Jim And Julien's: Some Sought After Mementoes

Written by Chief Editor.

Julien's latest Music Icons Auction included some Elton John items. 
 
Choices ranged from a Yamaha Motif Electric Keyboard, played by the rocker (and later autographed by him) to a Goodbye Yellow Brick Road 'Platinum' Record Award.
 
The former was sold for $21,875; the latter went for $512, the same amount that was paid for a Don't Shoot Me, I'm Only The Piano Player promotional standee.
 
Jim Irsay, whose collection includes a piano Elton used on tour, was among those taking part in the auction. He wound up with the guitar Kurt Cobain played in Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit music video, paying $4.5 million.

It's a free exhibit, to be held on the third of June at the Hammerstein Ballroom at the Manhattan Center
 
Irsay also owns memorabilia and instruments from the likes of Bob Dylan, the Beatles, Prince, Jerry Garcia, Eric Clapton, and David Gilmour. 
 
There are historical relics as well, such as the original 'Wanted' poster for John Wilkes Booth
