Paul McCartney, Keith Richards Lead Guitar Sting Charity Campaign

(Classic Rock) Artists including Paul McCartney, Keith Richards and Mark Knopfler are donating used guitar strings in a campaign to raise money for vital research into lupus.

They'll be auctioned over the coming months on the charity's eBay page as part of the Strings For Lupus campaign, before being made into a custom bracelet for the successful bidder.

The first sale begins on March 14 (Monday), with Paul McCartney's used strings to be specially auctioned on May 10 to mark World Lupus Day.

Strings from Squeeze's performance on the BBC's political Andrew Marr show - in which they changed the lyrics for Cradle To The Grave in an on-air protest against fellow guest, UK Prime Minister David Cameron - will also be sold. Read more here.
