Rock legends are lining up to celebrate The Clash icon Joe Strummer's life at a celebrity auction.

A guitar signed by The Who rockers Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend, drummer Kenny Jones and The Cure's Robert Smith is on offer to bidders as part of the Joe Strummer Foundation for New Music's latest fund-raising drive.

A suit worn by The Clash star Topper Headron is also among the items up for purchase at London's Elgin pub on April 9.

The charity - named in Strummer's honour after his heart attack death in December 2002 - provides rehearsal space and studio time to aspiring artists who otherwise wouldn't have the financial means to record their music.
