TAPE_NUMBER: EN9922 IN_TIME: 10:45:35 LENGTH: 02:42 SOURCES: APTN RESTRICTIONS: Personality rights must be cleared *** Music/performacne rights must be cleared FEED: SCRIPT: xfa London, June 1 1999 AXE FALLS FOR CLAPTON In a move that will upset his millions of adoring fans, ERIC CLAPTON, the 'God' of guitarists, is flogging his axes. Clapton posed with his beloved guitars at auctioneers Christie's London saleroom this morning, June 1, and the instruments will go under the hammer in America later this month. The decision comes because Clapton has decided to take time out from his tough music schedule of albums and tours to spend more time working with recovering drug addicts. Some of the money raised from the sale will go to the treatment centre Clapton founded. A former drug addict and alcoholic himself, Clapton has become increasingly interested in helping people who find themselves in the same situation. Clapton, known as 'Slowhand' to his fans, came to prominence in the 1960s playing with groups like CREAM, THE YARDBIRDS and BLIND FAITH. But he almost lost it all, including his life, through drink and drug addictions. The methods that were used to save him, he now wants to help pass on to others in the same boat and he has spent a great deal of time and money helping fellow addicts and founded the Crossroads treatment centre in Antigua. It is estimated that the sale of around 100 instruments could raise as much as 750,000 US dollars for the centre. It will take place in Christie's New York branch on June 24. There will various Fender, Gibson, Martin and Guild guitars for sale. The most important item is 'Brownie', Clapton's much loved 1956 Sunburst Fender Stratocaster on which Clapton probably played the riffs to his most famous song LAYLA. RICHARD CHAPMAN, Christie's expert consultant on guitars, says this is an important collection for any serious rock music fan. Meanwhile it is a sad day for Clapton's long time guitar technician LEE DICKSON who has had the job of caring for the instruments.

SOUNDBITE: (English): Kerry Keane, Christie's auction house: "Compared with the items offered in our sale in 1999, in Eric Clapton's words, these were the instruments he held back, these were the items that he felt he couldn't give up, could not live without, he refers to them as his 'A-team'." 14. Various of guitars STORYLINE: British rock star Eric Clapton will auction off 56 of his guitars in New York on Thursday to raise money for a new drug treatment centre in Antigua and Barbuda, said the centre's marketing manager, Kim Martin. Proceeds from the auction at Christie's will go towards the recently completed 16-bed Bevon House, a centre for recovering patients that is an expansion of Clapton's Crossroads Centre. More than 500,000 US dollars is needed to finance the construction, and money raised through the auction will also go towards paying treatment fees for patients who can't afford them. Fifty-nine year old Clapton, who overcame his own heroin addiction years ago, underwrote the Crossroads Centre, which opened in 1998 in the Caribbean country where the guitarist has a home. According to Martin, the rock star described the guitars up for auction as "the cream of my collection." Clapton auctioned off other guitars in 1999 and said in a statement that the ones being sold now are guitars he didn't want to let go of in the last sale. "I kept them back from the first auction because I seriously couldn't consider parting with them at that point," he said. Highlights include 'Blackie', the unique composite Fender Stratocaster, circa 1956, that Clapton played throughout the early 1970s until the mid 1980s and the 1964 cherry red Gibson ES-335, the second electric guitar he ever bought and the one most associated with his days with Cream. The auction also contains the 1937 Martin, 000-42, used extensively on The 'Unplugged' recording; and the Fender Stratocaster 'Crash 3' designed by famous street artist Crash and the first of Clapton's graffiti guitars to be offered at the sale. The newly built complex, located about 1 mile (1.5 kilometres) outside the capital of St. John's is separate from the Crossroads Centre at Willoughby Bay on Antigua's southeast coast. Drug and alcohol addicts first will have to complete a 29-day treatment at Crossroads before moving to Bevon House, where they are to hear lectures and receive counselling and help in looking for jobs.

