Geddy Lee's shoesAs I'd mentioned in today's Friday Rush updates post, Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson's Grapes Under Pressure 3 charity eBay auction kicked off a couple of hours ago and is now underway. From Rush.com:

Starting at 6pm ET today, Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson will launch the most rock memorabilia on eBay as part of their Grapes Under Pressure 3 initiative in support of Grapes for Humanity, an organization that helps to raise funds to benefit humanitarian causes around the world with the assistance of the international wine community.

Included in this auction will be a wide range of rare, vintage & autographed Rush items! We've already unveiled Geddy's shoes worn on the R30 tour and the awesome 1980's era Rush road case.

These items and more start rolling out at 6pm ET until 10pm ET tonight, so check back in to see what other goodies get revealed and make your bid!

The auction closes in 10 days on October 13.
