Pete LaRoca is in critical condition at Kateri Residence in the Upper West Side. His family is planning a Benefit Concert for him on Sat. Dec. 29th at St. Peter's Church, 54th & Lexington, 8 pm. Please send out the word to any drummers you know.

Thank you,
Randa Kirshbaum

I'm embarrassed to say that I know him by name only; that I haven't really listened to any of his work until now. What a great player!

My heart and prayers go out to him and his family, that he may recover and be well.

I will spread the word around. One of the greats. Pete's playing on Sonny Rollins' Village Vanguard date, Joe Henderson's Page One and his own dates as a leader, Basra and Turkish Women At The Bath, is a huge part of some of my favorite records.

oh no!!!!

this is horrible news

I knew something was up when I had lessons scheduled with him and then was made aware that Pete would not be able to fulfill the engagement

my prayers go to one of my favorite drummers and his family

you are on my mind Mr. LaRoca
