Memo to George W. Bush: Your presidency is is serious trouble -- More
and more people, particularly Republicans, disapprove of President
Bush's performance, question his character and no longer consider him a
strong leader against terrorism, according to an AP-Ipsos poll documenting
one of the bleakest points of his presidency.
http://www.capitolhillblue.com/blog/2006/0...h_your_pre.html

More problems for the 'wartime president' -- President Bush still faces
bipartisan rancor in Congress over terrorism vulnerabilities at
American ports even though an election-year veto battle over a Dubai-owned
company's U.S. port plans has been defused.
http://www.capitolhillblue.com/blog/2006/0...he_wartime.html

John Boehner: Just another congressman on the take -- For House
Republican leader John Boehner, not all roads lead back home. The Ohio
lawmaker has taken more exclusive golf outings, lobbyist-funded vacations and
fund-raising excursions over 6-1/2 years than trips back to his home
state to visit with constituents, a public watchdog group said Thursday.
http://www.capitolhillblue.com/blog/2006/0...other_cong.html

The public relations war -- In the public-relations war, President Bush
seems to have won one and lost one, dodging the bullet on the
warrantless wiretapping issue while suffering a major defeat in the matter of
outside control of U.S. ports.

Hi!

Two days before I was put into the isolation coercive dungeon, I posted the the last "links by George" post.
AS George is still active and still spreading information, I will resume this thread...

So You will find links from George here again...

NIMBIN APRIL FOOLS’ DAY POLICE RAIDS

Michael Balderstone, President of the Nimbin Hemp Embassy, was sitting in the backyard of the Museum. “I thought it was the musicians arriving for our “Fossil Fools’ Day Event”, but the van door slid open and police poured out in riot gear screaming like on American TV – ‘NOBODY MOVE – IT’S A CRIME SCENE’ etc etc……”

Possibly seventy police spent the day in Nimbin trying to make a difference in our village. But they can’t be here every day, and hippies are never going to stop smoking pot, so when do we start talking and creating real solutions?

The most distasteful part of today is that police co-ordinated their raid with Lismore City Council departments….the crudest way possible for the LCC to communicate with this community. Clearly they are keen to make us as ‘normal’ as possible, which will sterilise the thriving tourism industry here and kill the Aquarian spirit which has brought so much colour to the north coast.

Ironically today our planned event was to ask LCC to let us be nothing like normal, because ‘normal’ has nearly killed the planet, as our press release said. It also appears they want the Museum closed, if not the Hemp Embassy and it’s incorrect of Commander Lyons to say he has the community’s support for his operations. The majority of this community is sick to death of the consequences of cannabis being illegal and he needs to lobby Sydney for us to trial something different instead of just getting more and more police. His job, above all, as I understand it, is to keep the peace.

Our annual MardiGrass and Canna bis Law Reform rally, on the first weekend in May will show him how much support for change there is in the community. Many people in the large crowd witnessing the police today were galvanised for the coming rally. Many other people in the crowd were asking “Where are you when the pub shuts” or “Where are you on Friday night”?

We all know these days that respect is the critical ingredient. When cannabis users are respected for their choice of medicine, the laws and lawmakers may start to be respected again.

If only government employees could speak their mind. Many of them know what we all know - drug use is a health issue and I have no doubt many of the police in Nimbin today quietly questioned the morality of their operation and how worthwhile it was. They know the difference between a pot smoker and a real criminal, and they know pot is the least harmful of all the illegal substances. They also know pot is the easy bust and the harder they target cannabis in Nimbin the more people will use easily hidden powders and pills and drink a lot more alcohol.

In California today there are about four hundred vending machines which spit out a bag of pot if you put in a fifty dollar note, and this in the country which started the war on drugs.

Hopefully Kevin Rudd ’s closer look at youth binge drinking might lead him to some understanding of all youth drug use. Why are they so reckless? Why is disrespect for authority a growth industry? Why don’t the police lobby for more leeway with cannabis users as has happened in the UK ?

Making the hippies’ favourite medicine illegal has created widespread generational disrespect for the laws and lawmakers, not only in our community but throughout the land. Unfortunately the police are the meat in the sandwich, ‘just doing their job’.

World Psychedelic Forum
Basel March 21-24 2008

By Luc Sala of Amsterdam - sala@dealerinfo.nl

Dear Friends,

The tribe has met again, the tribe of those who know that our normal view of reality isn’t all there is, and that there are ways and means to get in touch with the otherworlds without and within. As I have done before I will give my personal and sometimes critical comments here, based on what I experienced and the obviously limited number of sessions I attended. Please understand this is not meant to be an attack on the organisation, I think they did a great job and with 1500 participants they can be proud of establishing the WPF as a real global and important forum. But leaving it at that, they and we would not really learn anything to improve the WPF, stimulate the wider psychedelic community or those involved in similar events.
It was, for me and I believe for many, another meeting of great minds and of hearts, this Psychedelic World Forum. Ambitious name, as a moniker more future-proof than the LSD conference two years ago, but then that was Albert’s event. He wasn’t there, in Basel, to my disappointment, as he was and is such an inspiration. In fact it was a little inconsiderate of those speakers and luminaries to rush off to Rittimatte in Burg in the days before the conference, it was too much for him. He is 102 years old now and his wife passed away recently. I hope the group energy that Nana Nauwald and Alex Grey focussed on his behalf helped him, to do whatever. He is, for me, an example of where humans can go, if they accept, embrace and integrate their inner child. I don’t know if it was the LSD that helped him, or that it came to him because he was already there, but the man is a role model, a signpost of what humans can be; more than that, he appears in my dreams with great lessons.

