The Julien's Auctions, which is scheduled for November 9 in New York, plans to sell the originals of the lyrics of some of the songs of the world famous artist Elton John. The organizers of the auction themselves told about this.
During the auction, the lyrics of the famous poet Bernie Taupin, personally typed by him on a typewriter, and some even handwritten, will be put up for sale. It is known that this poet worked with Elton John for many years. He wrote over 40 lyrics of songs that, performed by Elton John, turned into real hits. In addition to the texts, several copies of the poems contain annotations and drawings.
At the November auction I plan to sell the lyrics of Benny and the Jets, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, Rocket Man, Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me, I'm Still Standing and Daniel. A special lot should be the text for the alternative version of Candle in The Wind. It was created in 1997 and is dedicated to the memory of Diana, Princess of Wales, who died that year. Presumably for this lot they plan to gain from 10 to 15 thousand dollars.
We decided not to limit ourselves only to the sale of some texts. On November 9, New York plans to sell clothes, records, photographs, a variety of valuables, as well as many other items that belong to Topin. Among them was a leather armchair, in which the writer loved to work. It was in this chair that he created a considerable number of texts. The writer himself said that he wants his things to bring only joy to the new owners.
You can purchase the lots for sale by visiting Julien's Auctions directly, but this is not required. Bets here will be accepted by phone and made via the Internet.
