Funds being raised for Helix’s Daryl Gray who underwent heart surgery

Helix benefit show posterHelix bassist Daryl Gray recently underwent open heart bypass surgery, which has left him unable to work and earn income.

A Go Fund Me campaign has been started in Gray‘s name to raise funds for him. The Gofundme campaign states: “Daryl Gray has just undergone bypass surgery and is recovering. As most of you know, Daryl is a musician and makes his living entertaining. This surgery has left him unable to work for while and therefore unable to earn an income.”

Gray has served as Helix‘s bassist for about 24 years between the periods of 1984 to 2002 and from 2009 to present. He has played on some of Helix‘s best selling and known studio records including 1984’s Walkin’ The Razor’s Edge, 1985’s Long Way To Heaven and 1987’s Wild In The Streets as well as on the band’s last two studio records, 2009’s Vagabond Bones and 2014’s Bastard Of The Blues.

Helix are scheduled to play a benefit concert for Gray in London, Ontario, Canada on September 25, 2015.
