Drummer Kenney Jones (Small Faces, Faces, The Who, The Law) has announced he will be reuniting with his former Who band mates Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend for a benefit concert for prostate cancer awareness.
Following a routine check up last summer, Jones himself was diagnosed with prostate cancer. After an MRI scan showed the disease had not spread, he underwent treatments in January. The concert, dubbed ‘Rock ‘n’ Horsepower’ will benefit Prostate Cancer UK, which was a huge support in Kenney’s diagnosis and recovery.
The concert will be held June 14 at Ewhurt’s Hurtwood Park Polo Club. Genesis’ Mike Rutherford and the Moody Blues’ John Lodge, and Procol Harum will also be a part of the lineup. “The line up is looking amazing,” said Jones. “I have a number of very talented friends on board who are set to make this day a totally unique event,” he added. Jones joined the Who in 1978 death after the death of drummer Keith Moon and was with them through 1988.
