For four decades, Tony Erba has been a fixture, an activist and a trail-blazer in the hardcore and punk-rock scenes. He’s toured the world and released countless albums and 45s with numerous legendary bands, from 9 Shocks Terror to Cheap Tragedies to Amps to 11 to Face Value. He’s also been a vocal supporter and promoter of bands and people in need, performing numerous shows for others.
Now, Tony is in need of help from his friends. For more than a decade, Tony has dealt with heart problems. The issue recently became life-threatening when he collapsed in his home and was rushed to the hospital for emergency quintuple-bypass heart surgery.
Thankfully, the surgery was successful, but the repercussion are two-fold: Tony is facing massive medical bills and he’s not able to work or draw a salary while he’s recuperating.
There is no time-table for a return to work and, in the meantime, Tony is faced with growing debts resulting from medical bills that won’t be covered by his insurance.
Any amount will help Tony get through this very difficult time.
Thank you for helping Tony — someone who has stepped up to help so many in need. It’s time to step up and help a friend to so many and one the most unique members of our music community.
