tragic news, and a call to action

April 13th, 2010 at 9:51

I found out today that a friend of mine’s 5-year-old son passed away suddenly, two weeks ago, from epilepsy.

I met Mike Gomoll (Joey’s dad) via our mutual friendship with the band Del Amitri. He and his wife adopted their three children from Mexico and were amazing, devoted parents. Many of the artists that Mike is friends with are donating tracks to create a benefit CD called “Joey’s Song”, the proceeds of which will go to the Epilepsy Foundation. So far, they have commitments for songs from:

Del Amitri (previously unreleased tracks)
Justin Currie
Kris Dollimore
Lowen & Navarro
Five For Fighting
Matthew Ryan
Eileen Rose
The Yell Leaders
The Woodlridge Brothers
The LeeDing Zero’s
