A completely weird story.
Another eBay find.
Listed as Mick Jagger’s pants,
given to Gram Parsons as a gift.
Like who would want these besides me?
So I bookmark the page, watched and waited.
When stuff like this shows up on eBay and it does on a fairly regular basis, usually it doesn’t sell.
Reason being is no one will take the time to ask the right questions and find out more information.
Collectors for the most part who buy online are impatient and lazy.
It’s easy to assume they’re fake with no reasonable back up or provenance.
Opening bid was $2000.
I emailed my friend Jeff Gold of Recordmecca in Venice, CA, and asked him what he thought, and was this listing legit.
They were described as pants belonging to Mick, then given to Gram Parsons as a gift.
He contacted the seller after the auction and found out the original owner these were being sold for was none other than John Nuese, Parsons former International Submarine band mate and longtime friend.
They were his and Parsons had given them to him personally.
Another rarity gone unnoticed on eBay.
A deal was struck.
I got the pants.
Jeff got 2 Gram’s stage worn cowboy shirts and a pair of boots.
A letter came from Nuese verifying the authenticity of the pants, the date they were given to him, and that not only did they belong to Mick and was worn by him, Keith also wore the pants.
The letter says “used by Mick and Keith.”
Guess in regards to Mick and Keith’s relationship, it finally clears up who wore the pants.
