The latest in a never-ending series of Beatles-related items to catch our eye, the door was the entry into 20 Forthlin Road in the Allerton section of Liverpool, where Paul lived with his family from 1955 to '64. The Glasgow newspaper The Scotsman says the house was refurbished in the 1970s, with windows and the front door being replaced. It was later sold to singer Glen South, who'd stored it behind his sofa in recent years.
The sale was conducted last Wednesday by Dominic Winter Auctioneers of Gloucestershire. The winning bid came from an undisclosed buyer. 20 Forthlin, with replacement doors and windows -- is now owned by Britain's National Trust.

Paul McCartney is headed to Brooklyn, New York, for what may be his first ever performance there. Posters are popping up in the New York City borough that say, Out There - Brooklyn, but no date yet.
When the date is announced, Macca's Out There tour will hit the Barclays Center, the city's newest arena, having opened last fall. He'll be the third rock 'n roll legend to play the venue. Bob Dylan was there last November, followed by The Rolling Stones in December.
