A Plea For Disaster Relief

John Finberg of First Row Talent was in a hotel along Patong Beach when the tsunami hit Phuket, Thailand, December 26th.

Finberg, on his annual vacation, was on the fifth floor; the first two floors were flooded for about an hour.

The agent urges his colleagues to contribute to disaster relief; he has pledged $10,000.

He also told Pollstar that he wanted to thank those who e-mailed him to show concern.

Cellist Markus Sandlund, who performed on Brian Wilson‘s SMilE album and tour, is one of the missing in Phuket. Wilson is asking for help to find the musician.
