Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien steps up to help a 4-year-old girl with inoperable brain cancer.
Ed O’Brien is auctioning off his Telecaster for the Billie Butterfly Fund. Billie Bainbridge is a four year-old girl who has inoperable brain cancer. The money from the sale of the guitar will go to her treatment and to fund cancer research. To make matters worse Billie’s mother was also diagnosed with breast cancer.
To donate please go to billiebutterflyfund.org.
The guitar is signed by the entire band and will come with a hand written note from Ed:
“To whoever ends up with this Tele…
It was bought in the summer of ’98, just prior to us going into record the albums which came out as Kid A and Amnesiac. It was pretty much the only guitar I used at that time. It’s also been gigged a lot, up until and including the In Rainbows tour.
Hope you enjoy it – all the best
The cause is heartbreaking and 100% of the sale will go to the fund. If you have the means bid early and often to help this little girl and her family.
