Tim Mosenfelder/Getty ImagesClutch frontman Neil Fallon has reached out to his rock star pals and gotten them to donate some impressive items for a charity auction that’s now live.
The proceeds go to the Innocent Lives Foundation, for which Fallon’s on the board and which works to protect kids from online predators. Among the items being offered is a guitar that My Chemical Romance guitarist Frank Iero smashed onstage, and then saved in a vault for years. When we last checked Wednesday afternoon, bidding was up to just over $1,500.
Another unique instrument is an autographed guitar from Slipknot‘s Corey Taylor, which he used to write his yet-to-be-released solo album. Bidding on that was over $2,500 as of Wednesday afternoon.
Other cool items include an autographed No Doubt guitar, an autographed Zakk Wylde guitar and two signed Black Label Society posters, two Foo Fighters autographed posters, and a limited-edition black-and-white photograph of Chris Cornell by photographer Andrew Stuart. The photo, approved by Cornell’s estate, is #21 of only 25 in the world.
Of course, Fallon has made a donation as well: the guitar he used to write the song “Gone Cold.” The whole band autographed it, and Fallon wrote the lyrics on the back of the instrument. Bidding on that had already exceeded $5,000.
The auction ends December 7th at 11:59 pm EST, so start bidding now.
