The Heavy Metal Truants is the world’s first heavy metal charity bike ride. Now in its third year, the annual event supports three important charities: ChildLine, Teenage Cancer Trust and Nordoff Robins Music Therapy.
The Heavy Metal Truants have teamed up with CharityStars, Britain’s leading online charity marketplace, to auction 23 one-off pieces of music history.
Having had a look at the auction site, at the time of writing there are some cracking bits of memorabilia on sale at very reasonable prices.
The first is a Monitor Audio speaker system, signed by no less than 25 rock stars at the 2013 Classic Rock Roll of Honour. Signatories include Rush, Black Sabbath, Status Quo and Thin Lizzy.
There are also a couple of Slipknot items including nine original, hand-drawn portraits of the current Slipknot line-up, completed by world-famous comic artist Charlie Adlard who is best-known for his work on the Walking Dead comic book.
To commemorate the 35th anniversary of Birmingham band Judas Priest, a brand new Artist Series Guitar (ASG) signed by the current members is up for grabs. This is a true limited edition, being one of only 30 produced. It features solid mahogany body, rosewood fingerboard, trapezoid inlays as well as custom ASG Arsenal pickups and the chrome ASG headstock emblem.
These auctions are live and close on Tuesday September 01.
