AxlRose 102009

Former Guns N Roses drummer Steven Adler and former AC/DC drummer Simon Wright are among those scheduled to perform in West Hollywood, California, during the John Bonham Birthday Bash tribute concert on May 31, which would have been Bonham's 64th birthday.

Adler and Wright will join other high profile drummers Vinny Appice (Black Sabbath), Frankie Banali (Quiet Riot), Glen Sobel (Alice Cooper) and Carmine Appice (Rod Stewart) for the concert, which will see each celebrity drummer getting the chance to play their favorite Led Zeppelin song on a Bonham replica drum kit.

"There are no rules other than to have fun putting your own groove and character into your song choice," says event host/drummer Brian Tichy, whose credits include albums by Foreigner and Whitesnake. "It's such a unique night, seeing how all these great drummers approach the same drum set making it their own."
