Sound Diego - Phil Collen Interview Quote

"Cancer is such a common disease these days, [but] I was amazed, actually, at the number of people that came forward with their stories. It started with a tragic kind of thing but has turned into a very inspired, positive outcome. A guy named Murray Bolton from New Zealand ended up [winning the bid] with the guitar and came out to [California] and went to Disneyland with his grandchildren and then they all came by the house a couple of weeks ago: pretty rad."
