Bidding for a lock of Mick Jagger's hair reached more than double the original estimate, bringing 4,000 pounds (roughly $6000) at an auction in London on Wednesday. The clump of hair was sold by Chrissie Shrimpton, an ex-girlfriend of Jagger's, to raise money for Changing Faces, a charity that helps disfigured people.
The auction house Bonhams also sold David Bowie's handwritten lyrics for "The Jean Genie" for 18,750 pounds and a guitar previously owned by Jimmy Page for 26,250 pounds, among other music and entertainment-related items.
