VELVET REVOLVER, POISON guitarist C.C. Deville and RHINO BUCKET are among the artists that will reportedly perform at a benefit show on October 14 at the Canyon Club in Agoura Hills, CA. The the concert/fundraiser is being held for LA County Sheriff's Department deputy Jim Mulay (photo), who was critically injured while on duty during the attempted apprehension of an armed bank robbery suspect on August 28, 2006, in the city of Malibu. Mulay suffered a crushed spine, broken back and pelvis, and multiple broken ribs after the suspect intentionally rammed his car into Mulay's motorcycle, according to Sheriff's officials. Jim is improving daily, but is facing an extremely lengthy recovery and rehabilitation. In addition to the concert/fundraiser, a sheriff's relief fund has also been established for the continuing needs of Jim and his family during his lengthy battle to recover.

Deputy John Maio from the LA County Sheriff's Department told BLABBERMOUTH.NET, "We are also having a raffle during the show in which numerous artists/sports figures and restaurants have donated to. Ted Nugent and Eddie Van Halen are both sponsoring this event and have donated autographed guitars for the event. There is a chance Eddie may even play but it is NOT confirmed. He is a big sponsor of our event along with Ted Nugent." Other musicians expected to perform at the concert include STARBANGERS (an all-star house band featuring Eric Dover [JELLYFISH, SLASH], Brian Tichy [BILLY IDOL], Derek Sherinian [BILLY IDOL], and Stefan Adika [GILBY CLARKE]), Terri Nunn (BERLIN), and Dilana ("Rock Star: Supernova").

My guess is, maybe the Malibu Sheriff's Department has cut some of these guys some slack before.... that and it never hurts to earn a few credits for future problems.... A good cause, anyway though.

Thats this saturday. The Canyon Club is about 4 miles from my work, and about 10 from my house. I've been there before and I didn't understand why they chose that club to do the benefit, (cause its mainly country), but my sister told me why and it makes sense.
Anyways, I called the place to get tickets but you have to go through ticketmaster. Each ticket is $35 (which is fine) but theres another $27 per ticket charge(i hate ticketmaster). Not worth it. And that doesnt include dinner. But if you don't make a dinner reservation than you don't get seats and you have stand up towards the back. Add on dinner and its another $100 for food that sucks (I've been there a few times, so I speak from experience).

All in all, I'm donating money straight to the foundation but I'm not going. $200+ isn't worth watching VR perform 2 songs and than a bunch of other people I'm not sure I even like. But ya kno, I'd pay Slash $200 to hit CC Deville over the head with his guitar. Hell, I'd pay anyone to do that.

dinner reserations just to get to sit up close?     thats lame of the place.  I just paid 145 dollars for three tix... isnt that enough? My tickets say 2 drink minimum.    well Im happy just to go..... well anyways i just looked at the floorplan for the place and it shows that there is a dance floor. I think I am going to be in that spot.. I wouldnt sit for VR anyways

Okay well, if anyone wants my dinner reservations, its under the name Rasha ***** I won't give my number out here, but you can email me if you decide to take them. RashasBetter@aol.com.

In fact, I'm not sure you need the phone number.. maybe just the name.


Please do not give out your last name on the forum

Okay I just got back from the concert!  what a night!    Lots of bands played that ive never heard of.. Then  Rage Against the Machinehead came on for about 5 songs, the RUE for another 5 or six songs, Rhino Bucket came on and they did pretty good. then StarF%^ckers came on and CC Deville came during their set for 2 songs, one of the songs was "Helter Skelter".  Then Terri Nunn came onstage and sang 2 songs, one of which was from Steelers Wheel "Stuck in the MIddle". Dilana came out after that and sang "Roxanne", and "Zombie" from the Cranberries  and also a few other songs (my mind is blurry). VR came on at about 11:30 ish. Pamela Anderson came out and introduced them.
Their set list was

 1. Do it For the Kids
 2. Its So Easy
 3. Interstate Love Song
 4. Surrender
 5.Road House Blues
 6. Used to Love Her
 7. Slither


 NO NEW SONGS PLAYED!                     They kicked ass.  Very rockin show. It was totally worth my money. Ill have some pics up when I get back to my hometown on Monday.  I was right up to the end of the stage on Duffs side. No security, no barriers, it was so much fun!!
