Rockers Unite to Help Memphis Legend Jim Dickinson With Benefit


John Hiatt, Jimmy Davis, Sid Selvidge with Jimmy Crosthwait, Amy LaVere, Shannon McNally and North Mississippi Allstars will hit the stage on August 8th at a benefit to raise money for Memphis legend Jim Dickinson. Dickinson — a songwriter, producer and session player who sat in with the Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan and helmed albums for the Replacements and Big Star — underwent triple-bypass surgery in June. In an attempt to help defray the cost of his mounting medical bills, the artists are uniting at Memphis' Peabody Hotel Skyway for a very special show. Tickets to the event cost $125, and donations can also be made via the Paypal address
