Giampino family escapes blaze

The suburban Seattle home of former Chicago rockscene mainstays Scott and Ali Giampino was destroyed by fire early Friday morning. The pair and their young son escaped unharmed. Investigators suspect arson in this and a rash of other recent housefires in the area.

Ali Giampino handles tour arrangements for approximately one million cool bands on behalf of local indie booking behemoth the Billions Corp. Scott Giampino plays drums in Cash Audio (nee Cash Money) and formerly worked as a publicist for Touch and Go Records. (Also, as you will no doubt recall, his imitators were specifically banned from Lounge Ax.)

The Billions site has info on how you can help the Giampino family in the wake of the fire.
