Legendary punk/metal crossover band D.R.I. (DIRTY ROTTEN IMBECILES) have set up a page on their web site where fans can help guitarist Spike Cassidy — who was recently diagnosed with colon cancer — and his family with medical costs. You can make a tax-deductible donation and leave a short message for Spike (optional) at this location.Cassidy underwent sugery a month ago to remove ther cancer and is currently receiving further medical treatment. As a result, the band were forced to cancel their previously announced U.S. tour, which was scheduled to kick off May 22 in Seattle, Washington. (Thanks: StAm4)
