Leading up to Depp and Simmons who hit the stage as the last act of the night, there was plenty of entertainment.
Gilby Clarke was a fun master of ceremonies while anchoring the music for the evening. The night started off with a rousing rendition of “It’s Only Rock N Roll,” by The Rolling Stones and “Pump It Up,” by Elvis Costello.
Debby Holiday brought it, with her sassy version of the Rod Stewart and The Faces’ classic “Stay With Me.” Holiday was the surprise powerhouse of the evening.
The audience was a “Who’s Who” of Rock N Roll and celebrity with Christine Devine of Fox News; Ralph Saenz of Steel Panther; Danish Prince Mario-Max and the it couple Jo Hilton and Dr. McCoy Moretz.
