New York • An unpublished notebook containing the musings and poems of Jim Morrison in the last year of his life is included in a coming sale of rock 'n' roll memorabilia.
The handwritten marble notebook by The Doors' lead singer could bring between $200,000 and $300,000 on Dec. 18 in an auction both online and live in Calabasas, Calif., said Profiles In History auction house.
Eddie Van Halen's 1982 Kramer Frankenstrat is among items up for bid. The handmade, red-and-white guitar was used during Van Halen's 1982-1983 Diver Down Tour and recording of its most successful album, "1984."
Van Halen's signature is inscribed on the guitar's neck. Its presale estimate is $100,000 to $150,000. Part of the proceeds will benefit guitarist Jason Becker, who has Lou Gehrig's Disease.
