Paddle 8 online auction site is having a legendary auction. No, that’s the NAME; Legendary. Besides lots of Rolling Stones and early punk treasures (like the Sex Pistols‘ God Save the Queen original poster!), they are featuring a number of David Bowie bits of rock history that will have fans wishing Daddy was rich. (Although a few things are actually affordable.) But not the handwritten lyrics for The Jean Genie, which start at $43,000. Paddle 8’s head of Rock, Pop & Film, Caitlin Graham says,
“Handwritten lyrics are the closest you can get to a musician’s heart and mind. David Bowie’s lyrics for ‘The Jean Genie’ give us a glimpse of the Starman’s experience of a debauched 1970s New York during his first American tour—a meaningful piece of history for any Bowie fan.“
