LOS ANGELES, CA - SEPTEMBER 24: Ozzy Osbourne of Black Sabbath performs at Ozzfest 2016 at San Manuel Amphitheater on September 24, 2016 in Los Angeles, California; NEW YORK, NY - APRIL 22: Ramones drummer Marky Ramone attends SHOT! The Psycho-Spiritual Mantra of Rock - After Party - 2016 Tribeca Film Festival on April 22, 2016 in New York City.

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.
