    Very dubious! £50000 is rather excessive even if Jimi had painted it.

    Jimi Hendrix's Monterey Pop Guitar Goes to Auction, Bring Half a Mil or Go Home!
    JIMI HENDRIX
    MONTEREY POP GUITAR FOR SALE
    Bring $500k or Go Home!

    Attachment 27954
    The night Jimi Hendrix famously lit up his guitar at the Monterey Pop Festival, Hendrix had another one that survived the show, and it's about to be up for grabs ... if you're a serious baller.
    A private collector from the UK is finally unloading Jimi's Black Pepper Fender Stratocaster from that iconic 1967 concert -- perfect timing, with this being the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love.
    Heritage Auctions is handling the bidding, which starts June 17 in Beverly Hills at $500k. Organizers estimate the final bid could reach $750k!
    Makes sense -- Jimi used it to play "Hey Joe," "The Wind Cries Mary" and several other classics during the festival ... before trading it out for the one he burned and smashed on stage.
    We're told it still has his southpaw stringing, scratches from his belt, and bonus ... Pepper still shreds.

    WOODSTOCK – Manuscript draft schedule [Woodstock, N.Y., c. July-August 1969.

    A newly discovered preliminary plan for the Woodstock concert. A testament to the moving target that was the Woodstock festival during its planning stages, the festival here appears to been intended to run from Wednesday 13 August, running an entire week to Wednesday 20 August 1969. The plan lists each day horizontally, and each row is divided into smaller, but unspecified time intervals (perhaps 10 minutes per slot?). Only the prime nights (Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) were scheduled, and many of several of the planned acts, including Joan Baez, The Grateful Dead, The Jefferson Airplane and The Who, were scheduled to play four nights in a row – each consuming generous amounts of time. Oddly enough, only two slots were allotted for Jimi Hendrix (Sunday night) followed by an equally short set by Johnny Winter. Other acts that would perform at the Bethel, New York festival mentioned here include Canned Heat, Ravi Shankar, Janis Joplin, Ritchie Havens, Sha-Na-Na, Country Joe and the Fish, Crosby Stills & Nash, Sweetwater, Incredible String Band, Mountain, and Arlo Guthrie. Proposed acts that did not perform in August 1969 include Spontaneous Sound and (penciled at the close of Sunday evening) Iron Butterfly (who failed to make the festival). Jean Val Ernst, a staff member of Woodstock Ventures discovered the chart in a trailer behind the stage after the conclusion of the festival.

    Jimi Hendrix’s stage-worn boots, brown leather cavalry style, 13.5″ high, 11″ heel to toe

    *These boots were worn on stage by Jimi Hendrix at The Pier Pavilion, Worthing in 1967 and are accompanied by a copy of a letter written by the fan who acquired them backstage at the concert. Other personal effects were acquired at the same time, including a shirt, bag and other personal artifacts. These were sold in Bonhams sale (11808) on 16 November 2005, ex-lot 672. A copy of the page from this Auction catalogue is also supplied.

    Well it says copyright 1988 at the bottom so it was obviously written posthumously, but as a Dylan fan, I wish we could have a proper read.
