Guitar icon Jimi Hendrix proved to be the major attraction at the ROCK LEGENDS auction in London yesterday (16JUN04) - but lots relating to JOHN Lennon and Prince failed to sell.

Investors and fans arrived in their droves at the COOPER OWEN auction house to battle for the copyright for a collection of 18 Hendrix artworks, which eventually went to the highest bidder for $74,160 (GBP41,200).

However, what was believed to have been assassinated Beatles legend Lennon's last autograph - signed as he left a New York recording studio before he died on 8 December 1980 - failed to reach its reserve price of $147,600 (GBP82,000).

And the first studio recording by Prince at the age of 17 - with copyright included in the package - also failed to reach its $624,600 (GBP347,000) reserve.

The auction featured lots relating to a host of superstars, including a pair of trousers owned by SIR Elton John, a Tina Turner touring wardrobe case and one of Elvis Presley's shirts.
