Rock memorabilia is big, big business and auction houses on both sides of the Atlantic are always offering interesting and sometimes weird items for sale. Here are some examples.
- A Gibson ES 355 guitar owned by Noel Gallagher but smashed by Liam on the night the band broke up in Paris in 2009 sold for US$405,000. And yes, it was repaired before it went up for sale.
- A case of tequila autographed by Carlos Santana.
- A press clipping from a Dublin newspaper in 1978 that contains the first-ever mention of a new band called “U2.”
- And how about this: A collection of prescription bottles in the possession of Elvis Presley the night he died in August 1977.
