AUCTION: Jerry Donahue Telecaster, signed by rock royalty

Jerry Donahue collage800
Matt Worley and Tony Kelsey have done sterling work to help raise money for our dear friend Jerry Donahue who is recovering from a stroke in Los Angeles.

Now, thanks to JHS Musical Instruments, Matt and Tony have a signature Jerry Donahue Telecaster which they have had signed by Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones, Steve Winwood, Mark Knopfler, Jeff Lynne, Dave Gilmour, Richard Thompson, Pete Townshend, Andy Fairweather-Lowe, Albert Lee, Martin Barre, Joe Brown, Tony Iommi, Al Stewart, Brian Wilson and Al Jardine and - 'yours truly!'

This is a fantastic achievement and we know that the guitar will raise many thousands of pounds to help Jerry get some more treatment to aid his recovery. Watch the Fairport website for when the auction will happen .

Meantime, here are some pics of our guitar heroes signing the guitar.

Dylan Project farewell

Gorup shot small
Well, me doing a little too much work last year meant that I quit the Dylan Project and missed the last three gigs, due to fatigue. Apologies to all concerned. The older I get, the more I find that I have to be enjoying what I am doing – or not do it at all. Hang on though I’m still typing!

A great band which, sadly for me, has run its course after 20 happy years..
