Harvey Mandel is fighting a rare form of cancer

Innovative electric guitar virtuoso Harvey Mandel is fighting a rare form of cancer and could use some help.

Mandel, who has played with John Mayall, the Rolling Stones and Canned Heat, among others, began to notice a swelling in his nose after it was broken in 2011 but doctors told him it was a result of the accident. A series of personal tragedies, including the deaths of his son and mother, delayed his getting treatment for the break and, by the time he attended to the situation, the swelling had become much worse.

In mid-2013, Harvey returned to the doctor who was concerned about the course his nose had taken and advised him to see a specialist. After a series of tests and biopsies it was determined that Mandel had an invasive cancer inside of his nose.

After exhaustive research, Mandel found a world renowned doctor in Chicago that specializes in cancer of the nasal passages; however, he does not take insurance for his work so Harvey is being left with large bills in an effort to save his life.

Since December 7, Mandel has had five surgeries, the last of which was Wednesday.  The good news is the final operation was expected to remove the last of the cancer. The bad news is that Harvey still has a long road ahead of him as he goes through a series of further operations to rebuild his nose.

A special site has been started, helpharveymandel.com, where Harvey's family is hoping to raise $50,000 towards the bills. 

Пластинка содержит благородную интерпретацию уникальной формы американского искусства двумя гигантами блюза

Высокий класс «ветеранского» блюза, филигранный уровень, легко узнаваемая классика 60-х

Достаточно традиционный блюзрок. Приглашенные музыканты и многоопытный продюсер помогли Шону избежать банальных повторов и продемонстрировать свои лучшую технику и музыкальные идеи

Динамичный взрывной альбом полный гитарных соло. Новый этап в творчестве 65-летнего ветерана-слингера. На начало мая альбом уже почти месяц в блюзовом хит-параде США (Биллборд)

Green and Blues максимально точно отражает содержание диска. Здесь не только песни и композиции Питера Грина (хотя их большинство), но и другой блюз. Блюз других великих исполнителей, но всё равно всё вращается вокруг британского блюза второй половины 60-х, Fleetwood Mac и John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers
