Longtime Jefferson Starship guitarist Slick Aguilar reportedly is recovering after undergoing a liver transplant earlier this week. According to a message posted Wednesday on the veteran rocker's official Facebook page, the operation "was a tough surgery, but, so far so good."
Aguilar revealed last fall that he needed a new liver after discovering that he was suffering from hepatitis C. A benefit concert to help raise money for the guitarist's medical expenses was held in San Francisco this past February that featured performances by David Crosby , former Jefferson Airplane /Jefferson Starship singer Marty Balin and current Jefferson Starship members, Country Joe McDonald , and Big Brother and the Holding Company .
For fans who still want to help Aguilar pay his medical bills, donations are being accepted at his official website . Depending on how much money you contribute, perks include various signed pieces of memorabilia. In addition, a number of collectible items are being auctioned on eBay to raise money for Slick, including a drumhead and photos autographed by Crosby, Balin, Aguilar and many other stars who participated in the benefit show.
