On December 14th, 2014 at the Canyon Club in Agoura Hills, a number of Los Angeles based radio and music personalities gathered to raise money for former Pat ‘Parquet’ Kelley, a former KMET DJ who is fighting MS. Hosting the night were a slew of Los Angeles radio luminaries including Cynthia Fox and Jim Ladd, both of whom were DJ’s at KMET during the stations heyday in the 1970’s (lovingly Jim Ladd referred to Pat Kelley as his hero). Among the musicians who gathered included Little Feat members Paul Barrere and Fred Tackett, singer woman Janiva Mangress, songwriter Dan Navarro (writer of Pat Benatar’s mega hit We Belong) and blues monster George Thorogood (who also brought along his buddy Slash from LA’s own Guns N’ Roses).
George Thorogood was announced as the shows headliner and up until the moment Slash stepped on stage, the audience (myself included) had no idea he was both in attendance and was going to jam. The duo performed three songs together including Lets Work Together and the classic One Scotch, One Bourbon, One Beer. Footage of the performance was posted up at Blabbermouth and if you are a fan of Thorogood its a performance worth checking out.
Unfortunately a set list from the show is unavailable and I cannot remember the third song the duo played, or the names of the previous three songs that George Thorogood performed solo acoustic. Sorry! But I hope you enjoy the pictures!
