Hey now, let's not make fun of the Stones. I love to catch them in concert every 20 years or so.

And yea, I read "Christie's auction of many of Taylor's valuables. Liz, who passed away in 2011 at 79, also made big bucks from her White Diamonds perfume and movie residuals.", but that don't seem like $230 million bank action.

She had a lifetime collection of jewelry that was basically unmatched outside of a major royal family. It all sold for huge money because of who she was and how huge the stones were etc. She was a very selective buyer of great stuff over the years. You wont see her on the list again ever most likely because once that stuff is sold its gone unlike music rights.

The thing I cant really believe is that after all these years Bob Marley's estate made 17 million dollars. I wont make that in 4 lifetimes and the guy who has been dead for 30 years does it basically every year. Man there is some good money in music.

One of her baubles - a 33 carat diamond ring - try guessing how rare it is to find a diamond big enough to cut a perfect 33 carat ring out of. y lor_auction_07092011_the_elizabeth_taylor_diamond_641105507092011_ssh. jpg
