David Gilmour auctioned his guitars and raised $21M for a climate change charity

Floyd's David Gilmour auctioned 126 of his guitars for a record-breaking $21 million at a New York charity auction Thursday to fight against climate change.

The auction lasted eight hours and had bidders from 66 countries around the world, according to British auction house Christies, which handled the sales.

"The Black Strat," a 1969 Fender Stratocaster which Gilmour used to record Pink Floyd albums "The Dark Side of the Moon," "Wish You Were Here" and "The Wall," sold for $3,975,000 -- a new world record for a guitar at an auction.
