WOW! Machine Head front man, Robb Flynn, and Forbidden guitarist, Craig Locicero, are putting together a HUGE event for a good cause on January 17th at the Oakland Metro Operahouse in Oakland, California. The “Robb Flynn & Friends” benefit concert will feature members of Metallica, Slayer, Exodus, Testament, Suicide Silence, Death Angel, Forbidden and more for an all-star tribute band to Black Sabbath, and all of the proceeds will go to help out their friend, Nikki Davis. Here’s what Craig had to say on the event, “A good friend of ours and all around great person, Nikki Davis, was in a motorcycle accident with her husband Jeff. Sadly, Jeff died at the scene. Fortunately, Nikki survived but she was unconscious for a few days. She awoke to the daunting reality that her husband, soulmate and best friend had passed away. It was heartbreaking to all of us in the Bay Area scene. Robb Flynn and I have known Nikki for at least 25 years and she is a huge supporter of the Bay Area’s metal and punk scene. I wanted to help Nikki out a year ago, but most every band was busy on tour and unavailable. A few weeks ago, I had approached Robb about doing a benefit for Nikki and he thought it was a great idea. Robb has gone above and beyond to help bring together something very special and memorable to help Nikki on January 17th. He’s been the catalyst for getting this thing off the ground so quickly and Nikki is very thankful. We hope to raise enough money to help Nikki continue to get back on her feet because the healing is not finished. She still has medical bills to pay and we want to do anything we can to help our old friend. For those who can’t attend the concert, donations can be made to Nikki’s PayPal account at help_jeff_n_nikki_d@yahoo.com.”
