Let's Show Tom Cook Some Love

Tom Cook injured his foot recently, a hairline fracture on the fifth metatarsal bone.  It's not life-threatening, but it's put his job, his drumming, and his life on hold (and the medical bills are piling up).  He has to stay off his feet, keep his foot elevated in a splint, and let the bone heal.  He is also taking blood thinners to prevent blood clots.

So this Gofundme page is intended to help off-set his lost income and some of his medical bills. His need is pretty urgent.  There's a lot of love in the Twin Cities music community, please show some love for Tommy Cook!

If you wrote a book about Rock'n Roll music in Minneapolis, Tom Cook would be mentioned in it.  In reality, he could be the subject of a book about Rock'n Roll in Minneapolis!  Tom's played the drums in, and been the spiritual locomotive driving a stunning number of bands: Sons of Gloria, The Oddfathers, The Magnolias, The Martyrs, Elfi Snow, John Ewing, The Naked Apes, The Customers, Lights Out Committee, Deb Brown, Dave Rave, and many more.

He's dedicated his entire life to music.  He's recognized as one of the top veteran drummers in the Twin Cities.  He's also known for his gentle giant personality, he is as lovable as he is loved - and has a sprinkle of the crazies that all great artists have.  He is also known as Drummer Guy for his call-ins to KFAN, and he is also the star of WDMR!

Please share this with your friends and family, it's an opportunity to step up and help someone who is a big part of the local music community.  Please donate, it's urgent, and the money will go directly to Tom.
