Pearl Jam donate autographed Telecaster

Posted 06 Nov 2010 in Artist News, Guitar Heroics

Pearl Jam have donated a signed Fender Telecaster to raise money for the family of Andy Kotowicz, the marketing director for Seattle-based Sup Pop records.

Kotowicz was killed in a Ballard car accident last month. His daughter, also in the car during the crash, was saved by a bystander.

Members of Pearl Jam, one of Seattle’s most notable hometown bands, knew Kotowicz. The band explained why they chose to donate the guitar on their website and the auction listing.

The music world lost a dear friend on October 24, 2010 when the life of Sub Pop Marketing Director Andy Kotowicz was tragically cut short as the result of injuries he sustained in a car accident.

To help raise proceeds for the Andy Kotowicz Family Foundation, Pearl Jam is auctioning off an autographed Fender Standard Telecaster FSR guitar in Butterscotch. This item was signed by all members of the band on October 30, 2010. Guitar comes with a Fender Telecaster Gig Bag.

The auction ends Nov. 24 and you can check it out at
