We start this week off with one of the saddest news we’ve ever reported. Legendary guitarist/vocalist Dez Cadena, formerly of Black Flag, The Misfits, Redd Kross, DC3 and other acts, has been diagnosed with cancer. A GoFundMe page has been launched to raise money to offset Cadena’s medical bills. The page reads:
“Dez has just finished debilitating radiation treatments, and is confident he will return to active performance again within a year. So Dez has had to take a long break from touring and recording and he had no other income to pay for the quite expensive treatments and doctor’s bills. We ask you today to donate funds to help Dez’s cause, as this friendly man has given so much to the music community, and he is literally a living punk rock legend, having played on some of the classic records of the genre, and remains one of the most beloved members of the scene.”
You can go here to contribute. We here at Dying Scene wish Dez a speedy recovery.
