English Rock band Radiohead has donated a signed guitar used on the recordings of Kid A and Amnesiac to be auctioned for charity.
According to NME.com, guitarist Ed O’Brien donated his Fender Telecaster to the Billie Butterfly Fund, to help raise money for four year old Billie Bainbridge, who has a rare, inoperable brain tumor. The campaign is raising funds to treat Billie’s tumor in Texas as treatment is not available in the UK.
The guitar is signed by all the members of the band; Thom Yorke, Ed O’Brien, Jonny Greenwood, Colin Greenwood and Phil Selway and it also comes with a handwritten authenticity note from O’Brien in which he explains the guitar was bought in 1998 and was pretty much the only guitar he used at the time.
