The Red Hot Chili Peppers, No Doubt, the Offspring and many more will contribute hand-signed merchandise and other items to a charity auction that will benefit Lit drummer Allen Shellenberger. Shellenberger was recently diagnosed with a grade 4 malignant brain tumor. RHCP will provide a copy of their Stadium Arcadium signed by all four members of the band, while No Doubt will auction off an autographed amp. Among the other cool items are a guitar lesson with virtuoso Steve Vai, a Knocked Up poster autographed by Judd Apatow, a painting by actor Pierce Brosnan and a dinner with Lit. The auction is going on now on eBay. Shellenberger, who is currently undergoing radiation and chemotherapy, is optimistic and ready for the fight ahead.
