Tuck: You occasionally notice such bands. Often it turns out that FB just won't admit they're on FB. Or that they haven't admitted they're a band yet.

I went by to see Eddie yesterday. He is slowly improving. He is able to stand without assistance for very brief periods. He is very appreciative of the get well wishes, cards and letters. You may send get well wishes to:

Eddie Bertrand
C/O The Palmcrest Grand
3501 Cedar Ave
Long Beach, Ca 90807

You may donate to Eddie by going to:

Any chance that he may be able to attend?

It is Eddie's wish to attend the event and be there for every second of the event if his condition permits. I'd say there is a 99% chance he will be there.
I just want to emphasize how important I think it is to attend and do this for Eddie. I think this will be a tremendous boost for him both physically and psychologically.

Does anyone have any pictures of Eddie Bertrand that they can email me? We are looking for some high quality digital images suitable for being blown up to poster size. Please email me at surfcitykahuna@yahoo.com.

reminder,
this show is still up for listening. go to link below.
thanks

Just got word from a close friend of Eddie's.
and they are going to try to have him there for a few hours early in the day.

so if you want to see him, wish him well,
and buy some of his Merch.
t-shirts, hats, posters.
get there early.

Jeff(btd)

Jeff(bigtikidude)

Eddie has merch? Cool! I've been wanting an Eddie and The Showman shirt.

"You can't tell where you're going if you don't know where you've been"

Yep,
bring tons of cash.
there will be a lot of things for sale,
and for raffle at the Benefit show.

Jeff(btd)

Jeff(bigtikidude)

a reminder for anyone that is coming to the show,
I have a feeling its going to sell out,
so please please please get there early to make sure you get in.
noon to 1 pm is suggested.
we have 250 tix for sale at the door.

if you are coming from another state,
please e-mail me with you full name, and if you have a guest.
and I will put you on a reserve list to make sure you get in.
You still have to pay 20 bucks of course,
but this is a RSVP for a ticket since you are coming from far away.

thanks

Check out this killer pic from Randy Nauert on facebook.

Mike Mills on drums, Larry Carlton and Rob Edwards backing Eddie with Bob Knight on sax and vocals.

look at Eddies guitar - it's the custom charcoal metal-flake one that he talks about asking Fender to build for him. This is the first color pic I've seen of it.

Steve Irvin Surfboards and The Eliminators have donated this fantastic 9' longboard. It will be available in the raffle or silent auction. The board will be signed by The Eliminators and hopefully Eddie. A huge thank you to Steve Irvin Surfboards for their generosity.

Please dont be shy to share your stuff I love new songs!

Very Sad News,
I had heard the same by word of mouth.
I wish there was more we could do for Eddie.

Jeff(bigtikidude)

I wonder if Eddie's a candidate for a liver transplant?

I heard that is not an option.
No
