Musician stopped from selling soul on eBay

The 24 year-old tried to raise money for his band

Musician stopped from selling soul on eBay
A musician has been banned from selling his soul on eBay to fund his experimental band Paradigm.

Dante Knoxx was told today (December 15) by eBay bosses that he couldn't sell it on the site just two hours before the auction was due to close.

The 24 year-old from Bournemouth got no offers for his soul, which had a starting bid of £25,000.50, but received a lot of interest.

He told The Independent: "I had lots of emails asking if I was serious and religious groups telling me I couldn't do that - others wanted to talk about my soul."

Knoxx was offering the buyer money from anything he or the band made, annual reports about his soul, as well as a birthday card each year.
