A woman from Nottinghamshire who received a personal note from Jimi Hendrix says she's been overwhelmed by the media attention she's received since deciding to put the note up for auction.
69-year-old Anthea Connell from West Bridgford was given the handwritten note by the guitar legend back in 1967, when Hendrix came off the stage to speak to her and then wrote on a guitar strings packet, ‘To Anthea. Love and kisses to you forever. I wish I could really talk to you. Stay sweet. JimiHendrix’.
With the note now due to go under the hammer today (23 October), Anthea says the media frenzy caused by the news of the auction has left her 'feeling like Paris Hilton.'
Anthea's signed note goes on sale at Hansons Auctioneers in Derbyshire later today.
It is expected to fetch around £2,000 to £3,000.
