A T-shirt for sale online that pays tribute to the recently departedLou Reed is grabbing a whole lotta attention for the wrong reasons. It's not the legendary Velvet Underground frontman's photo that's sandwiched between the words "Lou Reed" and "1942-2013."
On Jan. 29, 1972, David Bowie took the stage at the Borough Assembly Hall in Aylesbury, England, on what might have been an otherwise unremarkable night as he warmed up for his first major tour in four years. Except this was the night that Ziggy Stardust began to take shape.
You might love the music of Kiss, and you might even be one of the band's biggest fans. But you're probably nowhere near as passionate (or whatever you want to call it) as the person who just dropped nearly a quarter of a million dollars for a piece of Gene Simmons' used chewing gum.
Elton John has earned a ton of money -- and he's bought a ton of things with it. In fact, back in September of 1988, he had so many possessions crowding his four-story English mansion that he decided to sell off 2,000 of them in a massive four-day auction at Sotheby's in London.
The seller admits, right up front, that it suffers from “tears and slight fold marks," "worn corners" and "thumb tack holes." That didn't slow a 35-bid auction that netted $1,810.00 for a tattered 1973 Led Zeppelin poster.
