JohnPaulJones.comLed Zeppelin's John Paul Jones and Queen's Brian May are among the revered rockers who will perform at the 2012 edition of the annual Sunflower Jam Superjam benefit concert, which takes place September 16 at London's Royal Albert Hall. The event's lineup also will feature Deep Purple drummer Ian Paice, Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickenson, ex-Whitesnake guitarist Micky ***** and a house band featuring former Scorpions guitarist Uli Jon Roth and longtime Paul McCartney keyboardist Paul "Wix" Wickens, among others.
During the show, May will be performing with actress/singer Kerry Ellis, who was an original cast member of the Queen-themed musical We Will Rock You. More performers will be added to the bill soon.
The Sunflower Jam was founded in 2006 by Paice's wife, Jacky, and raises money to support holistic and alternative healing programs in the United Kingdom. Jacky Paice reports that this year's jam will feature a tribute to late Deep Purple keyboardist Jon Lord, who was married to her twin sister, Vickie.
