Musicians Band Together For Cancer

Posted by on Tue, January 23rd, 2007 at 7:56 am

If you are going to be in Los Angeles on Jan 31st, you should be heading down to the Alex Theatre in Glendale. Yours truly is promoting a benefit concert, spearheaded by the great Butch Vig (drummer for Garbage, producer of the two best albums of the 90′s – Nevermind & Siamese Dream) and featuring an all-star line-up that includes Garbage, Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, Victoria Williams, Eric Burdon & The Animals and the Martini’s (Joey Santiago/David Lovering of the Pixies). And here’s a late breaking addition to the line-up (and you heard it here first) – Sheryl Crow.

All proceeds will benefit Wally “Llama” Ingram – former drummer for Jackson Browne, Sheryl Crow, & Tracy Chapman – who is suffering from throat and neck cancer.
