Jerry Garcia's Appliances To Be Auctioned
    #4996812 - 11/29/05 11:02 PM (18 years, 7 months ago)

WTF? Things are crazy nowadays....

SAN FRANCISCO - Jerry Garcia's dishwasher, toilets and other home appliances will be auctioned by a nonprofit group hoping to raise more than $100,000.

ADVERTISEMENT

The items, which also include stereo cabinets, cupboards and a freezer, will be available for bidding on the online auction site eBay from Dec. 18 through Dec. 24.

Revenue will benefit the Sophia Foundation, a San Francisco Bay area nonprofit that aids children and families during marital separations and divorces, said the group's chairman, Henry Koltys.

Koltys bought the Nicasio, Calif. home of Garcia, the lead singer and guitarist of the Grateful Dead, in 1997, two years after Garcia died of a heart attack.

An appraiser has valued the items at about $75,000, but Koltys said he expects people will end up spending more.

"There's a lot of Deadheads out there with money, and they want a piece of Jerry somehow."

I'm sure the Garcia estate can donate more money without having to sell these items, but everything helps. They could just as easily thrown these appliances into the trash where they be worth nothing (or possibly found and sold by someone looking to get rich). At least something is being provided to the needy - better than nothing and probably 1000x more than most self-righteous deadheads give to the poor.

Unfortunately, I'll be bidding on the MAPS auction for "A dinner with Rick Doblin and Family".

...most subjects find the experience valuable, some find it frightening, and many say that is it uniquely lovely.

I'd buy Jerry Garcia's favorite acoustic guitar, only so I could smash the neck off, ruin the strings, shit on the designs, and use the hole in the body of the guitar as a spitoon.
