Collectors Rock Out In Bathrobes And Capes

LAS VEGAS (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If you’re a music collector with more than a hundred thousand dollars to spare, one Vegas casino is waiting for you – with open pockets and nice comfortable bathrobes.

This Saturday (June 2) at The Orleans Hotel and Casino, The Fame Bureau is holding an auction of prized rock ’n’ roll memorabilia featuring goodies that once belonged to some of music’s greatest rockers like Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Elvis, and John Lennon.

But music history hounds may want to check their bank balance before bidding.

Andrew Freedman, spokesman for The Fame Bureau, says music masterpieces like Morrison’s lyric notebook, Hendrix’s guitar, and John Bonham’s drum kit will strike a very expensive chord, and could bang out as much as $200,000 on a winning bid.

But it’s not just amplified artifacts that are taking center stage.

Freedman says, “We’ll have Tom Jones’ billiards table, and Michael Jackson’s bathrobe, and even James Brown’s cape.”

Freedman adds, “Fashionistas may be especially excited about Madonna’s bousteir and garters.”
