The sale of Jerry Garcia’s favourite guitar, Wolf, has raised millions of dollars for a civil rights group.More than 20 years after the death of the Grateful Dead founder, the auction of the custom-made guitar fetched a total of $3.2m (£2.5m).It was bought at a New York charity concert by Brian Halligan, CEO of marketing group HubSpot and a lifelong fan of the band – or a “Deadhead”.The money raised will go to the Southern Poverty Law Centre.Halligan bought Wolf for $1.9m, including the buyer’s premium, and had his $1.6m pre-premium bid matched by an anonymous charity.
