According to Springsteen’s official website, the 20-time Grammy winner started the auction with an autographed guitar that reached up to $70,000, signed by artists such as Katy Perry, Emmylou Harris, Tim McGraw, and others. An hour long guitar lesson by Springsteen himself was also included in the auction, in addition to a ride on the side of his Harley, tickets and backstage passes to his concerts, and even a home cooked lasagna meal by his mother.

 

This year’s MusiCares Person of the Year Tribute was the foundation’s 23rd. The MusiCares foundation has a mission of assisting people in the music industry by providing a range of financial, medical, and personal services with the intent to preserve and improve the “health and welfare of the music community,” according to their official website.
