Safe to say without the New York Dolls we would not have punk and their premier architect and wonderful human being Sylvain Sylvain has been battling cancer.
In the USA that means huge bills because they don’t have a health system like ours and Syl has never made the money he should have done and is having trouble financially paying for his treatment.
Sylvain Sylvain, songwriter and original longtime member of the NY Dolls was recently diagnosed with cancer. He has been undergoing treatment that appears to be moving along successfully but has a long way to go. This fund will be of great assistance in getting him back on his feet.
I know there has been some curiosity, speculation and, yes, rumor about why I haven’t been Rampaging songs on FB or, more importantly, out on tour promoting my book “There’s No Bones in Ice Cream” and playing in a town near YOU.
First the BAD news: For about a year now, I have been battling cancer.
Then the GOOD news:I have an upcoming surgery with a great doctor that may do the TRICK. There will, however, be a somewhat long recovery period (at least a year). I have not been able to work since last year and have more surgery scheduled. I love life! As hard as life has been to me these past 2 years I want to live and I know with your love & support I’ll have the best chance that I could ever have,
