A guitar strap once owned by Chris Cornell has been donated to help the MusicCares charity. The strap, along with personal items donated by other rockers, will be used to create a line of watches called the Rock LTD Collection. Dave Grohl, Iggy Pop, Elton John and more have also contributed items.
Sales of the line of timepieces will benefit the Recording Academy's MusiCares MAP Fund, which helps raise funding and resources for musicians in need of mental health services. The line is set to launch in time for holiday gifting and will include roughly 30 pieces all priced between $1,200 and $1,800.
Cornell's widow, Vicky Cornell, said in a statement: "Addiction is a disease, and we lose far too many loved ones to the illness each day. MusiCares is a crucial organization and the MusiCares MAP Fund one hundred percent supports the music community in its fight to protect those battling this affliction."
