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. 

Возможно, если просто воспринимать диск как развлекательную музыку, всё покажется ОК. Однако в нашей стране к бритроку у публики особое, пристрастное отношение – музыка известна тут массе людей до ноты, до нюанса, до малейшего вздоха вокалиста. Интерпретировать её – большой риск попасть под огонь брюзжания и неприятия  фанатов великой троицы

В случае с проектом “Blues And Boogie» можно сказать: классику чёрного блюза интерпретирует классик американского рока. Звучит диск поразительно свежо и энергично

Новый диск Лопеза - это то, что надо любителям блюз-рока по ту и эту сторону Атлантики. Звук увесист, сочен, и диск, что называется, "качает", свидетельствует известный сетевой обозреватель Роман "The Metal Traveler" Химич

Марция Болл посвятила свою новую работу музыкантам Аллену Туссену, «Толстяку» Домино и Баквит Зайдеко. Их влияние присутствует практически на всех записях

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
