Miller Strat Pack - Celebrating 50 Years of the Fender Stratocaster

On Sale Sat 19 June 9am!

FENDER CELEBRATES FIFTY YEARS OF AN ICON
with help from Paul Carrack, Hank Marvin, The Crickets, Gary Moore, David Gilmour, Paul Rodgers,
Phil Manzanera, Mike Rutherford, Johnny Marr, Joe Walsh, Amy Winehouse
other acts to confirm.

Fender Guitars is celebrating the 50th birthday of one of rock n' roll's
greatest icons, the Stratocaster guitar by staging a very special
MILLER STRAT PACK anniversary concert on Friday 24 September. Sponsored by
MillerGenuine Draft, the charity concert will feature many of the world's
greatest living guitar legends in aid of Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy.

First unveiled in the early fifties, the Fender Stratocaster rapidly
rose to iconic status through boundary-pushing artists such as David Gilmour
with Pink Floyd, Joe Walsh for his distinctive country-rock riffage and,
probably the most famous Strat player of all time Jimi Hendrix, who
successfullypositioned the Fender as one of the most iconic guitars ever when he
was photographed on his knees, as his Strat burnt on the stage in front
of him.

Confirmed so far are Stratocaster-playing heroes who will join forces
to pay homage to the world's favourite guitar. The legends will be joined on
the night by Amy Winehouse in a triumphant combination of vintage and
contemporary artists. Spanning five decades of guitar music and with
more artists to be confirmed the MILLER STRAT PACK line-up is already a
collaboration of the biggest names history has to offer.

Martin Brady, MD Fender Europe Ltd said: "this is an historic
occasion for Fender and the Stratocaster guitar. Never before have so many
legendary names come together on one stage to celebrate an icon in rock music
and Fender are delighted to have Miller Genuine Draft's support. Nordoff-
Robbins Music Therapy is a charity that is close to our hearts and the work
they carry out is inspirational. We are incredibly excited about the
possibility of helping such a worthy cause through funds raised by the concert":

"Monies raised from this wonderful concert will help fund our outreach
programme across the UK, making Nordoff Robbins Music therapy even
moreavailable. We are delighted that Fender are supporting Nordoff-
Robbins,"
commented Audrey Hoare, Director of Fundraising.

Don't miss this unique event of guitar legends and the most exciting
new acts around.

Oh my goodness does that mean there is an event where is assured that he has to play that old thing? Maybe he´ll be in a bad mood and play a half-acoustic gibson and then leave the stage again. emoticon

Can´t imagine what he´d do there when performing in the current state, is that a wild guess or do you have first hand information that he´s on the bill?
