Description

    Butthole Surfers Gibby Haynes' Autographed Jacket w/Personal Effects. Texan Gibby Haynes went from Rock Underground cult hero overnight to Pop star in 1996 with the release of the single "Pepper". Well, it actually wasn't overnight -- Haynes had been sowing his musical seeds for two decades and plying his trade under a myriad of band guises, like Ashtray Baby Heads, Nine Foot Worm Makes Home Food, and Brown Reason to Live. Shock, Texas Psychedelia, Hardcore, Punk, angry, and confrontational are only a few adjectives used to describe the band and its music, but the Surfers did score a surprise Top 40 hit in 1996 with "Pepper" after signing their first big label deal with Capitol. This lot includes a well-worn (and we think on stage) Gibby Haynes-autographed Harley motorcycle jean jacket (Wrangler - Size 42) and several personal effects the consignor obtained directly from the Surfers' leader. Check out the photos online of the personal items which include correspondence related to the music video for "Pepper", and older correspondence (1990) from a fan requesting permission to use a phrase Haynes had used in a song. Finally there's the calendar from one of Gibby's favorite haunts in Austin, The New Yellow Rose, an upscale men's club. It's a 15-month calendar for 1994-95, featuring Yellow Rose dancers in provocative poses, each of whom has autographed her picture for Gibby. An unusual mix for the diehard Butthole Surfers fan!
