I'm a musician and saw this over at Harmony Central and thought I'd pass
the info along.

It seems as if hit and runs or car/cyclist accidents are reaching epidemic proportions.
Be careful out there!

The info:

Medical Donations for David Lee, guitarist for Th' Legendary Shackshakers

I received this from another mailing list I'm on. David Lee, a Gretsch artist and guitarist for Th' Legendary Shackshakers was struck by a hit & run driver and severely injured. Like many touring musicians David is uninsured so some of his closest friends have started a fund on his behalf. I am not connected in any way with receiving any of these funds, I'm simply a fan of the group, have seen them live, and am participating as a donor. Here is the message I received:

For those of you who haven't heard Th' Legendary Shackshakers guitarist David Lee was involved in a hit & run on 1/10/06 while bicycling in his hometown of Charleston, SC. He's very lucky to be alive, but obviously took a big hit, the loss of 2 front teeth, 40 stitches on a split upper lip, etc.

If you'd like to help out with medical/dental bills for another fine musician who doesn't have the luxury of insurance I know it would be much appreciated. As some of you already know Th' Legendary Shackshakers are supposed to tour again with the Reverend Horton Heat next month, talk about the best one two punch in live entertainment, there you have it!!!

Dig deep if y'all can, donations can be sent to either of the addresses listed below. Thanks for listening.
