Axl Rose’s Ex-Wife Auctioning Off Couple’s Personal Items
A two-day sale this December in Beverly Hills will give Guns n’ Roses fans an opportunity to own a number of items from Axl Rose’s tumultuous four-year relationship with Erin Everly. That includes everything from their marriage license, issued in Clark County Nevada on April 28, 1990, to a domestic-abuse report.
Clearly, much had changed since Rose wrote the 1988 hit ‘Sweet Child O’ Mine’ for his then-girlfriend Erin, daughter of Don Everly of Everly Brothers fame. Everly filed a lawsuit against Rose in 1994, claiming both physical and emotional abuse — a case that was later settled out of court.
The auction, to be held on December 6-7, is part of an event called ’2013 Icons and Idols: Rock ‘n Roll Auction’ at Julien’s Auctions. Also included from the battling Roses: a 1990 wedding photo, a personal note from Erin to Axl on a napkin, another note from Rose to Everly (addressed “Dearest Erin”), and an insurance card for their Jeep Wrangler. Elsewhere, the auction features memorabilia from Jerry Garcia, Ronnie Montrose, Elvis Presley and others.
