LED ZEPPELIN's JIMMY PAGE, QUEEN's BRIAN MAY Turn To Graffiti To Help Brazilian Kids

AFP reports that guitar legends Jimmy Page (LED ZEPELIN) and Brian May (QUEEN) are joining forces with leading street artists to lend support to Brazil's poorest children.

Twelve of Brazil and Britain's most revered graffiti artists have donated custom-painted Gibson guitars to Page's charity, "Action for Brazil's Children" (ABC), which will be auctioned off in London late Wednesday.

"It's a very important project for me," contributing artist Speto told AFP from his Sao Paulo home. "From a very young age, poor people learn you can have anything using violence, we need to pay attention to this and do something about it."
