eric clapton sells guitars for millions

And we thought Stephen Colbert's self-portrait sold for a lot of money…

At a Bonhams New York auction yesterday, Eric Clapton's 75 guitars and 55 amps sold for a total of $2.15 million! WOW!

Best part about it? The proceeds are going to benefit "a drug and alcohol treatment center Clapton founded in the West Indies."

As a recovered addict himself, Clapton formed nonprofit Crossroads Centre in Antigua in '98 in an effort to give back.

Good for you, Eric! This is a wonderful gesture! You've gained some serious points in our book for this one.

We still can't get over that number! $2.15 million! Fantastic!

How much would U pay for an Eric Clapton guitar?

    He should put a couple of dollars aside for a washer/dryer so he doesn't have to keep using the laundromat!! Search keywords "The Media Jerk" to read heartless criticism of the day's biggest celebrity news stories!!

    The amazingness that is Clapton doesn't need to be in your book at all mario.

    he is my godfather!

    Actually, 2.15m seems surprisingly low for that collection…I'll bet he is disappointed.

    This is his third auction. In the past two of his guitars, Blackie, a pieced together Fender Stat and his Gibson ES-335 (the 'Crossroads' guitar) sold for close to one million each. Each of these guitars hold great R&R history.

    I wouldn't. I'd buy the exact same antique model for a song and still get the same sound. You should see my American made Fender Mustang bass.
