The painting is an oil and wax painting titled ”ËœJesus and Mary’ and is expected to fetch up to £16,000. The title and the artwork is a nod to the Creation band Jesus And mary Chain who were an influence on the early Roses.

Also up for sale are paintings by the late Paul Cannell, whose band I once produced, including the iconic image below which featured on the Primal Scream, ‘Screamadelica’ album cover and have guide prices of £12,000.
