No Doubt Auction for Injured Deftones Bassist

This is just another reason why we love No Doubt so much-they are always so charitable and generous.The band signed a Hamer guitar and a hoodie for a Charity Buzz auction to benefit The Chi Ling Cheng Special Needs Trust;Chi Ling Cheng is the bassist of The Deftones who sadly was involved in a horrific car accident back in 2008 which has left him in a semi-conscious state. In his journey to recovery, the Cheng family has accumulated an overwhelming amount of medical bills that insurance does not entirely cover,and so the trust was established on their behalf.The current bid for the auction is $1,050,and the auction ends at 4 PM EST tomorrow,January 11.Good luck to anyone who is able to place a bid for such a worthy cause,and thanks again to ND for always being so charitable.

This auction lot includes one (1) guitar and one (1) hoodie, each signed by all of the band members from No Doubt.

The band’s diamond-certified album Tragic Kingdom helped to launch the ska revival of the 1990s, and “Don’t Speak”, the third single from the album, set a record when it spent sixteen weeks at the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay chart.

Following this the group released its next album, Return of Saturn, four years later. While a minor success commercially it could not match the success of their previous album and underperformed both commercially and critically. Fifteen months later, the band reappeared with Rock Steady, which incorporated reggae and dancehall music into their work. The album was primarily recorded in Jamaica and featured collaborations with Jamaican artists Bounty Killer, Sly and Robbie, and Lady Saw. The album produced two Grammy-winning singles, “Hey Baby” and “Underneath It All”.

No Doubt released the compilation The Singles 1992–2003 and box set Boom Box in 2003, both of which contained a cover version of the Talk Talk synthpop song “It’s My Life”. Frontwoman Gwen Stefani launched her solo career the next year with several collaborations, including bandmate Tony Kanal as well as Pharrell Williams of The Neptunes, while guitarist Tom Dumont began his side project, Invincible Overlord. During its career, the band has won two Grammy Awards and sold 28 million records worldwide to date. The band embarked on a US national tour throughout the summer of 2009. No Doubt was ranked 89th best artist of the decade by Billboard.
