There is also a MySpace page, which I will admit does not get a lot of attention. Now thirdstage.ca has a presence on Facebook.

Cosmos Perform for Organ Donor Awareness
Saturday, May 21, 2011

Fran and Anton Cosmo will be performing to help raise awareness for organ donation.

The concert, which will be held at The Stage on 6th Street in Austin, is to help raise awareness of organ donation and raise funds for Austin booking agent Tammy Miranda. Tammy has an autoimmune condition that causes liver failure. She has about a year to live. Tammy doesn't qualify for Medicaid and cannot get insurance.

Fran knows the importance of organ donation; his brother Ralph was saved with a double lung transplant. Fran has said "My brother Ralph had less than a month to live, but then had a double lung transplant! Now he is doing GREAT. I know in my heart that this is all going to turn out just as well for Tammy, I can feel it!"

Tammy Miranda is forming a foundation to raise funds for organ transplants.

You can buy tickets or make a donation by going to teamtammymiranda.com

Rocker ordered to turn over 1,000-plus e-mails in suit
Friday, April 29, 2011

By Joe Dwinell
Boston Herald

An Appeals Court justice has backed a decision issued by Superior Court Judge John C. Cratsley ordering rocker Tom Scholz, the founder of the band Boston, to turn over more than 1,000 e-mails to and from his "business team."

Under that order, issued by Cratsley in January, Scholz was required to produce e-mails to and from his publicist, manager, wife and others whom he claimed were his "advisers" that he had withheld as "privileged" as part of his lawsuit against the Herald.

Cratsley is presiding over the case.

Scholz's legal team fought against the release of the e-mails — including appealing the decision to a single justice of the state Appeals Court.

Scholz's lawyers argued to the Appeals Court that the Herald "painfully" misunderstood the law and that their client could shield communications, including e-mails, sent or received by non-employees whom he characterized as part of his "business team."

However, state Appeals Court Justice Cynthia J. Cohen disagreed, ruling that "the judge committed no legal error or abuse of discretion in ruling that the privilege did not apply" and that the e-mails had to be turned over by Scholz to the Herald's lawyers.

Cohen ruled Wednesday that the requirements of the attorney-client privilege were not met by Scholz.
