There will also be a new Tool album in 2013! Just kidding, but seriously get in here for the all the charity warm-heartedness that Keenan is doing.
Just so we're clear, these aren't replicas or anything of Keenan's platinue records. These are seriously the ones the RIAA gave him for Tool's Undertow and A Perfect Circle's Mar De Noms. All the money received for both the records will go to the Animal Resource Center in Oklahoma, given it and many other things there are in pretty poor condition after al the recent weather catastrophes.
So far they're both at around $1,100 (this being the night of June 25), so it could've skyrocketed by the time you read this… y'know, more. The decription on the auction site, Beleaver.com, says:
Our first 2 items for auction are the personal RIAA sales plaques that once belonged to Maynard James Keenan of Tool, A Perfect Circle and Puscifer. After the May tornado’s destroyed countless homes and lives across Oklahoma, Maynard thru his trainer gave us his plaques for the specific purpose of helping in relief efforts. The following pictures below serve as genuine authentication that the actual auction items once belonging to Maynard James Keenan.
So what are you waiting for? There's only eighteen days left, and you've all very obviously have that kind of money! Get on it!