The conference, organisationally, was Swiss and “gründlich”, a bit stiff and efficient, clear, but I admit I kept my badgeholder, it’s probably very ecological and penny-wise to ask those back, but what about a little memento? Dieter looked tired, Lucius a bit stressed, but they did a good job. May they take what follows as positive feedback. I like the setup with panorama sessions, this allows an overview of what the various speakers are going to present, it’s an efficient way to help attendees to pick and choose from among the parallel sessions.
More research
One of the positive developments in the psychedelic world is that there is, here and there, a little bit more room for research, a little bit more academic freedom. It’s too early to talk about a revival of academic respectability, but the signs are positive with projects underway in Europe (Beckley Foundation, Swiss research) and overseas. One could speculate why this (long overdue) legitimation is happening, was the LSD conference in 2006 a watershed event, has the energetic work of MAPS made a difference or is this freedom related to the increasing number of traumatized ex-soldiers (PTSD) (Vietnam/Iraq). Whatever the reason, it’s a good development and as the organisation stressed the important point that we need “new” research by inviting a host of “rising” researcher, let’s hope for more and elucidating research. Although it’s nice to hear they redid the Pahnke Good Friday experiment of 1962 at John Hopkins, and no doubt with modern technology and more scientific rigidity, for me there is nothing new there, the stuff works! And it’s also good and legally smart that the scholars and scientists at the conference fairly consistently refer to “the substances” as medicine, but at the same time that’s limiting. Albert, in 2006, spoke of “Sakrale Drogen”. I personally appreciate the sacred, the magical, the miracle potion aspect. On the second day this was the central theme, with shamanic use as the focus, and people like Dale Pendell, Kate Harrison and Nana Nauwald made that point, with Baba Rampuri as a colourful aside, but it could have been a little wider, for my taste. Let’s call this the magic side of things, the mind over matter issue, now it sounds too much like the Shamans are a kind of proto-psychotherapists and non-western doctors. They are also sorcerers and magii, and although we all know the work of Albert and Wasson about the Eleusis Mysteries, I would like to know more about the use, the rituals, the inspiration in the Western traditions. Psychedelics as a factor in the Human Evolution, people like Peter Webster and of course Terence McKenna have made that point. And why use the term religion only as a kind of legal path to obtain permission for using substances? In my view most of the shamanic work is utterly religious, in that it follows strict rules and practices. We like to call it spiritual, but a young Indian kid might feel it as very dogmatic.
There are now too many anecdotal and personal stories, documentaries, books, usually about how someone worked through “Western” trauma and blockages with the help of “non-western” sacred plants and rituals. Of course there are people like Stan Grof, who have charted and expanded our Western mind map; his work around the birth matrix and holotropic breath-work I missed at the LSD-conference two years ago, is an essential piece of the puzzle.
Copyrights
One of the undercurrents at this conference was the issue of copyrights, and I think that is important. Too many camera-teams, too many videos with unacknowledged material, too many claims and limited understanding of what the law (the Berner Convention) requires. In short, and apart from personality, musical, portrait and other rights, the copyright of events like this belongs to the producers, the organisers - here the Gaia Foundation. For news purposes one can use limited clips, quotes etc. for 29 days (the concept of free news gathering) but then the rights of all events go back to the producer. They might give that away, making it public domain, or sell it, farm it out any way they want, etc. If the speakers or presenters have made prior arrangements about the rights with the producer, the whole thing gets even more complicated. People registering the event, as far as the programmed speeches etc. go, have in fact no rights at all (after that 29 days, but how many real press people were there?). Now this is not new, so all those people claiming copyrights because it was their camera, their crew that recorded this or that conference or event in the past, they actually have NO or very limited artistic rights. And to sharpen the point, videoing or recording a ritual in an obscure jungle location is therefore illegal, if no deal is made with those who produce the ritual or event. Bad news for all those camera crews out there, but something that obviously also isn’t recognized by all those folks with cameras in the audience at events like these.
It’s another thing to do private interviews with the speakers, and there were quite a few crews around doing that. Some of them made my toes curl because of the shots they made, out-of-focus, backlit, with strange angles and framing, I hope they all will become great cineasts one day or have editing talents and tools beyond my dreams. Most were not press, but making more or less commercial documentaries, in fact using the presence of all those speakers, the public etc. in a commercial production. The organisation allowed that and I admit, I did film too. But then I handed out more than 250 DVD’s of my “Homage to Albert” video for free. It was something I made two years ago as a present for our hero, and I made sure that all those who were in that video received a copy too.
It made me wonder, how many more video/documentaries can we stomach about the psychedelic ®evolution, all with interviews with Grof, Grey, Harrison, MG Garcia, Narby, Pinchbeck, Horowitz, Metzner etc. Yes, the documentaries that were shown at the conference were interesting, but how many more egodocuments spiced up with these clip will find a market out there? Yeah, some are impressive, I had to throw up seeing the ayahuasca film by Jan Kounen, the memories of the terrible taste of that sacred brew are very physical for me, but was there much news, anything I could not have learned from the Yahe Letters or Terence’s books? OK, the visual age is here, the internet can handle some more terabytes of psychedelic information, have a look at my archive material (www.mindlift.tv) but how much is enough?
Which brings me to what I think the real purpose of the WPF is and that is to elevate psychedelics beyond the cult level, make it respectable. Now they tried, but at the same time accommodating the scientists (who do need a respectable platform, I agree), the alternative (freak/cult/culture/tribe) and all those who have a vested (often financial) interest in the whole circus is not an easy thing. Maybe the span of the WPF is a bit too wide, maybe more focus and a smaller scale would work better. But I can also understand the reply: what about the money, the media attention, the scale?
New wave
There were many younger attendees and that is great, we need the new generation. Usually they were experienced trippers, I had great conversations with them, some had very good insight in recognising whom of the speakers was “real” and who not. Encouraging, and one could feel that a new wave might be at hand. I was particularly touched by Rick Doblin kind of vocalising a Boom Festival presence in the hotel lobby with an young crowd around him. But there was much more, mothers talking about their young kids tasting (by accident but obviously some kids get attracted to the substances) LSD or mushrooms. I had fun talking to the young kids, hearing their stories, how they dealt with the legality, the dangers, etc.
I hope the new generation will use all this wisely, the warnings by some shamans about inappropriate use of Ayahuasca were clear, the use of recorded songs is inappropriate because those songs are unique, channelled, time-bound. I totally agree with that warning, many of the self appointed and often self-initiated “western shamans” are dangerously unaware of what is at stake, the spirit world has its dangers and I see that recreational use of cannabis etc. does carry risks.
I actually doubt if western shamans can safely guide such rituals at all, my experience with many many sessions at the Myster center in Amsterdam are not positive. They usually ignore or are unaware of the dark and magical side of it, only recognising the healing part, the mystical state, but don’t deal with the more voodoo part. If we accept that those rituals do help our inner balance, can heal and help, one also has to accept the other side, the danger, the spells, the manifestations of hatred, racism etc. Most of us touch that sphere in our trips, but few are willing to engage that shadow part head on. We might go on a vision quest, but few of us are willing to really face death and pain in a real sense.
It sounds great if Kat Harrison tells the attendees we are, because we were there, all healers, that we can access the band of magic over our head, that we can touch the unseen, but what does that mean? Too many believe that after a few sessions or rituals they can do it themselves, that their glimpse of the other realities made them gurus or at least holy, and they set up a little business. But how does one measure up against the really initiated? There was a demonstration of how modern brain scan techniques can differentiate between mind states, how about a quality-test for aspiring shamans? We know that the legislators are looking for the accidents, the crisis situations, the suicides as an excuse to limit psychedelic use and research, as is now happening in the Netherlands with psilocybin.
The mix
I thought it was great to see that there actually was a nun attending the conference (and a few less recognizable pastors etc.), seeing her talk with the shamans, the hindu folks in orange, the hippie kids. We need to honour that tradition too, monasteries, mass, the sacraments, they are the western way of dealing with the unseen. Of course there was inquisition, holy wars, etc, but do we really think that those Amazonian Indians lived only the holy life? Holy Mass is celebrating a mystery, and even if Jesus wasn’t using Ergot, consecration does mean charging material stuff with unmaterial energy. Priests are shamans, just by another name, and usually well trained. Should freemasons, exorcists, rosicrusians and the craft and druids be part of a forum about entering the otherworld?
The speakers
What makes you eligible to get a gig at the WPF? It looks like writing a popular book, making a documentary, having been there “always” or being “in” with the crowd is important, but most of the recent books contain little new insight, they are professionally crafted and often very commercial productions, rehashing what is already known; in other words, we have a lot of me-too stuff. Yes, Benny Shanon in recent years did some good work with his Ayahuasca study and Narby’s snake/LSD connection is interesting, but is speculating that Mozes, Jesus, or whomever was psychedelically inspired really more than ego-promoting hype? Ok, let’s throw in some 2012, a bit more Iboga, some conspiracy, but it’s all so boring. The Good Friday experiment has been redone, but she/he who has met and connected with Huston Smith (who was one of the participants then) has “felt” how that worked out.
What was missing, although I appreciate the attempts to bring it into the program, was the magic. It is of course important to see what those substances do, what they meant for individual artists, writers, researchers, but how have they influenced our reality? The mystical is ok, that LSD opened inner worlds granted, but can we use this “technology” to solve real problems? Who talks about how Ayahuasca was used in warfare, kept the white invaders away, about the real dark use of substances? Narby does interesting work, trying to help find cures for tuberculosis, but there could be much more. What about climate change, what about deep physics, what about cancer, radiation or dealing with internet-addiction. And sex, too obvious absent at this WPF, like humour, psychedelic can be very funny. I appreciated the fact that “natural” or non-induced altered states were taken seriously in many sessions, and that many spoke of the inner child being an altered state, maybe even the original state. Manuel Schoch quoted the Bible there; “If we do not become like children, we will not enter the kingdom of heaven”.
Art is great, pychedelic art is better, psychedelic music a great inspiration, but I am very happy to see the Grey’s going beyond the 2 dimensional (paintings) into threedimensional (their Chapel and the new place upstate) and fourdimensional work; Alex referred to Jospeh Beuys “social sculpture” ideas. They take the inspiration into the world, actively and in ever wider circles, making the psychedelic experience real, in meeting, connecting and changing our world. We are in a crisis, financially, emotionally, ethically; trying to prove (again) that this or that substance is an effective way to kick this or that habit is old hat, scientifically interesting but not enough. We need new ways of dealing with what’s out there, with climate change, terror, fascism, big brother. Get out there, like in the sixties and make waves, shake them up, go for the magic, even if it makes no sense. Mountain Girl Garcia, one of Kesey’s Merry Pranksters, was one of the most enthousiastic speakers at the Forum, bringing fresh energy, vigor, life to it. And Manuel Schoch was another great and energetic speaker.
I was lucky (or was it synchronicity?) to meet a Heilpraktiker, with little or no experience with the subject, who told me she tried to charge water with LSD information in her hotel. For her that was quite logical, she uses charged water a lot in her healing work. The charging of water (there is even a scale for it called Bovis) is similar to homeopathy, but without dilution, no material exchange happens. Now this is what I have been doing for some time, and it works, but nobody at the WPF believes such “magic”. Stan Grof comes closest as he indicated it might be strong hypnotic induction or placebo effect. But if it works, who cares?
Suggestions
Now criticising the choice of speakers etc. is easy, but may I make some suggestions? Get more eloquent and authorative speakers to keynote. Stan Grof is a lovable man with deep insight, Metzner a sensitive and engaging hero, but I miss the (sometimes demagogic) rants of Leary, of Terence? What about people like John Perry Barlow, Biosphere2 John Allen or Brother David Steindl-Rast? Outsiders, in a way, but they would broaden the scope and they have been around the block too! In fact, there were many people at the conference I would have loved to see on stage, John Gilmore of the EFF among them, and young Finn McKenna, so much his father, let’s encourage him to finish some of Terence’s projects.
When I am honest, I have been to too many of these conferences already, I know the people, I know their “rap”, it’s old hat. So in some lectures I followed I nearly fell asleep, going there because the speakers were famous or my friends, but I have heard it before, the stories, the discourses, I know them. For me it’s meeting old friends, the tribal energy, the openness, the one-on-one contacts, talking about yesteryear and how great it was, the new friends I made.
But obviously there were, beside the insiders, also newcomers, youngsters, people who have not had this opportunity. So there was a kind of a split, a dichotomy. If this were called the World Psychedelic University, geared towards newcomers, new initiates, then having all these old sages telling their stories would have been more appropriate. Then the Daniel Pinchbeck's journalistic but slightly uninspired approach would have been informative for them, the enthousiastic MAPS activist/historian/organiser Rick Doblin could have even better spread the word as an evangelist, they could have had their rave (not at Das Schiff, bitte) and I would have stayed home.
I myself was looking for the inspired, the initiated, the holy and of course there were those inspiring young researchers, writers, psychedelicious spirits of all ages, but why not have a comedian, a live musician, for my part a slight of hand magician with a psychedelic inclination like Jeff McBride make us “feel” what is at stake. The “sacred” moment when the attendees energy was asked to support Albert at the closing ceremony was the highpoint of the WPF for many, is this a lesson?
One last remark, I was glad that the people in prison because of the war on drugs were mentioned in connection with John Beresford, their champion, and that this issue of illegality therefore was part of this event.

