“Gibson Guitars and Rolling Stone have been partners for over fifty years, so it seems natural to take our partnership to a new creative level for our fans during this challenging time,” says James ‘JC’ Curleigh, President and CEO of Gibson. “Along with our iconic artists, we are proud to support MusiCares through our Gibson Gives movement at such a pivotal time for musicians and the music industry.”
“About a month ago, we launched ‘In My Room’ as a way to foster greater connection between Rolling Stone fans and the artists they admire most,” says Gus Wenner, President and COO of Rolling Stone. “We found the perfect partner in Gibson, who similarly believes that music brings people comfort, and provides a welcome distraction and powerful message, particularly during stressful times in our society. We’re thrilled to partner with the Gibson team and three extraordinary artists to give back to the music community through MusiCares at a moment when it’s needed most.”
To support the music community in these uncertain times, starting Monday, April 20, Gibson Gives–the charitable arm of Gibson–and Rolling Stone will provide fans the chance to support the MusiCares® COVID-19 Relief Fund and take home an autographed artist guitar.
