Rosie Flores needs the help of her fans

Rosie Flores took a bad fall several days ago and broke her left arm.  Like many musicians, Rosie can’t afford insurance.  That’s a sad fact.  I’m not going to get all political on you, but I sure do hope the sides get together and solve the nation’s problem of unaffordable health insurance instead of fighting about it.

The immediate need, however, is to help Rosie with her medical bills.  She’ll know soon whether she will need surgery or a brace to help her heal.  For a guitarist, her arm is also part of her livelihood.  Help if you can by donating here:  Help Rosie.

Here’s a really great clip of Rosie shreddin’ on guitar.
