“Hollywood's Top Doctors Revealed: Exclusive Survey... Surgery : F. Charles Brunicardi UCLA Health System 1304 15 St. Santa Monica 90404”
“OFFICIAL NOMINATION HOLLYWOOD MUSIC IN MEDIA AWARDS - CHUCK BRUNICARDI "ROLAND - Where Sunset Meets The Beach" NOVEMBER 4, 2014”
"He is perhaps the only person who has or ever will have created both a book about surgery and songs about the beach on iTunes. A CD from a Notable MD. Can a world-class surgeon become a world-famous musician? F. Charles Brunicardi, MD ’80, is on his way with a new CD of songs."
"F: Along with your career as a doctor, you have also had a very successful musical career as a composer and a folk singer. You have even performed at the Cambridge Folk Festival in 1978. What is the connection between music and Medicine? CB: Very good [laughs]! It’s a wonderful connection. There is something magical about the artform of the popular music"
"he recently was named the Moss Foundation Chair of Gastrointestinal and Personalized Surgery. Being named to that particular chair highlights an intriguing merger of his enthusiasms; Jerry Moss, who with his wife Ann endowed the chair, is the “M” in the legendary A&M Records, which recorded some of Dr. Brunicardi’s favorite artists, including Cat Stevens and Joan Baez. “Of all the chairs for me to get, I can’t describe how deeply honored and thrilled I was to get the Moss Foundation Chair,” Dr. Brunicardi says. “They didn’t know about my interest in music and I think were surprised to learn that all of my favorite artists were with A&M Records.”
"A Master of Music and Medicine. For most mere mortals the chances of becoming a surgeon are slim at best. The chances of landing a record deal are even more minute. The chances of doing both? Impossible. Unless you’re Chuck Brunicardi – country/folk singer and Chief of General surgery at UCLA Medical Center in Santa Monica."
““Music and medicine are both creative processes,” said Brunicardi, who, when he isn’t penning and performing songs as “Chuck Brunicardi,” is editor-in-chief of the world’s leading general-surgery text, Schwartz’s Principles of Surgery. “In medicine, especially if you are doing research, you are discovering new knowledge and putting together a story, just like you would when writing a song.””
"An OR nurse who heard Dr. Brunicardi’s music on the website ReverbNation, introduced him to her husband, Mark Dearnley, a sound engineer for the likes of Paul McCartney, AC/DC and Jewel. Dearnley was impressed, and he helped Dr. Brunicardi assemble an album of his 12 best songs. This summer, they spent two days in Nashville with some top studio musicians recording Where Sunset Meets the Beach." That heady experience, however, didn’t have much time to linger. On his return from the recording session, Dr. Brunicardi went straight from the airport to the hospital to perform a colon resection."
