Description


Maclen (Music) Ltd. business check, 7.75 x 3.5, filled out in another hand and signed by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, payable to Arthur Young McClelland Moors & Co. for £3942.0.0, January 17, 1977. In fine condition. Just a week earlier, the Beatles had finally settled their lawsuit against their former manager Allen Klein, paying a little over five million dollars. Klein was hired as the band's manager after the death of Brian Epstein, against the wishes of Paul McCartney. The friction between McCartney and Klein was one of the key factors in the band's break-up, with Paul filing suit against his bandmates and Apple Records, eventually forcing Klein to leave. With Klein finally removed from his position, speculation would once again rise over a possible Beatles reunion in the late 1970s.
