For anyone who may not have already heard, writer Robert Palmer is
seriously ill.  Rhino has made a donation towards his medical expenses and
we encourage you to send whatever you can as well.
Former N.Y. Times music critic and author Robert Palmer is currently in the
hospital in need of a liver/kidney transplant.  Although in the care of
doctors at the Tulane University Medical Center in New Orleans for three
years where he had monthly liver function tests and blood tests and was
told he was stable, his condition kept deteriorating, then he was REFUSED
admission because he was a
FINANCIAL RISK.  So two weeks ago Jo Beth took Robert back to his home
state of Arkansas where he was admitted to the University of Arkansas
for Medical Sciences Medical Center, 4301 West Markham St., Little Rock,
AR 72205 (Room #341).  There the doctors discovered that Robert had a
chronic Kidney infection that the Tulane doctors had not discovered or threatening!   Robert's condition has improved somewhat,
and now they want to move him to either NY or Memphis for a kidney/liver

This talented writer and producer that has given so much to the American
public with his articulate and well researched pieces on the music and
musicians in our lives is only in his early fifties....he deserves an
opportunity for better health so he can continue writing and producing
(Fat Possum Records).   The family has the $10,000 needed to have him
admitted into the transplant unit, they must raise another $100,000 for
the actual transplants.

In addition to sending him your get well cards and thanking him for all
the wonderful work he's done....please find it in your hearts to send a
tax-deductible donation to:
