Rock My Collection

Thank you for participating in our first ever "Rock My Collection" AXS TV Auction - this one-of-a-kind TV-to-Auction experience was made possible by your support!

This summer and fall, Gotta Have Rock and Roll partnered with AXS TV to bring you the Rock My Collection TV Show. Collectors were invited to bring their items on the show and tell their story of how they acquired them - whether they were thrown into a crowd at a concert, were family heirlooms, or personalized gifts from the musicians themselves. While the show aired, from August – October 2021, Gotta Have Rock and Roll held an ongoing online auction, right here on our site, of some of the lots featured on the show.

Stay tuned for updates regarding next year!

APPELLATE COURT UNANIMOUSLY RULES IN FAVOR OF GOTTAHAVEROCKANDROLL.COM AND AGAINST MADONNA OVER THE AUCTION OF HER PERSONAL ITEMS INCLUDING TUPAC SHAKUR’S BREAK-UP LETTER

Madonna

Tupac Shakur Handwritten & Signed Letter to Madonna from Prison

On Tuesday June 4, 2019, the Appellate Division of the New York Supreme Court, in a unanimous 5-0 decision, ruled in favor of GottaHaveRockandRoll.com and against Madonna over the auction of her personal items including a breakup letter from rap legend Tupac Shakur. “We won at the trial court, and now a unanimous appeals court in Manhattan has sided for us said owners of GottaHaveRockandRoll.com. Jeffrey Haas, attorney for GottaHaveRockandRoll.com, added, “My co-counsel Hartley Bernstein and I were fully prepared in the event Madonna appealed the soundly decided lower court decision, and it was gratifying to see that justice continued to be blind to Madonna’s celebrity and money and the alchemy of her high profile legal counsel.” Added co-counsel Hartley Bernstein, “Celebrity does not trump the facts. Here, those facts were plain as day. Ms. Lutz, the consignor, owns the items and GottaHaveRockandRoll.com is free to sell them on her behalf.”
