SUDDENLY BILL MURRAY IS “MR NICE GUY”
Bill Murray has often been dismissed as a grouchy old guy – and indeed he has his moments. But he was a real hero last weekend in Las Vegas for a friend in need. Back in the 1970’s Bill and chef Kerry Simon worked at a Little Caesar’s pizza parlor in Chicago. They both found success – Bill as a comic on Saturday Night Live and Kerry worked his way up to head chef at The Plaza hotel In the 90’s. That’s when we met him – he was handsome and a major celebrity in New York. We’re sorry to hear that Kerry is now battling an incurable condition called Multiple Systems Atrophy (MSA) and he held a big fund-raiser to Fight MSA in Las Vegas. His old friend Bill Murray showed up and couldn’t do enough – he entertained and socialized and posed for photos with everyone. Review Journal reporter Norm Clarke couldn’t stop raving about him. Bill helped Kerry raise $550,000 for MSA.
