Legendary eighties hard rock band Little Caesar have been forced to cancel their appearance at the 43rd birthday part being staged by the even-more-legendary Rainbow Bar & Grill on West Hollywood’s Sunset Strip this April 12.
And the band didn’t hold back in detailing the medical condition that will prevent whiskey-throated singer Ron Young from appearing.
“The wound site is healing slowly and he’s still bleeding pretty bad,” the band said on Facebook, in reference to back surgery Young recently underwent.
Little Caesar – best known for their 1989 cover of Aretha Franklin’s “Chain Of Fools”, embarked on an extensive European Tour last year and were to return to live duty at the Party In The Parking Lot, now an annual event at the notorious venue after which the band Rainbow was reputedly named.
The event will go ahead with Stephen Pearcy, the former lead singer of Ratt, headlining. Other bands performing include are Fear, Motorcycle Boy, Barb Wire Dolls, Slunt and Nightmare.
Pearcy has released two solo singles since splitting with Ratt again some six months ago.
“All will be well,” the Little Caesar post continued. “it’s just going to take some time. We look forward to rocking out with you all real soon….just not this soon.”
