If you don’t already have plans for June 14th, you do now. X will be playing at the LA Weekly Music Awards at the Henry Fonda Theater. The SG News Wire reports that they won’t be walking away empty handed.
“So it’s no surprise that they’ll receive a long over-due Lifetime Achievement Award at this year’s annual LA Weekly Music Awards along with Brian Wilson, legendary KROQ DJ Rodney Bingenheimer, and songwriter Jeff Barry, who co-wrote with his wife, Ellie Greenwich, and producer Phil Spector ‘Be My Baby’ for the Ronettes and ‘River Deep, Mountain High’ — made famous by Tina Turner.”
They go on to say there’s no word if Billy Zoom will be playing with the band or not, but that there’s no difference which having seen X with and without Mr. Zoom I have to call bullshit on. There’s a HUGE difference. However, luckily most of their recent appearances have with with Zoom so I think there’s a good chance of him being there to dish out the rock.
