Neurosis frontman Kelly’s wife in health alert

The friends of Neurosis frontman Scott Kelly have launched a donation appeal after his wife Sarah lost the ability to see and move as a result of an undiagnosed illness.

She’s been in hospital since March 24 after waking up with the symptoms. While her vision has returned, she’s still not able to walk, and tests are continuing.

Over $35,000 have been donated via the Kellys’ GoFundMe page to assist with medical bills.

Karrie Morton, who’s running the campaign, says: “Doctors are still not able to identify an exact diagnosis. She has begun rehabbing in the hospital, but it’s slow going.

“While most people know Scott from Neurosis, Tribes of Neurot and Corrections House, his most cherished role is that of a father and husband. As he stays close to Sarah at this time, medical bills and every day living costs are building.”

She adds: “Sarah and Scott are overwhelmed and so appreciative of your generosity. While Sarah’s spirit is strong, she’s now been in the hospital for six days. More tests are coming so please keep sending Sarah your healing thoughts.”

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
