The star-studded event, which is organized by the Rock Against MS Foundation, helps raise awareness about multiple sclerosis and funds to aid people fighting the disease.
Other artists slated to perform at the fundraiser, according the foundation’s official Facebook page, include founding Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler, ex-GN’R guitarist Gilby Clarke, former Quiet Riot, Ozzy Osbourne and Whitesnake bassist Rudy Sarzo and Alice in Chains bassist Mike Inez. A full lineup will be announced on Wednesday, February 15.
The 2017 Rock Against MS Benefit also will honor and celebrate late comedy legend Richard Pryor, who battled multiple sclerosis before his death in 2005. For more info about the event, check RockAgainstMS.org soon.
As previously reported, Roadcase Royale is fronted by Liv Warfield — former backing vocalist for Prince‘s band The New Power Generation — as well as her guitarist Ryan Waters and three of Wilson’s Heart band mates — keyboardist Chris Joyner, bassist Dan Rothchild and drummer Ben Smith.
