A strap from the guitar Jimi Hendrix burned on stage at the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival is being offered by a New York auctioneer along with memorabilia from Michael Jackson and Kurt Cobain.

Gotta Have It! Collectibles say the seller of the Hendrix guitar strap is the audience member who caught it at the three-day rock concert in California.

The auction also includes a guitar smashed by Nirvana lead singer Cobain in 1993, the year before he died, a glove worn by Jackson at a 1997 concert in London, and a dress sported by Katy Perry in her video for I Kissed a Girl.

The late King of Pop's glove is being sold by his friend and publicist Steve Manning.

The online Gotta Have It! Rock & Roll Auction runs from Wednesday until July 22.
