Paul McCartney to finance restoration of Motown studio piano

Macca saw the piano, featured on a huge number of Motown hits, during a tour of the Motown Museum while in Detroit last summer, reports the Detroit Free Press:

I remembered listening to records as a kid in Liverpool, learning the songs ‘You Really Got a Hold on Me’ and ‘Money,’” McCartney said via a museum statement this afternoon. “I said to myself, ‘Wow! This is the Holy Grail!’”
...There’s no word yet on costs. The piano will start its train journey Monday to the New York headquarters of Steinway & Sons, where specialists will assess it and devise a restoration plan.
