We Need Your Help
A very dear friend of ours, Brian "BOC" O'Connor from Eagles of Death Metal was recently diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. Last month he had surgery and is on the mend but will be undergoing follow up treatments and chemo for quite some time. As a musician, he of course does not have health insurance. So, his friends and fans are rallying for BOC. There are 2 ways you can help.
1) you can make a donation at: http://www.brianeodm.org/
2) buy tix for this kick ass benefit show in LA on August 12th with Queens of the Stone Age and Eagles of Death Metal.
