Solinger opened a patronage account at GoFundMe last month to help pay for your treatments. He wrote: “It is with great regret that I must let everyone know what is happening to me and my health. I have been hospitalized for the last month. I have been diagnosed with liver failure. And the prognosis is not as good. As is the case with most musicians, I don’t have health insurance and it’s very difficult to get adequate care without it. “
