Sweet Relief Musicians Fund is offering a one-of-a-kind Clash t-shirt screened by Paul Simonon, the seminal British punk band’s visual artist and bassist.

In 1977 Simonon gave this shirt to punk priestess Patti Smith. Smith later gave it to her drummer, Jay Dee Daugherty. Daugherty donated it to Sweet Relief, so the charity could utilize it to raise funds for musicians who find themselves in need.

Sweet Relief originally intended to raffle this shirt to a fan. Unfortunately, international and national sweepstakes laws forbid raffles without there also being an offer of free entry. Giving the shirt away would defeat the primary purpose of giving financial aid to musicians in medical need.

The ten-day auction will be posted on eBay at www.ebay.com/sweetrelief from noon Saturday, February 16 to noon Tuesday, February 26, 2008.

For further details please visit Sweet Relief’s web site http://www.sweetrelief.org.

Sweet Relief Musicians Fund is a Los Angeles-based national charity providing financial assistance to musicians who are struggling to make ends meet while facing illness, disability, or age-related problems. There are many talented artists who will never be rich or famous, but who play essential roles in the transcendent connection between fans and music. Sweet Relief tries to redress some of the imbalance between the few in music who have a lot and many who struggle but persist in their art.
