The Noel Monk Collection - October Auction Event

Backstage Auctions, Inc. is proud to present their upcoming auction event which will feature the personal and private
collection of Noel Monk, music industry veteran and most notably manager for Van Halen and tour manager for the Sex Pistols.

Noel Monk’s career reads like a storybook – and one that we all wish we could have been part of. His first and formative years took place under the wings of Bill Graham as the production manager at the Fillmore East in New York. From pouring Southern Comfort for Janis Joplin, fixing Chuck Berry’s broken amp to working the historic 1969 Woodstock Festival, Monk quickly learned the ropes of the music business.

The early 1970s brought new experiences for Monk as he continued his career on the road with The Rolling Stones, Johnny Cash, Bonnie Raitt, James Taylor, Tom Waits, David Sanborn, GO, Gasolin, Trapeze and Blue Cheer – to name just a few.

The auction will go live on October 13, 2018 with a special VIP preview of the entire online catalog beginning on September 26, 2018.