Hello again from the south island of New Zealand. We have updated our latest load of photos into our flicker below: Just when we felt that there would be not many more travel images, just a few days excursion into the beautiful local scenery came up with these ones.
http://www.flickr.com/photos/gsrain/


My friend Joanne has contacted me about any possible Woodstock photos, films, memoribilia, etc that might have been taken by people that she would like to consider for her documentary of that magnificent and influential festival. (Thanking Artie Kornfeld for still keeping the spirit alive.) Iwould like to see it happen to see if I could remember myself there in 1969 as well. If you can be of help, her email is: Joann1108@aol.com


Also worthy of help and consideration is my friend Zeke in Croatia. Besides offering an excellent support service for neo-expats, he has also come up with a way of helping economic transactions through freer channels. I am adding his explanation right past the quotes at the end for you to read. He can be contacted at: ezekielinexile@gmail.com
This week begins the start of the new expanded "links by george". I am no longer sending out the weekly edition as instead it is the twice a month mailing. More articles but hopefuly at least some headlines of interest to all. Even though I search out the headlines and try to arrange them in a format of sorts, I personally don't have the time (though I would like to) read each and every one all the way through. Hopefuly just going through the links as headlines makes a good read in itself.
Have a great Equinox/Easter weekend
George

"We Own The World"
By Noam Chomsky
The whole debate about the Iranian "interference" in Iraq makes sense only on one assumption, namely, that "we own the world." If we own the world, then the only question that can arise is that someone else is interfering in a country we have invaded and occupied. So if you look over the debate that took place and is still taking place about Iranian interference, no one points out this is insane.

LETTER FROM MY FRIEND ZEKE IN CROATIA:


Dear George:
This project of our is evolving. What began as an
effort to expand the
ways that we can receive money has morphed into a
way to step up the
resistance. I'll keep you up to date. Things
should start to appear this
week.

In the meantime, here's what you requested:

Verified PayPal Accounts:

Many people have no access to one of the world's
largest payment
processors simply because of where they live.
Eastern Europeans,
Africans and many Asians cannot use PayPal to
receive payment for goods
and services sold online because PayPal, in its
wisdom, deems them
unworthy and unreliable. Having been in that spot
for several years
ourselves, we've researched what it takes to get
a Verified PayPal
account that will allow you to receive money
online. Combining Virtual
Private Network technology with fabricated but
plausible data, we've
created Verified Premier PayPal accounts that are
"located" in Western
Europe where you can send unlimited amounts of
funds and receive up to
2.500 Euro--and the VPN accounts we sell with
them will allow you to
access these accounts without having them
blocked. These are NOT hacked
accounts, stolen accounts or stolen identities.
They are, in essence,
anonymous accounts that can give you access to
e-commerce. For more
info, see http://ecommerceaccess.blogspot.com or
write
ecommerceaccess@gmail.com. (We're also glad to
help those in the U. S.,
Canada and the UK who have had their accounts
unfairly blocked by PayPal.)

Virtual Private Network Accounts:

All over the world, governments, banks, telephone
companies and ISPs are
spying on their own people and customers. Hackers
lurk around WIFI spots
to "sniff" Internet traffic and steal passwords
and identities. What can
you do about these threats short of giving up
your online access?
Virtual Private Networks were developed for large
corporations so that
their employees could have access to corporate
networks from home and on
the road. The best VPN software, open source
OpenVPN, provides two
things of critical value to people today: privacy
and security. First,
an OpenVPN server receives your browsing
commands, strips your IP
address from them and substitutes its own. With
anonymous proxies, the
Web servers that you are browsing can easily tell
that you're using a
proxy. That's not the case with VPN. It appears
to the site that you're
browsing as if you're actually located where the
server is. That's true
privacy. And for security, all traffic between
you and the OpenVPN
server is encrypted using tried and tested SSL
technology. Your ISP
can't tell what you're browsing nor can anyone
else who's trying to
intercept your communications. Hackers and
fascists alike are frozen
out. To get one of these accounts to make your
Internet access more
private and more secure, go here:
http://ecommerceaccess.blogspot.com or
write ecommerceaccess@gmail.com.

OK. That's it.

Do you have a laptop that you keep with you? If
so, I'll send you
instructions for hooking up to our VPN. It takes
about 5 minutes. I need
to know your operating system to provide the most
specific instructions.
If it's Linux, please let me know what flavor.

Our best to you all,

Zeke

QUOTES:



A sobering quote from the Dalai Lama:
"We must be careful not to idealize the old ways of life. The high level of cooperation we find in undeveloped rural communities may be based more on necessity than on goodwill... And the contentment we perceive may actually have more to do with ignorance. These people may not realize or imagine that any other way of life is possible. If they did, very likely they would embrace it eagerly. The challenge we face is, therefore, to find some means of enjoying the same degree of harmony and tranquility as those more traditional communities, while benefiting fully from the material developments of the world as we find it."
That understood, it is hard to imagine anywhere else that remains, however tentatively, what the Himalayan folksongs call a Beyul - a magical land visible only to those of pure heart.



"Why do you want a reason for being? You are here. And because you are here and you don't understand yourself, you want to invent a reason."
J.Krishnamurti




"I will not tire of declaring that if we really want an effective end to violence we must remove the violence that lies at the root of all violence: structural violence, social injustice, exclusion of citizens from the management of the country, repression. All this is what constitutes the primal cause, from which the rest flows naturally.

---Archbishop Oscar Romero, September 23, 1979.





"Read, every day, something no one else is reading. Think, every day, something no one else is thinking. Do, every day, something no one else would be silly enough to do. It is bad for the mind to continually be part of unanimity.": Gotthold Ephraim Lessing (1729-1781) German Dramatist

The path of least resistance and least trouble is a mental rut already made. It requires troublesome work to undertake the alternation of old beliefs. Self-conceit often regards it as a sign of weakness to admit that a belief to which we have once committed ourselves is wrong.

"We've never seen anything like this before with our bats, much less any other mammals, with a very large regional die-off...It’s very scary and a little overwhelming from a biologist’s perspective.

