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!

 Dawn Lee Wakefield of the NATIONAL EXAMINER reports…

“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.

Lester Chambers, lead singer on, “THE TIME HAS COME TODAY” by the Chambers Brothers says, “If you feel moved by this outrage please share this with the world! Its TIME to tell the truth!!! HELP Me make this VIRAL so everyone pays attention to the Artist who bring joy to life… I’m about to be 72… IT’S TIME!!!”

At first I was annoyed when I got hundreds of notifications that the lead singer of THE CHAMBERS BROTHERS, Lester Chambers, had tagged my photo on Facebook. Then I read the cardboard sign (above) and wondered why he didn’t contact me sooner!

I’m facing a similar situation with getting paid for the cuts of mine that Michael Jackson recorded. It’s hard to believe that Michael’s estate earned 350 million dollars since he passed away, while I earned less than $5000, from my songs on posthumously released albums that contain some of his biggest hits!

Lester is right, only about 1% of those of us who’ve been screwed can afford to sue, like Lester I’m one of the 99% who can’t, however I have an idea.

Lester’s post got an astonishing 7,264 LIKEs, 1,416 COMMENTS, and 5,888 SHARES on FACEBOOK in the last 48 hours, and could kick start the campaign to start some “CLASS ACTION AUDITS” going!

“THE TIME HAS COME TODAY!” Please take a look at these articles and join me in our fight for justice! I have an influential readership that can move mountains. I expect to have over 2 million page views on my blog by the end of next week. https://artiewayne.wordpress.com/2011/05/14/audit-audit-audit/ AS WELL AS https://artiewayne.wordpress.com/2011/05/24/the-first-class-action-audit-against-the-universal-music-group/

HAVE YOU GOT A SIMILAR HORROR STORY ABOUT GETTING SCREWED IN THE MUSIC BUSINESS? WRITE YOUR EXPERIENCE IN TWO PARAGRAPHS OR LESS IN THE AREA FOR COMMENTS BELOW THIS ARTICLE…AND MAYBE YOU’LL FIND JUSTICE.
