On the morning of October 5th, 2014, AGENT STEEL / ENGINE / REDEMPTION and MASTERS OF METAL guitarist Bernie Versailles suffered a brain aneurysm and was rushed to an emergency room in Southern California for an operation. While many know him as a talented guitarist, songwriter, and recording engineer, Bernie is also a loving friend, son, brother, and parent – alongside his longtime partner Soma – to two young children, Sevina & Apollo. Those who know him can attest that his personality radiates kindness, generosity, and humility.
Last week, Bernie underwent a successful craniotomy to permanently fix his aneurysm; physical therapy will follow.
Long-time friends Gary Wells & Juan Garcia wish to rally the worldwide metal community to assist Bernie’s fight in overcoming this unexpected health hurdle by launching a fundraising page on YouCaring.com. Thus far, over $5,100 have been raised.
No matter how small, donations will aid in Bernie’s rehabilitation toward a full recovery and will help his family cope with the growing medical expenses.
