Tony’s Story
Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.


After being diagnosed with cancer in March, Tony started what was going to be a 6-month round of chemo. He couldn't eat, and together with the chemo, he became very weak. While in ICU, Tony made the decision to come home with hospice care and be surrounded by family and friends.

Just to be clear, there's a link that says, "Show your love and support for Tony by making a donation to keep his site running" or something like that. This would not be a donation for Tony or his family, it is a donation to this website, which offers this free service. 

So if you decide to make a donation, please know it is for this website, and not to any charity or beneficiary that Tony had a say in. Thanks.
Can you help power Tony’s site?

A $30 donation powers a site like Tony’s for one month. Help keep CaringBridge online for them and for you.

Tony, thank you for defying genres and reinventing old ones with your brother and colleagues. Meeting you, Chip, Jim, and Alejandro at the bunkhouse on Lafayette enriched my life and expanded my mind. I've enjoyed your music at every stage of your career. All good wishes, Johnny Rat X.

Hi Tony, just wanted to let you know that for a couple years now, I've been going to a predominately African American church down in the "hood" near LAX and I also wanted to let you know that they prayed for you last night and will continue to pray for you! Trust in the Lord with all your heart and don't rely on your own understanding! Proverbs 3:5

Dear Kinman Family, You are in our thoughts, prayers, and hearts, many blessings always!   Dear Tony,  Thank you for everything!  Your music has given so many people energy and hope!  I had the pleasure of meeting you a couple times.  The first time was when you were playing with a band, and when you did your song heads turned! You really set an example of how it's done! My guy Emil, said that's Tony Kinman!!!  We really wanted to see more of you , but you were just standing in for a couple of songs.  It made our night pure magic!!  The second time was at the Redwood when you did a song with Ford Madox Ford, that was an extremely special night and you made it unforgettable!  We love you and your family! Thank you again!!  Everything is going to be ok.  Breath and Believe!!! xoxo