The feeling of patriotism - It is an immoral feeling because, instead of confessing himself a son of God . . . or even a free man guided by his own reason, each man under the influence of patriotism confesses himself the son of his fatherland and the slave of his government, and commits actions contrary to his reason and conscience." : Leo Tolstoy, Patriotism and Government

There is no telling to what extremes of cruelty and ruthlessness a man will go when he is freed from the fears, hesitations, doubts and the vague stirrings of decency that go with individual judgement.

EXPERIENCE HENDRIX TRIUMPHS IN UK COURT BATTLE VS. LONDON TIMES

Experience Hendrix LLC, the Seattle-based family company which owns and
administers the Jimi Hendrix legacy of recordings and songs has,
together with The Last Experience Inc., obtained summary judgment
against the London Times. On September 10, 2006 that newspaper
released
a CD recording of the Jimi Hendrix Experience performing at the Albert
Hall in London on February 24, 1969 as a ³covermount?with its Sunday
edition. That performance was the last time the band ever played
performed in London, the city where an unknown Jimi Hendrix burst into
prominence in late 1966. Despite warnings from Experience Hendrix
prior
to the CDıs release, the London Times proceeded, citing a purported
license of the material from an affiliate of Charly Records whose
claims
to this material have long been disputed by Experience Hendrix.

The Albert Hall concert was actually filmed and recorded on behalf of a
joint venture between Jimi Hendrix, his manager Michael Jeffery, and
filmmakers Steve Gold and Jerry Goldstein. Experience Hendrix is the
successor to the Hendrix and Jeffery interests and The Last Experience
Inc. is the successor to the Gold and Goldstein interests. A copy of
the Albert Hall audio material was obtained in the 1970ıs by Bernard
Solomon, who served as the accountant for Gold & Goldstein and their
companies. Mr. Solomon then began to license the audio material
through
various companies he owned or controlled, all without license or
approval from Hendrix, Gold or Goldstein. These unauthorized Albert
Hall concert releases have continued over the past decades, most
recently through Charly Records and its licensees. The most prominent
of these bootlegs during the past few years have been the ³His Greatest
Hits?(Volumes 1 and 2) CDs released on the Legacy International label.
Experience Hendrix has caused many major record distributors to remove
these recordings from their bins and websites, but these releases
continue to reappear at various retail venues.

When The Last Experience brought to the attention of Warner Bros.
Records in the early 1970's and CBS Records in the early 1980's that
they had released recordings that contained tracks from the Royal
Albert
Hall performance, both of those companies ceased and desisted, unlike
the London Times.

As a consequence of its covermount release and the resulting lawsuit by
Experience Hendrix, the London Times attempted to validate the Charly
Records claim, but the UK court rejected it. The attorneys for the
London Times requested a series of extensions to obtain a statement
from
Mr. Solomon explaining his claim, and eventually proposed to take Mr.
Solomonıs deposition to prove their case, seeking further extensions
into January 2008 for this purpose. It was ultimately revealed that in
October of 2007 a statement had been obtained from Mr. Solomon and that
Mr. Solomon died later that year. Apparently, the October statement
had
initially been withheld from the court because it was insufficient, on
its face, to establish a valid claim.

In its judgment dated February 19, released in final written form this
week, the London court granted summary judgment in favor of Experience
Hendrix and The Last Experience Inc., and awarded Experience Hendrix
recoupment of its legal costs while rejecting the legal arguments and
related factual contentions advanced by the London Times. The court
will
consider the amount of a damage award in a further proceeding.

Janie Hendrix, CEO of Experience Hendrix, commented on the verdict,
³Our
primary focus has long been to safeguard the legacy of Jimi Hendrix;
this verdict validates our efforts and we shall continue our vigilance
in challenging any and all bogus claims to his work.?br>
Jerry Goldstein of The Last Experience noted, ³We, too, are pleased
with
the courtıs decision and looking forward to working with Experience
Hendrix in offering the definitive presentation of this legendary
performance in the future.?br>
DID JON ANDERSON EVER THINK YES WOULD BE AROUND FOR 40 YEARS? Yes
first
got together nearly 40 years ago and now, they are planning to
celebrate
their anniversary with a North American tour. So back in the ?0s, did
singer Jon Anderson ever think the band would still be around all this
time later? (Actuality #3) ³We thought weıd last about four months.
That was our spread. ŒLetıs get it together, do some gigs, get on the
road and hope we can last until the summer of the next year,?which was
?9. And then, as it got progressively better, as success came, I just
got so into rehearsal. ŒLetıs rehearse more, letıs do more music.?nbsp; So
to be able to say here we are, 40 years later is so like a dream.?nbsp; The
band plans to kick off their first trek in over five years on July 12th
in Quebec City. The 26-date jaunt will go through the summer and wind
down on August 22nd in L-A. For more info, head to YesWorld.com.

OLD SKYNYRD SONG MIGHT BE ON NEW ALBUM. When Lynyrd Skynyrd release
their next studio album, there might be a previously unreleased song
featuring the bandıs original lineup on it. Guitarist Gary Rossington
told Billboard.com that he recently unearthed the song from the
archives. Itıs called ³Cottonmouth Country?and according to
Rossington, ³It has Ronnie Van Zant singing and Leon (Wilkerson) on
bass
and Bob Burns is on drums. Itıs a cool track, pretty cool lyrics
itıs
about the swamps.?nbsp; As for what happened with it, Rossington explained,
³We never put it out with (producer) Al Kooper on the first or second
album. We just kind of let it sit there and never finished it. Itıs
pretty well done, but the recording isnıt as good as it could be. So
we
might put that out as a bonus track a whole new Skynyrd song nobodyıs
heard.?nbsp; As for the rest of the record, which is due out early next
year, the guitarist revealed, ³Weıre not doing a country album but
Skynyrdıs always had a little country blood in us. Thatıs where we
come
from.?nbsp; Rossington reports the group already has 20 songs under
consideration and hopes to get in the studio in April or May.
Meanwhile, Skynyrd is set for another leg of the Rowdy Frynds Tour with
Hank Williams, Jr. and .38 Special. That gets underway on April 4th,
while their trek with Kid Rock kicks off on May 15th at New Yorkıs
Madison Square Garden. Rossington spoke about Kid Rock as well,
noting,
³Heıs a great guy, man. We love him and heıs done a lot for us. Weıve
calmed down now so we listen to all the stories about the Kid Rock
party
bus.?br>

LENNONıS FINAL TV INTERVIEW ON DVD. A new DVD featuring John Lennonıs
final televised interview from 1975 is due out next month. The
two-disc
set, called The Tomorrow Show with Tom Snyder: John, Paul, Tom, Ringo,
also includes footage of Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney on Snyderıs
program in the ?0s and ?0s. It hits shelves on April 1st.




ZZ TOP KEEPING BUSY. 2008 will be the year of the Zıs. Thatıs because
in the upcoming months, ZZ Top plan to release a live DVD, a new album
and will hit the road. Guitarist Billy Gibbons revealed to
Billboard.com that he and the boys are ³in the studio, preparing a new
series of sessions of new material?for the bandıs first studio album
since 2003ıs Mescalero. Gibbons hopes to get the record out before
summer but before then, he promises to treat the fans with a live DVD
that spotlights a November 1st concert in Texas. While heıs not sure
when that disc will hit shelves, Gibbons revealed it is ³untouched.
Itıs full of mistakes and thatıs the way we like it.?nbsp; As for a tour,
Billy said, ³Hopefully we'll be able to return to the road as early as
June -- even, if we can pull it off, into May. The European window of
weather you can get out in is very short. So they are ready to rock.
And
we might pick up a string of dates through the U-S, too.?nbsp; If all of
that werenıt enough for the rocker, Gibbons also just taped a guest
appearance on the season finale of the FOX show Bones. He spoke about

Theyıve done it. Iım very proud of it. Iıll probably never travel

which was taken by famed shutterbug Annie Leibovitz, shows the Rolling
Stone guitarist in a hotel room. An Adweek blogger said of the shot,
³If youıre selling leather bags, why not hire one too??nbsp; In response to

