Auction Sells Off Mick Jagger’s Hair For £4,000

Mick Jagger

Buying memorabilia from famous artists is nothing strange. Except when that memorabilia is a piece of hair. A lock of Rolling Stones’ front-man Mick Jagger’s hair was sold for £4,000 at an auction in London. The lump of hair reached more than its pre-sale value with an envelope coming with the hair.

The message read: “Mick Jagger’s hair after being washed + trimmed by Chris at Rose Hill Farm“.

Ex-girlfriend Chrissie Shrimpton, who met the rock legend while he was studying at London School Of Economics, donated the bowl of hair.

The proceeds of the sale were donated to the Changing Faces charity, which offers support to people who suffer from facial disfigurements. This wasn’t the only thing on auction with a host of more “sane” products available.

A guitar owned by Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page was sold for £26,250, while handwritten lyrics to David Bowie’s classic hit, ‘The Jean Genie‘, was purchased for £18,750.

In regards to more news featuring rock legends, David Bowie was offered a role on the TV show, Hannibal, on the back of him releasing his new album: ‘The Next Day‘, which features the three massive hits including ‘Where Are We Now?’, ‘The Stars (Are Out Tonight)‘ and ‘The Next Day‘.

Returning to the Rolling Stones, the band made their Glastonbury debut headlining the Pyramid Stage at Worthy Farm for the first time in years.

Jagger joked that the Worthy Farm finally asked the band to return, after years of not turning up at the festival.
