As tours and concerts worldwide have been cancelled or postponed due to social distancing measures, guitarist Tom Morello has taken action to try to help out those affected by the hiatus in live music. Morello has announced on Instagram that he is auctioning a signed Fender Telecaster on CharityBuzz to help unemployed music touring crew who are struggling due to the coronavirus pandemic. A Washburn acoustic guitar signed in 2004 by Ringo Starr and his All-Starr band is included in the same auction. The money raised will go to the House of Blues Music Forward Foundation.