Lawyers for the Beatles are suing to thwart distribution of previously
unreleased recordings supposedly made during Ringo Starrıs first
performance with the band, at the Star Club in Hamburg, West Germany,
in
1962, The Associated Press reported. Under the title ³Jamminı With the
Beatles and Friends, Star Club, Hamburg, 1962,² the eight tracks are
said to include Paul McCartney singing Hank Williamsıs ³Lovesick Blues²
and Mr. McCartney and John Lennon singing ³Ask Me Why.² Apple Corps,
the
London company formed by the Beatles, maintains that the songs were
taped without their consent, and that Fuego Entertainment of Miami
Lakes, Fla., and two sister companies have no right to distribute them.
Appleıs lawsuit contends that the recordings are of poor quality and
that circulating them ³dilutes and tarnishes the extraordinarily
valuable image associated with the Beatles.² Paul LiCalsi, a lawyer for
Apple Corps, said, ³This appears to us to be a garden-variety bootleg
recording.² Hugo Cancio, the president of Fuego, said: ³Donıt claim
that
these were just bootlegged. Itıs not like today, that you just go in
with a phone or BlackBerry and you record.² He added: ³The world
deserves to hear these tracks. The fact is that we have it, they donıt,
and that is whatıs bothering them.²

Neil Aspinall 1941-2008

Beatles fixer and friend takes secrets to the grave

Hunter Davies
Tuesday March 25, 2008

Guardian

Neil Aspinall, who died yesterday aged 66, was one of only two people
of
any importance in the Beatles saga who never told their story. Which is
strange, when you think we've had a thousand Beatles books these last
40
years, from people who never met them, to lawyers who did in passing,
chauffeurs who once drove them and scruffs who stood outside their
offices hoping for autographs.

Neil knew everything, everybody, and now, alas, has taken it all to the
grave. Unless there is a posthumous memoir, waiting to be released,
which I doubt. I asked him countless times, saying he should get it all
down, before it's too late, if just for his children. He always said
no.
Neil was there from the very beginning, a constant friend and
associate,
never leaving the magical mystery circle, until a few months ago when
he
retired as head of Apple Corps, looking after their business interests.
Quite a job, when you think of all the legal dramas after the Beatles
split, and the personality differences at one time between Paul and
Yoko.

Born in Prestatyn in 1941, Neil was in the same year at Liverpool
Institute as Paul, and the year above George. His first memory of
George
was George asking him, behind the bike shed, for a drag on his ciggie.
He studied to become an accountant but came back into contact with Paul
and George through his friendship with Pete Best, at one time the
Beatles drummer.

Neil was living at the house of Pete's mother, Mona, who ran the
Casbah,
the little club where the Beatles then played as the Quarrymen. Neil
started working for them as a part-time roadie in 1961, running them to
local gigs in an old van for five shillings per man per gig - £1 a
night.

One of the more dramatic events in early Beatles history, known well by
all true believers, occurred in 1962 when Pete Best was sacked as
drummer and Ringo took over. There were demonstrations on Merseyside,
fans campaigning for Pete who was looked upon as much handsomer. Pete
went on to slice bread for a few pound a week while the Beatles went on
to be the most famous group in the world.

What never came out at the time was that Neil was having an affair with
Mona, Pete's mother. In fact they had a son who was born that same
year.
Neil, only 19, was caught in a terrible emotional turmoil, with Pete
sacked by his new best friends and Mona, his lover, furious at how
Pete,
her son was being treated. John did tell me this gossip, sniggering, in
1967 when I was doing their biography, but said don't repeat it. I only
half believed it anyway. John also told me that he, John, had a
one-night stand with Brian Epstein, their manager, which I now believe
was true.

That same year, 1962, Neil gave up his accountancy studies and joined
the Beatles full-time. Later, when they had started national tohe
was joined by another roadie, Mal Evans. Mal was big and beefy and
unflappable. Neil was lean, rather neurotic, always seemed worried.

He was with them through all their years of fame. He would get shouted
at, told to fetch impossible things, fix ludicrous arrangements. In
1968, Paul decided on the spur of the moment to come and visit me in
Portugal with his new girlfriend Linda, and her daughter Heather. Neil
was told to get them on a plane to Faro. The last flight had gone. So,
late at night, Neil secured a private jet and off they went.

But Neil was more than a roadie and fixer - he was their friend and
confidant, helped with words of songs when they got stuck, with
personal
relationships when they wanted them unstuck.

His accountancy training proved invaluable when he came to run Apple.
As
the years went on, he masterminded much of the group's professional
affairs and back catalogues. On the whole, Neil won most of the
battles,
helping them make further millions. He did also have a creative streak,
acting as the producer of the film Let it Be and organising the Beatles
Anthology.

Neil was totally loyal and faithful to them - and yet not at all
starstruck. He was more than aware of their foibles, greed,
stupidities,
unreasonableness, would readily slag them off. It was clear he was part
of the family, so while moaning, as all family members do, he would
never betray their secrets.

When I pressed him for inside stories, he used to say he couldn't
remember. Mick Jagger always says the same. In Neil's case, it could be
because he wasn't really much interested in the personal stuff. His
mind
didn't quite work that way. He had a dry, austere, rather resigned,
cynical view of most people, more interested in facts and figures than
tittle tattle. He was there, but was somehow floating above it all. The
Beatles were very fortunate to have him.

ZEPPELIN WORLD TOUR UNLIKELY, MORE ONE-OFF SHOWS POSSIBLE. Itıs been a
little quiet on the Led Zeppelin world tour rumor mill, but in a recent
interview with Uncut magazine, Robert Plant has addressed the status of
a trek. It seems that while a full-blown tour is still highly
unlikely,
there might be more one-off performances in the cards, as long as they
are for the right reasons. In the May issue of the periodical, the
singer said, ³Hopefully, one day, we could do it again. Our profit isŠ
itıs metaphysical.² Bassist John Paul Jones added, ³We spoke
afterwards
and we both thought the same it felt like the first night of a tour.
You think, ŒOh, I could do that a bit better, or change something in
that song.ı And we didnıt get a chance to do any more.² Read what
else
the musicians had to say at Uncut.co.uk.

NO CD OR DVD OF ZEP REUNION SHOW ANYTIME SOON. If you werenıt lucky
enough to see the Led Zeppelin reunion show last December, there is a
chance you may have really missed out. Thatıs because the band isnıt
planning on releasing a DVD or CD of the concert. According to
Englandıs Daily Mirror, guitarist Jimmy Page said, ³It was recorded
but we didnıt go in with the express purpose of making a DVD to come
out
at Christmas or whatever.² But donıt lose all hope, Page said that a
future release ³at some distant point² was remotely possible.

COULD THERE BE A NEW ALBUM FROM ZEPPELIN? If it turns out that Led
Zeppelin doesnıt do a world tour, they might still be spending some
time
together in the studio working on a new album. Bassist John Paul Jones
spoke to Uncut magazine about the possibility of new music. When asked
about more original Zep records, Jones said, ³Iıd have to think about
that. Iım not too sure. Iım not too certain about anything right at
the moment. Iıve got no idea whatıs going to happen. But Iıd
certainly
like to play with Jimmy [Page] again.² So could this be all from the
band? Uncut questioned Jones if the reunion began and ended at last
Decemberıs Ahmet Ertegun Tribute Concert in London, and the bassist
simply responded, ³Itıs possible. Itıs possible.² Read more at
Uncut.co.uk.

MORE DEAD WITH MORE OBAMA? Back in February, The Deadıs surviving
members got together to perform at a Deadheads for Obama rally in San
Francisco and, if the Senator from Illinois winds up getting the
Democratic nomination for President, fans might see more of the band.
Guitarist Bob Weir told Billboard that the group had fun during the
rally and while each member is busy with their own projects, Weir
notes,
³Weıll get together again. Iım sure of that.² Bob also revealed that
he and his bandmates like Obama ³for different reasons² and goes on to
explain, ³I think it may be the last chance in our lifetimes to get
money out of politics, to show special interests the door. Itıs also a
chance to get younger people involved in politics for the first time in
many years; once theyıre involved, I think theyıll stay and thatıs more
important because itıs their future being decided now.² In the
meantime, Weir is trying to find a producer for his musical about Negro
Leagues great Satchel Paige and heıs considering a new Ratdog album.




44-YEAR-OLD BAN AGAINST ROLLING STONES LIFTED. When the Rolling Stones
played Blackpool, England in 1964, riots broke out which led to 50
injured people, along with vandalism and damage to the venue. Since
that night, the band has been banned from performing in the town.
However, NME reports that after 44 years, Blackpoolıs city council has
lifted the ban and announced that the group is welcome to play there
again.

