Michael Joseph Jackson (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009)

(WENN.com) – A rare, sequined white glove worn by Michael Jackson has sold for
almost $65,000 at auction.

The garment, one of several hand coverings the King of Pop sported onstage and
in music promos, was given by the star to his personal artist Paul Bedard in 1984,
and he later sold it to a private collector.

It went up for auction via Nate D. Sanders in Los Angeles on Thursday and fetched
an impressive $64,850.

The sale also featured a prototype of the iconic jacket Jackson wore in the video
for his 1987 hit "Bad," which attracted a top bid of $12,500.

ROCKER BORN ON THIS DAY IN 1942

Jerome John "Jerry" Garcia (August 1, 1942 – August 9, 1995)

Garcia was the guiding force of the Grateful Dead band during their thirty-
year career and was ranked the thirteenth-greatest guitarist of all time by
Rolling Stone magazine. He lost two thirds of his right middle finger in a
wood chopping accident which gave him his unique style of guitar picking.

Jerry Garcia was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994. He
had long struggled with drug addiction, weight problems, sleep apnea,
heavy smoking, and diabetes—all of which contributed to his physical
decline. He was staying in a California drug rehabilitation facility when
he died of a heart attack.
