Plainsong lyrics up for auction


Update 2: Rick, the winner of the auction, wanted to let everyone know that the lyrics have made it safely to him in Lafayette, LA. Thanks, and congratulations, Rick! Good to have them so close by. : )

Update: Sold for £1,920.


Robert has donated handwritten lyrics for 'Plainsong', along with an autographed 'Disintegration Deluxe' poster, to the upcoming 'The Art of Song' auction to benefit the Teenage Cancer Trust. The auction will be held on Dec. 15th, and you can get more info here, and see more of the items here.

  2. It's the lyrics on top, but only the words spoken by the other person in the song, none of the words that Robert is speaking. I love that!

  4. @Missdrea83: He means it's what the person is saying in the song. None of the "she saids" have words written above them.

  6. "framed and mounted together with the 'Disintergration' cover, signed 'R.S.' and twice further signed"

    I hate when people call this album "Disintergration". Really grating.

  7. Surely you mean "disinter-grating"
