Eagles Of Death Metal bassist Brian O’Connor

The members of Them Crooked Vultures have announced a Benefit gig for Eagles Of Death Metal bassist Brian O’Connor, who was recently diagnosed with cancer. The musician is currently being taken care of in Los Angeles and will be undergoing chemo treatment shortly. Since O’Connor has no health insurance, members for several bands jumped into action after hearing the news. Members of Eagles of Death Metal, Queens of the Stone Age, Them Crooked Vultures and Rage Against The Machine, all currently on tour in different locations have made plans to help their friend. Them Crooked Vultures announced a July 5th show in London at the Brixton Academy, in the midst of their European tour. There will also be an LA show as well, but details are still forthcoming. Eagles of Death Metal will be dedicating all tour dates in their schedule to O’Connor’s cause. Dean Fertita from Dead Weather and QOTSA is slated to replace O’Connor on EODM's dates this week in Toronto, Santa Cruz, and San Francisco. Another musician is planned to help out on the rest of EODM tour dates until he returns. A statement from O’Connor was recently released: “In regards to my current health situation, with the remarkable support and love from my amazing friends and family, I am receiving the best medical and moral attention one could ask for. I cannot thank everyone enough for their continued support and involvement. I am excited for my full recovery and look forward to getting back to what I love most, melting face with my bass. I'm feeling great, after all, I am half unicorn. Keep ya posted.” If you’re interested in helping out, visit: http://www.pablove.org Recommended Listening: Strung Out On Foo Fighters (EP) Strings For The Deaf: The String Quartet Tribute to QUEENS of the STONE AGE String Quartet to Led Zeppelin
