Signed Guitars & Other Memorabilia From Slipknot, Chris Cornell & More Will Be Auctioned Off To Help Stop Online PredatorsWritten by Emmy Mack on November 26, 2019
A haul of rock & metal memorabilia will be auctioned off to raise money for a not for profit organisation called the Innocent Lives Foundation, which aims to protect kids by helping to catch paedophiles and online creeps.
You’ll have a chance to bid on a whole bunch of choice collector’s items including signed guitars from Slipknot, My Chemical Romance, No Doubt, Zakk Wylde, Thursday, and Clutch, plus signed posters from Foo Fighters and Black Label Society, as well as a limited edition (#21 of 25) black and white photo print of Chris Cornell, courtesy of Andrew Stuart and approved by the Cornell estate.
It’s all thanks to Clutch singer & rhythm guitarist Neil Fallon, who also happens to sit on the board of The Innocence Foundation.
When asked why he wanted to organise an auction for the ILF, Fallon stated: “No one wants to hear, let alone talk, about the topic of child abuse. We can choose to look away, but the victims don’t have that option. I realised that if I am in a position to help, how could I not? Putting together this auction is an easy thing to do for kids that need our help so desperately.”
Bidding on the items has already started and concludes on December 8th at 3:59pm AEDT.
