Paul Weller Launches Gibson Guitar Town!
Paul Weller officially launched Gibson Guitartown London a community inspired music and arts campaign designed to raise money for The Prince?s Trust, Nordoff-Robbins and Teenage Cancer Trust charities.
Thirty, ten-foot free-standing fibreglass Gibson Les Paul guitars will be creatively designed by renound British musicians such as Paul Weller and Brian May. Each sculpture will be individually hand painted by London based artists who enter the project via the www.londonguitartown.com site. They will then be displayed by Tower Bridge from June 1st 2007 for twelve weeks. All the guitars will then be auctioned for the three charities.
?I am proud to be associated with the campaign as it combines my passion for the guitar, whilst raising money and awareness for three very worthy charities,? said Paul Weller.
