Bumblefoot, Vinny Appice, Glen Sobel & more set for 2nd annual RockGodz Hall of Fame

RockGodz Hall of Fame announces its 2nd Induction Ceremony & Show featuring a host of new inductees, including guitarist Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal from Guns N’ Roses; Vinny Appice, drummer for Black Sabbath and Dio; bassist Tony Franklin, formerly with The Firm and Jimmy Page; Glen Sobel, drummer for Alice Cooper and SIXX A.M.; guitarist Mitch Perry from the Michael Schenker Group, Cher and Glenn Hughes; Brian Tichy from Whitesnake; and other artists to be announced. These prestigious rockers join the ranks of original RockGodz Hall of Fame inductees Doug Aldrich, Rudy Sarzo, Joe Vitale, Chris Slade, Jason Ebs and Steve Vai, among others.

The Induction Ceremony takes place on March 25th at 8 p.m. at Vamp’d, Danny “The Count” Koker’s popular Rock Bar and Grill, 6750 W Sahara Ave., Las Vegas, NV 89146, (702) 220-8849.

The ceremony will be hosted by Las Vegas personality Steve Hart from Mandalay Bay’s legendary Foundation Room. Most inductees will walk the Red Carpet meet-and-greet for press and fans and will participate in video interviews to be posted on RockGodzHallofFame.com. No gathering of musicians would be complete without hearing them play, so all inductees will hit the stage to perform their biggest or most popular hits. The Jet Velocity All Star Band, which is fronted by RockGodz’ own Janea & Jason Ebs from Ecotonic and also features Lez Warner, Gregg Fox, and Mikey Bones Gerbino, will bring down the thunder for a night of rock and roll and celebration. Merchandise will also be available for purchase at the show.

Rock Godz Hall of Fame is founded on the idea that some of rock music’s most profoundly important contributions have been made by a group of heretofore unheralded musicians. History, albeit unjustly or ignorantly, sometimes overlooks these unsung warriors, these astonishingly gifted players who may not have ever been duly recognized or celebrated. Rock Godz Hall of Fame is driven to change all of that by honoring the individuals and bands and highlighting their past and current contributions to rock and roll.

Tickets are $15.
