In 1973 Faces sang 'I Wish it Would Rain' and so will you if you win this brilliant one off umbrella featuring an original painting of Rod by artist Melanie D, at this years TARTAN party in Cambridge on Saturday 8th October

Melanie is a young rock musician and artist based in Sofia, Bulgaria. Most of her paintings are inspired by music and her gallery includes many portraits of her favorite musicians including this fantastic one she painted of Rod from his great American Songbook album 'Thanks for the memory'

Melanie was happy to donate her artwork to help raise money for this years charity The Teenage Cancer Trust.
