CUMULUS MEDIA Classic Rock WNNX(ROCK 100.5)/ATLANTA recently paid tribute to the lives of GLENN FREY, DAVID BOWIE, LEMMY and SCOTT WEILAND of STONE TEMPLE PILOTS with a Rock Wake held by ROCK 100.5's morning show BAILEY & SOUTHSIDE.
The wake took place this past SATURDAY, JANUARY 30th, featuring four tribute bands including SEVEN BRIDGES (THE EAGLES), STONE TEMPLE PIRATES (STP), BUILT FOR SPEED (MOTORHEAD), and a DAVID BOWIE tribute.
The night also acted as a fundraiser for the AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY with $5.00 from each ticket contributed to cancer research. Both BOWIE and MOTORHEAD’s LEMMY KILMISTER were victims of the disease.
“We could not let these musicians leave us without a proper send off," said WNNX PD GREG AUSHAM. "JASON BAILEY and SOUTHSIDE STEVE did an amazing job putting together this tribute and the audience approved."
Over 1,000 people attended the Rock Wake, selling out the metro-ATLANTA venue, 37 MAIN.
