David Bowie’s lyrics, Thom Yorke’s piano and Mick Jagger’s hair all sold at auction

What do David Bowie, Thom Yorke and Mick Jagger have in common? Sure, all great musicians. But they also all had items for sale at a recent charity auction.

The auction took place at Bonhams Knightbridge and saw an array of music memorabilia available for bidding. The best seller of the day was a guitar played by Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin, which went for a whopping £26,500.

Along with Jimmy’s axe, there were many other items sold at the auction yesterday including a lock of Mick Jagger’s hair from the 1960′s (£4,000), David Bowie’s handwritten lyrics to his classic track, ‘The Jean Genie’ (£18,750) and the Trade Justice Movement racked up £9,000 after executing the sales of a piano used by Thom Yorke for the Kid A and Amnesiac albums and large canvas painting by the man himself.

The Director of Bonhams Entertainment Memorabilia, Stephanie Connell told the NME“We are delighted to have sold these iconic pieces of memorabilia and are thrilled that a number of them were on behalf of good causes.”
