Alejandro Escovedo

When Alejandro Escovedo fell ill with Hepatitis C in 2003, he was unable to pay his medical bills. That is, until Steve Earle, John Cale, Lucinda Williams, and Jay Farrar decided to record Escovedo's tunes for a benefit album. That's a vote of confidence if we ever heard one – and now he's healthy enough to perform again.
