The Seattle Times
The Gotta Have It! Rock & Roll Auction is auctioning off a collection of rare items from some of music’s most celebrated artists. Seattle-based rock legends Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain both have a slew of memorabilia up for sale. Hendrix’s guitar strap from the guitar he burned onstage at the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival is currently going for $50,000; there are also authentic arrest documents from a visit to Sweden, signed photographs and ticket stubs, handbills and photo sets up for auction. One of Cobain’s smashed guitars from 1993 is on the block as well (for a cool $50,000), in addition to a Nirvana set list hand-annotated by the tragic frontman and original photos of the band.
