Signed Guitars by Corey Taylor + Sammy Hagar Hit Charity Auction
Rock to Recovery, the non-profit organization which aims to use the power of songwriting, performing and recording music as a mechanism for healing, has set up an online auction featuring signed guitars by Slipknot icon Corey Taylor and the legendary Sammy Hagar, as well as an autographed copy of Nikki Sixx's The Heroin Diaries.
The proceeds from each item sold will benefit the foundation and aid in bringing music to people currently in treatment for addiction, issues pertaining to mental health, trauma and traumatic brain injuries, as well as wounded warriors, at-risk youth, foster children and more.
Also up for auction are signed guitars by Lamb of God's Mark Morton, a signed guitar and drum head from Papa Roach, a custom 'Duel Diagnosis' guitar signed by Jane's Addiction's Dave Navarro and artist PADHiA and original artwork by RISK.
Wesley Geer, former Hed P.E. guitarist and live axeman for Korn (2010-2013) and Rock to Recovery founder, commented, "Music is a language we all know from a young age. Rock to Recovery gives people the outlet to channel the music in their soul, many for the first time, and we help bring it out of them. I spent time in rehab and I know what it's like. I wanted a way to give back, and help lift the spirits of those in early recovery. 'Music is the Medicine!’ It works miracles."
