Brian Tichy, drummer for Whitesnake, musical foil to original Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience bassist Michael Devin and originator of the John Bonham tribute shows The Groove Remains The Same, has announced a fourth show in honour of John Bonham.
Called Bonzo’s Birthday Bash, Dave Lewis at Tight Bit Loose is today announcing a tribute concert to John Bonham on May 31st at the House of Blues in Hollywood. Like the Groove Remains the Same shows that preceded it, Bonzo’s Birthday Bash will feature a number of drummers doing their favourite Zeppelin tunes. “When I first thought of this,” Tichy told Lewis, “the idea seemed too simple and cool not to try; get a John Bonham replica drum set… up front, center stage, and have each drummer perform their favourite Zeppelin song with a house band.”
Guest drummers include Steven Adler from Guns ‘N Roses, Carmine Appice from Vanilla Fudge, Vinny Appice from Black Sabbath and of Course, Tichy himself among others.
The backing band features Tichy in lead guitar, Michael Devin on bass and Stephen Leblanc from Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience on keyboards.
Tickets are $25.00 advance, $30.00 at the door.
