Slipknot and Stone Sour vocalist Corey Taylor raised over $150,000 with his recent guitar auction. The money was a combination of Taylor's auction raising over $75,000 and eBay matching his total. All money made from the auction will be donated to Direct Relief in support of their COVID-19 response efforts.

The guitars and basses auctioned off included gold metallic Gibson Memphis Dave Grohl DG-335 (#237 of only 400), a Gold Top Gibson Classic Les Paul, a tan Fender Acoustic, a pearl blue Gibson Dave Grohl Signature #87 out of only 200, and a black SDGR Bass.

Direct Relief is a humanitarian aid organization, active in all 50 states and more than 80 countries, with a mission to improve the health and lives of people affected by poverty or emergencies – without regard to politics, religion, or ability to pay. Direct Relief's assistance programs are tailored to the particular circumstances and needs of the world's most vulnerable and at-risk populations.

This tradition of direct and targeted assistance, provided in a manner that respects and involves the people served, has been a hallmark of the organization since its founding in 1948 by refugee war immigrants to the U.S.
