Rock Stars Auctioning Autographed Guitar For George Tutko Cancer Fund
March 23, 2014
Some of rock’s biggest names have joined together in an auction to benefit famed music producer George Tutko, who has recently been diagnosed with cancer. Up for auction is an autographed Scheckter Diamond Series guitar that can be bid on at ebay.com.
This is a once in a life time opportunity to own a piece of rock ‘n’ roll history, with all proceeds going to the George Tutko cancer fund to aid with his medical bills. Tutko is known for producing and engineering work with such artists as Ozzy Osbourne, KISS, Lita Ford, XYZ, Babylon A.D., The Quireboys, Vinnie Vincent Invasion, Cheap Trick and Rod Stewart.
The Scheckter Diamond Series guitar that is being auctioned is signed by Vince Neil (Motley Crue), Bruce Kulick (KISS/Grand Funk), Vivian Campbell (Def Leppard/Whitesnake/Dio), Rick Springfield, Doug Aldrich (Whitesnake), Richie Kotzen (Poison/Mr. Big/The Winery Dogs), Micky Dolenz (The Monkees), Uli Jon Roth (Scorpions), Albert Lee (legendary blues guitarist ), Kerry King (Slayer), Carlos Cavazo (Ratt/Quiet Riot), Great White (Mark Kendall, Audie Desbrow, Michael Lardie, Scotty Snyder, Terry Ilous), and Queensryche (Eddie Jackson, Scott Rockenfield, Michael Wilton, Parker Lundgren, Todd La Torre).
Tutko was diagnosed with an aggressive cancer late last year. His duaghter Ana recently posted that George “is putting such a great fight so far, and still manages to have a great, positive attitude. He is quick with a joke and sees the good side (in all side effects) and his medical staff, really enjoys having him around. Please keep your prayers coming, and thank you again and again.” Great White frontman Terry Ilous added, “As many of you might know, George is a very proud man, and has been determined to do this all on his own. But with limited insurance, and mounting bills from medicine, hospital visits and chemo — the life he had been working for all these years is being quickly ripped away from him. I know many of us have been touched by cancer in some way. Whether it was a friend, fellow musician, a family member, or a spouse, we can all understand the feeling of loss and helplessness he feels at this time.”
