GNR, AC/DC, Sabbath Drummers To Celebrate Bonzo
Hollywood celebrates Zep's legendary drummer
Ultimate Classic Rock reports that the event takes place on what would have been John Bonham's 64th birthday at West Hollywood's House Of Blues.
A list of Bonham fans - among them Steven Adler, Simon Wright, Carmine Appice, Frankie Banali, Glen Sobel, Brian Tichy and Vinny Appice - will be backed by a band dubbed The Moby Dicks, with each celebrity drummer getting the chance to play a favorite Zeppelin song on a Bonham replica drum kit.
"There are no rules other than to have fun putting your own groove and character into your song choice,” says event host/drummer Brian Tichy, whose credits include albums by Foreigner and Whitesnake. "It’s such a unique night, seeing how all these great drummers approach the same drum set making it their own.”
