The vintage albums were previously locked in a vault but Katz decided to showcase them in his office and share them with his patients and staff.
Photographs showed that his walls were once lined with some of rock ‘n’ roll’s finest, including The Beatles. Also taken were albums by Fleetwood Mac and Eric Clapton.READ MORE: LAPD, LA School Police Investigate Sexual Assault Of Female Student In Hamilton High School Boys' Bathroom

Katz estimates that the albums are worth $200,000 to $400,000. The albums weren’t insured.
