In May 2002, Fifty Years of Rock and Roll opened at Cleveland, Ohio's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. But December 31 is the last day to see an array of costumes, stage props and instruments.

Clothing includes a seventies Bob Mackie-designed outfit for Elton, Prince's Purple Rain coat and Sly Stone's red jumpsuit. Other items range from Alice Cooper's guillotine to ZZ Top's drum kit.

Meanwhile across the pond, Elton's self-portrait is included in the current issue of Q magazine. It's from the Q Awards, when he and other stars were asked to draw pictures of themselves.
