A painting by Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison's hand written lyrics to LA Woman are expected to attract high bids at an auction being conducted by Cameo Fine Art Auctioneers in the UK on August 3. The signed acrylic depiction of a snake and a trio of eyes that was painted by the guitar great in 1967 was included in a Hendrix exhibit at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York nearly 20 years ago. The yellow sheet with the lyrics to the title song for the 1971 Doors album is the actual piece of paper Morrison used as his reference in the studio when the Doors recorded the song. Also in the sale is a collection of photos of Beatles members in their homes taken by a 15 year-old paper girl that managed to muster the courage to knock on Paul McCartney's door, who later gave her the addresses for John, George, and Ringo. Sue Baker, now 59, marvels still at '...how friendly and ordinary they were', and that such famous musicians were kind enough to allow her to visit with her friend and younger brother.
