Interest Japanese Rocker Yoshiki Auctions Piano for Charity

Yoshiki, the leader of the rock band X Japan, announced this week that he will auction off his custom-made Kawai piano and donate the proceeds to the relief efforts in Japan after the March 11 earthquake and tsunami. The "crystal" piano (actually plexiglass) is described in the press release as Yoshiki's "favorite," which he used in X Japan's concerts at the Tokyo Dome.
Yoshiki will also collect donations through his own nonprofit charity organization, the Yoshiki Foundation. The foundation is typically focused on helping children with bone marrow disease; however, its official website states that information on how to donate in support of the victims of the earthquake and tsunami will be announced "soon."
