Hollywood star Steven Seagal is set to launch a charity to help provide underprivileged youngsters in Britain with guitars.
The actor, who began playing the guitar aged five, is currently touring the UK with his blues band THUNDERBOX.
Seagal has one of the world's most important blues guitar collections, including instruments that once belonged to Jimi Hendrix, Muddy Waters and Albert King, and wants to give kids the chance to enjoy the guitar as much as he does.
He says, "Music is the language of the gods that can bring all people together. What better starting point than learning to play the guitar."
The initiative will be administered by Ciro's Pizza Pomodoro.
