Get a Truly Unique Rock & Roll Gift for a Loved One (or Yourself!)

It's the time of year when we're bombarded with ads for stores promising that they have gift items that are unique, one-of-a-kind, etc. But here's a gift opportunity that will truly be memorable for the music lovers on your shopping list: a signed piece of rock memorabilia from the Rock & Roll Charity Auction.

The Auction benefits Rock For Kids, a charity that directs much-needed funds to underprivileged children. This year's Auction, the 20th annual, will take place in Chicago on December 5th, but you don't have to be there to take part and bid on items... the Auction has a proxy bidding procedure, just like on eBay.

(If you will be in Chicago for the Auction, see the details below for time and place and how to buy tickets.)

So what kind of unique items are in the Auction? Head for the official Rock & Roll Charity Auction Web site to view the items.

There are autographed items from everyone from Janis Joplin and Carlos Santana to B.B. King, Dolly Parton, Bruce Springsteen, and almost 200 more. There are straightforward rock memorabilia items (an Allman Brothers poster signed by the band) to the more offbeat (a Chicago Blackhawks hockey jersey signed by the members of The Cure).

Other artists with items up for auction include Andrew Bird, Aretha Franklin, The Breeders, Brian Wilson, Carole King, Dave Brubek, and even some non-musical folk like Jerry Seinfeld.

Check out the items on sale and make a bid on a truly unique item for that perfect holiday gift, or a treat for yourself!
