On October 17, Rock Against MS returns to the Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood, California with yet another amazing all-star lineup. On the heels of a spectacular sold-out show last March 27, the rock stars return in support of longtime friend and publicist Nancy B. Sayle. This rock-fueled concert is to help raise awareness and funding for Sayle and her new foundation benefiting those living with MS. This show will also be in loving memory of Penny (Maglieri) Tuttle who passed from complication from MS just days prior to the first Rock Against MS concert. Penny is the daughter of Sunset Strip's legendary rock and roll giant Mario Maglieri, owner of the Whisky A Go Go and the Rainbow Bar & Grill.
Penny's passing affected Sayle profoundly, as she herself is challenged with primary progressive MS.
"Being just diagnosed in 2009, I first ignored the disease and now with it progressing, I move forward doing all I can to cheat it and be positive," explains Sayle.
"Penny's death, just within days of a concert at her family's venue that they so graciously donated to us really shook me. The Maglieri family are great longtime friends and I want to honor Penny and many others that have lost their lives due to this disease. We also thank the Maglieri family for all they have done for us.
"I really need all to know about MS. It is important that we fight and not lose hope.”
Scheduled performers at Rock Against MS on October 17:
* Steve Lukather (TOTO)
* Gilby Clarke (GUNS N' ROSES)
* Rob "Blasko" Nicholson (OZZY OSBOURNE)

They are showing support for not only Sayle, but for so many others living with MS in our own community and around the world.
Many more artists will be announced in the coming weeks and a huge surprise guest is in anticipation.
In its finishing stages, the Rock Against MS Foundation will provide services from a three (3) grant resource system, which will provide daily care, quality of life needs and emergency funding, while assisting people with multiple sclerosis to live an independent and full life. There will also be an educational grant for kids with MS as well as kids that have parent with MS that are challenged with funding for college. These grants will support the physical and emotional needs of MS patients and their families — as well as creating awareness of multiple sclerosis to the general public.
