Elton John: SA What?

In November 2000, Elton John announced plans to sell a few articles of clothing which had been sitting around his various homes (with proceeds donated to AIDS charities). How many articles? Just 20,000.

[In 1988, John had auctioned several costumes for $8.2 million. "I don't want to go onstage," he explained, "looking like Tina Turner's grandmother anymore." (John once spent $12,000 on a ring with the words "f--- you" encrusted in diamonds and, on another occasion, dropped $850,000 on a single day's shopping spree. "For Elton," a friend once remarked, "when the going gets tough, the tough go shopping.")]
