Long-time readers may recall that we’ve posted about the trials and tribulations of the band Rogue Wave in the past on here.
As a quick recap, the band’s drummer, Pat Spurgeon, was in dire need of a kidney transplant in 2006. Working through the struggle of being a touring musician on dialysis, Pat received his kidney in 2007. In a crazy twist, the band’s former bassist, passed away in a tragic house fire in 2008 and went on to become a donor.
The band has now released a documentary called D tour that takes an inside look at Pat’s struggle for a transplant just as his career was taking off.
