the secret to james brown's bouffant hair did not die with him
Christie’s auctioned off James Brown’s estate and his family wasn’t thrilled with the results. Among the 317 items up for sale were Brown’s fabulous wardrobe of jumpsuits, capes, and boots, along with his trophies, leather couches, and even his Walk of Fame star. Everything brought high prices but the total take was $857,688 – about half of what was expected. Our personal favorite item was brown’s 1960’s salon hair dryer. When we met him backstage at Chicago’s Regal theater, he and his pink foam rollers were under that dryer. It went for $10,625.
