CASH IN SLOW­HAND

Closer Weekly - - Hellos & Goodbyes -

You got me on my knees. As part of its en­ter­tain­ment mem­o­ra­bilia auc­tion on Dec. 11, Bon­hams in Lon­don is putting on the block Eric Clap­ton’s hand­writ­ten open­ing lyrics to his iconic song “Layla.” Writ­ten in red ball­point on a sheet of sta­tionery from Mi­ami Beach’s Thun­der­bird Mo­tel, the two stan­zas are ex­pected to fetch be­tween $45,000 to $57,000. That’s roughly $3,800 a word.
