Mick Rock is the photographer who took many portraits of Bowie in the early 70's and has been a longtime associate of David's.
A benefit concert for Mick Rock (to defray medical costs from a recent and unexpected operation) was to be held in New York City in May.
Where: Manhattan Center, 34th Street between 7th and 8th Avenues
When: Postponed!! Will be possibly rescheduled at a later date
Time: Be early! There are lots of bands playing. Mick said the doors will probably open at around 6:30 p.m.
Who: Sugargrass, Big Mouth, Phoids, Ray Davies (Kinks fame), Iggy Pop, D-Generation, Space Hogg and Lemonheads. Other special guests may be added later...
Cost: Mick isn't sure. He thinks between $40 and $50. Proceeds will go to defray his outrageous hospital bills. Any money left over will go to Music Cares to help other music industry-related artists in similar dire situations. Since it's a benefit, the cost of the tickets are probably tax deductible.
Tickets: Can be purchased through Ticketmaster.
