It recently came to our attention that Lloyd’s of London, provider of specialized insurance policies (Fred Astaire’s legs, Keith Richards’s hands, etc.) also underwrote a celebrity’s chest hair. They wouldn’t reveal exactly who took out the policy, but it makes sense: there are plenty of gentlemen who’d be nothing without their chest fuzz.
So in these seemingly endless Jersey Shore-esque days of waxed, hairless torsos, we wanted to take a moment to celebrate the glorious pec-mane. Similar to our “Name That Eyebrow” contest, which awarded winners nothing at all, we’ve provided you with photos of 12 famous hairs of chest.
On Thursday, London's The Fame Bureau is auctioning off the table owned and used by the Welsh pop star in the '60s and '70s. Made by Burroughes & Watts of London c. 1880, the mahogany masterpiece made a cameo on the record sleeve of Jones' 1971 LP *She's A Lady* and is expected to fetch $100,000 - $150,000. Also on offer: Jimi Hendrix's first burnt guitar, a 1967 Fender Stratocaster, which could go for as much as $1 million; the Bechstein Grand piano used by the Beatles to record *Hey Jude* in 1968, est. $600,000 - $800,000, and a slew of other less expensive but equally entrancing lots.
