James Williamson, guitarist of iconic rock n’ roll group The Stooges, is presenting a special one night only performance of his recent solo album Re-Licked, at the Bootleg HiFi on Friday, January 16th. It’s just been announced that famed punk rock guitarist Cheetah Chrome (The Dead Boys, Rocket From the Tombs, The Batusis) has been added to the impeccable roster. Other special guests include: Alison Mosshart (The Kills/Dead Weather), Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedys), Lisa Kekaula (The Bellrays), Carolyn Wonderland, Ron Young, Joe Cardamone, and more. Plus, you never know who else might show up to this sure-fire, spectacular rock n’ roll fueled evening.
We last caught Cheetah putting on an epic comeback show at the Whiskey last Spring, performing tracks off his most recent album release, SOLO, which includes cuts from a 2010 Nashville recording session featuring Sylvain Sylvain (New York Dolls), Lez Warner (The Cult), and Sean Koos (Joan Jett and The Blackhearts). He also published a must-read autobiography in 2010 called Cheetah Chrome: A Dead Boy’s Tale: From the Front Lines of Punk Rock.
