    Story

    Great story by Steve Lopez from LA Times, about a great American, 86 year old Itsvan "Steve" Hideg. Immigrated from Hungary after WWll, fulfilled his life's passion and become a jazz musician, drummer, bandleader. Not a gold rush for everyone in Cali, now living in LA, $1000/mth apartment on $900 /mth SS. Plays little gigs in LA, dressed to the nines, smile on his face, not one complaint. I can't do this justice, please read Steve Lopez' article/watch Francine Orr's video.

    Imagine what just a couple of hundred dollars a month would do for this guy. Thanks for any (and I mean any) help. Tim Lawler.

    I and SF (brother Bill and I visited Steve and the band on Fri night). Great night, huge turn-out for Steve. Phillip Williams and his band really put on a show, including Gary Bivona and three other horns masters. Three hour show at Callender's Grill, a great time was had by all.

    Couple of super fans showed up including Howard Brodwin who had Steve sign his "Super Drummers" skin, which included royalty of the drum world (and now Steve). Also another great fan presented Steve with a beautiful framed version of the LA Times article. Francine Orr (LA Times Photographer) who helped spearhead this whole thing (and took those great photos and video) was also on hand for the celebration, plus Meals on Wheels (also part of the team).

    I tried to load some pics on here as well as some vids I took (have included some links to the vids on YouTube). Steve is a rock star down there; extremely grateful and a very happy man. I'm happy to be a FOB now... Everyone who has donated or will donate should have a big smile on their face. Was a whirlwind weekend, plus Mayweather fight at a great LA sports bar on Sat; I'm beat; but happy. Thanks to all again, mission accomplished... :) Again, if doable, maybe visit here from time to time, add $5 here and there, spread the word... and a remember,

      As I stated earlier, Phillip Williams and his band (Steve, drummer), not playing this Friday at Callender's Grill on Wilshire in LA (closed for renovations); but will definitely be playing next Fri 8/25. My brother Bill and I are heading down to catch him. Would welcome the chance to meet any of you. That's it for now. As I mentioned, stop by every once and a while, check the account, drop in $5-10 if doable. Actually, the way he's going, Steve may set up a JUST GIVING account format us and fund it..
