JAMES MURPHY Says Florida Benefit Was 'A Great Success'

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 posted the following message regarding the James Murphy Benefit concert, which took place on September 6 at Venom Night Club in St. Petersburg, Florida:

"The benefit show held in St. Petersburg for me on September 6th was a great success — thank you to all who were there, both playing and watching! Special thanks to all the members of SIX FEET UNDER, DIABOLIC, THE ABSENCE, YETI, CYST… you guys all made the night one to remember. Special thanks also to the tireless promoter, Tony Anderson, who conceived, planned and executed the show with selfless determination, and who joins Doreen Harley (Indiana), Cheri Anderson (Michigan), Mark Carras (Washington), Scary Gary (California), and Chris McDermott and friends (Scotland) as among my all-time favorite people! Thanks directly to this show, I am now once again able to see an Endocrinologist and get the tests necessary to monitor my condition.

"Here is a more complete thanks list for those who helped make the show happen: Tony Anderson, Jack Rudzinski, Heather Bourgault, Liz Celona, Jill Butler, TJ Starr, Darron Saunders, Matt Mullins, Mark Mullins, Noel Eve Verge, and any others who may been overlooked... thank all very much!"
