Greg Godovitz' BC Flood Victims Auction Pulls In Musical Friends

Greg Godovitz always has something up his sleeve. His latest project is to get as many musical signatures on a Fender guitar that is going up for auction to help victims of the BC floods. The list so far is impressive. He wants more, and he wants pledges. We have the details.

Greg Godovitz' BC Flood Victims Auction Pulls In Musical Friends

By David Farrell

We’ve all watched the TV images of the devastation that has hit hard in parts of B.C. and Newfoundland, but when Greg Godovitz (aka Mr. Goddo) viewed the news reports earlier this week, he decided he needed to offer a helping hand. “I went into the basement and pulled out a Fender F36 acoustic guitar that I have in my collection and decided I was going to auction it off as a way to do something for all those poor people who have lost so much.”


He contacted GlobalMedic, which has set up a charitable fundraising campaign for the BC flood victims and then put the call out to friends and peers in music to sign the Fender which is going up for auction on December 11.

Musical associates have been quick to respond. So far, he has signatures on the guitar’s body from Ronnie Hawkins, Gordon Lightfoot, Murray McLauchlan, David Clayton Thomas, (Larry) Gowan, (Gil Moore, Mike Levine and Rik Emmett) Triumph, Kris Kristofferson, Alex Lifeson, Eddie Kramer, (members of) Blue Rodeo, Geddy Lee, and Kim Mitchell.

If you have a sharp eye, you will notice a complete absence of females on the list. This concerns him but Liona Boyd is in Florida, Carole Pope in New York and several others are either out of town or out of the country. He wants to hear from you, so if you want to contribute a signature or make a pledge, write Greg at rocktalk@shaw.ca or personal message him on Facebook.
