John Blackwell Jr. was just hospitalized in Japan because of bad health condition, and is now in the process of getting tested for what the doctors think may be tumors in his brain. And he and his wife Yaritza need your help for medical expenses and everything. For support, go to GoFundMe; https://www.gofundme.com/johnblackwelljr

Update: JB will be released from hospital in Japan soon and his wife is going to fly to Japan to bring him back to Florida. They still needs your support!

I met him at two drum clinics here locally and what a great drummer and a great guy. God Bless. This photo was from a Dom Famularo clinic. John was a huge Dom fan and here Dom had talked John into sitting in.

RIP Such a loss. It's sad how much bad luck had seem to stick to John in the last decade.

Sincere condolences to his family, friends and all the drummer community.
