Corey Taylor, Geezer Butler, Matt Sorum Set For Rock Hall Event

(Classic Rock) Geezer Butler, Corey Taylor and many other acts will perform at a benefit concert to celebrate Deep Purple and Cheap Trick's enrolment into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.

The Adopt The Arts benefit at Hollywood's Fonda Theatre on May 12 will also showcase performances from former Guns N' Roses members Matt Sorum and Gilby Clarke, Red Hot Chili Peppers' Chad Smith, The Cult's Billy Duffy, Sex Pistols' Steve Jones and Hole's Courtney Love.

The event will raise funds to promote arts education in US public schools. Deep Purple and Cheap Trick will be inducted into the 2016 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame on April 8 (Friday).

Concert host and former GNR drummer Matt Sorum says: "This isn't just about your kid who may or may not be in public school - this is about our community. A lot of entertainers and wealthy people in the entertainment industry don't know what is happening in America's public schools." Read more here.
