ELTON John was flogging some of his old stuff. Plus ca chance for Mr Candle In The Wind. For sale at Gorringes Auctioneers in Lewes, East Sussex, was memorabilia belonging to his mother Shelia Farebrother. Lots included 100 gold and platinum discs, tour jackets and VIP passes Mrs Farebrother used for backstage access at his concerts. And – yep – two multi-platinum discs marking the success of Candle In The Wind, which recorded more than 33 million sales when it was re-released in tribute to Diana, Princess of Wales in 1997. Buy it – or else he’ll sing it again…

Update: the whole lots sold for £28,820.
