Tony Iommi and Robert Plant have both signed a guitar for an upcoming charity auction benefiting MusiCares, and they took a funny socially distanced photo together in an effort to help promote the auction.

Iommi’s Facebook shared the photo of the beautiful Gibson SG up for auction along with the caption, “Check out the guitar signed by Tony and Robert Plant, hopefully someone with deep pockets will want it!

What really makes the photo is a few things:

1. They’re both wearing masks and gloves, if you look closely.
2. They’re clearly (and a little awkwardly) six feet apart.
3. Plant’s wearing shorts and looking like the most normal man on Earth, but then you think to yourself, “He’s Robert Plant. He can do whatever he wants, and it’s still badass.”

If you do happen to have deep pockets and want to learn more about the auction, you can do so at If you don’t have deep pockets, have a brief laugh at this funny photo. We all could use one, really.
