Some of the most expensive artifacts in Rock via Rolling Stone Magazine including The Lonely Hearts Drum Cover..

Value: $945,000
Current Owner: Anonymous collector, U.K.

The Beatles' Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover is perhaps the most widely recognizable of all time. The infamous bass drum cover — the centerpiece of the artwork — sold for nearly $1 million last July at Christie's in London. An anonymous bidder bought the hand-painted bass skin for $945,000, which was four times the original estimate. The cover was designed by Sir Peter Blake in 1967.
