James Brown At Auction

Stefani, Snoop Dogg For Sale

Dearly departed legend of soul music James Brown has joined a host of stars in donating items to the 20th annual Rock For Kids Rock & Roll Charity Auction.

Taking place next month in Chicago, the auction will raise money for Chicago’s homeless and underprivileged children. To date, it has raised over $3 million to help this aim.

James Brown just keeps on giving, despite being dead – the singer has donated some special ‘James Brown Dolls’. Bands such as Interpol, TV on The Radio, Jarvis Cocker and many more have donated signed posters while The Hives have donated a signed guitar.

Legendary rock photographer Jim Marshall has donated a photo of The Beatles taken at their last ever live performance, signed by the lensman himself.

Items from Rod Stewart, Arcade Fire and The Strokes are also set to appear at the auction in Chicago next month.
