Eric Clapton Makes Musical Donation

Can Eric Clapton get any more awesome? In addition to doing his laundry at a public laundromat, Eric just sold more than 70 of his guitars, amps and other memorabilia to raise $2.15 million for the Crossroads Center. It’s a rehab facility in Antigua that he co-founded in 1998.

According to RollingStone.com:

Eric Clapton has sold more than 70 of his instruments and amplifiers, along with other ephemera such as the Gianni Versace suit that he wore at a 1990 concert at the Royal Albert Hall, at a charity auction in New York. Overall, Clapton raised more than $2.15 million for the Crossroads Center, a drug and alcohol rehab facility in Antigua that he co-founded in 1998.

The top-selling item at the auction was a 1948 Gibson hollow body guitar that went for $83,000, far above its estimated value of $30,000. A replica of “Blackie,” the guitarist’s famous Fender Statocaster, was sold for just over $30,000.

Let’s relive the day he was interrupted while he was doing his laundry, shall we?
