Buy David Gest's Stuff

Posted on Mon, Oct 22, 2007 at 4:00 AM

According to a story in The Independent David Gest will be auctioning off his large collection of memorabilia through an British auction house on December 5th. Among the items up for bid are the gold disc for the Rolling Stones' "Satisfaction," sheet music signed by the Four Tops, and a pair of Beatles' sneakers.

Gest says he began collecting as a teenager after he attended a memorabilia show with Michael Jackson. His collection is so large that he added a third story to his Memphis home.

Gest tells the reporter that his decision to sell part of his collection stems from his stint on the British reality show, I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here.. "All of a sudden, this life of collecting things seemed... I started to ask, 'Can you live without all that?' And I realised that if I could live in the jungle with so little food and still have a happy life, then everything I thought was important just wasn't."
