    Calling all Radiohead fans! If you are a diehard fan, we've got some good ass news for you! Radiohead guitarist Ed O'Brien is auctioning off a guitar that he actually used during the making of the band's much-adored albums Kid A and Amnesiac for charity. Wow, that's quite the prize for a lucky fan and we love that he is doing it for a good cause.

    Proceeds from the sale will go to the Billie Butterly Fund, a charity which benefits a four-year-old girl recently diagnosed with brain cancer. Aw, we're so happy that O'Brien is donating the axe for such a charitable, good cause! We hope that Billie Butterly gets better, too! She is in our thoughts + prayers and should be in yours, too!

    The winner of the auction will also receive a new guitar case and a note from O'Brien, who says he bought the guitar in the summer of 1998 and played it regularly live up to the band's "In Rainbows" tour. A personal note from O'Brien? How awesome!
