Event description

Description

A once in a lifetime gathering of iconic musicians joining forces to celebrate the lifetime achievements of legendary drummer, Alvin Taylor (Jimi Hendrix, Sir Elton John, George Harrison, Eric Burdon, and Sly & the Family Stone, and more), who’s star is long overdue, and to honor the contributions and friendship of Goldy McJohn, founding father of Steppenwolf.

We were deeply saddened to announce the passing of Goldy McJohn, Founding Father of Steppenwolf, shortly after tickets for this benefit show originally went on sale. Goldy was "over the moon" after the first rehearsal for this show, and was in the midst of finalizing the set list with his colleagues when he was taken from us. His legacy is as golden as his name, and his influence will live on, deeply embedded in rock and roll as we know it today, as well as in our hearts. This concert will, now, also be a celebration of Goldy's life and contributions, with many of his colleagues and family members in attendance. We are committed to make this a show worthy of him for all those who loved him, and love him still.

Forming this "Super Group" are:

TERRY ILOUIS, Lead Vocalist for Great White

HAROLD BROWN, Drummer and Founding Member of War

GREG DOUGLAS, Guitarist for Steve Miller Band

JEFF PARIS, will perform in Goldy's place on keys and Hammond B3. Paris has performed/recorded/produced with Keb Mo, Bill Withers, Dan Fogelberg, Frankie Valli, A Taste of Honey, Stanley Clarke, George Duke, Bonnie Raitt, Cinderella, Y&T, Lita Ford, Vixen, and many more.

CARMINE ROJAS bass man who has performed/toured with David Bowie, Rod Stewart, Tina Turner, Stevie Wonder, Patti Labelle, Al Green, Eric Clapton, Billy Gibbons, Ron Wood - to name a few.

ALVIN TAYLOR, drummer, launched his career in his very early teens playing for Little Richard and went on to play with world renown artists such as Jimi Hendrix, Sir Elton John, George Harrison, Eric Burdon, and Sly & the Family Stone, just naming a few. Taylor is also well known in his community for his heart for the local music scene’s young, up-and-coming artists, and has mentored many.
