JANE'S ADDICTION, Ex-GUNS N' ROSES Members To Perform At Benefit Concert For RHONDA'S KISS

September 24, 2015 9 Comments

Music luminaries will gather for a benefit concert and live auction for Rhonda's Kiss — a foundation that raises money for cancer patients that can't afford treatment — on Tuesday, November 3 at The El Rey Theatre (5515 Wilshire Blvd) in Los Angeles (red carpet: 6:00-7:00 p.m., show starts: 8:00 p.m.). Renowned comedian and actor Bill Burr ("Breaking Bad", "Walk Of Shame") will emcee the one-night-only event. THE HELLCAT SAINTS — a band featuring a revolving group of musicians created by Dave Kushner (VELVET REVOLVER) — will perform, and will include appearances by Dave Navarro (JANE'S ADDICTION), Juliette Lewis (JULIETTE & THE LICKS), Duff McKagan (VELVET REVOLVER, GUNS N' ROSES), Gilby Clarke (GUNS N' ROSES), Mark McGrath (SUGAR RAY, host of "Extra!") and Josh Freese (NINE INCH NAILS, DEVO, A PERFECT CIRCLE), with more special guests, including a surprise A-list guest singer, to be announced next month. The show will also feature a VIP Gift Lounge from Double Platinum (Grammy Foundation, VH1 Save The Music, Sundance Film Festival), a talent meet-and-greet and a live auction. The proceeds from the concert and live auction will benefit Rhonda's Kiss. All VIP packages/donations for the night are on sale now.

Rhonda's Kiss is supported by the Marc A. And Rhonda L. Stefanski Foundation, a recognized 501©(3).

In 2014, Rhonda Stefanski was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. While she lost her battle, one of the greatest gifts she left was to create Rhonda's Kiss, an event to raise money to help those who receive a cancer diagnosis, but may be unable to make ends meet for treatment and support.

Rhonda's Kiss provides financial support to decrease late-stage cancer diagnosis in urban communities and for patients in financial need by using a three-pronged approach that integrates outreach (education, awareness and screening), navigation (medical and home) and patient services (treatment and financial assistance and emotional support). All funds will benefit City Of Hope, a leading research and treatment center for cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases.

"The goal of the event is to provide an outlet for healing for our family, and to raise money to assist people in need who require financial assistance during cancer treatment," said Marc A. Stefanski, Third Federal chairman and CEO. "We were able to afford the best of care for Rhonda, and we realize not everyone is as fortunate as we are."

Musician Dave Kushner adds: "Many people close to us have been touched personally by cancer, as I know firsthand, as the two most important women in my life have been affected by cancer. I believe that regardless of our backgrounds, access to treatment to beat this disease should be available to everyone."

A list? Well that cancels Axl out.

Len, in terms of rock singers, you know that's not true don't you?

Don't move the goalposts :lol: Honestly i still find it quite questionable, it is kind of a nostalgia genre now I suppose, who is there out there in rock that is doing anything really? Yeah, I suppose based on that default setting he's probably approaching an A list something or other.

Questioning if Axl is A list... :P yeh, Axl is definite A list material. And his vocals are usually pretty respectable. Most of the time he's right on pitch, he just doesn't always sing with the power we've come to expect from him... It Still don't change the fact that he's as big an A list than any of these all star jams have ever had (bigger) bigger than Steven Tyler or pretty much any rock singer.

Well i dunno man, i thought A list was like...Mick Jagger, Tom Cruise, people you see on red carpets, not people that struggle to sell out 5,000 seater gaffs. But then i stopped and thought about the equation, A list ROCK STAR...if not Axl then who else? Who else is there left? I mean you've got your Paul Mcartneys, your Stones...who else? Rog' Daltrey, Pete Townshend? It's sort of a dead genre here in 2015 so I suppose you could put Axl in, given the specific 'rock star' context.

Great idea. Use the hype of getting everyone to think the mystery singer is Axl and then on the day Scott Weiland shows up. It generates publicity and increases ticket sales, whereas if they just confirmed it was going to be Scott from the offset, then nobody would give a shit. It's called marketing.

100% this.

I think we all know Axl could be on any red carpet he wished to be on... He just doesn't want to do that stuff these days.

Definitely agree that the whole rock star thing has dried up, maybe that's why Axl has remained popular regardless of the fact that he really doesn't do a lot to maintain such a status (besides destroying rental sports cars).

I think it's like Bill Murray (if you want a similarly camera shy celeb) he could be everywhere, loads of people are interested in him but he shuns it and only comes out when he has something to do or say.

It's even more unlikely than the reunion that Axl would do one of the jam nights but! Maybe!? Interested in the topic if he does end up doing it but I don't think it's worth talking about until then... Unless someone knows something?

Axl isn't as famous as McCartney but he would garner the same type of press. The who are small fries compared to Axl. Stuck around too long and people take them for granted.
