JULIE KATHAN We Care Benefit Concert & Auction - Be A Part Of Rock The Love
SEATTLE MUSIC COMMUNITY JOIN FORCES TO HELP A WOMAN WITH TERMINAL BRAIN CANCER --SEATTLE, WASHINGTON (March 23, 2012) --- The Pacific Northwest Music community announces today that tickets will go on sale for the Julie Kathan, “We Care Benefit Concert and Auction… Be a part of rock the love!” Tickets are available on-line for this historic music event and auction at www.ticketmaster.com. Proceeds from the concert and auction – to be held in Tacoma Washington at the Temple Theater, on April 29, 2012 at 4:30PM – will provide support for Julie Kathan in the fight for her life.
About the Concert Legendary musicians will join together to celebrate Julie’s life and highlight her struggles living with Glioblastoma Multiforme – an aggressive and terminal brain cancer. Spike and The Impalers (Bob Rivers & Spike O'Neill - KJR 95.7 FM), Kaci (Q-13 FOX), Pamela Moore (Queensryche), Randy Piper (W.A.S.P), Heart By Heart (Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Nominees 2012 & Original MEN of HEART Steve Fossen, Howard Leese, Michael Derosier, Roger Fisher with Somar Macek on vocals), Sir Mix A-Lot, Rail, Outtasite, Magic Bus, Fabulous Johnsons, Michael Johnson (George Lynch), Jeff Kathan and Lynn Sorensen (Paul Rodgers, Sir Mix-A-Lot), Marino Correia, Caspian Coberly (Young Guitar virtuoso), ARNY Bailey and more TBA.
About the Auction Legendary musicians donate instruments, services, music lessons, and autographed memorabilia. Established businesses and retail brands in the community donate artwork, jewelry, services, food, gift certificates and much more. Over 100 items will be offered for sale in a public auction.
About Julie Kathan www.juliekathan.org In early September 2011, Julie Kathan seemed like a typical, healthy 53-year-old woman. But she wasn’t. She was living with Glioblastoma Multiforme – an aggressive and terminal brain cancer. By late September, she was experiencing mental blurriness. After a trip to the emergency room and emergency surgery, a cancerous tumor was revealed. She was given less than a year to live.
Julie has been married to Jeff Kathan for almost 24 years. Together, they have 2 children - Brittni, 23, and Dayna, 21. Julie also helped raise Jeff’s oldest daughter, Brandee, 29.
Just like with so many of us, the past few years have been an extreme financial strain. The Kathans were forced to file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy last year. On top of having to cope with the emotional trauma that comes with this prognosis, the Kathan family now faces a financial emergency due to Julie’s astronomical medical bills.
Luckily, the Kathans have an incredible support system of family and friends who would like to help. They have set up this website for donations to offset the cost of Julie’s medical bills. If you would like to help, it’s easy to do. The Kathan family would like everyone to know the support they’ve received is truly touching, and they are forever grateful. Julie is in the fight of her life, but she’s loved by so many. Let’s join together and make her fight a little easier. Thank you!
Additional Details Full disclosure: Unfortunately because all of the proceeds go to one individual there is no charitable tax deduction. Silent and Live Auction items: Even if you pay above the fair market value there is no charitable deduction.
Supported by Temple Theater, Morgan Sound, Digital Dream Development, Kip Toner Benefit Auctions, Greg Kalamar, AVR Production Services, Bryan Olson, Terry Divyak and Bill Cherrington.

RANDY PIPER Interview with Rock Show Magazine
Let me start out by saying, Randy, thanks for the first W.A.S.P. albums, which I think are the best of the W.A.S.P. collection. Great guitar work on those records! “I Wanna Be Somebody,” “Love Machine,” “The Flame,” “Blind In Texas,” and “Wild Child” are some great songs! And let’s not forget that classic love song, “Animal (F*** Like A Beast). Once again, thank you.
Donnie Tranchina: So Randy, how has life after W.A.S.P. been? What are some of the other projects you’ve been involved in?
Randy Piper: Life is good - I’m really happy right now. I’ve traveled quite a bit since then, lived in a few different places, from LA to Florida, to the Midwest and Las Vegas and more. I like to go somewhere for a while, experience it, and then move on. I get bored if I stay too long anywhere, but I always love to travel.
Donnie Tranchina: Did you guys know when you were recording the first W.A.S.P. album, that it was going to blow so many people away?
Randy Piper: I think when you’re that close to it, and doing it every day, it’s not that big a surprise. You’re striving for it every day, day in and day out – it’s not like being on the other side when you just heard it the first time. In that respect, I’m really happy it’s done so well and had a lasting power. Thirty years later there’s a whole new generation listening and liking the music. It’s pretty cool. I’m glad to be part of it - thankful to be part of it.
Donnie Tranchina: From the first time I heard “I Wanna Be Somebody,” I remember saying to myself, “I like this; I like this a lot… great songs.” Are you still close with Blackie and Chris?
Randy Piper: The last time I saw Blackie was in Cincinnati, and he looked good and sounded great. Chris has worked with me on a couple of projects . . . MORE!
