A Profiles in history auction being conducted in Carlsbad, California December 18 has a couple of very big ticket collectibles available to high bidders.  The item expected to bring the biggest bucks is a notbook of handwritten lyrics, poems and observations recorded by Jim Morrison during his last year. The notebook was presented to Graham Nash as a gift from his manager, Bill Siddons, who was dispatched to claim the late Doors singer's body after his death in 1971.  The 'Frankenstrat' guitar Eddie Van Halen used during his group's Diver Down tour and in recording sessions for the 1984 album is expected to draw a top bid between $100,000 and $150,000.  Some proceeds from the sale of the fabled axe will be donated to guitarist Jason Becker, who is suffering from ALS.
