    A good friend of mine and engineer Scott Harding was in a horrible car crash a few weeks ago returning from a studio in a cab. 3 Kids were drag racing and ran a red light and plowed into the side of the cab and then fled the scene, the next morning the car was reported stolen. As a result of the crash, Scott in now paralyzed below the waist. Like a lot of people in the industry, Scott had no health insurance and very little in the bank. All of his friends, fellow engineers, and musicians are pulling together to help raise money for the HUGE bills that are starting to come in as a result of the accident.

    Benefit concerts are being organized and below is the first one. If you are in NYC and want to hear some incredible musicians and help someone at the same time, this is the night.

    Show was a complete success. Thanks to everyone for going and donating.

    Joel Hamilton, an engineer and friend of Scott's at G room studio has signed up for the scooter cannonball run from san fran to delaware and will be looking for donations or sponsors to raise money for Scott. His goal is to raise $10,000 by racing a 25hp scooter across the country against hundreds of others. He's nuts but it's for a good cause. As soon as he sets up the page, I'll post it here.
