Jimi Hendrix’s fateful coat expected to fetch £25K at auction
London: The frock coat worn by legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix on the night of his death is expected to sell for 25,000 pounds at an auction.
The ‘Voodoo Child’ artist, who had worn the jacket at a gathering at the Lord’s home in Notting Hill, London, on September 17, 1970, accidentally left the custom-made garment at friend’s house hours before he choked to death on his vomit, the Telegraph reported.
The unnamed eccentric Lord kept hold of the military grey jacket until he gave it to a pop memorabilia expert as payment for valuing his collection of rock items in the 1990s.
Ted Owen stored the coat at his mother’s house and has now decided to sell the jacket that has five buttons down the front and four on each sleeve at auction.
The online auction will take place on 24 August.
