Led Zeppelin rockers Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham have signed a drum skin from their final 2007 gig for a special charity auction.
Proceeds from the auction will go to the Racehorse Sanctuary, of which Deborah Bonham – sister of original Led Zep drummer John Bonham – is a trustee. According to the charity: “There are between 4000 and 5000 horses leaving the racing industry annually, the majority of which are quite straight forward and make the transition to becoming a riding horse with ease, however, it is the horses that find it difficult that need the facility that the Racehorse Sanctuary offers. So many of these super horses could have a happy and in most cases productive lives ahead of them if they were given the time and expertise needed.”
The item will be going under the hammer as part of a charity concert featuring Deborah Bonham and special guests tomorrow night, November 12, in Surrey, UK. Also up for auction are Paul Rogers signed CDs and a drum skin signed at the John Bonham LA Memorial by drummers from AC/DC, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Guns ‘n’ Roses and more.
