Strange 80's 2

John 5 will be joining a host of stars, to appear at the second annual Strange 80’s Benefit show, on Friday, October 12 at the Fonda Theatre in LA, CA.

About the event:

“Strange 80s is an annual benefit show at the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles which features a rotating cast of the biggest marquis talent and emerging artists in rock, performing songs from the world’s favorite decade, the 80s. Strange incorporates musicians, comedians and cast members from the latest binge-worthy series in pop-culture. It’s the only platform to see unfathomable supergroups comprised of members from stalwart bands. Slipknot, Fall Out Boy, The Regrettes and Nsynch, meshed into one playing a song the whole world can sing along to, or an obscure track that takes you back to that glorious time. Or for those who don’t know what life was like without a cell phone, let the song and the vibe explain it.”

100% of the proceeds raised each year go to a different cause. This years charity beneficiary is 320 Changes Direction, (co-founded by Chester Bennington’s widow Talinda – #ChangeMentalHealth) which helps those who suffer from mental health, depression and addiction issues. This years stars include, Scott Ian, Corey Taylor, Dave Kushner, Adrian Young and Gary Holt, among others.

FOR AUCTION: Personal John 5 guitar signed by John 5, Rob Zombie & friends for the Ruben Velasco Legacy Fund

John 5 guitar auction Ruben

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

As many of you will recall, a few months ago, John 5’s good friend Ruben Valesco – also his guitar tech on many tours – passed away after a valiant fight against stage 4 cancer. Since then the Ruben Velasco Legacy Fund has been set up in honor of him and his love of protecting the health and safety of animals.

John 5 has given away this very personal gift to the charity to be auctioned – a gold Squier Telecaster named “Son of Goldie” (in reference to his main gold Telecaster people see him with) and has got a bunch of friends to sign it too.

This was his personal instrument for many years, played on stage while on tour with Rob Zombie. Several marks on the guitar show the instrument’s well-worn patina and recall his frenetic head-banging style. Accompanying its authentic marks are autographs from his fellow musicians: Rob Zombie, Billy Idol, Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses), Steve Jones (Sex Pistols), and John 5 himself.

This rare piece of music memorabilia is a vision in gold, and comes with a matching headstock, hardware, and a mirrored pickguard. Sales from this guitar will benefit The Fur and Feather Animal Sanctuary and Ruben’s Legacy.

You can bid for it here: ifonly.com/music/squier-telecaster-guitar-signedjohn-5-rob-zombie

Auctions ends end of September.
