GREAT VALLEY, N.Y. (AP) - A couch, clothes and a crib were among the belongings of late 10,000 Maniacs guitarist Rob Buck auctioned off to help pay his debts. Buck's estate raised $36,700, said auctioneer Corey Brown. "We really didn't have a choice," David Bauer, the lawyer for Buck's estate, told the Post-Journal of Jamestown. Buck, 42, a Jamestown native, died Dec. 19 at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center of complications related to liver failure. His friends and fans gathered Saturday to bid a final farewell. "I'd like to take a little bit of Rob and spread him around if I can," said 10,000 Maniacs bassist Steven Gustafson, whose buys included Buck's paintings, 10,000 Maniacs records and a lava lamp. He was outbid for Buck's favorite performance guitar - a Silver Jet-Gretsch - that went for $1,100. Jamestown resident Erol McNallie bought Buck's 1958 Studebaker for $5,100. Buck formed 10,000 Maniacs in 1981 with Gustafson, Dennis Drew, John Lombardo and Natalie Merchant.
