Ive collected a lot of guitar picks and my husband got one of Neil Youngs drummers sticks.For 22 years, Malehorn has suffered symptoms of MS, defined by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society as a chronic, unpredictable neurological disease that affects the central nervous system. The disease is not considered fatal, however there is no cure.
