Inspiration: Max Maffia “On the Road.” 2005. Anywhere in the World! Daybox Records. | Length: 3:12; Musical Genre: Ambient Guitar
A few years ago when I underwent radiation treatments as part of my journey with cancer, I created a sound track on my iPod to support my healing. This image is the sound of a single harmonic guitar chord that I visualized as cutting a slice off my tumor and making that slice explode and disappear with the radiation treatments. In October 2013, I had the greatest pleasure to finally meet the composer/guitarist, Max Maffia in his beautiful home city of Salerno, Italy. I cherish the memory of the concert Max organized in my honor, in a Salerno art gallery with his entire band, and 50 of his dearest family and friends. I finally got to hear a live version of the song that supported my healing.
One thought on “Curing Cancer: On the Road – Inspired by Max Maffia (2013)”
“If music be the cure for cancer, play on (Max),
Give us excess of it; that surfeiting,
All tumours may sicken, and so die.”
(I get by with a little help from Bill the Spearshaker)
