‘Storage Wars’ Inspired Them To Bid On This Box… It Was FULL Of Jimi Hendrix Memorabilia.

Rock memorabilia is a tremendous, multi-million dollar industry. In fact, items that once belonged to rock legends can for for tens of thousands of dollars online - even if it's something as arbitrary as a guitar pick.

Imagine then, how deeply saddened the former owner, now deceased, of this Jimi Hendrix memorabilia would have been to learn that all of this stuff was sold for just under $10,000.

Here's the story: Mitch Mitchell was a member of Jimi Hendrix's band. After his widowed wife failed to pay the fees owned to the storage unit where he kept the rock icon's things, the items were repossessed and put up for auction. Some lucky bidder is about to get his paws on all of this amazing stuff - and for a fraction of what it's really worth.
