Elton's Mum Unloads

Shiela Farebrother, the mother of Elton John, is downsizing.  Her move means an avalanche of Elton memorabilia is headed to auction.  Included in the massive collection are 100+ gold and platinum album awards, tour jackets, backstage passes, tour clothing and other artifacts that Elton, his label or his manager passed along to her.  A representative of the auction house considers the October 19 sale of 227 pieces qualifies as one of the most unique sales his firm has ever hosted.  He says Farebrother's soon-to-be former residence had a large games room that was packed with items her son had given her.  Among the more unique items going under the hammer are a diamond encrusted crucifix and double set of framed discs presented after her son's US album sales cracked the 43 million mark.
