Drum-playing comic Al Murray supports music charity
When he is not performing in his Pub Landlord guise, Al Murray loves nothing more than a session behind his drum kit.
The comic has said he was "incredibly lucky" to have access to instruments as a child and has therefore announced his backing for a charity which helps youngsters to play music.
Murray has agreed to feature in the non-profit body's latest promotional clip and has spoken of his love of music.
He remarked: "Music enriches lives, it changes lives. If you give us your support then we will get the chance to make more musicians."
The charity is also aiming to boost its coffers by holding a silent auction on November 24th 2010.
Guitars signed by artists such as Liam Gallagher, Pete Doherty and Skunk Anansie are set to go under the hammer at the event.Posted on 29 Sep 2010 15:46 to category : Band / Celebrity News
