Razorlight Drummer Auctions Kit For Charity

by | 16 May 2008

Razorlight drummer Andy Burrows is to celebrate the upcoming release of his solo album by auctioning a vintage drum kit for charity.
Burrows' debut offering The Colour of My Dreams is released on May 26th and on the day the album hits the shelves, the bidding on internet auction site eBay for the stickman's costly Ludwig kit will be closed.

The proceeds from the sale of the unique kit, which Burrows used while recording Razorlight's self-titled second album, will go to an appeal for a Winchester-based hospice for terminally ill children, called Naomi House.

Proceeds from the auction of the drum kit, as well as contributions from the sale of Burrow's album, will be used to build a specialised teenage wing of the hospice, to be named 'Jack's Place'.

The auction for the drum kit, which Burrows calls his "favourite of all time", goes live on eBay at 18:00 BST on Friday May 16th, closing on May 26th.

"We are really excited that Andy has decided to sell his drum kit on eBay," said a spokesman for the site.

"Not only will his video listing for the kit be an exclusive live performance by a member of one of the UK's most popular bands, but the auction is a unique opportunity for one fan to own a true one-off.

"With all proceeds going to such a worthy cause, we hope that it raises a large amount of money for Naomi House," the spokesman added.

Two days after the release of The Colour of My Dreams, Burrows will be joined at London's Union Chapel for a special performance of the album, with guest appearances from Razorlight bandmate Johnny Borrell, The Boy Least Likely To and Guillemots' Fyfe Dangerfield, while a "very special guest" will be in charge of event catering.
