The singer told MailOnline: "I hung around stage doors schmoozing until they let me in. Since I always took Peggy Sue, they often assumed I was part of the act and just ushered me through.

"When my dad gave me that guitar, little did we know, after all these years, what a story it would be able to tell."

While Stardust has no plans to part with the piece, we can offer you an incredibly rare signed Beatles album for a fraction of the price.
