Late Free Star Paul Kossoff's Guitar To Be Auctioned

(Classic Rock) Free icon Paul Kossoff's guitar is to be sold at auction for the first time in December. He played the sunburst 1959 Gibson Les Paul from 1970 until his death in 1976, and refused to be parted from it even after he broke its neck during a show.

It was later given to Beckett guitarist Arthur Ramm - who lent Kossoff his own instrument on the night the Gibson was broken. Auctioneers Bonhams will sell it on December 10.

Entertainment memorabilia specialist Natalie Downing says: "Kossoff is one of the generation of rock stars who lost their life to the excesses of the industry. His incredible musical talent continues to be recognized." Read more here.
