The Records, John Wicks’ Health Issues & A Star-Studded Benefit

The Records, John Wicks’ Health Issues & A Star-Studded Benefit

As anyone who reads this blog likely knows, I may be the biggest Records fan on the planet. When Phil Brown, the bands original bass player passed away, we talked about it. John Wicks, the band’s lead singer and co-author of all of those memorable songs wrote a a beautiful tribute song for Phil.

Now, we come to learn that Wicks has cancer, too. On October 8, there will be a concert in Los Angeles to benefit John Wicks and his battle with the disease. The lineup for the show is an incredible list of who’s – who from the glory days of the genre. I will be flying cross country to attend. I hope you will consider doing so as well.

The Records’ October newsletter stated it best so below you’ll find it verbatim.

One time only – a chance to see Al Stewart, The Bangles, Denny Laine, Peter Case, The Kennedys & The Muffs Join John Wicks for a special show!


Don’t miss this! If you’re reading this newsletter, by now you know that John Wicks of The Records is battling stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Records fans everywhere will be getting together in Los Angeles CA at the Teragram Ballroom for an unforgettable evening of entertainment from a list of who’s-who in pop music including Al Stewart, The Bangles, Denny Laine, Peter Case, The Muffs, The Kennedys (and a surprise guest!), all in an effort to raise money to help John battle this disease. Hosted by Chris Carter of Breakfast with The Beatles, this event promises to be a night you’ll never forget.

General admission tickets are $40, while VIP tickets (which include a seating within the front 3 rows, a meet & greet, sound check access and a poster) are on sale for $100 while they last.
