Una vita dedicata alla lotta contro le malattie rare. Pat è famoso in tutto il mondo per la tenacia e la passione con cui si è battuto ottenendo successi straordinari nel campo della ricerca. Ha usato anche la musica negli USA ed in giro per l’Europa per raccogliere fondi e sensibilizzare più pubblico possibile. Il suo è un rock and blues autentico, ma è soprattutto una “botta” di energia e di anima, fra grandi classici ed i suoi inediti insomma ci sarà modo di ascoltare tanta buona musica, ma anche di dedicare un pensiero a chi soffre.
