Oh’s Industrial Strength Rock n’ Roll Cancer Auction for Richard Cranor
On December 11, 2009, I rounded up memorabilia from the biggest names in rock, industrial and electronic music to help my BFF Richard Cranor with his cancer treatments. Lee Tillman who got the venue, Kristine of Seattle’s Sinister Records, Paul Alleinikoff of C-89, Brad for the press release, the Cupcake Girls (Kelly, Jules, Kristyne & Carla) and an incredible logo design by Seattle’s own Jordan Cayabyab, all chipped in to make this an unforgettable auction in Seattle!Some of my most unforgettable worldwide encounters in collecting these items included meeting with Depeche Mode backstage in Madrid, reconnecting with graphic designer extraordinaire Jordan Cayabyab, getting a look at Maryanne Bilham and Robert Knight’s photo archive, and meeting Ogre of Skinny Puppy backstage at Mandalay Bay in Vegas. The night ended with the reunion of my old goth band, The Endless Still with Tristan. The players were Jyri Glynn, Fish and Lee Tillman of The Sins.