STONES DRUMMER WANTED TO WALK OUT OF OWN DOCUMENTARY? When Rolling
Stones drummer Charlie Watts sat down to watch Shine a Light, the
Martin
Scorsese directed documentary about the group, he wanted to leave early
because he wasnıt keen on watching the footage of him from decades ago.
According to the BBC, Watts revealed, ³He [Scorsese] used a bit of
flashback which I donıt really like much cause I donıt like seeing
myself 40 years ago saying something stupid.² So why didnıt Watts just
leave? Apparently, during the filmıs premiere at the Berlin Film
Festival, Charlie was in the front and, as he says, ³You canıt get up
and leave cause everyoneıs looking at you. So we had to sit through
it,
but actually, about five minutes from the end, I though, ŒOkay, thatıs
enough.ı² Shine a Light comes out on April 4th.

KEITH RICHARDS ON SEX AND SEXUALITY. Keith Richards is talking sex
with
GQ magazine. The Rolling Stones guitarist revealed that the number of
women he shared with Mick Jagger was ³a stable² and explained that
after
Jagger took his girlfriend Anita Pallenberg in the Œ60s, Richards set
out to try to steal every one of the singerıs women as revenge. Keith
said, ³Iıve stolen quite a few off of him and heıs nudged his way into
my lot, but not significantly. After the Anita thing, I made a point
of
stealing every b***h he had.² In the interview, Richards also opened
up
about Jaggerıs sexuality, adding, ³I really have no idea if anyone ever
shoved it up the s***ter. Iım not there watching it every day. But
there was, at the time, a load of excruciatingly painful campness that
went on.² To read more, head to Men.Style.com/GQ.



MOTORHEAD FEATURED IN NEW COMMERCIAL. Motorhead has influenced a new
AT&T Wireless commercial. The ad features a hard rocking guy playing
pool and singing ³Ace of Spades² while the viewers learn about the
power
of AT&T Wirelessı network, which is strong enough to get service in
places where other networks might not. That way, according to the
commercial, you wonıt miss the calls from your friends letting you know
³about Motorhead tickets tonight.² Meanwhile, the band is working on
their follow-up to 2006ıs Kiss of Death. The new album is due out in
late spring or early summer.

YES WILL BE VIRTUALLY EVERYWHERE THIS SUMMER. Yes plan to celebrate
their 40th anniversary as a band with a North American tour. The trek,
which is the groupıs first in over five years, will bring them to 26
different cities. However, if your town isnıt one of them, you might
not have to worry. Singer Jon Anderson spoke about an idea he has.
(Actuality #5) ³I like the idea of podcasting on tour so that people
all
over the world will be able to see what itıs like to be in a crazy rock
and roll band touring the world. Chaos. Beautiful chaos.² The Yes
tour gets underway on July 12th in Quebec City, Canada and goes through
late August. For dates, head to YesWorld.com.

NOT TOO MANY PROBLEMS AT GIANT NEW ZEALAND FESTIVAL. It seems like too
good a time was had by some at Wellingtonıs Rock2Wgtn festival this
past
weekend. At the event, which played host to the likes of Ozzy
Osbourne,
Poison and Whitesnake, 20 people were arrested in two days. According
to New Zealandıs Dominion Post, most of the arrests were for minor
offenses. An official for the venue where the concert was held said,
³I
think it was pretty good, given the type of crowd that we had all
there looking to have a good time.² You can read more at Stuff.co.nz.



Robert Crumb on Collecting

The following quotes are taken from the book, ³Vinyl Junkies:
Adventures
in Record Collecting² by Brett Milano.

³Collecting is creepy. Record collectors put each other down for their
various fixations. Everybody is convinced that his way of collecting is
superior. They look down on casual collectors, who are just
accumulators
- the kind whoıll just pick up anything and let it pile up. A true
collector is more of a connoisseur, and thatıs the good thing about
collecting. It creates a connoisseurship to sort out whatıs worthwhile
in the culture and what isnıt. Wealthy art collectors in this country
have sorted out who the great artists are. If youıre collecting a lot
of
objects of one particular kind, you develop a very acute sense of
discrimination.²

³Any of the younger guys who get into collecting are quirky and oddball
types, pretty maladjusted people. Theyıre not into hanging around in
bars and picking up chicks or nothing. If they have a girlfriend at all
itıs amazing. And the older collectors I know, a lot of them just have
their little room down in the basement where they go and listen. They
donıt share it with anyone, and their wives donıt know anything about
it. So when they die, the vultures start descending.²

³78 collectors have almost nothing to do with LP or 45 collectors;
prewar collectors have nothing to do with postwar collectors. They
donıt
avoid each other, but they bully and pick on each other. Thatıs the
problem, itıs lonely collecting records. You can share it, but thereıs
a
vicious undercurrent there, the only person you can ever impress with
that rare record you just got is another collector whoıs looking for
the
same record. And the average person, I can show them the rarest record
in the collection and theyıll say, ŒYeah? So what?ı

³I did try to share it with the world, I did comic stories about old
musicians because I thought it was far superior to anything being done
currently. In this case, I had done a comic story about Charley Patton,
one of the great fathers of the blues, and the guy who published it was
over at my house. So I took out one of my favorite 78s, Charley
Pattonıs
ŒDown the Dirt Road,ı and I put it on. So Iım sitting there, having
this
great experience listening to this record, and heıs sitting there
quietly, patiently. And after I took it off, he looks at me and says,
ŒSo, what did you like about that?ı I mean, he wasnıt trying to be
insulting, just curious, but what can you say to that? So I donıt try
to
convert people anymore.²

³Picking up chicks? Forget it! It never gets them hot, they donıt give
a
shit about collectors. I wouldnıt say that collectors are antisocial -
that would imply that they want to do something harmful to society -
but
itıs not very sociable either. Very self-obsessed, kind of asocial.
Thatıs why the world looks down on collectors, it takes a certain kind
of personality. There is nothing sexy or glamorous about it. Women
arenıt attracted to people because they collect. You can go up to them
and say, ŒIım an outlaw banditı and theyıll like that. But if you say,
ŒIım a collectorı - no chance.²

The Who Prep Covers Album

The Who are planning a collection of vintage R&B covers, similar to

Richards,

Procol Harum wins back "Whiter Shade" rights

LONDON (Reuters) - Procol Harum founder Gary Brooker on Friday won his
court
battle over royalty rights to the band's most famous hit, the 1967 song
"A
Whiter Shade of Pale."

In 2006 London's High Court awarded former keyboard player Matthew
Fisher 40
percent of the copyright of the track, which has sold an estimated 10
million copies worldwide, after he successfully argued that he wrote
the
organ music to the song.

Brooker appealed, and on Friday judge John Mummery ruled that Fisher
should
be credited with co-authorship of the seminal track but should not
benefit
financially because he took 38 years to take his case to court.

"Matthew Fisher is guilty of excessive and inexcusable delay in his
claim to
assert joint title to a joint interest in the work," Mummery said in
his
judgment.

"He silently stood by and acquiesced in the defendant's commercial
exploitation of the work for 38 years."

Fisher described the appeal court's ruling as "peculiar."

"Having demolished every single argument advanced by Gary Brooker's
legal
team ... Mummery suddenly produced an argument of his own, like a
magician
producing a rabbit out of a hat," the musician said on his Web site
www.matthewfisher.com.

"This argument is so obscure and oblique as to defy comprehension."

He added that for him the case was never about money but getting due
credit
for what he called "the most commercial and essential feature" of the
haunting ballad, namely the famous organ introduction.

Brooker welcomed the court's decision, which he said had "gone some way
to
putting this right."

"For nearly three years this claim has been a great strain upon myself
and
my family," he said in a statement. "I believe the original trial was
unfair
and the results wrong."

Brooker, who still fronts Procol Harum, is arguing with Fisher over who
should pay the legal costs in the case, which are believed to run to
several
hundred thousand dollars.

Fisher may also take the case to the House of Lords, the highest court
in
the country.

Although Fisher won the 2006 case, a judge rejected his claim to half
of the
copyright of the hit and back royalties estimated to be worth around $2
million.

Fisher sued Brooker and Onward Music Ltd, and during the original trial
the
High Court reverberated to the sound of "A Whiter Shade of Pale," whose
accompaniment is based on Johann Sebastian Bach's works including "Air
on a
G String."


