Weller And May Back Giant Guitar Charity Project
British rockers PAUL WELLER and BRIAN MAY are backing a project to build giant guitars for charity. GOING UNDERGROUND star Weller has launched the Gibson GuitarTown London exhibition to construct 30 huge fibreglass guitars. The free-standing constructions will be designed by various musicians and will be displayed around London for 12 weeks beginning on 1 June next year (07), after which they will be auctioned off to raise funds for The Prince's Trust, Nordoff-Robbins and the Teenage Cancer Trust. Weller says, "I am proud to be associated with the Gibson GuitarTown London campaign as it combines my passion and appreciation for the guitar, whilst raising money and awareness for three very worthy and deserving charities."
