Fans Fund Dog Surgery For Metal Star

(Radio.com) Crowdsourcing for funds has become a fairly controversial topic. But that didn't stop David Flinn, bassist of deathcore metal band Chelsea Grin, from soliciting funds via the Internet to pay for his dog's surgery.

On Monday (May 13), Flinn made a post on the Utah band's Facebook page describing his need for money to fund the surgery for his puppy Solo, which according to doctors broke three fingers and its growth plate.

"Some of you may know that most musicians dont [sic] make that much money," Flinn wrote. "The surgery is going to cost $2,300 and I have to pay it up front." Flinn went on to admit that he "[doesn't] really come from money," so funding the surgery on his own would be difficult, if not completely impossible.

"So this is where you come in," Flinn continued. "If anyone would like to help by donating any amount of money it would help greatly. If you would like to help please send money to my PayPal account. I will do everything I can to make it up to you all." more on this story
