Steven Tyler Auctioning Items To Benefit MusiCares Foundation
July 26, 2011
Aerosmith frontman and American Idol judge Steven Tyler is auctioning off an autographed ‘Draw The Line’ vintage vinyl and a signed Aerosmith Guitar Hero guitar to support the MusiCares Foundation.
Steven Tyler Signed & Framed Vintage Aerosmith Vinyl: Be your own “Demon of Screamin” with this Draw the Line vintage vinyl signed by Steven Tyler. Draw the Line is the fifth album by Aerosmith and was recorded in an abandoned convent near New York City, rented out for that purpose. At the time of the album’s release the band was considered big enough that their name didn’t need to appear on the front of the album artwork. The animated portrait of the band was drawn by renowned celebrity caricaturist Al Hirschfeld.
Steven Tyler signed this vinyl at the 7th Annual MusiCares MAP Fund Benefit Concert Honoring Dave Gahan and Kevin Lyman on May 6, 2011 at Club Nokia in Los Angeles. Steven presented the Stevie Ray Vaughan award to Dave Gahan and spoke about his own struggles with addiction. The vinyl is framed in a dark chocolate rustic wood frame with white matting. Steven signed on the upper left side above his cartoon image. The back of the frame can be opened to remove the vinyl just in case you want to try and hit some of Steven’s high notes!
