Drummer Kenney Jones will reunite with his former Who band mates Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey at a special U.K. charity event next month that will raise money for the fight against prostate cancer. Townshend and Daltrey are part of a lineup of well-known musicians that will hit the stage with Jones during the Rock 'n' Horsepower benefit , which will take place June 14 at the Hurtwood Park Polo Club in Surrey, England.
Other famous artists on the bill include Jeff Beck , Simply Red singer Mick Hucknall , Genesis and Mike & the Mechanics member Mike Rutherford , The Moody Blues ' John Lodge , ex- Foreigner bassist Rick Wills and John Parr . The star-studded concert will serve as the finale of the daylong event, which also will feature polo matches, an exhibition of vintage cars, a VIP luncheon, a charity auction and prize giveaways.
The fundraiser will benefit Prostate Cancer UK , which works toward raising awareness about the disease, as well as providing financial support to aid men who are battling prostate cancer.
In a recent interview with GetSurrey.co.uk , Jones revealed that he was diagnosed with prostate cancer last summer, and underwent treatment for the disease in January after an MRI scan revealed that the cancer hadn't spread.
Jones came to fame as the founding drummer of The Small Faces and The Faces . In late 1978, he joined The Who following the death of the band's longtime drummer Keith Moon . His last appearance as a member of the group came in 1988.
