   Eric Clapton's Guitars and Amps are up for Auction. Wow when I saw this headline, many thoughts ran to my head, such as why? Is he in financial trouble? Is he giving up music? I can go on and on.     http://www.ericclapton.com

Then I paused my frantic brain storming and kept reading and wondering where will it be? When will it take place? What will be really auctioned off?

So with that in no particular order: There will be over 150 items from Eric Clapton's personal collection  there will be instruments and amps from Fender, Gibson, Marshall, Martin and Music Man to name a few. These are some of the historic musical instruments associated with Eric Clapton's career from the 1970's to today.

If you would like to see the Official Auction Catalog you can request if from Bonham's & Butterfield. BTW it is walking distance to the Guitar Center ( see my earlier post about it  http://activerain.com/blogsview/1851792/the-guitar-center-in-hollywood-ca/ )

http://www.bonhams.com  Sale 19226 will be in New York, March 09th, 2011 at 13:00hr. After you received the catalog with the full-color photos of each item and you would like to see it from close up, you can visit Bonham & Butterfields at 7601 West Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90046 on Friday, February 18- Sunday February 20th, 2011 or you can see them in New York 580 Madison Ave, NY, NY, 10022 Saturday, March 5th - Wednesday March 9th, 2011.(  http://www.bonhams.com/usa/newyork/ )

Well it turns out some of you know that Eric Clapton is a recovering heroin addict and alcoholic and he founded the Crossroads Centre in Antigua. His vision was to create a Treatment Centre like no other to create a combination of therapies and address addiction and recovery in a spiritually serene environment. Hence in Antigua the Crossroads Centre became a reality in 1998. The addicts receive the treatment at the lowest possible cost level, since the Centre is nonprofit. http://crossroadsantigua.org

So the why is: to help out the Centre's Financial well being.