SHINE A LIGHT WASNケT AN EASY THING FOR THE STONES TO DO. Shine a
Light is
the new documentary from director Martin Scorsese that spotlights a
Rolling
Stones concert from 2006. One might think that it was easy for the
band to
make, but as Mick Jagger explains, that wasnケt the case. (Actuality
#5)
ウShooting this movie was quite nerve-wracking in some ways, it was
fantastically enjoyable, but in other ways, it was very nerve-wracking
for
us. Iケm sure that Marty has got a lot of things going on, and heケs
got to
cover it when it happens. It was quite a challenge. Talking about
having
fun, it was great fun to do, but it was great challenge for everyone to
come
up with the goods both on the night and after it.? Shine a Light
rocks into
theaters today.


NEIL YOUNG AND CRAZY HORSE TO RELEASE TOAST. Back in 2000, Neil Young
and
Crazy Horse spent some time recording an album at San Franciscoケs
Toast
Studios. That record, called Toast, was scrapped after a few months of
working on it. However, according to a post on Youngケs Web site, John
Hanlon, a co-producer on the disc, is currently mixing the songs so
that
Toast can finally be released in the near future. The post describes
the
tracks, noting, ウMany songs share a bluesy, jazz-tinged vibe as a
common
thread. Three solid rockers are interspersed in the mix. Other songs
are
long with extensive explorations between verses, a Crazy Horse
trademark,
kind of like a down-played Tonightケs the Night, except these songs
deal
directly with love and loss, not drugs.? The post ends by revealing
that
the Toast release is just the beginning of a ウnew series of unreleased
albums.? No word on what else might be coming out but you can read
more at
NeilYoung.com.

NEW LENNON TRACK TO COME OUT? A previously unreleased John Lennon song
might surface as a tribute to the ウfifth Beatle,? producer Neil
Aspinall,
who died last month. The track is called ウNow and Then? and Lennon
made a
home recording of it in the ?70s. However, according to Englandケs
The Sun,
it would take a lot of work to restore the tapes to full quality.
Also, if
it does come out, there is no word on if Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr
would add anything new to the song.


BE THE FIRST ON LED ZEPPELIN THE RIDE. You have a chance to make
history
with Led Zeppelin? kind of. Hard Rock Park is auctioning off 15
tickets to
people who want to be among the first to ride their 155-foot high Zep
themed
roller coaster Led Zeppelin The Ride. As the coaster takes
parkgoers 15
stories in the air, it blasts the bandケs hit ウWhole Lotta Love.?
You can
enter to experience it yourself at HardRockPark.com. The auction goes
until
the 7th and the winner will not only receive a ride on the coaster but
also
a commemorative photo, park admission and an autographed Led Zeppelin
poster. The 140-acre Hard Rock Park, which is in Myrtle Beach, South
Carolina, opens on June 2nd with concerts from The Eagles and The Moody
Blues.



WILL AC/DC HEAD OUT ON A FAREWELL TOUR? If you believe rumors and
youケre a
fan of AC/DC, you might be sad to hear this. A New York DJ is claiming
that
the hard rock legends plan to take off on a farewell tour later this
year,
once they finish recording their latest album. While there has been no
evidence to support this, bassist Cliff Williams did recently speak
about
their next tour with Spinner.com. Williams said, ウIf we go out again
or
when we go out again, you just never know. Weケve been around a long
time,
so weケre doing to get together and get in the studio and I fully
expect we
will (tour). I donケt mean to be so negative about that.? No word
yet on
when the band plans to release their upcoming album.

ROLLING STONES STILL GOT IT AFTER ALL THESE YEARS. In Shine a Light,
director Martin Scorsese documents a Rolling Stones concert from 2006
and in
between some songs, inserts footage from the bandケs early days. In
one
black and white clip, a young Mick Jagger is asked if heケll be
performing
when heケs 60. He answered he hopes so. So when the 64-year-old was
asked
this weekend if heケd still be playing when heケs 70, his equally-aged
bandmate Keith Richards answered for him. (Actuality #3) ウThatケs
only five
years away!? In the flick, the audience can see that even at his age,
Jagger
is still very fit. So did the legendary musician prepare at all for
the
show? (Actuality #4) ウNo gym, no vitamins I think that day, just do
it.
Just get out there.? You can see how the Stones look when Shine a
Light
hits theaters on Friday.

KEITH RICHARDS WANTS TO SMOKE FREELY. Keith Richards wants to smoke
wherever he pleases. The famed Rolling Stone is lashing out against
the U-K
government, which banned smoking in public areas. Richards told
Englandケs
The Sun, ウItケs a drag because youケve got to freeze your balls off to
light a
cigarette, youケve got to go outside. Itケs draconian, socially,
politically
correct bulls**t. Theyケll get over it.? Richards then compared the
ban to
1920ケs America, noting, ウItケs like prohibition, they tried to stop
booze
once. Ha, look what happened, it ruined America.? Of course, a ban
wonケt
stop the guitarist from smoking. You can see Richards illegally
lighting up
on stage at New Yorkケs Beacon Theatre in Shine a Light, the new Martin
Scorsese directed documentary on the Stones. Itケs in theaters on
Friday.

PHIL SPECTOR WONケT BE READY UNTIL SEPTEMBER. Phil Spector was back in
court
on Friday, when his lawyer told the judge that they would not be ready
for
the producerケs murder retrial until September. Also, even though the
honorable Larry Paul Fidler previously rejected Spectorケs request for
a
different, more neutral judge, his attorney appealed the ruling. Now,
a new
hearing is set for May 22nd, when the trial date could be announced.
Spector is accused of murdering actress Lana Clarkson at his California
mansion in 2003. His first trial ended last September with a
deadlocked
jury.

fake band that satirized the songs of a real band. Or maybe it's a
reenactment by four men of four men farcically reenacting the lives of
four
other men. Or maybe it's a new genre of rock: heavy meta.

However you describe it, "Rutlemania," which tonight ends a four-night
stand

in New York, is a hall of mirrors set to a beat, laugh track sold
separately. The nominal point was to celebrate the 30th anniversary of
the
release of "All You Need Is Cash," a mockumentary that told the
fictional
story of Dirk, Nasty, Stig and Barry of a band called the Rutles, whose

lives, music and follies closely track the lives, music and follies of
the
Beatles. So "Rutlemania" is media mash-up, a live band playing beneath
a
movie screen, a little bit of "Rocky Horror Picture Show" atmospherics,
plus
a lot of trouser jokes.

In "Cash," everything about the Fab Four was tweaked just enough to
render
John, Paul, George and Ringo faintly preposterous. The narrator of the
film
-- former Monty Python Eric Idle, who also plays Dirk, the Paul
McCartney
knockoff -- says the Rutles (rhymes with shuttles) played one of their
most
famous concerts in Che Stadium, "named after the Cuban guerrilla
leader, Che
Stadium." When Nasty, the John Lennon character, falls in love, it's
with a
Yoko-ish experimental artist dressed in a Nazi outfit whose father, we
learn, "invented World War II." The band dissolves rancorously, just
like
the Beatles. "In December 1970," the narrator says, "Dirk sued Stig and

Nasty, Barry sued Dirk, Nasty sued Stig and Barry, and Stig sued
himself
accidentally."

"All You Need Is Cash" pretty much bombed when it aired on NBC, coming
in
76th in the ratings that week in 1978. (No. 1 that week: An episode of
"Charlie's Angels.") But "Cash" is beloved by Beatles fans, not least
for
its songs, an imitation of Beatles style that managed the astounding
trick
of exalting the originals and belittling them at the same time. So the
idea
behind "Rutlemania" was to reprise those songs with the help of a
Beatles
cover band, in this case a well-regarded outfit called, confusingly
enough,
the Fab Four. (For the sake of clarity the band will be referred to
henceforth as "the Fab Four.")

If the layers of lampoonery sound confounding on paper, they weren't in

Blender Theater on Thursday night. The strange part, instead, was the
uncanny quiet of the room. All the Beatles footage you've ever seen
includes

a quick cut to a crowd in the midst of a blissful meltdown. Of course,
you
can't expect pandemonium from a band simulating a satiric simulation,
especially in a room with a few hundred seats, dozens of which are
empty,
the rest of which are filled with men over 40. Including Salman
Rushdie. How

much leaping and shouting do you think Salman Rushdie does?

But those facts only partially minimize the weirdness of sitting and
listening to a Rutles track like "Number One," an imitation of the
Beatles
circa 1964, and realizing that you're sitting. Because everyone is
sitting.
Because it would be odd to do anything but sit.

