Bring Me the Horizon Members to Climb Mount Kilimanjaro in Support of Children’s Hospitals

Bring Me the Horizon Members to Climb Mount Kilimanjaro in Support of Children’s Hospitals

Bring Me the Horizon Members to Climb Mount Kilimanjaro in Support of Children's HospitalsCredit: Danny BaldwinBring Me the Horizon frontman Oli Sykes and keyboardist Jordan Fish are planning to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa. The trek will raise money for Friends of PICU, which supports pediatric intensive care units.

The pair plans to fly to Tanzania in January, and they’ll climb Kilimanjaro over eight days. The inspiration for the climb came to Fish after his newborn son, Eliot, was admitted to the PICU in Southampton, England after suffering a brain hemorrhage.

“While in hospital I decided that I would focus myself on doing something positive for the ward and trying to raise enough money to pay for a new bed for them,” says Fish. “Oli asked immediately if he could join me and help raise as much awareness for this cause as possible.”

If you’d like to donate to Fish and Sykes’ cause, you can visit JustGiving.com.

As for Eliot, Fish says his son has “a long way to go” toward a full recovery, but he’s “breathing on his own and we are seeing small improvements every day.”

“He is a little fighter and has shown amazing signs of recovery already, even at this early stage,” Fish says.

Guns N' Roses, Radiohead, RHCP & More Turned into Garbage Pail KidsCredit: Katarina BenzovaAxl Rose is back, in Garbage Pail Kids form! Trading card company Topps has announced a new line of Garbage Pail Kids stickers that show gross depictions bands like Guns N’ Roses, Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Death Cab for Cutie and Arcade Fire.

Most of the stickers are accompanied by some punny caption — the Guns N’ Roses one is titled “Gunnin’ for Rose,” and shows the members of GNR and AC/DC fighting over Axl, while the Death Cab for Cutie sticker reads “Death Cab for Frontman,” and depicts a taxi literally running over vocalist Ben Gibbard.

Other artists featured in the sticker series include Beck, The Cure and Morrissey. You can order stickers individually, or the whole set, via Topps.com.
