Dave Grohl Auctioning Signed Instruments For Charity

Dave Grohl, the founder and frontman of the Foo Fighters, plans to auction of his instruments he used to make his new solo project, Play, via Reverb.

Starting Tuesday, October 9, fans can bid on pieces of gear that Grohl used to make Play, donated by DW Drums, Fender, Gibson, Gretsch, Ludwig, Masters Of Maple, and Zildjian, and signed by the musician himself.

Proceeds from the auction will benefit “organizations that help young generations of new musicians ‘just play.'”

“Seeing my own kids start to play music and take lessons brings me back to the time when I was their age, chipping away at it and learning from my mistakes. Even now, as a 49-year-old man, I’m still trying to figure it out,” Grohl stated.

“It’s not something that you ever truly master. You’re always chasing the next challenge, and you’re always trying to find a way to improve what you’ve learned. It’s a lifelong obsession, but at the end of the day—just like any kid—the reward is just to play.”

Grohl released Play in August, a two-part documentary that culminates with a performance a new solo 23-minute song on seven different instruments.

The auction starts October 9 and runs through October 21.
