AN AUCTION OF LEGENDARY GUITARS, EQUIPMENT, CLOTHING, MEMORABILIA AND MORE FROM THE CULT’S ICONIC GUITARIST
The photograph of The Cult’s guitarist Billy Duffy holding his Gretsch White Falcon aloft onstage is a true piece of Rock and Roll iconography. After a glittering career with Theatre of Hate, Southern Death Cult and The Cult, Billy has decided the time has come to open up his archives and offer The Cult’s fanbase an unparalleled chance to own some of the items which he has spent a lifetime accumulating. The collection charts a life in music, from early days collecting Mott The Hoople tickets and posters, his friendship with Steven Morrissey, a defining experience seeing The Sex Pistols at the infamous ‘I was there’ gig in Manchester, July 1976, through to The Cult’s huge successes of the 1980s and beyond.
The collection will be on display on 24th and 25th October 2019 at Omega Auctions saleroom in Newton-Le-Willows before the auction on Friday 25th October at 1pm.
