Nancy B. Sayle is a 30 year veteran of the music industry. Her clients have ranged from Rob Zombie, Marky Ramone to YES, Steve Vai, and many others. In 2009 Nancy was diagnosed with Primary Progressive MS. Since her diagnosis she has been facing the challenges of living with a catastrophic illness which robbed her of her ability to maintain an active lifestyle. This challenge, however, lit a fire within her to raise awareness about MS and the importance of the quality of life for others. With the love and support of her family, friends and clients Nancy held the first ever Rock Against MS Concert and founded the Rock Against Multiple Sclerosis Foundation. Today Nancy is an MS warrior and advocate for living a quality life with MS.
Not long after being diagnosed with cancer and multiple sclerosis, Nancy was at friend’s Steve Stevens (Billy Idol) house sharing her prognosis when he decided after 30 years of friendship there had to be something he could do to help. Out of a love of music, entertainment and a desire to support Nancy; Rock Against MS was born. The first annual Rock Against MS benefit show came together in 2013 with 50+ rock stars taking the stage to help raise money for Nancy’s mounting medical bills. The inaugural sold out Rock Against MS show quickly turned into an annual event garnering performances by artists like Rob Zombie’s band, Rick Springfield, Taylor Hawkins and his band Chevy Metal, Marky Ramone, Glenn Hughes, Orianthi, Billy Idol, and more. Heading into its 5th year, Rock Against MS aims to raise more funding to construct and operate brick and mortar facilities which we will call Rock Houses. Our first Rock House in the planning stages, and will provide free of charge, multiple programs and opportunities designed to heal the mind, body and spirit of all those whose lives have been affected by MS.
