Keyboard great Bernie Worrell of Parliament-Funkadelic is suffering from stage 4 lung cancer and a long list of artists are coming out to help with medical expenses.
On April 4, All the Woo in the World: An All-Star Celebration of Bernie Worrell will be held at Webster Hall in New York as a presentation of the Black Rock Coalition.
Tony Pallagrosi, who is one of the advisers for the show, told the Asbury Park Press “Bernie’s a wonderful person and wonderful musician. He brought the Moog synthesizer into the world of funk.”
Playing and appearing at the show:
Fred Schneider (B-52’s)
Jerry Harrison (Talking Heads)
Leo Nocentelli (Meters)
The Woo Warriors
Screaming Headless Torsos
Paul Schaffer with Will Lee, Felicia Collins & the World’s Most Dangerous Band

Worrell, 71, is expected to attend with his wife Judie. He was recently diagnosed with the stage 4 lung cancer that has also spread to his liver.
Tickets are $100 for a meet-and-greet and $50 general admission.
