Little Feat drummer Richie Hayward has been diagnosed with liver cancer, and in the coming year, he will have to undergo many costly treatments and eventually a liver transplant. Hayward's illness has forced him to take an indefinite leave of absence from the band that has been such a huge part of his life for almost 40 years. As a consequence, he is receiving no income, and he has no health insurance.

To help ease Hayward's financial burden, there will be a benefit concert on Sunday, October 4, to help raise much needed money for Hayward and his family. The concert will be held at:

The Canyon Club
28912 Roadside Drive
Agoura Hills, CA 91301-3304

Doors open at 5 p.m. Music starts at 5:30 p.m. and will continue through the night.

Tickets are $20 for general admission and $50 for preferred VIP seating. A special "Richie Hayward" drum kit from Drum Workshop will be auctioned off, and there will more rare, collectible items up for bid, as well as raffle drawings throughout the night. Commemorative T-shirts will be available for sale.

Companies that are already involved include Drum Workshop, Sabian, Zildjian, Pearl, Gretsch, Yamaha, Tama, Mapex, ddrum, Guitar Center, Modern Drummer magazine, Drum! magazine, LA Weekly and Southland Blues Magazine; more will be announced.

For more information, or to donate any items for either the auctions or the raffles, contact the organizers via e-mail—Bruce Barber at or Leslie Butts at, or visit
