QUEEN, COOPER & ZEP: Come Together to Fight Cancer
Brian May, John Paul Jones and Alice Cooper headline cancer benefit in London.
Queen guitarist Brian May, Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones and Alice Cooper were among the artists who came together Sunday night at London's Royal Albert Hall for the annual Sunflower Jam, a benefit for cancer research founded by Jacky Paice, wife of Deep Purple drummer Ian Paice. Also on the bill were Paice and Iron Maiden's Bruce Dickinson.
Among the musical combinations and songs performed, the list included May and Kerry Ellis doing an acoustic version of "Born Free"; Dickinson doing The Who's "Behind Blue Eyes"; Cooper doing "Nadine," "Elected," and, with May on guitar, "School’s Out"; May, Paice and Jones on Purple's "Black Night"; and the all-star finale of "Smoke on the Water."
