Hello there!

Coming soon to eBay will be a charity auction that is going to benefit Allen Shellenberger. Allen is the drummer for the rock band LIT. (See details of Allen's condition below).

There will be several rock and roll items included in this auction.

One of the items that will be going up for auction, is a pair of Pro-Mark drumsticks, that was made specifically for Jason, for the O2 Arena show.

The imprint on these sticks has Jason's name, the famous Bonham circles and a special O2 insignia.

The date of the Zeppelin O2 show is printed on the sticks. This pair is signed by Jason and comes with a Limited Edition "Stick-n-Stack" plaque, made by a company called Jester House of Designs.


The plaque was co-designed by Pro-Mark and JHOD. The plaque uses a see through yellow backer (modeled after Jason's yellow Ludwig Vistalite kit. The metal header has Jason's name done in Led Zeppelin font and has the Bonham circles. The stick displayer is also signed by Jason. In addition the package will come with a pair of Pro-Mark Jason Bonham SD531W retail sticks (red imprint).

Keep checking eBay and I will try to let you know when the auctions begins.

Wow, what a great item Mark...something I would dearly love to own. If I had the resources, I would certainly be amongst the bidders. I will, however, keep an eye on the bidding out of interest and I hope that it makes lots of £££ for a very worthy cause.
