Muse, Foo Fighters and Rolling Stones donate to Sub Pop auction

Bands offer memorabilia to honour Sub Pop's Andy Kotowicz

Muse, Foo Fighters, Cee Lo Green and The Rolling Stones have all donated signed memorabilia to an auction run by Sub Pop Records.

The auction has been set up to help out the family of Sub Pop vice president Andy Kotowicz, who died from injuries he sustained in a car accident last month.

Both Muse and the Foo Fighters have donated autographed guitars, while The Rolling Stones have offered a signed copy of their 1969 book Let It Bleed. There’s also a guitar signed by Cee Lo Green and James Blunt up for grabs.

Other artists to have contributed memorabilia include Band Of Horses, Bon Iver, The Faint and The Dead Weather.

As well as the auction, there are also going to be two benefit shows to help raise money. The first takes place at Seattle’s Showbox At The Market venue on December 4 and features Wolf Eyes and Mudhoney. The second is the following Wednesday (8) at the Savoy in Ypsilanti, Michigan and has Secret Eyes and Swimsuit playing.

Kotowicz joined Sub Pop in 2000 and had worked with Mudhoney, Pissed Jeans and Comets On Fire among others.
