Members of Motorhead, Rob Zombie’s Band, Deep Purple + More to Play 2013 Rock Against MS Concert
An all-star lineup has been constructed for the 2013 Rock Against MS charity concert. Slated for March 27 at Hollywood’s Whisky A Go-Go, the benefit will feature past and present members of Guns N’ Roses, Motorhead, Megadeth, Ramones, Rob Zombie and many more.
Multiple Sclerosis is a serious autoimmune disease, and a mass of musicians are coming together to help longtime music publicist Nancy Sayle, who was struck with Primary Progressive MS in 2009. This type of MS is a severe form of the disease, with only 10 percent of the afflicted having been diagnosed with this variation. In addition, Sayle also came down with a pituitary brain tumor in 2012. After learning of her condition, Steve Stevens (guitarist for Billy Idol), along with his wife Josie, came up with the idea to stage a benefit concert.
Musicians set to perform at the benefit concert include Lemmy Kilmister (Motorhead), John 5 (Rob Zombie / ex-Marilyn Manson), Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple), Billy Morrison (Billy Idol), Steven Adler (ex-Guns N’ Roses / Adler), Kenny Aronoff (Chickenfoot), Ginger Fish (Rob Zombie / ex-Marilyn Manson), Wayne Static (Static-X), Tommy Victor (Prong), Phil Buckman (Filter), Jack Russell (Great White), Jeff Pilson (Foreigner), Jeff Young (ex-Megadeth) and Marky Ramone (Ramones).
There will also be an auction featuring a guitar lesson with Steve Stevens and signed guitars from Rick Springfield and Paul Gilbert, among other items up for bid.
Tickets for the 2013 Rock Against MS concert are being offered anywhere between $35 – $150. To purchase tickets for the charity gig, head over to Ticketfly.
