Another highlight is an actual stainless steel kitchen sink signed by the members of Tool: Maynard James Keenan, Danny Carey, Adam Jones, and Justin Chancellor. According to Warren Christensen, manager of the band and supporter of the Dio Cancer Fund, Tool members are generally reluctant to sign items to donate. However, when presented with “the kitchen sink” and a good cause, they couldn’t resist.
