WENN

The front door from Paul McCartney's childhood home in Liverpool, England, has sold at auction for $8,000.

Bing: Paul McCartney's new album

A phone bidder from Lancashire won the door to 20 Forthlin Road in Allerton during the sale at Dominic Winter Auctioneers in Cirencester, England, on Wednesday.

McCartney lived at the address before the Beatles took off in the early 1960s and reports suggest he learned to play guitar, piano, drums and the trumpet there.

The house was bought by the National Trust in 1995 but the windows, tiles and fittings were refurbished in the late 1970s.

When will the truth about the naming of the band come out again ? The band , due to the dislike of them by the older generation , was to be called the Beat-Less , not the Beatles. . .

Idiotic statement. Paul doesn't own the house or the door - someone can't read:  The National Trust owns both and has since the 70's.
