I am so grateful for the out pouring of love we have received from around the world. Please continue to pray for David‘s family during this difficult time. And those in critical condition. I want to personally thank Marine Lance Cpl. Patrick Dumon for his bravery in assisting me pull our Driver Jason from the wreckage and for attending to his wounds. And for helping me to secure and attend to Jane once I was able to get her free from the fire. Without his selfless act of courage I would not have been able to get them clear of the RV before it was engulfed in flames. On behalf of my band and crew I thank you.”

Russell Allen Announces “Metal For Autism” Tour Routing

Giancarlo Trotta Entertainment and Rock On Agency are proud to announce the second part of the “Metal For Autism” tour with Russell Allen (Symphony X, Adrenaline Mob, TSO) for the project Magni Animi Viri. The organizers comment:

“In the first tour edition we could buy a bus to the medical centre in Salerno. Now we want to do more, because the situation in the south of Italy is difficult and medical treatments are too expensive for the families or it’s too hard to reach a big hospital. Heroes Temporis association provides medical assistance (analysis, therapies and so on) for free for all these kids.

“Russell Allen will be keeping a workshop and after that, he will be performing a live show with support band De La Muerte. The guests will be Kobi Farhi from Orphaned Land on March 3, 4, 5, Marco Basile from DGM on February 23 and March 11, and Eldritch on March 3 and 5.”
