The St. Jude Rock ‘n Roll Hope Show rocks for St. Jude



    A recent concert, organized by a grandson of St. Jude founder Danny Thomas, spread the word about the hospital among Los Angeles fans of rock and roll. The St. Jude Rock ’n Roll Hope Show, created by musician Jason Thomas Gordon and Tom Carolan of Total Live, kicked off with a sold-out show July 1 at the House of Blues. The event, which featured rock icons Stone Temple Pilots, played to 1,100 fans and picked up rave reviews from music industry press. Gordon’s band, Kingsize, opened for the Stone Temple Pilots. Gordon and Carolan partnered with Live Nation to bring the concert to the House of Blues. “St. Jude is a part of my blood in the same way that music has always been. To bring them together is a great feeling,” said Gordon. “You always hear people say how music saved their life. A band or a song changed them, healed them in some way. Well, this is that expression being manifest in a very physical way. This is rock ’n roll truly saving lives.”
