Here is the message from Jeff Paris;
After the Japan tsunami in March, Terry Ilous (XYZ, Great White) and I ("a nice bloke"- Charlotte Bailey) approached the Red Cross with an idea to use music to raise money for disaster relief -- I know, it's not a revolutionary concept...but we're not Sting or Angelina Jolie. Somehow we convinced them a couple of lowly rock dogs were worth listening to. We were initially focused on Japan, but this year proved to be so catastrophe prone that we expanded to a global perspective.
It's been quite a learning curve, but everything's set up. Our organization is called "United Rockers 4 U" (UR4U). On December 12 we're releasing our single "One Family," featuring Eddie Money, Jimi Jamison, Robin McAuley (Survivor), Don Dokken (Dokken), Bobby Kimball (Toto), Paul Shortino (Rough Cutt), Michael Thompson, Ritchie Kotzen, and members of Whitesnake, Quiet Riot, Dio, Guns ‘n’ Roses and others. All these artists donated their performances to our cause. Beau Hill (Ratt, Winger, Warrant, Alice Cooper, Europe, etc.) mixed it and it's slamming. It's straight up melodic rock, and really worth having.It'll be available on iTunes, Amazon, etc. shortly.
All proceeds from the sale of "One Family" go to the Red Cross. So in order to handle some unavoidable costs (mixing, CD pressing, publicist, etc.) we're asking for donations. If you want to help, and believe me, no donation is too small, go online to unitedrockers4u.org . There's a PayPal button for contributions, and whatever you can do, we appreciate.
Terry and I are dads, and we saw clips on the news that just brought us to tears. "That could be us," we said to each other. Do you have to be Sting or Angelina Jolie to do something significant to help the afflicted? Nah!!
Thanks for taking the time to read this. Check out the website, and honestly, anything you do is awesome.
Thanks and happy holidays,
