Eddie Spaghetti of The Supersuckers is Fighting Cancer

Bad news for everyone: Eddie Spaghetti of The Supersuckers has been diagnosed with stage 3 oropharynx cancer. This summer he will undergo surgery and treatment to fight the cancer. This completely cancels the band's planned summer European tour, and put the upcoming Supersuckers album in jeopardy. 

As you probably know, musicians don't always have the best health care providers, and don't exactly have medical leave. There's a YouCaring page set up to help Eddie's family with medical expenses and to offset the loss of income from the cancelled tour. The Supersuckers aren't exactly a top 40 act, so the majority of their income comes from touring. As of this writing, $17,000+ of the $50,000 goal has been raised to help Eddie out. If you're looking to help, head over to the YouCaring page that's been set up.

In better Supersuckers news, Eddie Vedder showed up at the band's show at the Tractor in Seattle on 6/18 to perform the Ramones' "I Believe in Miracles." You can watch YouTube user Tami Goldfadim's video below.

Get better, Eddie.
