In other signs of a possible economic turnaround, an anonymous bidder paid $64,000 for John Bonham‘s (drummer for Led Zeppelin) gong. Although the purchase price was significantly lower than the anticipated $120,000 auction price, it’s both comforting and disorienting to know that someone has enough cash to shell out that much money for someone’s gong. I wonder where they’ll display their purchase.
