That's crazy! If I were so idle rich that I could just drop $5 million United States dollars on guitars from a British rock star I would not do this, as this new rich guy Jim Irsay did, and would instead just live comfortably and travel to visit family in Europe as much as I could. I have bought and sold rare books before, but I have never paid that much money for any of them.

Outside of football, Irsay has made notable investments in music and memorabilia. In 2001 Irsay purchased the original manuscript of On the Road, or "the scroll": a continuous, one hundred twenty-foot scroll of tracing paper sheets that Jack Kerouac cut to size and taped together, for $2.43 million. And on May 5, 2018, he purchased an original printing of the 1939 book Alcoholics Anonymous with notes handwritten by the author Bill Wilson, cofounder of AA, for $2.4 million at auction.[15]

Irsay is a big fan of British rock band The Who. Irsay also has purchased guitars originally owned by Elvis Presley,[16] George Harrison, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, Jerry Garcia[16], Prince[17] and David Gilmour[18] as well as a Ludwig drum set belonging to Ringo Starr.[19] On June 20, 2019, Irsay paid a record $3.975M for a guitar, known as The Black Strat, formerly owned by Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour.

Exactly, plus, I is pretty sure even after buying the guitars, he will still have enough cash to take his family to Europe? ..............Peace.......joe
