One of Hendrix's guitars, an Epiphone, that he played from 1967 to 1970, was sold at Bonhams & Brooks auction house in London Thursday (June 21, 2001) for $87,000(US).

A black pen that he once used to sign a recording contract fetched $5,800.

A stars and stripes shirt went for $26,000.

A set of stacked amplifiers that he used at Woodstock sold for $41,000.

Total proceeds reached $272,000 and will go to DrugScope, a group that researches drug policy.

I reckon ol' Jimi mighta turned over in his grave at the irony of it all..
