Technically the NFL preseason has begun which mean the regular season is right around the corner, so rockers Jerry Cantrell and Mike Inez of Alice In Chains are back for eighth season of rock star fantasy football.
The team known as Alice In Chains & Friends includes Vinnie Paul, Duff McKagan, Scott Ian along with NFL Network’s Rich Eisen, actor Michael Rapaport, former NFL player Maurice Jones-Drew and fantay football columnist Michael Fabiano.
The cool part of the team is that there is an online auction component to it for fans to bid on items like guitar lessons from Cantrell, signed instruments from GNR, autographed sports memorabilia and more! Check out all the items up for auction RIGHT HERE.
All of the proceeds raised will go to two charities really important in the music community right now: MusiCares in honor of Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell and Music For Relief in honor of Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington, both who committed suicide just weeks apart from one another.
The auction is now open and runs through August 24.
