NEW WAVE LEGENDS THE PSYCHEDELIC FURS ANNOUNCE UK TOUR AND FUNDRAISER FOR FORMER GUITARIST
New wave legends The Psychedelic Furs played a benefit night for their former guitarist John Ashton at Bearsville Theater in New York this week for the first time in over a decade. An amazing night that also featured Gail Ann Dorsey (David Bowie/Tears For Fears) and Robert Burke Ware.
On June 8th of this year John was diagnosed with Stage 4 Prostate Cancer that had spread to his lymph nodes. Treatment is challenging. Surgery is not an option. John has begun an indefinite series of treatments involving radiation, hormone therapies, and possibly access to clinical trials through Sloan Kettering in New York City. Most health insurance policies do not cover the unexpected and inevitable snowballing expenses in situations such as this. You can still help HERE
