British jazz musician and TV presenter JOOLS HOLLAND's beloved piano fetched GBP6,000 ($10,800) at a London auction yesterday (02OCTO6). The former SQUEEZE star played his prized Yamaha GT7 when he performed with a host of music legends, including SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY, TOM JONES, PRINCE BUSTER and THE BLOCKHEADS.

"Tom Jones, Paul MCCartney, SOLOMON BURKE, JEFF BECK and many others have all been accompanied by this piano, played this piano, placed drinks, notes, coats, hats, private implements on this piano."
