Henry Rollins has called upon SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR frontman COREY TAYLOR along with ANTHRAX guitarist Scott Ian, SLAYER drummer Dave Lombardo, JANE’S ADDICTION guitarist Dave Navarro and members of ROB ZOMBIE‘s band, including guitarist John 5, for a benefit concert to be held on the 30th of November 30 in Hollywood.
All proceeds from the show will go to the charity, Drop In The Bucket. The charity is a Los Angeles- and Gulu, Uganda-based non-profit organisation that builds water wells and sanitation systems at large rural schools in sub-Saharan Africa.
Shepard Fairey designed the poster for the event and he will also be a guest DJ. COREY TAYLOR said about the event, “In a time when money is suspect, and politics looks a lot like schoolyard bullying, people forget that there are far greater issues going on in the world. One of which is the fact that millions of people live without water on a daily basis when we as Americans treat it like used tissue paper. It’s only common sense to think that if I can do something to not only help, but also raise awareness, then that’s exactly what I’m going to do.”
“Drop in the Bucket is one of the most important and selfless causes I have ever had the privilege to be a part of. And I can only hope that I do some good for it. And to be able to do that by putting on an awesome show with friends like Roy Mayorga, Scott Ian and John 5 just shows how good this business can be sometimes!”
Drop In The Bucket believes we can help create a world in which children are safe, healthy, educated and free from fear. And they believe that the key to achieving those ends is clean water and sanitation.
