Bryan Raymond – a guitarist in elite local heavy band Junior Bruce – was in a very bad motorcycle accident on Oct. 12. Bandmate Tom Crowther tells me the good news is that his condition, though critical, is stable enough for surgery. The bad is that he'll need many because his body is completely shattered.

Besides a very talented musician, Bryan's a devoted father, a hell of a gardener, and just a good guy. The area music community has always been extraordinary in its support of its own in times of need, and this is definitely one of them. So please join me in sending some power, love and - if you can - some financial help his way. Donate here. If anything, at least share the donation link (https://www.gofundme.com/y56bck74). 

We're pulling for you, Bryan.
