it, do it, do it,' like that." He said that at the time of the shooting, he felt "no emotion, no anger dead silence in the brain."

Prince Harry
Princess Diana
John Lennon

Was Princess Diana murdered?

According to investigators that have worked on the case of her death since its actual occurrence in 1997, no, she was not. The Royal Family issued a statement saying that they hoped that these conclusions would quiet conspiracy theories.

However, only one member of the royal family read the document on the extensive investigation in full--the Queen; reportedly, she said that, however conclusive or inconclusive the report was "nothing will satisfy Mr. Al- Fayed."

Al Fayed, father of Diana's lover Dodi who died with her in the car accident, remains insistent that his son and the Princess were murdered. Charles, Diana's ex-husband, said that there was "not a shred of truth" to Al- Fayed's allegations that the Royal Family plotted to kill Diana.

Conspiracy theorists believe that British intelligence murdered the Princess, acting on Prince Philip's orders. It is believed by Al-Fayed and those who agree with him that a) Diana was pregnant with Dodi's child. b) the two were going to be engaged. and c) the British Monarchy could not stand the idea of the mother of the future king marrying a Muslim.

Other sources disagree, as do both the French and British inquiries. Diana's (un-named here) friend said that she knew for a fact that the woman was not pregnant. Diana's son and closest confidante, William, also insists that, had Diana been with child, she would have told him and his brother.

It is known that the driver of the car that crashed had huge sums of unexplained money in his bank account. After interviewing Secret Service agents, and investigating the man, detectives finally concluded that the money, however mysterious, was nothing to do with the crash.

The driver was reportedly intoxicated--three times over the legal limit--at the time. He had in fact been drinking at the bar of the Ritz hotel where Diana and Dodi were eating supper with Dodi's bodyguard. The bodyguard, who survived the crash, said that he thought the man (named Henri Paul) had been drinking pineapple juice. When his check was later examined, it was discovered that he had consumed a liquid that could pass as pineapple juice when diluted with water. Even though people say that 'the paparazzi killed her', or that 'Prince Charles payed someone to kill her', her untimely death was actually caused by her driver- who had been intoxicated.

What was the Beatles' first number one hit?

It's either "Please Please Me" or "From Me To You." The reason for this is that until 1969, there was more than one singles chart. "Please Please Me" was number one in most charts, but not the one that's used now.

Horse Isle Answer: Please Please Me

UK = The Beatles' second single, "Please Please Me", released 11 January, 1963, hit #1 in the UK (for two weeks!) in February of 1963.

US = The Beatles' first single, "Love Me Do", released 5 October, 1962, hit #1 in America in 1964.

However! 'I Want To Hold Your Hand' was charted as Billboard's #1 for seven weeks in 1964, starting the 'British Invasion', topped the UK's charts, and became The Beatles' best-selling single world-wide...
