Hollywood, CA (June 16, 2010) -- Besides the love of music, rockstars have a soft spot for our four legged furry friends. With the help from so many artists and actors with their charitable donations of instruments and signed memorabilia, Fur & Feather Animal Sanctuary comes closer to breaking ground in the next year for the first fully solar and wind powered, no-kill animal sanctuary. The sanctuary will also provide the community with a low-cost animal clinic, education and cultural center.

Currently on the eBay auction block is a Yamaha bass signed by Bass-master Billy Sheehan, guitar virtuoso John 5’s famous 666 strap by Red Monkey from five tours with Rob Zombie signed and dated, Ozzy’s autobiography “I AM OZZY” signed by Ozzy, legendary ax-slinger Steve Vai’s custom made Ultra Zone tour silver outfit by famed rockstar couturier Terri King, Halloween 2 movie prop w/ signed Michael Myers photo from Tyler Mane, and a Schecter Diamond Series Delux guitar signed by all the mainstage bands from OZZfest 2006 including Ozzy, Zakk Wylde, BLS, Hatebreed, Disturbed, Lacuna Coil, System of a Down and more!

Adding in the next week to the auction will be two signed Ibanez guitars one from Paul Gilbert and one from Steve Vai, an Ernie Ball bass signed by Blasko from Ozzy Osbourne’s band, and a Schecter Diamond Series guitar signed by horror Icons Tyler Mane (Michael Myers/Halloween 1&2) and Derek Mears (Jason Voorhees/Friday the 13th).

Making art is the opposite of work, and, conversely, we know what happens to Jack when there’s all work and no play. But what happens when the dimensions of work and play fuse together like time and space? What happens to Jack then? Well, behind such an instance of metaphysical reaction, undoubtedly, would be King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard.
