A guitar previously owned by Ralph Santolla (OBITUARY, DEICIDE, DEATH, ICED EARTH) is currently being auctioned via eBay. All proceeds will go to the family of DECAPITATED singer Adrian "Covan" Kowanek, who was seriously injured on November 2, 2007 in a Russian road collision.
Commented Ralph: "As most people know, the drummer for DECAPITATED, Vitek, lost his life in an auto accident while on tour in November 2007. His singer, Covan, was seriously injured. He has a very long road to recovery ahead of him, and he and his family face enormous medical costs. At the end of the Winterfest tour [featuring DEICIDE, VADER, SAMAEL and DEVIAN], we gave Vitek's brother, Wacek (Waclaw 'Vogg' Kieltyka; guitarist for VADER), a Jackson Randy Rhoads 24-fret guitar that was signed by the entire tour. This guitar will be auctioned to raise money for Covan and his family. This guitar was used on DEICIDE's 'Till Death Do Us Part' album, OBITUARY's 'Left to Die' EP and many, many tours and festivals. It's also an amazing instrument. This guitar has seen more of the world than you! Please do whatever you can to support this cause!"
