Benefit for Witherfall/White Empress Drummer

White Empress and Witherfall drummer Adam Sagan has been diagnosed with Lymphoma (a cause close to my heart - we lost Joey Ramone to the same disease). He's currently going through chemotherapy, and there's a benefit concert coming up on March 10 to help defray his medical costs. More Info Here

Witherfall/White Wizzard vocalist & composer extraordinaire Joseph Michael said in a recent email: "A gathering of all that is Metal for a great cause!!! Helping out a damn good friend, amazing musician, and all around good guy, Adam Sagan. As most of you know, he was diagnosed with cancer November of 2015. After learning of his cancer, I immediately went into action to put together a benefit to help raise money for medical costs and other expenses. But why would it be a typical benefit?!? Adam is not a typical human. He is a fucking beast!!! And he is a musician whose passion for his craft superceeds most. This is a gathering of his favorite local metal bands ready to melt our faces off and rock the fuck on, as Adam has done since his diagnosis. Adam will kick cancer's ass and the Metal community will be there to keep encouraging him to keep on kicking. So let's do this shit!! Bands are as follows:

The Grande Machine
Tomorrow Brings New Blood
We Are Legion

$20 entry Raffles and prizes PBR specials All proceeds will go towards Adam's cancer fund."

Anyone who's anywhere close to the concert, BE THERE! Those of us too far away can still help: you can make donations directly at: gofundme

Concert organizers, take note - FILM the event and put it on DVD/BluRay so the rest of us can buy it to help the cause. I know I'd like to personally snatch up one.
