Jim Morrison’s Handwritten Notebook Up For Auction

NEW YORK (AP) — An unpublished notebook containing the musings and poems of Jim Morrison in the last year of his life is included in a coming sale of rock ‘n’ roll memorabilia.

Profiles In History auction house says the handwritten marble notebook belonging to The Doors’ lead singer could bring up to $300,000 on Dec. 18. The sale will be online and live at its Calabasas, Calif., gallery.

Eddie Van Halen’s 1982 Kramer Frankenstrat is among other items up for bid. The 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.
