John Greene - keyboardist of Bay Area Phish Tribute Chum, provider of "John's Special Tape" (containing the Gamehendge CD-ROM footage), and one of the first users to join the PhishNet - is fighting cancer ... again. His sons Floyd and Orion are raising funds in his honor for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Please consider donating towards their $50K goal to aid scientific research for treatment of these hard-to-treat cancers - you can read more about their story and donate here:

Floyd & Orion's Daddy will KIA Again!! (

Today, October 6th, is actually JG's birthday - when asked if there was anything special he wanted from his friends, he said all he wants is the Eagles to beat the Panthers this weekend and for his friends to donate to Floyd and Orion's fundraiser! You can follow John's treatment and recovery on his blog here:

If you liked this blog post, one way you could "like" it is to make a donation to The Mockingbird Foundation, the sponsor of Support music education for children, and you just might change the world.

SporkFan I can't believe you guys didn't mention that JG was in yeP! - a band that was epically huge for some of us in New England in the 90's. I saw the Disco Biscuits open up for them at the Iron Horse in Northampton in 97.
Donated. Stay strong JG!
