Nashville musicians come together to benefit one of their own


For nearly two decades, Billy Block has given Nashville musicians a stage to help launch their careers. But now those artists are coming to his aid after he was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer.

A benefit concert Thursday at the Hard Rock Cafe on Lower Broadway brought together an eclectic mix of Music City sound, and it was all full of love for the man so many in the music industry call a friend.

Block, a drummer and radio host, said he's never shed a tear about his condition. Rather, it's nights like this one that can bring tears to his eyes.

There are a number of benefits coming up for Billy Block over the next few months, including the "Rock for Billy Block" Monday at 5 p.m. at The Listening Room.

The Billy Block Family Fund has been set up at Wells Fargo Bank. Checks can be made payable to the "Billy Block Family Fund," and mailed to the attention of Bradley Gallimore or Danielle Lares-Bouharoun at Wells Fargo Private Bank, 3100 West End Ave., Suite 550, Nashville 37203.
