I was absolutely floored at Toronto Night 2 when Ed talked about the Tyler McGill Benefit that I will be attending at my Local, The Queen Victoria Pub in Scarborough, tomorrow. Imagine you just had lunch there that day of the show and Ed talks about your local?!?! I was like did that just happen?

So wondering if anyone has a link to a video where he talked about it so I can show people tomorrow. It's going to be a great day and I think I will need to bid ($1 BILLION DOLLARS! ;-) on this beauty donated by the World's Best and Most Kind Band:

Pearl Jam Donation

    If anyone is there tomorrow say hi, my name is Brock, I'll be wearing my Pearl Jam Toronto N1 red shirt and black PJ hat. Let's raise a Guinness to PJ and donate in Tyler's memory.

    What kind of band does this? Seriously.

    And on that note, I'm not sure if I missed this earlier but...I mean, come on:

    Once you've read this, read the Macleans original: it's one of the best pieces of journalism I've ever read. And it's even got some Pearl Jam content.

    Just an incredible story and so amazing the band took the time to meet them and share some special time.

    Amazing guitar fr auction and that post from Sean Barrette is heartbreaking but also a great story to read.

    Hope the guitar pulls a ton at the auction later!

    Fundraiser is today I am going and going to put in a bid but I think it will go for beyond my means (like Jerseys on eBay expensive ;-)

    These typically fetch ~US$15,000 (give or take) when the band auctions them off for charity. Hopefully this one doesn't go cheap as the goal is to raise as much as possible.

    All for a good cause, to buy guitars for kids who can't afford them. Now I can't afford another guitar... ;-)
