You may have seen the VH1 Rock Autism campaign PSAs on TV. An old school aficionado myself, I was pretty stoked to see Steven Tyler, KISS, Dee Snider (of Twisted Sister), and several other rockers who are older than my father yet still kicking ass taking on this cause! If you haven’t caught it yet, you can see their PSA, “Rock Autism,” here.

Tomorrow Rock Autism is having a Celebrity Bowl-Off at Lucky Strike Lanes in Hollywood, from 7 to 10 PM, with benefits going to three different autism charities–Act Today, the Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation for Autism, and the HollyRod Foundation. It will be hosted by Dave Navarro and Holly Robinson-Peete, and rocker bowlers will include Meat Loaf, Slash, and members of Anthrax, Great White, Ratt, Warrant, Candlebox, Lit, Cinderella, and L.A. Guns.

This is definitely something I would have sold a body part to attend when I was a teenager.

There will also be a silent auction of rock memorabilia, including signed guitars from Linkin Park and Tom Petty. Tickets are $150 and all go toward fighting autism. To get yours, visit

    I would like to know where the funding if any that has been generated by VH1 Autism. Our Support group is trying to start a non for profit status to better serve the community/members/families/caregivers and auties/aspies. We are having problems gaining the needed funding as the big companies do not see us a real needy group.
    I also sit on the board of directors, with TASC, I am a parent of a 6 year old Autistic, and actively educate as much as possible.
    Thank you for your time.

    Please see You Tube video titled: “Severely Autistic Boy Beaten by Big Government”
    It’s an eye opener. Mom takes you inside the crazy system serving autistic children/teen/adults/ and exposes some of the apathetic people we have working in our agencies. Amazing. Shocking. Sad. We need big change with less government right now. And MORE alternative therapies covered. More green treatments!!!
