George's daughter, Gracie, has pitched in to come to her father's aid. To defray medical costs, she has begun a campaign [Putting Heads Together] to reach out to George's many cohorts, musical friends and admirers in an effort to secure donations of music items, swag and memorabilia to be included in an eBay auction for the benefit of George Grantham.
"In this day of higher and higher value for things of show biz history, this is a good chance to latch on to something cool, at a good price, for a great cause while helping someone who brought great music to so many," said John McEuen, one of the founding members of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band who has stepped in to assist in this effort to raise funds for his friend in music. "In their first L.A. gig, at the Troubadour, POCO opened for us (NGDB) and blew us away. A year later, we went looking for a singing drummer like George, the Ringo of country-rock."
Friends who have donated items include:
Timothy Schmit/Kentucky Headhunters/Scotty Moore/Steve Wariner/DJ Fontana/Don Henley/Richie Furay/Chris Hillman/Graham Nash/Orleans/John McEuen (Nitty Gritty Dirt Band)

If you have an item you would like to donate, please contact Gracie at Paradddle@aol.com /or/ firstname.lastname@example.org.
