According to The Rock Radio
, a 1988 MTV Moon Man award for Best New Artist In A Video, given to GUNS N' ROSES for their "Welcome To The Jungle" clip, has been acquired for sale by music memorabilia clearinghouse Rockaway Records.
The statue belonged to former Guns manager Alan Niven, who wrote an accompanying letter in which he says: "In 1988 this Moon Man was presented to me in my capacity as manager of Guns N' Roses. It ought to have really been offered since the video 'concept' was mine - but then it should have been presented to the talents I stole from - the makers of the movies Midnight Cowboy, The Man Who Fell To Earth, and Clockwork Orange."
The award is available at the Rockaway website
for a mere $13,500.
