helping raise money for the American Cancer Society through various
projects, one of which needs a list of rock stars who've either died
of cancer or survived it. "Rock stars" should be loosely interpreted
to mean any well-known musical celebrity.
Some cancer deaths have included:
Ray Peterson ("Tell Laura I Love Her" & "Corrina, Corrina")
Floyd Cramer (pianist)
Nicky Hopkins (pianist)
Richard Tee (pianist)
Carl Wilson ("The Beach Boys")
A cancer survivor:
Rod Stewart (survived thyroid cancer)
Even though this is a sad subject, I ask everyone's help in compiling
this list, in the hope that it'll help save future lives. Please add
to this list all the names you can think of.
