Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien puts guitar up for auction
The electric guitar used by Radiohead‘s Ed O’Brien during the sessions for Kid A and Amnesiac is now on eBay.
O’Brien has put his Fender Telecaster up for auction to benefit Billie Bainbridge, a four-year-old girl from the United Kingdom who has been diagnosed with a rare, inoperable brain tumor.
The six-string beauty is signed by all five members of the band, and comes with a handwritten authenticity note from O’Brien which says: “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 to and including the ‘In Rainbows’ tour.”
All proceeds from the auction will go directly to the Billie Butterfly Fund, which will pay for Billie’s treatment in Texas, since the procedure is not available in the U.K.
