Sonny Mayo Announces Gofundme Campaign

Sonny Mayo, former Snot/Ugly Kid Joe/Sevendust/Amen guitarist, has launched a gofundme campaign, to raise funds for cutting edge medical treatment following a second heart attack earlier this year.

“I have been clean and sober for over 16 years”, comments Sonny.  “I don’t smoke, and I’ve lived a plant based diet for nearly 5 years. Even with the prescribed medications and my clean lifestyle, I am still at risk of having further complications with my stents due to the long term effects of the two heart attacks. My goal is to receive allogeneic mesenchymal stem cells to treat the damage and inflammation in my arteries and my heart. Unfortunately, the treatment is not covered by insurance”.

Sonny has spent the last four years working with Rock To Recovery, a non-profit treatment program based in Southern California that uses music therapy to help those in recovery.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
