MusiCares Charity Sale at Julien’s to Feature Signed Guitars by Don Felder and Taylor SwiftFeb 04, 2024 12:00 EST
This February, Julien’s Auctions will present the annual MusiCares Charity Relief Auction to coincide with the 2024 Grammy Awards show. The catalog includes items personally donated by artists such as Taylor Swift, Dua Lipa, Paul McCartney, and Christine McVie. Proceeds from this event will support a relief fund that assists the music community with physical, mental health, and substance use needs, as well as emergency and disaster relief. Among the top lots of the catalog is a Yamaha C3 baby grand piano used extensively by Christine McVie while on tour with Fleetwood Mac. The keyboardist and vocalist played this piano while performing the track “Songbird” from 1977’s Rumours, which the band often played at the end of concerts. It comes to auction with a Fleetwood Mac concert DVD from 1997.
Several signed guitars will also be available in this year’s MusiCares Relief Auction. These include a signed Gibson Custom Shop guitar signed by the Eagles’ Don Felder. This is a limited edition 2010 re-issue of the iconic 1959 Les Paul Standard guitar. The auction lot includes a copy of the guitar sheet music for the Eagles’ hit song “Hotel California,” signed by Felder. Guitars signed by James Hetfield of Metallica, Slash of Guns N’ Roses, and Taylor Swift are on offer as well. Rounding out the sale is a selection of collectible couture, ranging from a gold sequin jacket worn on stage by Lionel Richie to a full-body gold “illusion” catsuit worn by Dua Lipa while on tour.
