Bend it Like Jonesy
You probably know him as the host of eclectic daily radio program Jonesy's Jukebox or as the former guitarist for the Sex Pistols, but you may not know about Steve Jones' true passion. I'm not referring to strippers and lager, I'm talking about soccer, or as they call it every-freakin-where else in the world: football.
Along with some other lads -- among them former soccer star turned reliably thuggish character actor Vinnie Jones, musician Viv Campbell (Dio, Def Leppard) and actor Jason Satham (Crank) -- Jonesy plays on a local league team known as Hollywood United Football Club. This weekend, Hollywood United is playing in a charity game against Fram at Nansen Field out near Palos Verdes.
This international charity soccer triple-header will feature three games: England vs. Scotland, Germany vs. U.S.A. and Hollywood United vs. Fram. Other celebs scheduled to play in the event include actor Anthony LaPaglia, Alice in Chains guitarist Jerry Cantrell, soccer reporter and announcer for ESPN Allen Hopkins and guitarist for The Cult, Billy Duffy.
The cost is a measly $5, which includes a raffle entry. Besides, who wouldn't want to see the guitar player from Def Leppard play a little footie?!
