This is a great cause and if you are in L.A. I urge you to get a ticket to this show.


HOLLYWOOD, CA (September 24, 2013) – ROCK AGAINST MS returns to the Whisky A Go-Go in Hollywood with yet another amazing All-Star line up. On the heels of a spectacular sold-out show last March 27th, the Rock Stars return in support of long time friend and publicist, Nancy B. Sayle. This rock-fueled concert is to help raise awareness and funding for Sayle and her new foundation benefiting those living with MS.


This show will also be in loving memory of Penny (Maglieri) Tuttle who passed from complication from MS just days prior to the first ROCK AGAINST MS concert. Penny is the daughter of Sunset Strips legendary rock n roll giant Mario Maglieri, owner of the Whisky A Go-Go and the Rainbow Bar & Grill.


Penny’s passing affected Sayle profoundly, as she, herself is challenged with Primary Progressive MS. “Being just diagnosed in 2009, I first ignored the disease and now with it progressing I move forward doing all I can to cheat it and be positive,” explains Sayle. “Penny’s death, just within days of a concert at her family’s venue that they so graciously donated to us, really shook me. The Maglieri family are great long-time friends and I want to honor Penny and many others that have lost their lives due to this disease. We also thank the Maglieri family for all they have done for us. I really need all to know about MS. It is important that we fight and not lose hope.”


Rock stars, such as Steve Lukather, Gilby Clarke, Blasko (Ozzy), Marky Ramone, Jorgen Carlsson (Gov’t Mule), CJ Vanston (Spinal Tap), Erik Eldenius (Billy Idol), Brian Tichy, Robert Sarzo (Queensryche), Jimmy D’Anda, Nick Menza (Megadeth), Gretchen Bonaduce, Chas West (Moby Dicks/Bonham) and more will perform at ROCK AGAINST MS on October 17, 2013. They are showing support for not only Sayle, but for so many others living with MS in our own community and around the world. Many more artists will be announced in the coming weeks and a huge surprise guest is in anticipation – These artists are our MS WARRIORS!


In its finishing stages, the ROCK AGAINST MS FOUNDATION will provide services from a three (3) grant resource system, which will provide daily care, quality of life needs and emergency funding, while assisting people with multiple sclerosis to live an independent and full life. There will also be an educational grant for kids with MS as well as kids that have parent with MS that are challenged with funding for college. These grants will support the physical and emotional needs of MS patients and their families - as well as creating awareness of multiple sclerosis to the general public.

WOW!, Ace! Where's the L.A. Rock Cognicenti on this? Can't you get some more peeps on stage since it's such a good cause.

First off, I'm shocked to find out Penny has passed away. That's the 2nd very close person from the L.A. rock world to pass away on me this week. (although Penny passed earlier, I'm just hearing about this.) The other being a close friend, Bill Bartell, aka Pat Fear, from the band WHITE FLAG. R.I.P. to both of you.

Mario & the entire Maglieri family are good,decent people in a business full of douchebags, and always treated myself & Actress right. Especially when we were a Whiskey "house band". I surely will be in attendance and will call Gilby to see what else I can do.

Gretchen Bonaduce's band "Ankhsanamuhn" is always fun to hang out & dance to.. (they just play 80's cover tunes.) Her current husband & drummer Kevin Starr was in 80's L.A. Glam legends "Stars From Mars" along with my current bassist. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HWXFM_uomrg
