LADY GAGA EARLY DEMOS, AUTOGRAPHS UP FOR AUCTION

Demos from Lady Gaga’s early days will be up for bid in a new online auction, alongside handwritten lyrics, clothing and various ephemera from the likes of Paul McCartney, John Lennon, Bob Dylan and Michael Jackson.

It’s all part of an expansive collection going under the gavel as the Rock & Roll Pop Culture Auction, starting on Wednesday at GottaHaveRockAndRoll.com. And for Gaga completists, there’s plenty to get excited about.

In total, six CDs of early recordings will be up for auction, including a pair of demo discs from her first days as Lady Gaga. One, from 2006 and complete with a handwritten track listing, features six songs (“Wonderful,” “Retrosexual,” “Rock Show,” “Spin You Around,” “Yay Ha” and “Oh Well”) and was donated by her then-manager Bob Leone. The second disc, also from ’06, is a single version of the song “Wonderful.”

The four other albums in the auction feature music recorded by Gaga when she was still going by her real name, Stefani Germanotta, and include a CDR (labeled “Stefani Germanotta, 2001″) with four songs, and three albums: Stefani, Red And Blue; Stefani Germanotta; and Words, which is credited to the “Stefani Germanotta Band.” A performance DVD, shot at the Cutting Room in New York, is also up for bid.

Bidding on all six CDs will start at $1,000. Two autographed items — an 11-by-14 photograph and a copy of Gaga’s The Fame album — are also up for auction, with opening bids starting at $100. That’s a pretty good deal, especially considering that bidding on a life-size Arnold Schwarzenegger-autographed T-800 prop from “T2: Judgment Day” begins at $79,000. And Arnie has never even had a hit record.

Jo Calderon Talks ‘Gaga’

An excerpt from the interview:
WHERE ARE YOU FROM?
Palermo, Sicily
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE WHAT YOU DO / YOUR OCCUPATION?
Mechanic for my dad’s business. This is the first time I’ve had my picture taken.
WHEN DID YOU DISCOVER YOU WANTED TO TO THIS?
Well, I always helped my dad at work, since I was a kid. I thought it would be fun to have my picture taken.
WHAT ARE YOUR AMBITIONS?
I’d love to own my own car shop, I have a bunch of my own ‘muscle’ cars. Maybe if I take some more pictures I can afford it.
WHAT IS YOUR RELATIONSHIP TO LADY GAGA?
I met her at a shoot Nick Knight was doing. She’s fuckin beautiful, and funny, and interesting. I was a little nervous for Nick to start shooting. She said, “Don’t be baby, you were “born this way.” I took her out after. The rest is private. O.O ok…
