Much-loved and –respected Fab T-Birds guitarist battling cancer.
By Blurt Staff
Erstwhile Fabulous Thunderbirds/Los Fabulocos member Kid Ramos has been undergoing treatment for cancer for about a year, and reports are that he’s been responding well. However, the medical bills are massive, so a fund has been established via the Delta Groove Music website .
Writes BLURT contributor Rev. Keith Gordon at his Blues.About.com blog, “Ramos isn’t out of the woods yet. Ramos is still unable to work and he’s maxed out his disability insurance. Ramos is worried that his family is going to suffer financially and that they’ll lose everything that Kid has worked so hard to build up over the past 30 years.You can help give Kid Ramos a hand, however, and get the guitarist back on his feet and on stage where he’d rather be, singing and playing the blues for all of us as he’s done so well these past three decades.
