Rock Legend - Jimi Hendrix Worn Brown Leather Pants with Belt & Broach with Hendrix Roadie Provenance Letter
Are you ready for this Hendrix afficianado's? If you haven't read it yet, get the book "Rock Roadie" and you will be able to read the story of Tappy's life and why he ended up with a few "souvenirs" from the '60's rock legend Jimi Hendrix. "He wore these brown leather pants at a gig." Tappy intimates, " I used to be the general manager Anim lmted which was owned by Mike Jeffrey who managed Jimi Hendrix and the Animals and I was also the Roadie for the Animals. I worked with Hendrix and some of the biggest rock legends of the day." The brown leather pants show wear (scuffing etc.) - They are a woman's size 14 (yes, skinny pants are not a new theme among men - especially rockers). The brand name on the tagging is Ellis Barker Number Twenty Shop.
And included with this pair of skinny pants is a two-layer gold-toned belt. The belt measures out at 33" and is a hook style. Also with this collection is a flower style broach pin with a pink center and silver colored arms bursting out of it.
Jimi Hendrix had clothes everywhere in his own apartment and in their "Anim" London offices. These items were left in their offices in London on Jarod st.. Tappy further states that"Jimi would offer us guitars and stuff that he didn't want to carry." These mementos of Hendrix was kept in Tappy's apartment in in New Castle for years until now as he forgot that he even had it tucked away in his attic. There are some traditional garbs that Hendrix was known to wear and leather pants are amongst them. Epitomizing the guitar legend himself, these brown leather pants were part of an ensemble he wore on stage. A green shirt, beads and jacket were all part of an outfit that Hendrix left behind in London and were separately offered in a previous auction. What an opportunity to own a piece of Hendrix with the impeccable provenance of Tappy Wright.
