One of my friends Pat Dinizio, lead singer of The Smithereens is in jeopardy of losing his full ability to play guitar due to damage in his right arm & hand. Unfortunately, because of being a self-employed musician, what little insurance (if any) isn't enough to cover his procedure that he needs in just a few short weeks.

I am calling on all friends, associates and SMITHEREENS FANS to step up & find it your heart and rock & roll soul to dig deep in your pockets! Let's all payback Pat in this way for giving us so many great songs throughout all these years & hopefully many more to come.

Please give what you can. I can assure all of you that anything you give will be appreciated and used for the sole purpose of helping fund Pats surgery.

Thank you to all of you in advance!
