I hope it raises him lots of money. I would have loved to have been a part of it. In fact, as many of you might remember, I suggested doing it when Dr Know became ill; I also suggested doing a song with the original Cro-Mags members on his behalf. Dr Know and Darryl even reached out to John to see if that was possible, or if John and me would do a benefit show as the Cro-Mags. Clearly it is not.

Its a shame that John wouldn’t be a part of getting the real Cro-Mags back together for this cause.

I would have done it in a heartbeat for Doc and to show some unity and PMA. But, I guess John would rather continue masquerading as the Cro-Mags and get all the glory in the process, it’s a shame.

I think we all know how many people a real Cro-Mags show would attract, It really would have been the biggest show in NYHC history and for a cause like this it would have been worth it.

But either way, I hope it’s a success and at the end of the day, I hope they raise a lot of money for Doc through his GoFundMe table; and if using the name “Cro-Mags” to do so will help, then God bless it even if it is not the real band.

I hope that it helps with Dr Know’s expenses and that he makes a full recovery. And I wish I could be a part of this show, but at least my songs will be played at it.

John should start off every show he does billed as the Cro-Mags by thanking me.

He should say, “I would like to thank Harley for giving me a job, by starting this band, coming up with the name and writing all the songs that we are about to perform here tonight, Thank you.”

I can say now, with just about 100% certainty that there will never be a real Cro-Mags reunion.

If John wouldn’t do it for Doc, then it will never happen.

Please support Dr Know’s GoFundMe campaign.

He has done more for us with his music then we can ever repay.
