Watch Sabbath, Slipknot, STP Members Talk Importance of Arts Education
In the lobby were autographed silent-auction items donated by Gene Simmons and Heart, with Sammy Hagar rum and vivid Shepard Fairey prints of Sabbath, Woody Guthrie, and Iggy and the Stooges. Figures are still being tallied, but so far, the night has raised well over $200,000, the highest sum for any Adopt the Arts show.
After it was over, Sorum sat in a dressing room, still excited about the night and the players, plus the experience of playing Sabbath’s “War Pigs” with Geezer on bass. “That was, like, little-kid shit,” he said with a grin. He hopes to spread that feeling to another generation of young music lovers.
“I’m not trying to make musicians and artists of the future,” Sorum said. “But I am trying to make creative and innovative people. We’re not trying to make the next rock star.”
