Regarding MelodicRock.com, The great AOR vocalist Fergie Frederiksen is sick with Hepatitis C (HCV). After living with the disease since the 80's, it has now become very important that treatment is sought. Fergie may be off the road for a while, but he will be very active in promoting awareness of the condition.
This from Fergie's website: "Fergie has kept this for himself for decades, but did now realize that he needed not only to tell the world about it, but try to do something for the cause as well. Fergie became acutely aware of a lack of public awareness about Hepatitis C. It is for this reason Fergie created the Fergie Frederiksen Foundation for Hepatitis C with the mission to fund research, increase awareness and provide informational resources to support those and their families affected by hepatitis C.
What will happen next? In fact the foundation is setting up a special event to be held in September (25th & 26th). This will be an annual event raising funds for the foundation and it's projects. So join Fergie and friends for the first annual Fergie's Rock 2005 benefiting the Fergie Frederiksen Foundation for Hepatitis C in September.
A lot of great stars will be performing on the event, some names to be mentioned: Alex Ligertwood (Santana), Mike Reno (Loverboy), Pat Travers (Pat Travers Band), Jimi Jamison (Survivor), John Cafferty and "Tunes" (Beaver Brown Band), Joey Molland (Badfinger), Spencer Davis (The Spencer Davis Band) and Jim Peterik (The Ides Of March).
