KENNY EDWARDS (Bryndle) Ill and In Need Of Your Help
Just got an e-mail on Kenny Edwards today:
Kenny is in desperate need of an air ambulance to return home to his beloved Southern California.
The cost of this flight is beyond his resources. His friends have come together to help pay for this flight to bring Kenny home. Any help you can give us would be greatly appreciated.
Please feel free to pass this on. We must bring Kenny home.
Thank You for your help!
The latest news is that he's to be air-lifted home to California tomorrow (August 13th) and more medical care will follow.
Please visit www.kennyedwards.com for more information. There's a PAYPAL donation button on the site.
A bit of a refresher: Kenny Edwards has been a force in the "California Sound" of pop/rock since 1967 when he formed The Stone Poneys with Linda Ronstadt and Bob Kimmel. He's also worked with Brian Wilson,Don Henley, Emmylou Harris, Stevie Nicks and J.D. Souther among others.
In addition to his solo work as a performer, he returned to his roots as a "group member" when he became part of BRYNDLE, along with the three other solo artists who decided to harmonize in this special way; Andrew Gold, Wendy Waldman and Illfolks fave Karla Bonoff.
He's Ill, Folks! I know times are tough, and people are asking you for donations all the time, too. So here's the deal. How about sending FIVE BUCKS to Kenny, not as a donation, but in return for your FIVE song download below. You're getting solid 256 kb downloads of FIVE songs from the first Bryndle album...all with the guys on lead vocals (Kenny and Andrew).
1. I Want to Touch You
3. We Walked This Road
4. Streets of Your Town
5. The Wheel.
Can you spare $5 for these 5 downloads? If you can Paypal more, that's great. (The Paypal donation button is at www.kennyedwards.com). Thank you.
