 NEW ORLEANS, LA
Every once in a while a human being comes along that transcends everything: life, art, friendship, wit, music and love. They are among the true "one of a kinds".  Dave Rosser belongs to that category.  A New Orleanian for nearly 25 years, he is widely considered to be a true virtuoso guitar player by some of the most influential artists in the industry.

He has toured the globe extensively with The Afghan Whigs, Twilight Singers, Mark Lanegan and Marc Broussard.  He's worked on projects with Ani Difranco, Joseph Arthur and a list of who's who in music.  He's played with local bands too numerous to mention.  A working man's musician.  If that wasn't impressive on its own, he is also one of sweetest human beings on the planet.  His sense of humor and generosity rival his musical prowess.

Recently Rosser was diagnosed with inoperable colon cancer.  Several benefit shows are being set up to assist Rosser for the expensive treatment he'll need to combat this.  

If you can't make one of the shows, we hope you'll donate to this gofundme page which will give 100% of the proceeds to him. 

Thank you.


UPDATE 11/2/2016:

Two benefit shows have been announced for Dave's Medical Fund. For the full details visit: www.theafghanwhigs.com

Also, our original goal was 20K. We blew past that within 24 hours thanks to all of you. It's now at 50K and we're hopeful we can hit that. A huge thank you to everyone who has donated so far.

I don't think I've missed a show of yours in Seattle since first hearing you play with the Twilight Singers at the Crocodile Dave. Thanks for all your wonderful playing and inspiration!

I'm deeply saddened to hear about your diagnosis . Stay strong don't listen or pay attention to what "odds" they may say .my mom survived for many many yrs after stage 4 ovarian cancer , she survived and beat the odds for many years it was the sheer strength and will to not give up thou her odds were very very grim. I've seen you play many many times with the twilight singers and the afghan whigs and love what u have brought with your axe skills. Don't give up !!!!! My heart and strength goes out very deeply to you : ) ; ) !!!
