John Lennon's Toilet Auctions for $15K A toilet that was formerly in the home of music legend John Lennon was sold at auction for $14,740, ten times the expected sale amount.  The story behind the toilet is that it was in John Lennon's Berkshire, England home until he had the toilet removed and replaced.  The bathroom renovator stored the toilet in his shed for the past 40 years.  The organizer of the Beatles memorabilia auction, Anne-Marie Trace of The Beatles Store in Liverpool, stated that the toilet was "the most unusual item we've ever had in our auction."  I would hope so...  more info New Bruce Springsteen Set Out in Novemeber Bruce Springsteen is releasing a box set of music titled "The Promise: The Darkness On The Edge Of Town Story" on November 16.
