LOS ANGELES (AP) – Heritage Auctions is expecting a lock of David Bowie’s hair to fetch more than $4,000 this weekend.

The Dallas-based auction house says Bowie’s hair will go on the block Saturday as part of an auction in Beverly Hills, California.

Heritage says the lock comes from a former employee at Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in London. She snipped some of Bowie’s hair in the 1980s to create a wig for a wax figure of the singer. Heritage says she kept it as a souvenir.

The rock superstar died in January at 69 after a battle with liver cancer.
