According to The West Australian, an auction at Christie's of rock 'n' roll memorabilia from some of the hottest bands of the 1960s and '70s hauled in big bucks today, including $20,000 for a JIMI HENDRIX album and more than $4,000 for a ROLLING STONES T-shirt.A copy of HENDRIX's "Axis: Bold as Love" album from 1968 — inscribed "Thanks for everything" and accompanied by three color photos of the rock star — sold for double its pre-sale estimate of $10,000. Three cardboard posters for Hendrix concerts in 1968 and 1969 fetched $10,625, $16,250 and $18,750. The prices included the buyer's premium.
