Greg Norton, the bassist of legendary Minnesota punk band Hüsker Dü, has been diagnosed with prostate cancer.
Friends of the musician have launched a GoFundMe in his name to help pay for the unexpected medical bills. After 24 hours, the fundraiser is more than halfway to its goal of $30,000. “Unfortunately, our beloved friend Greg Norton, bass player for the legendary Hüsker Dü and UltraBomb, has just been diagnosed with prostate cancer,” the GoFundMe page reads. We can’t imagine the stress and anxiety he and his family must be going through.
“One thing that’s for sure, though, is that the cost of treatment in the United States is eye-watering,” the statement continues. “We want to help alleviate some of that pressure…Please help us by donating what you can. Let’s get Greg treated and well, back on his feet and rocking out again in no time!” Click here to check out the GoFundMe page for Norton’s medical bills.
Last year, Norton teamed up with Finny McConnell (The Mahones) and Jamie Oliver (U.K. Subs) to form a band called Ultrabomb. The trio’s debut album, Time to Burn, was released in May 2022.
