Alice in Chains + Friends Launch Fourth Annual Charity Auction
Alice in Chains and some of their musical friends are big on the charitable spirit during the football season, launching their own fantasy football league with each team playing for a particular cause. But just because the Super Bowl is over doesn’t mean the giving stops. For the fourth straight year, the league’s members have united to present an eBay charity auction.
Former Queensryche guitarist Chris DeGarmo has offered up his white ESP Custom Strat with a case and guitar picks and Black Label Society‘s Zakk Wylde has autographed his signature Epiphone Les Paul for auction. There’s also a Vinnie Paul autographed double-platinum plaque of Pantera‘s ‘Vulgar Display of Power’ that fans can bid upon.
As for Alice in Chains, the auction’s hosts provided an autographed G&L Tribute Series Rampage Jerry Cantrell signature electric guitar and Mike Inez autographed his Squier Affinity Series J bass. And for sports fans, the auction includes Brian Wilson autographed San Francisco Giants World Series and All-Star gear as well as a signed football featuring the signatures of Kurt Warner, Champ Bailey, Willie McGinest, Shaun O’Hara and Russell Wilson.
Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian won the Alice in Chains fantasy football league this past year, and all proceeds from the current auction will go to the guitarist’s chosen charity, The Painted Turtle. To check out all of the items and to bid, click here.
