Former Faster Pussycat Guitarist Brent Muscat Shaving His Head For Charity
February 20, 2012
Brent Muscat may be best known as the founding guitarist for Hollywood legends Faster Pussycat, or for tearing up the Vegas scene with his band Sin City Sinners, but Brent is also a Cancer survivor.
Brent announced live on Las Vegas Radio station Komp 92.3 that on March 16th he will have his head shaved in front of a live audience to stand in solidarity with kids fighting cancer, but more importantly, to raise money to find cures through the St Baldrick’s charity. The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is committed to funding the best research for kids with cancer and the top pediatric oncologists in the U.S. guide our research priorities.
This will be Team Sin City Sinners’ second year participating with St Baldrick’s. In 2011, the band’s manager Jason Green captained the team and had over 10 inches of hair shaved, raising over $3,000 for the cause.
“Last year we joined the event on short notice and the team was just me and Komp Radio DJ “Big Mex”, this year with Brent on board we are expecting increased attention and to raise much more money for the kids” said Green who will again have his head shaved at this years event.
“As a parent and cancer survivor this was something I felt I had to do” Muscat said.
Brent’s head shaving event will take place before the Sin City Sinners concert on March 16 at Club Madrid inside Sunset Station and is open to the public. To make a donation to Team Sin City Sinners in Brent’s name please visitwww.stbaldricks.org/participants/mypage/525718/2012.
