Some of the musicians taking part in the "Classic Rock Cares" tour — including AC/DC singer Brian Johnson and bassist Cliff Williams, Joe Lynn Turner (ex-RAINBOW, DEEP PURPLE, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN) and Steve Luongo (JOHN ENTWISTLE BAND) — were the featured guests on the nationally syndicated radio show "Rockline" with host Bob Coburn on July 11, 2007. The program is now available for streaming at this location.

Classic Rock Cares concerts are a series of fundraising concerts which benefit the John Entwistle Foundation. The foundation, named for THE WHO's late bassist, provides free music education and instruments for underprivileged children through the public library system.

Backed by a group of world-class musicians led by drummer Steve Luongo of THE JOHN ENTWISTLE BAND, Turner sings the best of DEEP PURPLE and RAINBOW. Johnson and Williams, joined by Luongo and Mark Hitt, perform AC/DC's record-breaking hits along with their own new material.

The non-stop classic rock show culminates with all of the participating musicians taking part in a raucous "Highway to Hell" finale.
