GnR and Alice In Chains join Ebola charity auction

Guns N’ Roses and Alice In Chains are among bands contributing items for an Ebola charity auction.

They join Black Label Society, System Of A Down, Sammy Hagar and others in the CharityBuzz online campaign, running now.

More than 10,000 people have died since an outbreak of the virus in West Africa, and millions more are at risk of serious or fatal infection. The MusiCares organisation is helping fight the problem via Music For Relief.

Auction items include a signed photo of former Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan from 1986, autographed guitars from Alice In Chains, Slash and Tom Morello, a limited-edition SOAD poster and a signed, cased cymbal belonging to Hellyeah’s Vinnie Paul.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
