Robert Plant signed guitar up for cancer charity auction

A guitar signed by Led Zeppelin legend Robert Plant is being auctioned for charity.

Proceeds from the auction will go to Macmillan Cancer support and Neonatal Unit New Cross Hospital in  Wolverhampton.

Plant signed the guitar after a chance meeting with fundriaser Tony Meeham at a gig by Terry Reid at the Robin 2 club in Bilston on May 22.

It’s an Ibanez bearing the Zeppelin frontman’s signature.

Says Meehan: “Following our meeting, I was absolutely blown away that, on the spot Robert agreed to donate the signed Ibanez Guitar.

“What a thoughtful and kind gesture by such a legend! An amazing opportunity to own a guitar from such a great man, surely not to be missed.”

Meehan has raised to date £85,000 for local charities thanks to the generosity of local people

Bids for the guitar are invited by email to

In the meantime Plant has announced a homecoming gig for the Black Country on an intimate UK tour.

The singer, who was born in West Bromwich and is vice-president of Wolverhampton Wanderers FC, will be performing at Wolverhampton Civic Hall with his Sensational Space Shifters on September 2.
