News regarding Roger Nichols (Steely Dan)

Hi Luggers,

I doubt many of you who have been here a while have heard about Roger, one of the masters at recording, he who was the first to sample, and do drum replacement, and if he hadn't been around, our worlds would be much smaller than they are. Roger has pancreatic cancer, and is looking for donations to assist in the payments of his massive treatments costs...

You can find out more at:

Please help if you can, even if it's only a few $$$.

FYI I have only met Roger on a casual basis at AES, I don't really know him, so this request is being made from one music entity to my fellow creators.

Yet another reason for universal healthcare in the US. Too bad he isn't Canadian (or any of the majority of countries in the world with reasonable healthcare)...

Thanks for reading,
Thanks for posting this George,

Roger is a legend, I just made a donation. I must admit I learned more about engineering listening to his work than anything else...
