Phil Collen, vegan and iconic guitarist for rock band Def Leppard, recently announced his plans to put his prized instrument up for auction. The guitar used by Collen during the band’s Rock of Ages tour will be available for bidding on eBay from September 5 to 14, the last day of the tour. Collen, who lost his father to pancreatic cancer in 2004, is donating the funds from the auction to the Gerson Institute, a non-profit organization that promotes alternative, non-toxic, and holistic Gerson Therapy for patients suffering from cancer and other degenerative diseases. The therapy centers on the body’s ability to heal itself through an organic, plant-based diet with aid from raw juices, detoxification, and the implementation of natural supplements. The winner will be announced in November during Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month.
