Awhile ago, I posted an article and video about my longtime friend, Dub Debrie. Last night, a tribute/fundraiser was held for Dub in Portland, which got another write up:
Around 600 people attended, and the show ran over for an hour. I loved this quote from Dub:
“It's like coming to your own funeral,” he told the crowd. “People come from all over, people you haven't seen in ages. Everybody says nice things about you. And I don't even have to be dead (to experience it)!”
And there was this story:
There was no figure immediately available for how much money the event had raised through ticket sales, raffles and donations. But the spirit of the evening was typified by the auctioning of one of a couple of donated guitars: The winning bid was $3,100, and a losing bidder donated $2,000 anyway.
