X Japan Leader Yoshiki Launches Celebrity Auction to Benefit Japan's Earthquake Recovery
To a music fan, there's nothing like having a unique piece of memorabilia from their favorite artist -- for example, an autographed guitar, or maybe the mandolin that Ministry used on three world tours, or Red Hot Chili Peppers singer Anthony Kiedis' MTV Europe Award. To a music fan and humanitarian, it's good to know these items will be for sale soon, and that proceeds benefit a great cause -- the ongoing earthquake relief for Japan.
The auction web site, yoshikifoundation.org , starts accepting bids Monday, May 16, and new items will be added every week. Items up for auction soon include a limited edition, signed print of the artwork for Marilyn Manson's Lest We Forget album. There are autographed guitars from Scott Ian (Anthrax) and Wes Borland (Limp Bizkit). Two tickets and a meet-and-greet to any 30 Seconds to Mars show on the band's 2011 tour will also be up for grabs, along with front row tickets to a taping of the TV show Chelsea Handler Live , an Amazing Spiderman comic book signed by Stan Lee, a T-shirt signed by Johnny Deep, and a Clint Eastwood DVD collection autographed by the Hollywood legend.
