.
(Classic Rock) Bob Dylan's draft of the lyrics to 1965 track Like A Rolling Stone are expected to sell for more than $1m at auction next month. The handwritten words are thought to be the only surviving final draft noted down while the piece was under production.

The pieces of Roger Smith Hotel notepaper also includes ideas and unused lyrics such as the name of gangster Al Capone and the words "Dry vermouth / you'll tell the truth."

Auctioneers Sotheby's say: "In this near complete four-page working draft, the distinctive 'How does it fell' lyric is clearly visible alongside unused lines, stray thoughts on American imagery and interesting doodles." more on this story
