Prior this week, celebrity Pink Floyd guitarist and musician David Gilmour unloaded many of his guitars – and he sold them all so he could give the returns to philanthropy charities.
Altogether, Gilmour auctioned 126 of his guitars at Christie’s, rounding up an astounding aggregate of $21 million.
The most outstanding guitar to hit the auctioneers square was the notorious dark Stratocaster that Gilmour used to record “Comfortably Numb,” “Shine on You Crazy Diamond,” and “Money”, according to Guitar World.
The hatchet wound up getting a powerful $4 million after it was acquired by the proprietor of the Indianapolis Colts.
The English hero says that he will give each penny of the auction`s deals to ecological charitable ClientEarth.
“The global climate crisis is the greatest challenge that humanity will ever face, and we are within a few years of the effects of global warming being irreversible,” tweeted Gilmour.

“We need a civilized world that goes on for all our grandchildren and beyond in which these guitars can be played and songs can be sung.”
James Thornton, ClientEarth CEO, stated: “I’d like to express my deep and heartfelt gratitude to David Gilmour for this utterly remarkable gift. David has a long history of supporting charities and I am honored that he has chosen ClientEarth to benefit from this landmark auction.”
