New York, NY (December 3, 2007) – A copy of Jimi Hendrix’ “Axis: Bold as Love” just went for $20,000 at Christie’s Auction House in New York. It was signed by the Voodoo Chile and came with three color photos.

Other items that went for big bucks include: a Rolling Stones shirt for $4,750; three Hendrix concert posters for $10,625, $16,250 and $18,750; a Yardbirds shirt worn by rock journalist Greg Shaw to the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967 for $3,000; a maroon Led Zeppelin concert tee from 1973 for $1,625; and a “War is over!
