GLENN HUGHES, JOHN 5, JACK RUSSELL, GINGER FISH Perform At 'Rock Against MS' Concert (Video)

John 5 (ROB ZOMBIE, MARILYN MANSON), Glenn Hughes (BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION, DEEP PURPLE), Billy Morrison (CAMP FREDDY), Ginger Fish (ROB ZOMBIE), Jack Russell (GREAT WHITE), Jeff Young (MEGADETH) and Marky Ramone (RAMONES) are among artists who came together to support longtime friend and publicist Nancy Sayle, who was struck with primary progressive MS in 2009. The Rock Against MS benefit concert was held last Wednesday (March 27) at the Whisky A Go-Go in West Hollywood, California and was hosted by Bob Coburn and Gary Moore of KLOS.

While visiting her close and dear friend as well as client, Steve Stevens and his wife Josie Stevens, Nancy informed them of this news and all the medical issues. Knowing that she would not be working as much and facing large amounts of medical bills, Stevens suggested that a benefit was in order to help her.

About multiple sclerosis: Every hour in the United States, someone is newly diagnosed with MS, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system. MS interrupts the flow of information from the brain to the body and stops people from moving. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The advancement, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with more than twice as many women as men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 2.1 million worldwide.
