Haven't got confirmation yet, but it looks like both GLENN and CHAD will be appearing at a benefit concert in Phoenix, Arizona on Saturday, September 10th, 2005.
All-Star Benefit Concert For Lissa Wales
On Saturday, September 10th, members of the music industry will lend their time and talent at a benefit concert for Lissa Wales, an outstanding and devoted freelance photographer who lives in Arizona. For the past two years, Lissa has battled acute myelogenous leukemia and most recently went through a bone marrow transplant.
The show, which will take place at Celebrity Theatre in Phoenix, will find some of the finest drummers in the industry coming together for one very special night of entertainment to support Lissa as she continues her battle with Leukemia.
With Troy Luccketta from Tesla taking the reigns and calling drummer friends of Lissa’s, the line-up has become a diverse musical event. An eclectic group of drummers have committed to performing include Denny Seiwell (Paul McCartney), CHAD SMITH (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Danny Seraphine (original drummer for Chicago), Billy Ashbaugh (NSYNC), Carmine Appice (Vanilla Fudge/Rod Stewart), Jimmy Degrasso (ex-Megadeth), Dom Moio (Cinco De Moio) Ken Mary (House of Lords) and Dom Famularo (World Educator).
Performing with and alongside these talented drummers include Jerry Riopelle, Ronnie Montrose with David Elefson and Jimmy DeGrasso, an acoustic performance with Jeff Keith and Frank Hannon from Tesla, Cinco de Moio featuring Dom Moio, Brandon Reid Allen (nominated for Breakout Artist of the year at the 2005 Christian Music Awards), GLENN HUGHES (Deep Purple) and Savile Row featuring Marc Bonilla and Troy Luccketta. Supporting several on the drummers will be the “House Band” featuring Mic Mahan (Pat Benatar) on bass, Dave Henzerling on guitar, Marc Bonilla on guitar and Ed Roth (Rob Halford) on keyboards.
