About this same time last summer, I happened upon some YouTube videos from the old SHOCK THEATRE program that prompted a sort of quasi-love-letter/memoir about Dr. Creep.
Now as you all know, I'm deeply into bar study these days, but a little news about the Creep's recent health problems has drifted through my transom. Unfortunately, I can't be more specific than that because I just haven't been paying that much attention. Still, something tells me you can get the full scoop at the MySpace site for the Dr. Creep Benefit show.
Basically, I'm only posting this to try to spread the word about the benefit. I can't be there, but if at all possible, I think you should go. And if you can't, see if you can donate a little something to the cause. I'll be throwing in the few bucks I can afford as soon as the next paycheck comes in.
Creep was always my favorite local celebrity. And even though he's already a legend in the Miami Valley and has been for some time, I'm not ready to let the ages have him -- not yet.
No matter what, the spirit of the Creep will haunt this town forever. But the man still has good work to do. Let's keep him around as long as possible. See the show, and give what you can.
ps. Thanks to Teresa for the scan of the flier and the heads-up on this story.
