GODSMACK, VELVET REVOLVER, MÖTLEY CRÜE Members To Take Part In 'Bezerk' Project

Guitar Center announced today that MÖTLEY CRÜE's Tommy Lee and the STREET DRUM CORPS' Frank Zummo will present "Bezerk" — an exclusive project commissioned by Guitar Center, featuring some of today's top drummers and artists — as part of the upcoming Drum-Off Grand Finals, taking place January 8, 2010 at The Wiltern in Los Angeles. Artists performing in "Bezerk" include Chad Smith (RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS), Matt Sorum (GUNS 'N ROSES, VELVET REVOLVER), José Pasillas (INCUBUS), DJ Aero, Sully Erna (GODSMACK), Jay Weinberg, BANG! and others to be announced. Hosted by Stephen Perkins (JANE'S ADDICTION), this historic evening will also include a very special tribute to John Bonham by Jason Bonham, along with an exclusive collaborative performance by Danny Carey (TOOL) and Brann Dailor (MASTODON).

These all-star drummers will all come together on one stage to celebrate the night's main event: performances by the top five undiscovered drummers in the nation, who will compete in front of a capacity crowd and a panel of celebrity judges to see who will win a prize package worth more than $40,000 and the title of "Guitar Center Drum-Off Champion" — the nation's top undiscovered drummer. Guitar Center will also induct drum icons Billy Cobham and John Bonham into Guitar Center's Drum Legends as part of the evening's festivities.

Tickets for the show are only $10, and are on sale now at LiveNation.com.
