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.

Help us meet our monthly goal:
Dick Dodd, former Mouseketeer, drummer for the Belairs, Eddie & The Showmen, and later the garage band The Standells ("Dirty Water"), has passed away at age 68. It was only recently announced that Dick had stage four cancer, and a GoFundeMe support page was created.
Today, his attorney, Peggi Collins wrote on the support page:
It is with a heavy heart that I have to report that Dickie lost his battle last night. He had contracted pneumonia and just wasn't strong enough to fight it. Please remember him in your prayers and consider adding to this fund which his family desperately needs to offset the great expense of his illness.
If you can afford it, please consider contributing to the fund to help Dick's family with their expenses.
In recent years Dick was active in the surf music scene, appearing and performing at various events, notably a benefit for guitarist Eddie Bertrand. Please join SurfGuitar101 in thanking Dick Dodd for his amazing contributions to surf music.
Dick Dodd, legendary drummer for the Belairs and Eddie & The Showmen, and then later drummer and singer for The Standells, has just been diagnosed with cancer and needs our help. His attorney has created a support page where you can help him out with his looming medical bills. Please visit the Dick Dodd Support Page and give if you can. Please join SG101 in keeping Dick in our thoughts as he goes through this difficult time. We are pulling for you Dick!
