Today at 3 p.m. ET, Warren Haynes will go live for Rolling Stone’s ‘In My Room’ series on the publication’s Instagram account. In addition, Haynes has teamed up with Gibson Gives (the charitable art of Gibson) to auction an autographed Les Paul Standard 50s guitar.
All proceeds from the auction will go towards Equal Justice Initiative. “I’m honored to partner with Rolling Stone and Gibson for this performance and auction and wanted to do something a little different- seeing as how we all have a little more time on our hands- so instead of just doing ‘solo acoustic’ songs I thought I would accompany myself as well as incorporate a couple of friends. I chose these songs based on what we’re all going through together” said Haynes via press release. “I chose the Equal Justice Initiative because all citizens deserve equal justice and the fact that there even needs to be an organization dedicated to fighting for this illustrates how important the work they do is.”
