Guitar Shorty's Fund
David Kearney, known as Guitar Shorty, is one of the last living 1950s music legends, known for being major musical influence on Jimi Henrix, Buddy Guy and many other great guitarists, he has been recording and performing all around the world for over 60 years, and he continues to keep the Blues alive and put smiles on people's faces, wherever he plays. He is also a wonderful human being with a great heart who has always been there for his friends and fans, and has always given his best to them, both on and off stage, as many of you know. This time, he really needs your help and support, and all donations would be very apprecaited.

There are not many beautiful kind men who care about his fans like Guitar Shorty. He is a really generous man who always gives 100% to his fans and music and always there to help with advice to new people just coming up. He needs our help now, so please give what you can.
In a few days my paycheck will be deposited and I will send a donation. It won't be much but I know that it all adds up. This is such terrible news to read that it made me cry, A man spends a lifetime working hard and giving of himself only to have everything taken away from him in the middle of the night by some punk ass thief who deserves a lifetime of misery and suffering. Don't worry, it will come, hopefully sooner than you could ever expect. As for Guitar Shorty, I am happy that you were not there and in any physical danger or hurt when this happened. That is the most important thing. And please dwell on this thought - they may have been able to take the equipment, your tools of the trade, but they will never be able to rob you of your gift, the music that is in your heart.
Thanks for all of your support I can't do nothing without you. I'm doing the best I can. Pray for me I'm trying to get it all together. I'll always love you as long as I live and each time I bend a note I think about you.! God Bless You. Guitar Shorty
