Pianos, guitars, masks, clothing and… em, fake teeth, were among the items being auctioned at the Idols & Icons: Rock and Roll Auction in LA last weekend. 

The collection of ridiculously-rare items were collected by Julien's Auctions, 'the auction house to the stars.'

The teeth up for grabs were worn by Michael Jackson in Thriller and the instruments were among those used by John Lennon, Ringo Starr, Elvis Presley and Nancy Wilson.

There was also the mask that Lady Gaga wore in her Bad Romance video. 

But most notable, was Kurt Cobain's cardigan, worn in the 1993 MTV Unplugged performance that won a bid of more than €128,000.

The green mohair cardigan is an item that many fans say defined Kurt as he wore it during one of Nirvana's best live shows. The Grammy-winning performance was one of the band's final performances before Kurt's tragic suicide in 1994. 

Other major bids on the weekend included John Lennon's acoustic Gibson J-160E quitar, that sold for €2.2m. three times the estimated bid.



This will be music to musicians’ ears.

A new study has found that a guitar can instantly boost a man’s attractiveness.

Yes, according to research carried out in the UK, a staggering 90 per cent of people surveyed admitted that playing the guitar is one of the sexiest qualities a man can possess.

Cue men everywhere banging down the doors of their local music store.

Among the draws of musically gifted men is the belief that they are ‘good with their hands’, while over half of those surveyed said they were attracted to the ‘whole rock star thing’.

According to the survey, carried out by Internet giant eBay, 57 per cent put the guitar player’s pulling power down to the belief that it demonstrates passion and sensitivity.

Those who took part in the survey also named their top guitar songs of all time, with Jimi Hendrix’s classic All Along the Watchtower voted as the top song to be serenaded with.

We definitely get the lure of the guitar player, but what about the drummer?!



Rob Scallon has some pretty impressive guitar skills.

He can play a lot of songs in a very short time -30 songs in just one minute, to be exact.

We can barely keep up with this guy!



Wow, we weren’t expecting this. This amazing little eight-year-old girl Lisa-X may be still be very young, but she is still a heavy metal rocker at heart.

Watch as she shreds this guitar riff to pieces.  Rock on.
