by Jeff Legg at 27 April 2017, 10:13 PM

The 3rd annual RIDE FOR RONNIE Motorcycle Rally and Concert, benefitting the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund, is set for Sunday, May 7, 2017, comprising a Motorcycle Ride through the streets of Los Angeles County and an afternoon of live music.  Last year's RIDE FOR RONNIE event raised over $50,000 for the cancer charity.

Riders will assemble at Harley-Davidson of Glendale with kickstands up at 11AM. Among those expected to join Dio Cancer Fund co-founder and president Wendy Dio and the cavalcade of motorcycle riders are rockers Lita Ford, Gilby Clarke (former Guns N' Roses guitarist), Sean McNabb (LYNCH MOB), Taime Downe (FASTER PUSSYCAT) and Xavier Muriel (BUCKCHERRY) plus actors Chris Bruno (The Dead Zone) and Sons of Anarchy's Emilio Rivera, Rusty Coones and Star Fields.

Gates at Los Encinos Park in Encino will open at 11:30AM for the concert portion of the event, featuring live entertainment provided by rockers LYNCH MOB, EDDIE MONEY, ROUGH CUTT, DIO DISCIPLES, THE LOVELESS, SONIA HARLEY and NO SMALL CHILDREN. Radio personality EDDIE TRUNK will handle hosting duties at the event, which will also include a raffle, silent and live auctions, food trucks, merchandise vendors and more. Lita Ford, Alex Grossi (QUITE RIOT guitarist), Jeff Pilson (FOREIGNER and former DIO guitarist), Marc Ferrari (COLD SWEAT) and Marty O'Brien (LITA FORD) will be on hand for the concert festivities.

GUNS N’ ROSES drummer Steven Adler is currently organizing players for an all-star jam, with more details set to be announced soon.

Metal Temple’s Jeff Legg spoke with Wendy about the event, Ronnie’s legacy, and how she plans to keep her late husband’s music alive.
