SAMMY HAGAR, VAN HALEN, NIGHT RANGER: Jam for Friend's Wife
Sammy Hagar is heading up a benefit for the wife of his longtime drummer.
The Concert for Liza will raise funds for Liza Cozad-Lauser, wife of The Waboritas drummer David Lauser. She's suffering from an inoperable tumor on her brainstem and is hoping to get the FDA to approve a trial drug that could possibly save her life.
The concert will be headlined by Hagar and the Waboritas and they'll be joined by Hagar's Chickenfoot bandmates Michael Anthony, Joe Satriani and tour drummer Kenny Aronoff, Jack Blades from Night Ranger and Billy Sheehan from Mr. Big. The show -- which sold out almost instantly -- will take place February 12th at the Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley, California. It will later be streamed on the Concert for Liza website.
