While the media is often focused on the (falsely) negative impacts that rock and metal music cause in society, they are often keen to ignore the massive benefits that these genres can provide. And in a gesture of just how true this statement rings, Alice In Chains just wrapped up their 4th annual Alice In Chains & Friends Fantasy Football League charity. The league this year was comprised of AIC members Jerry Cantrell and Mike Inez, former Pantera drummer Vinnie Paul, Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian, ex-closer of the World Champion San Francisco Giants Brian Wilson, NFL contributor Elliot Harrison, Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready, Black Label Society guitarist/vocalist Zakk Wylde, former Queensrÿche songwriter/guitarist Chris DeGarmo and Gun N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan.
Each year, the participants donate an item that will be auctioned off via eBay. At the end of the auctions, all proceeds are donated to the league winner’s charity of choice.
This year, Anthrax’s Scott Ian won the league and chose The Painted Turtle as the charity which will be the recipient of the proceeds. The Painted Turtle is a group of camps that host children with serious medical issues, all free of charge. As a result, all proceeds to the charity go directly towards helping the families and children directly.
