Time To Give Back to Double O’ Soul, Jerry Miller
January 21, 2020 | By Jimmy Alvarez
As long as we can remember, certain bands play a certain place in our heart and are part of our soundtrack of our lives. For so many in the ska community and beyond, the Untouchables are one of those larger than life iconic bands.
(UBER HIT:FREE YOURSELF)
Best known for songs like Free Yourself, Wild Child, I Spy for the F.B.I., What’s Gone Wrong, Hey UT’s, Mandingo, Blackout and Lebanon; this iconic band has a lead singer that’s been part of our Ska family for years, his name is Jerry Miller.
(WHAT’S GONE WRONG)
Personally, I’ve known Jerry for many years. Both Jerry and the band have always been accommodating for any type of media requests, and they have always been professional and a supporter of the radio station and any endeavors we’ve been part of. He’s also helped other bands in getting their name out there. I felt people should know that.
(I SPY FOR THE F.B.I.)
We’ve come to hear some devastating news about Jerry’s health. Mike Sully Sullivan posted this GoFundMe page telling us about Jerry’s condition.
“With a broken heart, I am sad to say that my good friend Jerry Miller, OG Rude Boy, singer from the legendary band The Untouchables became violently ill last week. He was in excruciating pain and was rushed to the hospital where he spent days due to an acute kidney failure which can be fatal and requires intensive treatment for the rest of his life.
He is a fighter, Jerry would never complain and as many of you know, he is not one to ask for help. But I can’t imagine the stress of suddenly not having functional kidneys and having to go through dialysis three times a week for the rest of his life. On top of ambulance, hospital, medical bills & prescription costs. I know, deep down, he is not in a good place which is why I have created this Go Fund Me to help my friend out.
Through his music, Jerry has touched the lives of many people around the world and has given joy to so many including myself and I feel it’s time for us to give back.
Any donation, big or small will help Jerry get back on his feet, help pay those medical costs and keep his soul & spirit alive.
Jerry is NOT giving up on his band or throwing in the towel. He is as motivated as ever to get out there and perform but it requires doctors visits to get him treatment so he will be well enough to make future gigs. He lives and breathes the UTS music and the band will continue to 100% rock on.
Friends of Jerry and THE UNTOUCHABLES fans let’s unite and help an awesome friend out!
Any donations are gratefully appreciated and all the funds will go directly to Jerry to help with his medical expenses.
Please share and be kind, soul together, respect and thanks.”
