Any fans of the band Love on here?

I was excited to read in the new Mojo magazine about the new line up of Love that Arthur Lee was putting together with plans of a European tour this summer and a new album. Then I read this sad news on the Love messageboards :( -


Arthur Lee from Love has recently been
diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia
and has undergone 3 weeks of aggressive
chemotherapy. Doctors are hopeful for a full
recovery, but Arthur still faces more chemo,
extensive hospital stays, and a possible bone
marrow transplant. Arthur Lee has no health
insurance to cover his growing (over
$100,000+) medical bills.

To help cover his medical expenses, Spaceland
Productions, Bruce Solar from The Agency
Group, and Mark Linn from Delmore Recording
Society are putting on a benefit concert /
tribute for Arthur.

The concert will be held in America late May / early
June with the line up determining the
location. Artists so far confirmed
include X, Calexico, and Cake. Baby
Lemonade are also available to back up any singer
and there will be a string section as well.
All proceeds will go towards Arthur's medical expenses.
