Jim Morrison's Vulgar Peanuts Comic
Jim Morrison of the Doors was found dead in a bathtub, July 3rd, 1971 at only 27 years old.
Several rock memorabilia items are up for auction through Lelands including an autographed Beatles postcard and a bizarre and vulgar rendition of a “Peanuts” comic, made by The Doors frontman, Jim Morrison.
The Peanuts Comic
- Jim Morrison pasted-on Peanuts character cut-outs with his own handwritten dialogue.
- The second frame shows Lucy pleading with Charlie Brown: “I’ll give you 15 [cents] if you’ll f–k me, Charlie Brown” with the reply: “Throw in your tricycle and it’s a deal, Baby.”
- In another frame, Charlie Brown asks Linus, “What’s wrong kid?” to which Linus answers: “I think I got Syphilis from that whore down the street.”
- Signed “Jim” in the upper right corner, the full piece measures 13.5″ x 3”
From Rolling Stone:
Lelands is also advertising a handful of other unique Beatles lots, including a vintage Ludwig drum set designed exactly like Starr’s (starting price $1,500) and an unused ticket for a 1965 Beatles gig in Portland, Oregon. The ticket — currently priced at $1,100 — reportedly belonged to a girl whose religious mother forbade her from attending the show; the ticket was confiscated and kept in the family Bible in order to ward off evil spirits.
Among the other notable items currently up for auction are unpublished original negatives of the Who taken at a 1965 gig (starting price, $1,000); and a sharp, rhinestone-studded suit James Brown wore onstage ($1,000)
