 NORTHRIDGE, CA
On February 1st, 2017, Albert Wing suffered a stroke which disabled the motor functions on the right side of his body from head to foot. After two weeks in the hospital, four more in a physical therapy facility, and now in a facility with no physical therapy available, he is still unable to stand or walk, and must continue to be under constant care and cannot yet go home. His medical expenses are mounting every day, yet he still requires months of physical therapy if there is to be any hope of recovery. We, his musical cohorts in Banned From Utopia, ask that you join us in helping Albert gather the funds necessary to cover his already overwhelming medical expenses and ongoing physical therapy expenses so that he can access the services he needs to recover from this debilitating, life changing, frightening experience, and return to being the productive, astonishingly creative musician he has been all his life. Imagine being a concert pianist and suddenly losing the use of your right hand. Your career, and your life, would be forever altered. That's what Albert is facing unless we pull together and lend a hand to a friend. Without ongoing physical therapy, regaining his prodiguous skills and the dignity of self-sufficiency will not be possible. Please, especially if you have ever seen or heard or been touched by Albert's music, help our friend with a donation, share this, spread the word, and know that you have made a difference in his life and future. Thank you!

A very big thank you to Dave Owen and Nicola Taylor and everyone else who signed this wonderful card for our friend Albert Quon Wing. When I stopped by for a visit and gave him the card, we were both blown away with gratitude, knowing there are folks all around the world wishing Albert well and sending him good energy for a speedy recovery. Thank you one and all, and please help us keep the ball rolling with Albert's GoFundMe campaign. He took a tumble a couple of weeks ago and cracked three ribs, but he's mending well and his spirits are good, especially with the help of gestures like this great card. Thank you, everyone!

TBT. Here's a shot of the amazing '88 Zappa band, with Albert being Albert, right next to Frank with the electric megaphone. I spoke with Albert last night, and he is extremely grateful and relieved at the response so far to the Banned From Utopia effort to help him with his medical expenses. We have a long way to go and every little bit helps, no matter how small. Thanks to everyone for their generosity, words of encouragement and help in sharing the posts and spreading the word. Music is the best!

Feel free to help out, anonymously if you prefer.

Thank you!
