Ricky Byrd and Epiphone Help Sandy Victims

Last month, Ken Dashow (shown above) from Q104, New York City's premier classic rock station, auctioned off former Blackheart Ricky Byrd's brand new Epiphone Wilshire at a benefit concert that Byrd put together to aid Hurricane Sandy victims from his hometown. Ricky was the force behind some of Joan Jett and the Blackheart's greatest hits including "I Love Rock and Roll."

The Wilshire was signed by Ricky as well as pals Ian Hunter, Simon Kirke, Gary US Bonds, Michael DesBarres, Mark Stein, former Billy Joel drummer Liberty DeVito, Kasim Sulton and many others. The auctioned raised for $1,300. Way to go Ricky!
