The clumps of hair were cut off by Willie Nelson in 1983 and given to fellow country star Waylon Jennings, who died in 2002, as a show of solidarity to support Jennings’ attempt at sobriety.

Willie Nelson’s plaits are listed among 500 items that once belonged to Waylon Jennings, including Buddy Holly’s motorcycle, which he was given after the Peggy Sue hitmaker’s death in 1959, Muhammad Ali’s boxing gloves and a robe and a letter John Lennon sent to the singer.
