Biography

When it comes to Robbie Tucker, there’s no question, that he has determination. Tucker has been compared to such musical geniuses as Rufus Wainwright, Mika, Roy Orbison & Paul McCartney. Robbie Tucker has built a unique musical career, while dealing with the progressive neurological disorder, Parkinson's disease. Diagnosed at the young age of 28, Robbie began showing symptoms of the disease. Traditionally thought of as only affecting the elderly, this of course is untrue. The risk of Parkinson's disease increases with age and the general age for onset is
60-65 yrs; however, around 5-10% of people diagnosed are under the age of 45 with about 1% of those being under 30. "You know sometimes, in life we tend to get lazy. Parkinson's disease was my wake up call. Before my diagnosis I had to stop playing on stage because my voice and guitar playing had gotten so bad.”

But, Parkinson’s hasn’t stopped Tucker; presently he is organizing a yearlong series of concerts to raise both awareness for people living with Parkinson's disease & $1,000,000. Tucker has recently launched a new charitable organization called MapMusic.org. "If there’s a cure out there, you better believe I won't stop until it’s found, you have my word." Says Robbie. MapMusic.org is a non-profit organization, which uses music to increase/create awareness & raises money for people living with Parkinson's disease.

Tucker is also asking the big boys for help. He has put together a series of request websites such as, www.PaulMcCartneyRequest.com, www.OprahRequest.com,
www.MichaelJFoxRequest.com and the list doesn't stop there.
If you ask Robbie what he thinks about losing his
abilities, his reply is simple.

“I am the driver of this car, and I won't stop until I want to."
