IT’S BEEN OVER A MONTH SINCE I HAD MY LAST PRP INJECTION WHICH I CAN’T AFFORD AND I’M GETTING WEAKER EVERY DAY, BUT I HAVEN’T GIVEN UP HOPE. (CLICK ONTO STORY) https://artiewayne.wordpress.com/2014/01/30/good-news-and-bad-news/
CURRENTLY I CAN’T WALK OR USE MY HANDS EXCEPT FOR TWO FINGERS WHICH I USE TO TYPE. I’VE BEEN LIVING FOR THE LAST NINE MONTHS AT THE PREMIER CARE CENTER IN PALM SPRINGS WHERE I’M WELL CARED FOR 24 HOURS UNFORTUNATELY I’M TWO MONTHS BEHIND IN MY RENT AND DON’T EXPECT ANY SONGWRITING OR PUBLISHING ROYALTIES UNTIL MY ADVANCES ARE EARNED BACK.
THANK GOD I’M STARTING TO BE ABLE TO PAINT CLOTHING AGAIN…BETTER THAN EVER! http://artiewayne.wordpress.com/2014/04/03/my-handpainted-creations/
I’M TRYING TO LOCATE SOME OF MY CELEBRITY CLIENTS INCLUDING ROBERT DOWNEY, JR. AND SARAH JESSICA PARKER WHO COULD EASILY AFFORD MY CREATIONS. I ALSO PLAN TO PUT THEM UP ON E-BAY THIS WEEK
I HAVE TO SUSPEND TEACHING DAILY EXERCISE CLASS AND WEEKLY PAINTING SESSIONS TO PATIENTS UNTIL I’M FEELING BETTER. I’VE APPLIED TO MUSIC CARES THE CHARITABLE ARM OF NARAS (WHO GIVES OUT THE GRAMMYS) FOR EMERGENCY FINANCIAL AID.
PLEASE KEEP ME IN YOUR THOUGHTS AND YOUR PRAYERS.
THANKS AND REGARDS, ARTIE

“In early 1964, the Beatles are making their mark on the world. Even Walter, my labrador retriever, is a fan. Every time the intro to “I Feel Fine” comes on the radio, Walter jumps up on me, and I have to dance him around the room!
I’m not only excited about the Beatles coming to play Carnegie Hall, but also because there’s a 3-foot Liberty Records publicity picture of me in photographer James Kreigsman’s permanent display case outside the venue, touting me as the artist of the month.
I buy 4 tickets for the second row, a few weeks in advance of the concert, for a ridiculously high price of $40 — $10 each! I invite Ed Silvers and his wife Maryanne, to the concert, to repay them for all the kindness they’ve shown me. I also ask Jemela, the inspiration behind “Midnight Mary” to be my date, and to bring her camera. They all laugh and are surprised to see my publicity photo while we’re waiting on line. Jemela wants to take a picture of it, but I say we’ll have plenty of time to do that after the show.
Even before the concert begins, there’s a restless rumble in the crowd, the kind of reaction that usually precedes a revolution!
As John, Paul, George, and Ringo make their way through the fans who are seated on stage, including NYC Mayor Wagner and his family, thousands of flashbulbs go off at the same time! By the time they plug their guitars into their Vox amps, everyone in Carnegie Hall is standing. I look around and see thousands of people experiencing a musical orgasm, simultaneously releasing themselves from the repression of the 50s, and embracing the promise of the 60s!
I’ve never seen an audience react to a band like I witness tonight. Although Carnegie Hall has some of the best acoustics in the world I can’t hear one word over the constant roar of the crowd. Fortunately, I’m close enough to read their lips so I can tell what song they’re singing. By the end of the night, I’m totally part of the mayhem, as I stand on my seat screaming, “I Want To Hold Your Hand,!”
After the show, a reporter from the Daily News comes over to me and asks, “Aren’t you a little old to be acting like this?” I say, “It’s the Beatles, man! It’s the bloody BEATLES!” When he asks my name, I say,”Ed Silvers.”
After the show, we all forget about taking pictures of my display, and go for a snack at the Russian Tea Room. The next morning, when I pass the display case on the way to Liberty Records, it’s completely covered in lipstick and magic marker with messages for Paul and Ringo. Oh well, at least I can say I made one brief appearance in my lifetime, at Carnegie Hall.”

I AM WRITING THIS POST WITH TEARS IN MY EYES. AFTER BEING UNABLE TO WALK OR USE MY HANDS FOR OVER A YEAR, YESTERDAY I GOT SOME GOOD NEWS AND BAD NEWS …THE GOOD NEWS IS FROM MY DOCTOR WHO SAYS THAT AFTER A FEW MORE PRP INJECTIONS I COULD BE WALKING AGAIN! THE BAD NEWS IS THAT MEDICARE REFUSES TO PAY FOR MY $800.00 INJECTIONS!
AFTER MOVING INTO THE ASSISTED LIVING PREMIER CARE FACILITY IN PALM SPRINGS, CA NINE MONTHS AGO,MY 24 HOUR CARE IS COSTING ME $75000 A YEAR. ALTHOUGH MEDICARE AND MEDICAL PAY MOST OF THE BILLS I HAVE TO PAY MY SHARE WHICH INCLUDES ALL OF MY SOCIAL SECURITY CHECK AND ALL OF MY ROYALTIES, LEAVING ME ABOUT $35 A MONTH, HOWEVER INTENSE PHYSICAL THERAPY AND WORKING WITH ACTIVITIES DIRECTOR BLAIRE DEWAR 2 WEEKS AGO I STARTED TO USE MY RIGHT HAND AND BEGAN TO PAINT AGAIN GIVING ME A CHANCE TO GET BACK ON MY FEET AGAIN!

After I had to be rescued from a nursing home in Desert Hot Springs, Ca., where I was drugged in order for them to seize my assets I moved into a small studio apartment in Palm Springs. When I was no longer able to walk or use my hands, I reluctantly moved into the Premium Care Center in Palm Springs, where I happily was looked after with kindness and compassion 24 hours a day. It wasn’t long before I became productive again!
I’m happy to say that my FACEBOOK friends and readers of my blog ARTIE WAYNE ON THE WEB have donated 227 DVDS to Premier care including classics like, “WHITE CHRISTMAS” AND “CASABLANCA” to current box office smashes, “HUNGER GAMES” AND “IRON MAN 3”
I also help to conduct daily exercise classes and teach art classes twice a week, showing residents how to paint shirts, which I hope we’ll sell at the Palm Springs street fair. Up until now I’ve been paying for all the t-shirts and paint myself which I no longer can afford able to do. If you’d like to make a donation to keep this program going please click here http://artiewayne.wordpress.com/2013/11/30/how-to-donate-paint-and-t-shirts/
