The auction launches on October 9 (and ends on the evening of Sunday, October 21), and proceeds will benefit budding musicians by going to organisations “that help young generations of musicians ‘just PLAY’.”
“When I take my kids to their music lessons, I see these rooms full of children that are really pushing themselves to figure this out. I’m inspired by watching that process,” Dave says. “Even now, as a 49-year-old man, I’m still trying to figure it out. It’s not something that you ever truly master. You’re always chasing the next challenge, and you’re always trying to find a way to improve what you’ve learned.
“Seeing my own kids start to play music and take lessons brings me back to the time when I was their age, chipping away at it and learning from my mistakes,” he continues. “It’s a lifelong obsession, but at the end of the day – just like any kid – the reward is just to play.”
