Thunderbird Derrick Fitzgerald: Raising Awareness And Helping A Fellow Musician

The Thunderbirds - In full flight and soaring high from the 60s.
Derrick Fitzgerald (top left image), from one of Singapore 60s pop groups The Thunderbirds, has suffered a stroke. There is an effort by two young people to help raise some funds for the guitarist.

According to the Straits Times September 14th, 2009, the charity gig will be held on Wednesday, 7.00pm at the Black Coffee, Hitachi Tower, Collyer Quay, Singapore.

The Thunderbirds which was formed in 1962 has a top hit that is still being played on radio today and remembered by many Singaporeans. My Lonely Heart was at the Number 1 spot in Singapore and Malaysia in 1968. The group has also recorded many originals and covers in the 1960s.
