Duff McKagan Joins Make-A-Wish To Make Boy's Dream Come True
The Make-A-Wish foundation teamed up with Duff McKagan to help make a cancer-stricken boy's rock dream come true. NWCN Seattle reports 13-year-old Simone Capelli headlined Seattle's Hard Rock Café on Tuesday with some help from McKagan and local band Rewind. "Tonight is about making him feel like a rock star," said Wish Manager, Jessie Elenbaas. Make-A-Wish is an international foundation, and the branch in Italy called on Make-A-Wish in Seattle to help create this special night, according to Elenbaas. The Make-a-Wish foundation took notice of Capelli because of his battle with Osteogenesis Imperfecta, also known as Brittle Bone Disease. "He is very fragile right now, but his prognosis is good. He is getting better," said Elenbaas. "I hope this night helps cushion what he's been going through." "Simone is just a cool kid, he is cooler than most," said McKagan, former bassist for Guns N' Roses. "It's not about me or any grown ups."
