Dr. Know, known to many (myself being one) as the indisputable inventor of Hard Core, has done a lot for me over the past 30 years. He lent his name and production skills to my first album: Token Entry's "From Beneath the Streets" and had us open for the Bad Brains at Rock Hotel at the Ritz when we were still nothing. That gig, being one of the most memorable gigs in NYHC history, put Token Entry on the map. He took Black Train Jack on tour with the Bad Brains, which put that band on the map. And then he agreed to do this poster with me in 2012, my first to sell out in minutes, and put Hellgate Industries on the map.

As many of you know, Gary Miller (aka Dr. Know or Doc), guitarist of the Legendary Washington DC punk band Bad Brains, suffered cardiac arrest in early November last year. His condition quickly progressed to multiple organ failure, and he was on life support for almost 2 weeks. At the time, his doctors gave him a 5% chance of survival. But by the power of PMA, LOVE and FAMILY, he was able to pull through and survive.

He spent nearly three months in the hospital, until he was finally able to be transferred to a medical rehabilitation facility where he is getting the proper physical therapy and treatment that he needs to make a full recovery. In medical rehab, he continues to make incredible progress every day. Doc and his loved ones are now confident that he will make a full recovery and continue to touch our lives with his incredible music, kindness, and positivity.

if you'd like to own this poster, pick one up while you can at its original price, (and not pay through the nose on ebay), and help Doc at the same time. If you're not interested in the poster but would like to help, go here:
