Rock Out for a Cause

August 10th, 2011

Singer Josh Todd and guitarist Keith Nelson first met through their tattoo artist in L.A. They bonded over a shared love of AC/DC and began working on demos. Things were going well so the duo added bass and drums and, ultimately, a second guitar in order to perform live as Buckcherry. The hard-rocking self-titled debut disc featured several hit songs and earned the group plenty of rave reviews and album sales. The follow-up, Time Bomb, came out in 2001, and despite early success, Buckcherry went on hiatus. But three years later Todd and Nelson reunited and joined by new bandmates recorded 15, which went platinum. Buckcherry (above, playing “Lit Up”) has since released two more discs. And you can see them play Music Hall of Williamsburg tomorrow night. This is a benefit show for Aidan Seeger, a six-year-old who needs a bone marrow transplant in order to stop the degenerative process of a rare brain disease called adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD).
