Any Los Straitjackets fans here? Guitarist Daddy O'Grande ( aka Danny Amis) was hit with a bad form of cancer last year and while he's getting some promising treatments, the cost is staggering, even with insurance. He held off on asking for help, but he's in a jam and not being able to tour is making it worse. If you've ever seen these guys play you know they are a blast. Sort of a mix between Link Wray, Dick Dale and the Ventures.
If you're a fan of the band and feel inclined to help, you can do so buy supporting the band and seeing them LIVE w/ Bill Kirchen @ Bridge Street Live on Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011. Showtime: 8pm - Tickets are $22, $32
