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

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

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

The auction also includes a guitar smashed by Nirvana lead singer Cobain in 1993, the year before he died. There's a glove worn by Jackson at a 1997 concert in London. And there's a dress worn 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.
