Sandy Pearlman Medical Fund

sandy-pearlman-1

It’s no stretch to say that there would be no Dictators if not for Sandy Pearlman. He was the producer, manager, and visionary behind Blue Öyster Cult and the Dictators, and later produced the best works from the Clash and the Dream Syndicate. He was the maker of champions, the Captain Lou of music.

Sandy is dealing with some major health issues, and needs our help. He suffered a cerebral hemorrhage that’s left him unable to walk or talk, and is in need of crushingly expensive health care. A GoFundMe campaign has been set up to help pay for his care. Please give if you are so inclined. Every penny contributed will go towards his rehab and long-term care.

Celebrating the Thunderbolt!

What better way to celebrate your big day than with your own damned theme song?!?! Rocking the “Thunderbolt Theme” with Thunderboss back in ’06 is birthday boy and drummer extraordinaire, J.P. “Thunderbolt” Patterson!
