2013 Icons and Idols: Rock n' Roll Catalog

Icons and Idols: Rock

Order your copy of Julien’s limited edition Icons & Idols: Rock 'n Roll auction catalog. The catalog contains the more than 750 lots being sold on December 6 and 7, 2013.  Property from the musical careers and personal lives of Jerry Garcia, Elvis Presley, Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, Axl Rose, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Prince, The Beatles and so many others can be found within these pages.

Gracing the cover of this catalog is Jerry Garcia with his Travis Bean TB500 electric guitar. The aluminum neck guitar was the first to employ Garcia’s Onboard Effects Loop. This guitar is noted by Steve Parrish, Garcia’s guitar tech, as being the third most played Garcia guitar, behind “Wolf” and “Tiger.”

Lovers of music and art will be interested  in the archival collection of items from artists known for their connection to the 1960s San Francisco music scene — Rick Griffin, Stanley Mouse, Alton Kelley, Dennis Larkins, and Gary Grimshaw whose careers extend out of the 60s and come into their own in the amazing collection of artwork including many lots produced for the Grateful Dead, sketchbooks, logo lettering, paintings including Stanley Mouse’s Grateful Dead Jester painting used on the cover of The Grateful Dead Songbook in 1973, concept drawings; logo lettering; T-shirt, publicity, and poster designs for the Grateful Dead, among others; and finished artwork — together here for one last ensemble performance. The collection also includes the largest collection of uncut posters and plates from Chet Helms Family Dog productions and other happenings in the San Francisco area. This collection is years in the making and offered together here for the last time.

Instrument aficionados will want to make sure they have this catalog for their library or coffee table as Julien’s auctions: a storied Paul McCartney presentation guitar, the guitars and equipment of Ronnie Montrose, Jimmy Page’s synthesizer guitar, signed guitars benefitting MusiCares and The Gibson Foundation, the personal guitars of Nancy Wilson, Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash’s acoustic guitars, a Steve Vai prototype guitar, two guitars belonging to Tom Fogerty and a Mick Jagger guitar gifted to his brother and fellow musician Chris Jagger.