TAPE_NUMBER: EN9926 IN_TIME: 10:00:07 LENGTH: 03:40 SOURCES: APTN/WARNER MUSIC RESTRICTIONS: No re-use/re-sale film/video clips without clearance FEED: VARIOUS (THE ABOVE TIME-CODE IS TIME-OF-DAY) SCRIPT: xfa RECORD SALE FOR CLAPTON GUITARS Story: Clapton Auction Location: New York Date: June 24 1999 The man who sixties fans called God, has enjoyed a record making sale of some of his personal guitar collection. ERIC CLAPTON had originally put up 100 of his most famous guitars for auction to raise money for his drug rehabilitation project, THE CROSSROADS CENTRE in Antigua. The prices however, far out reached the auctioneer's estimates eventually raising over five million dollars and setting a new record for the price paid for a guitar in auction. The collection included a 1959 Gibson ES-355TD, a guitar associated with Clapton since his early days with the band CREAM. The sale model had a distinctive 'Star burst' finish and was used extensively for his concerts and recordings in the nineties. While auctioneers Christie's had estimated a price of between twenty and thirty thousand dollars, it actually went for nearly eighty thousand, over twice the anticipated bid. Also in the sale was a 1991 Fender Stratocaster Eric Clapton signature model with gold-plated hardware which sold for over sixty thousand dollars, and a distinctive guitar strap designed exclusively for Clapton by the late fashion icon GIANNI VERSACE. Apparently the strap was never used on stage it may have been one item that Clapton was glad to see the back of. A 1959 Gibson explorer sold for one hundred and thirty thousand dollars while his distinctive acoustic Martin 000-28 which was his constant companion through the seventies, sold for a massive one hundred and seventy thousand dollars. The really heavy bidding however was reserved for the final lots with Clapton's 1954 Fender, used for his signature slide guitar playing, reaching over two hundred and ten thousand dollars. A new record was set with the sale of one of Clapton's favourite guitars 'Brownie' a 1956 Fender on which he played his famous introduction to the DEREK and THE DOMINOES song 'Layla'. A anonymous buyer paid nearly half a million dollars to buy up this piece of rock 'n' roll history. " I can't believe it " was Clapton's response, " I am totally overwhelmed. I had no idea the auction would do so well. " Clapton had said that he had wanted to sell the guitars to demonstrate his personal committed to the drugs and alcohol project in Antigua that he opened in 1998. Clapton himself has extensive knowledge of the famous twelve-step process for addicts as his own battle with drink and drugs led to him being hospitalised and spending long periods out of the public eye while battling his addictions. The sale of the guitars is no indication of a slowing down for the guitar legend. Clapton is currently rehearsing for a benefit concert in Madison Square Gardens, and he continues to write and record new material. His 1998 album 'Pilgrim' won two Grammy's and his work on film scores has also brought him critical acclaim. The double inductee into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame however is currently enjoying the attention and money that his auction has raised for the charity closest to his heart. " I... want to say thank you on behalf of all the patients who will get free treatment as a result of this sale ".

Various of Legoland park STORYLINE: Britain sweltered through its hottest day on record on Sunday, as the heat wave that has baked much of Europe for days sizzled relentlessly on. In the late afternoon sun, Britain surpassed 100 degrees Fahrenheit (37.7 Celsius) for the first time. The national weather service recorded 37.9 Celsius (100.22 Fahrenheit) at Heathrow Airport, near a parched and baking London. Later, an even higher reading - 38.1 Celsius (100.58) - was taken at Gravesend in southern England. For millions of Britons it was the end of a weekend to remember, as one in four people headed for the coast. Some will be hoping for a change in the weather. The crews starting in the Fastnet race at Cowes on the Isle of Wight will need more wind to complete one of the world's toughest yacht races. More leisurely pursuits have also been hard work. Celebrities at a charity cricket match in Surrey were trying to keep their cool. Northern parts of the country were cooler, and lightning storms created problems in some areas. A woman suffered a heart attack after being hit by lightning at a football match in Birmingham. Fourteen other people were hurt in the strike, which happened during heavy storms. The woman was revived at the scene and taken to hospital where she is now recovering Elsewhere in Birmingham, more than 60 firefighters were tackling a large fire at factory units struck by lightning in the storms. Ten fire engines were in attendance at the properties but the a West Midlands Fire Service spokesman said there were no injuries as it seemed the units were empty. The hot spell is great news for attractions like Legoland in Windsor. Families have flooded in as they try to take advantage of such a rare long stretch of good weather. However, the forecasters say storms are on their way.
