Elton John’s mother is to sell off 40 platinum and gold discs from the star’s chart-topping pop career.
The treasure trove for pop fans also includes the disc for his first major hit single, 1970’s Your Song, a platinum award for the first million sales of his 1973 album Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, and another for the phenomenal success of Candle In The Wind as a re-released tribute to the Princess of Wales after Diana’s death in 1997.
Sheila Farebrother, 85, is even putting up for auction copies of recordings Sir Elton has given her over the years, as well as the VIP passes she used for backstage access to her son when he was on tour.
