Exhibition of rare and coveted rock 'n' roll memorabilia

About

Fame Bureau are recognised as the world leaders in rock ‘n' roll memorabilia, with Managing Director Ted Owens having over 30 years experience in this field. Previous auctions have seen the sale of Jimi Hendrix's burnt guitar go for a whooping $575,000, Jim Morrison's last notebook for $115,000 and John Lennon's piano for a record-breaking £1.5 million. Under the virtual hammer this time are rare paintings from recently deceased artist John Davies. Roger Daltry and Pete Townsend of The Who commissioned the stand alone works for the book ‘A Decade of the Who'. Although previously published, these works have never been available for public viewing, and will only be so for five days at Idea Generation Gallery, before they go to a new private owner. Exhibiting alongside Davies' paintings will be photographer Bernie Walters, with unseen images of The Who. All works will be auctioned online through www.famebureau.com on October 14th, alongside clothes previously worn by Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley guitars and Beatles' contracts.
