Sheryl Crow has raided her music warehouse and is selling off several treasured items online.
The singer is clearing out her storage unit and fans will have the chance to bid on items including speakers and guitar amplifiers.
A post on the star's Facebook page reads, "We're clearing out the warehouse! Over the next few weeks, a bunch of gear that Sheryl used on various album recordings and live performances will be listed on eBay."
"Guitar amps, speaker cabinets, tape machines and more will be up for grabs - click the ebay link to view the items and yes, all this gear really was used by Sheryl and the musicians she's played with over the last 10-15 years!"

BEAUTIFUL DREAMER - FROM MARK TWAIN: WORDS AND MUSIC DOUBLE CD
.Thursday 17 November 2011
[BACKSTAGE] MARK TWAIN TRIBUTE CD -
Alison Krauss had graciously offered to perform on the CD also, but when scheduling conflicts got in the way the producer had to consider other options. Carl Jackson was in the studio with Sheryl Crow singing on Brad Paisley’s latest album, when Jackson said a light bulb went off.
“Brad and I had just finished working on “Life’s Railway To Heaven” with Sheryl, when he and I just looked at each other and thought why don’t we ask Sheryl if she’d be willing to sing the song originally slated for Alison. When she said sure, we went ahead and got her to sing “Beautiful Dreamer” right there on the spot. It only took us about a half hour to lay down the vocal tracks, and that song has recently been listed for a possible Grammy in the Pop Music Category.”

[LIVE REVIEW] SCOTT HAMILTON SHOW
A bunch of us from the Krew were so happy to see this year's version of Scott CARES. Terrific show. The five of us are among the millions of American women who would like to be Sheryl Crow just for an evening - we each have a hidden rocker inside us. We'd love to sing, to rock out. And she did! She and her band are terrific! Lots of fun but also moving when she talked about her cancer and sang a song she wrote in response to treatment called "Make It Go Away." Her friendship and connection with Scott were clear and very real - they are obviously friends and have fun with one another. During the dress rehearsal her language was 'salty' and she was very funny and kept assuring Scott that she'd clean it up for the evening show. And she did - not quite as funny though.
The big name guest star was Dorothy Hamill and Sheryl was even funny enough to have contributed of a photo of herself (she looked about 11 and it was up on the Jumbotron) with a not too flattering version of the Dorothy haircut just to prove what a fan she had been. Really cute! Dorothy skated a simple and elegant program and she skated beautifully - as our group noted, her back positions, her long edges are still there and at her age that's a real testimony. Good for her - she looked terrified up close but relaxed at the end of the program. During the dress she was nervous you could tell, but she did it. And she looked lovely.
Ilia skated fantastically as noted above, Buttle was very good (also contributed the good choreography for the group numbers which were more complex and faster that usual for these one-off shows - I appreciated that - another rehearsal and the cast wouldn't have been watching out for collisons, several of which almost happened), Alissa lovely (but so very thin), Katia was missing jumps which she had hit earlier in the day but she doesn't need the jumps - she had my favorite Crow song "The First Cut is the Deepest" and was lovely. Something happened to Joannie and she did not skate her solo - just the group numbers. The rest of the cast were Cousins, Meissner, Weiss, Sabovcek, Melissa & Dennis, Ryan Bradley and Caryn Kadavy who pulled off a more interesting skate that her usual. The spirit from everyone was wonderful (regardless of individual results) and they were all commited to what they were doing.
It was a great evening - as Drew Carey would say, Cleveland rocks!
Salty language, huh? ;-)

[NEWS] KCAL9'S SANDRA MITCHELL TALKS TO FELLOW BREAST CANCER SURVIVOR SHERYL CROW
BEVERLY HILLS (CBS) — KCAL9′s Sandra Mitchell concludes her three-part series on breast cancer — “1 in 8″, so named because one in eight American women will get breast cancer — with a special interview and profile of Grammy-winning singer/songwriter Sheryl Crow.
Five years after being diagnosed with breast cancer, Crow is in Beverly Hills for her regular mammogram.
“I’m five years out,” she tells Mitchell, “which is good. I think I’m done… knock on wood.”
Crow, reports Mitchell, might be done with the scans and the biopsies and the radiation treatments.
But she is not done spreading the message.
A simple but powerful one: early detection is key.
“I felt like ultimately after I was done with my treatment,” says Crow, “my experience was worth talking about…I definitely believe where there’s knowledge there’s power. Until there’s a cure for cancer, early detection and prevention are the best forms of cure that we have.”
Crow talked to Mitchell about her advocacy for breast cancer. Mitchell, of course, was diagnosed two months ago.
Says Crow, “I have a very loyal and wide-reaching fan base. I have a great opportunity to talk to people about cancer and prevention and self educating.”
Crow was successfully treated at the Pink Lotus Breast Center in Beverly Hills. The breast imaging center there is named after her.
Now, she is using her name and her fame to help others. Crow admits when she first got her own diagnosis it was a show-stopping moment. “It really puts you in your body,” she explains, “it makes you look at yourself differently.”
An avid runner, Crow realized after the diagnosis she had to be even more vigilant about her own health.
“From that moment on, I never looked at life the same way again. I knew it would never feel the same. For me, it became a lesson in putting myself first and [learning] how to say no and put myself at the top of the list of the people I took care of.”
These days, Crow is taking care of two young sons. She adopted her first son, Wyatt, soon after her diagnosis.
Mitchell tells Crow that it’s a testament to her resolve that she believed she would beat cancer by going through the adoptive process at the same time.
“I felt like not all my decisions were based in a quiet, centered and serene place,” she admits, candidly. “But I knew I wanted to be a mom. I felt like I was put on his planet to be a mom.”
And, of course, an entertainer. Mitchell asks if Crow’s bout with cancer found its way into her music.
“Your life informs your art and certainly that was such a huge part of my life, it definitely changed the way I looked at my life and lived my life and conducted myself.”
Ultimately, Crow reveals, “My prognosis is to go live a healthy life.”
