Waylon Jennings Auction Includes Handwritten Letter to John Lennon, Willie Nelson’s Braids


Phoenix’s Musical Instrument Museum will host an auction of Waylon Jennings memorabilia this October, put together by his widow, Jessi Colter.

The auction is set to feature over 2,000 items, including an Ariel Cyclone motorcycle originally owned by the great Buddy Holly and gifted to Jennings by the singer, who was Holly’s bass player on his final tour.

Oh, and then there’s Willie Nelson‘s braids, which he cut off in 1983 to support Jennings road to sobriety. Yes, you can own Willie Nelson’s hair.
