If you live in the Phil Campbell area, please make it out to the screening of I’m with Phil. The screening of this latest cut of this film is to benefit Phil Campbell of La Farge, Wisconsin. AKA Big Phil.
Big Phil is a hell of a guy. He gave to the folks of Phil Campbell when he himself had no money — he just got in his van and came after he called me up after the tornado hit the town. Yet he had no money to get a hotel room for himself. Eventually someone in town put him up at their house.
Now, Phil Campbell’s second wife is battling cancer, a situation made all the more tragic when you know that Phil Campbell’s second wife died of cancer in 1997, two years after the first Phil Campbell Convention that I organized.
The town of Phil Campbell, Alabama is a special place for Big Phil. It’s so cool to know that the town will try to give back to him this week.
