Our friend Scott Schinder is once again exploring the limits of modern medicine with another extended stay at Austin's St. Davids hospital South as of Sept. 17, 2018. He's expected to make a full recovery and is covered by medical insurance, but in the meantime he's at the mercy of his friends' generosity to help him get on his feet financially. Fortunately, his old GoFundMe page is still active, so please feel free to kick in a few bucks if you're so inclined.
Many of you know Scott from his music and popular culture writings for various publications in the U.S. and overseas, including Rolling Stone, Creem, Entertainment Weekly, Billboard, Time Out New York, Newsday, Stereophile, Musician, Tower Pulse, New Musical Express, Melody Maker and Texas Music Magazine. He's also written several music-related books and liner notes for numerous CD reissues and box sets and has contributed essays and other pieces to many other books, including all six editions of The Trouser Press Record Guide.
We hope you can join us in our effort to help Scott get well and remove some of the financial worries that come from yet another unexpected hospital stay.
