Veteran Music Journalist Scott Schinder Ailing, Needs Your Help
June 22, 2016 at 12:22 PM (PT)
Veteran music writer SCOTT SCHINDER, whose work has been published in ROLLING STONE, CREEM, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY, BILLBOARD, TIME OUT N.Y., NEWSDAY, MUSICIAN, NEW MUSICAL EXPRESS and MELODY MAKER, among others, was admitted to ST. DAVID'S SOUTH AUSTIN MEDICAL CENTER last FRIDAY (JUNE 17th), suffering from a kidney related problem and, while he is in stable condition and is slowly improving, he’s not leaving any time soon.
SCHINDER has also written several music-related books and liner notes for numerous CD reissues and box sets and has contributed essays and other pieces to many other books, including all six editions of "The TROUSER PRESS Record Guide."
Like many music journalists, SCOTT is a freelancer covered under the AFFORDABLE CARE ACT, but there are many bills that are not getting paid in the interim (rent, utilities, cat food) and there are definitely going to be bills down the line from this hospital stay. The goal has been set at a reachable amount, but anything that comes in above and beyond that will certainly help SCOTT get back on his feet and ahead of the game after what hopefully will be a minor health set back.
We hope you will join us in our effort to help SCOTT get well and remove some of the financial worries that come from an unexpected and somewhat lengthy hospital stay at his GO FUND ME page here.
