RAT Rock News

A rash of rockers — including Ozzy Osbourne, Marky Ramone, Quiet Riot’s Rudy Sarzo, Billy Sheehan and others — have donated items to the Rock Against MS Foundation’s all-star charity auction, currently underway. 

Osbourne has donated two VIP tickets to OZZFest 2017 on November 4 in San Bernardino, Calif., while Sheehan is offering dinner and a private bass lesson in Los Angeles. Sarzo, who also played with Osbourne and Whitesnake, is also offering bass lessons and a signed instrument, and Ramone will create a “one of a kind” drum head for the high bidder.

Session drummer Mark Shulman, meanwhile, came in with two contributions — a drum lesson in Los Angeles and the opportunity to have him play on one of your tracks.

In addition to providing support and services to Multiple Sclerosis patients, Rock Against MS is working to build a facility in Los Angeles called The Rock House that will provide free services and treatments.
