An arrest card that includes the signature and fingerprints of guitar legend JIMI HENDRIX will be up for auction next month. Hendrix filled out the card after he was detained in Toronto on May 3rd, 1969. After arriving at Pearson International Airport, a customs agent found a small amount of heroin and hashish in his luggage. The document will be sold by RR Auction in Boston. The pop culture auction will start on March 8th and will run for seven days. Bobby Livingston, executive vice president of RR Auction, said the accompanying mug shot of Hendrix sold for $14,000 in 2006. He expects the arrest card to go for about the same. The document includes details about Hendrix, including his full name (James Marshall Hendrix), date of birth, New York address and a noted feature of "scar on right eye." All 10 of his fingerprints are visible on the card and his signature is seen in the top left corner. "It's one of those things I wouldn't be surprised if it ended up in a museum," Livingston said.

ANTHRAX "must cancel its upcoming tour" due to scheduling conflicts. A message from the band follows: "Unfortunately, Anthrax announces it has to cancel its upcoming European tour due to scheduling conflicts. The band members sincerely apologize to all of their fans and hope to see them very soon."
