ASTONISHING FACEBOOK PLEA, RAISES ALMOST $10,000 IN 24 HOURS FOR LESTER CHAMBERS “TIME HAS COME TODAY” WHO NEVER RECEIVED ROYALTIES FOR HIS CLASSIC HIT!

“For classic rock musician Lester Chambers, it only took 24 hours and one picture posted on Facebook to raise almost $10,000 to help a beloved, but almost overlooked, musician with greatly needed funds for living expenses thanks to a nonprofit organization that exists to help musicians across the country.

After just 24 hours of the post going viral across Facebook, Twitter, and blogs, in an exclusive interview today, Rob Max, Executive Director of the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund, shared that Lester’s fund received close to $10,000 in just one day, which will go directly to help Chambers with his living and medical expenses.

Max noted that the donations came in from “around the world, includingAustralia,Japan,Germany, theUnited Kingdom,Canada, and theUnited States.” Several key figures well known in the music world made Lester Chambers’ cause their own, and made early and repeated recent donations to his fund as well. Max said, “We received an e-mail from Yoko Ono’s office this morning, and they were glad to see that the word was getting out and hoped that Lester’s cause would get more attention now” that the message was spreading via Facebook and social media.

    It’s great to know there are still other kind people in the world.(not just you, Artie.)

  2. Hunter George Says:

    This is a good start on some emergency help. The fact remains that Lester, Artie and a lot of others must be paid what they are owed.


  3. Congrads Lester………….your persistance has paid off. My Canadian r&b band “MANDALA” played with you with The Chambers Broths. at “Steve Paul’s The Scene” in New York back in the mid 60s. You guys were great.

    Blessings
