JAMES MURPHY Keeps Spirits Up, Needs Your Help

Former TESTAMENT/DEATH guitarist James Murphy, who is currently receiving treatment for a massive brain tumor with which he was diagnosed in August 2001, has issued the following update on his condition and current/upcoming activities:

"I have been doing good, playing a lot. And staying busy helping a friend's band in NY... I may even do some shows with them band soon. It will be a cool way to break myself back into playing live.. Watch my web site for details... There were be some updates very soon regarding all these activities. Work on writing the [second] DISINCARNATE [album] is proceeding slowly but surely... It sounds like it is going to be a killer judging by what I have come up with so far…

Up for grabs is a bunch of killer metal vinyl LPs, check the out the list and links to the auctions below.. If you're interested move fast because I think there are only 2 days left on all them...
