Copy of The Beatles’ White Album Signed by Charles Manson for Sale

Own a disgusting piece of music history for only $50,000

The murders perpetrated by Charles Manson and his band of followers in 1969 were in part inspired by Manson’s own apocalyptic interpretation of several songs on The Beatles’ White Album. According to the theory, the Manson Family (naturally) were to play an instrumental role in igniting a coming race war. Manson called it “Helter Skelter” after the Paul McCartney proto-punk song of the same name.

Now, a copy of the White Album signed by Manson himself—along with Family members Susan Atkins, Leslie Van Houten, Charles “Tex” Watson, and Patricia Krenwinkel—has appeared on auction website iOffer with a starting bid of £30,000 (roughly $50,000). As FACT reports, the seller claims that an acquaintance of his had the album signed while visiting the Family members in prison.
