I'm just glad that money didn't go to charity or anything.

My ghod, we're feeling cynical today, aren't we?

Ok, I'll add: damn, but he's getting old and devilish looking...

Devilish? If I were casting a new Flash Gordon movie, I would beg him to play Ming the Merciless.

Hey maybe the guy who sold it will give the two million to charity! You never know.

Dave, you selfish bastard! The man should have donated the piano to charity, Michael's should given the money to charity. The charity could then attempt to sell the piano, to someone else who should really just give the money to charity. This continues for the rest of time. In fact, everyone who looks at the piano, should empty their pockets and slink away. That is what should have happened.
At least the piano will stay in the UK, this country sucks enough without yet another hippie piano hogging up space.

Why the hell should he give his money to charity? It's his money.

better to buy the piano than spend it on another record. or on male prostitutes--lord knows he's stopped trolling for them.

Oh, you non-pianists, you. Perhaps Lennon is his Beethoven. If somehow I had the means to purchase one of Bach's harpsichords, you can bet I'd consider plunking down the dough for it. It's all about what your passion is.

Some people plunk down $2 million on an art piece. That, to me, the non-art-fan, is as laughable as his buying the piano for $2 million is to you.

Besides, George Michael regularly gives large sums of money as well as personal time to charitable organisations which he supports, which is more than can be said of most people and many celebrities.

Bully on him for being able to bid 2 mil on the piano. If I had it and could buy one of Elton John's pianos, I'd be all over that.
