Bid on Jimi Hendrix’s guitar, Kurt Cobain’s flannel shirt, Amy Winehouse’s Grammy outfit and a fair bit of Elvis’ bling in the Legends of Rock and Roll auction.
As perverse as it can seem, die-hard fans and collectors are getting set to bid on rock and roll’s rarest guitars and memorabilia. Think the best fries on the planet, fully loaded with all the goodness the deep fryer has to offer, top that with a diamond the size of your face and whatever else floats your boat, and that’s what we’ve got here.
Get ready to explore the crazy madness of Kurt Cobain’s flannel shirt, alongside his acoustic guitar, with the case and receipt, to Hendrix and Amy Winehouse, and many more rock and roller’s drum kits, as they go up for auction.
Two of the highlights include guitars from the greats – Jimi Hendrix’s Japanese Sunburst, a gift from his father that’s expected to go for more than $250K USD, after last selling for $216K USD in 202o. Given the guitar Cobain played in the Smells Like Teen Spirit music video sold for $4.5 million just recently, it’s anyone’s guess how much this acoustic number will go for!
