phil drumset in charity auction

Some lucky Phillover is going to be able to own one of Phil's drum kits.

Radiohead memorabilia goes under the hammer

A drum kit belonging to Radiohead drummer Phil Selway will be among the lots in the Pop Culture sale at Christie’s, in London, on July 1.

The drum kit has been autographed by Abingdon-born Mr Selway and other members of the Oxford band, who met while pupils at Abingdon School, and is expected to fetch £4,000.

The Premier rosewood and cherry red lacquer kit was used to record the 1997 album OK Computer, which went triple platinum in the UK, and double platinum in the US.

Mr Selway, 42, was last year voted the 26th-best drummer of all time by online music magazine Gigwise.

He gave away the drums as a prize in a charity draw seven years ago in aid of the Samaritans charity, which he has worked for as a helpline volunteer.
