Sonja Kristina hasn't added a story.
I am Curved Air’s Sonja Kristina , a close friend of Jerry Goodman - the brilliant pioneering electric violinist .
We met in the early ‘70s just before John McLaughlin’s Maharvishnu Orchestra was formed.
Over the last year Jerry has been in severe pain due to trapped nerves in both hands and elbows. As a result he has been unable to play his violin.
It is so hard for him to not be able to practice and perform .
After much investigation and advice he has embarked on a series of surgeries to free the nerves . With your help he is also exploring other therapies to ease the pain and restore flexibility .
He has had surgery on one arm . However that surgery needs to be redone. His pain has increased - the nerve has not settled .
He will be operated on again in April . The other arm will be treated six months later when the first arm has settled.
Jerry also discovered that his beloved little companion dog Mikki urgently needed a tumour removed . This has been done this month and she is doing well . The results of the biopsy have not yet returned.
We need to raise money for Jerry to cover his treatment, medical bills and care, and to survive financially during his recovery .
Once this difficult time is over he has shows to play and new music to record .
Goodman is simply one of the most unique and explosive talents the rock world has ever seen: a violin player trained in classical music with an ear for jazz and the attitude of a true rock n’ roller!
Your donations go directly to Jerry.
We are keeping all informed of progress .
Jerry sends much love and appreciation for your generosity and support. His aim is to to regain painfree mobility to create his best music for you .