It was a crowd reaction befitting a movie, which seemed apt as soon as
it
became clear that "All You Need Is Cash" would play on a large screen
behind

the band. When the Rutles are shown singing, the movie synced to the
band's
live performance. And the movie played when the group went backstage
for one

of its many costume changes. Two female dancers accompanied the band,
reflecting the way fans of the Beatles changed both their outfits and
their
shimmying over the years.

It's a testimony to the enduring hilarity of "Cash" that within 20
minutes
it was obvious that the film would upstage the band. "Cash" eventually
inspired films like "This Is Spinal Tap," which fired at a far broader
target, hard rock itself. But part of the genius of "Cash" is its
specificity. The movie flatters Beatles obsessives by taking minutiae
only a

hard-core fan would know and turning it into an inside joke. If, for
instance, you know that the Beatles' manager, Brian Epstein, wrote a
book
called "A Cellarful of Noise," you'll be tickled that the manager of
the
Rutles, Leggy Mountbatten, wrote a book called "A Cellarful of Goys."

The Beatles themselves reacted very differently to "Cash." Lennon
responded
to one fan who asked for his thoughts about the movie by singing part
of
"Cheese and Onions," a song parody of Lennon's late period writing.
(Chorus:

"Do I have to spell it/C-H-E-E-S-E-A-N-D-O-N-I-O-N-S oh no.") McCartney
was
apparently unamused until learning that Neil Innes, who wrote the
Rutles
songs and plays the Lennon character, was, like Macca, from the north
of
England. Ringo is said to like the stuff about events after 1968, for
some
reason. George Harrison has a cameo in the movie -- he plays a
reporter,
doing a story about the looting of the Rutles corporation. He
reportedly
referred to the Beatles as the Rutles for years.

This might have been Harrison's way of dealing with and minimizing the
myth
of the Beatles, but perhaps he also appreciated that you can mock
something
and love it, too. The fans of "Cash" get that, particularly the ones
who
showed up Thursday night. When the movie ended, "the Fab Four" did a
few
songs as the Fab Four and for the first time, the crowd stood up and
danced.

Everybody loves a good ironic joke, but if you want people to twist and

shout, it seems, you've still got to imitate the real thing.


Ramblin Jack Elliott

An Evening of Song, Stories, Wit, Wisdom and Much More . . .

Living Legends Share Stage for the
First Time in Berkeley April 25 & 26th

Berkeley CA- It is hard to believe that two of music's living legends
and
long time evangelical Woody Guthrie devotees had never broken bread
together. Three weeks ago, Ramblin Jack Elliott and Country Joe
McDonald
met for the first time for dinner at Caf? de la Paz in Berkeley's
Gourmet
Ghetto, and something special happened. Jack picked up a guitar and
started playing Woody Guthrie's Ladies Auxiliary and Country Joe, who
has
been performing his critically acclaimed tribute to Woody for several
years,
dropped his jaw when Ramblin Jack sang some long forgotten stanzas to
the
popular old Union ballad. After hours of swapping lies, stories and
lessons on text messaging, the two decided to do an intimate one-time
only
show right in the Caf? de la Paz's intimate (100 seat) Fiesta Room.

WHERE: Caf? de la Paz 1600 Shattuck Avenue, Berkeley, CA

ROGER WATERS IS ALL FOR OBAMA Former Pink Floyd man Roger Waters is a
big fan of Barack Obama, and the bassist isnıt holding back about
Obamaıs opponent, Hillary Clinton, going sofar as to say she would
strt a war with Iran if she were President. According to The
Independent, Waters said, ³Please God, letıs not have this woman!
Hillary will want to mae her mark and show that she can be just as good
as a male president, and she will f***ing invade Iran. Trust me.² As
for his love of the Senator from Illinois, Waters added, ³I would buy a
whole page in The New York Times and fly Obamaıs flag. But I would be
terribly afraid theyıd go, ŒThis is that pinkos**tbag whoıs attacking
our President in a time of war.ı² Waters is playing the Coachella
festival in Indio, California on April 27th.



STRAWBERRY FIELDS HOMELESS MAN IN TROUBLE Anyone whoıs visited
Strawberry Fields, the tribute to John Lennon at New York Cityıs
Central
Park, might have run into a homeless man named Gary dos Santos. For
the
past 15 years, dos Santos has been arranging flowers into a peace sign
at the memorial and speaking to groups about Lennon. However, now cops
are threatening to charge him with littering and assembling large
groups
without a permit. According to the New York Post, heıs even been
ticketed twice, once for having a group of 20 people at the site and
another for a noise violation. Dos Santos explained to the paper,
³They
told me I needed a permit if I wanted to bring large groups of people.
But I donıt bring them here. The guides ask me to speak to them.²
Law-enforcement sources feel differently and call dos Santos a
nuisance,
claiming theyıve received numerous complaints about him harassing
visitors and conducting tours for money. But dos Santos is fighting
those claims, and already has collected more than 600 signatures for a
petition that says he is not disruptive and never begs for cash.
According to the homeless man, ³All Iım trying to do is give what the
brother [Lennon] wanted peace.²

WIN THE WHOıS MAGIC BUS Roger Daltrey is 64 and in great health, and he
explained the secrets to his condition to Londonıs Telegraph. The Who
singer revealed itıs because of ³lots of walking and even more
shagging.² As for performing, Roger added, ³These days I play for free
­ itıs the schlepping about that I get paid for.² Meanwhile, you can
enter to win The Whoıs Magic Bus, a 1965 VW van which has been signed
by
the surviving members. The band is holding a raffle and each ticket
costs about ten dollars, with at least seven of those dollars going
towards the Teenage Cancer Trust charity. The best part is, even if
you
donıt win, youıre still a winner because every entrant receives a free
download of a previously unreleased live performance of ³Magic Bus²
from
when the group played at the International Bus Meeting last year. Head

MORRISONıS LATEST MILESTONE With over 40 years making music, Van
Morrison hit yet another milestone in his career this week. The
legendary singer had his highest ever U-S debut with his latest album,
Keep it Simple, which bows in next week on the Billboard chart at
number
ten. Morrison is currently touring overseas and plays Milano, Italy
tonight.



TRIBUTE CONCRTS TO HONOR JEFF HEALEY On March 2nd, Canadian guitar
great Jeff Healey died of cancer and in May, a pair of concerts are set
to take place in Toronto to honor the musician. Healeyıs backup band,
the azz Wizards, will open the first tribute concert on May 3rd. Deep
Purpleıs Ian Gillan and Creamıs Jack Bruce will perform at that show,
which will focus on Healeyıs contributions to rock. According to CBC

one-year-old. Tickets for the shows are on sale now.

ZAPPAıS WIDOW SUE FAN CLUB FOR INFRINGEMENT Frank Zappaıs widow is
trying to stop a erman fan club from using her late husbanıs name.
Gail Zappa says the German-based Arf Societyıs logo and use of the

held
by the Zappa Family Trust. According to the Associated Press, the logo
features a moustache, very similar to the one Zappa wore. The ociety
says the trust has been aware of its use of the name since the inaugurl
festival in 1998. A state court in Duesseldorf began hearing the case
on Wdnesday.

RONNIE HAWKINSı ROULETTE SESSIONS FROM 1959-63 REISSUED ON COLLECTORSı
CHOICE

Twofer CD combines Mojo Man and Arkansas Rock Pile albums, featuring
The
Hawks (later The Band): Robbie Robertson, Levon Helm, Richard Manuel,
Garth Hudson and Rick Danko

LOS ANGELES, Calif. ‹ Ronnie Hawkins, born in 1935, was the rock ını
roll pride of Arkansas in the Œ50s when, at the suggestion of fellow
Arkansan Conway Twitty, he moved to Canada, where there was a thriving
rockabilly scene. From Hamilton, Ontario, Hawkins successfully toured
and recorded in both his adoptive country and his native USA. ³There
were three guys in those days who would really knock you out,² recalls
Sun rockabilly artist Sonny Burgess, ³Elvis, Jerry Lee and Ronnie
Hawkins.² Two of Hawkinsı classic albums, Mojo Man and Arkansas Rock
Pile, both culled from 1959-63 sessions in Nashville and New York, will
be reissued on Collectorsı Choice Music on April 29, 2008. Pop
historian
Gene Sculatti, author of The Catalog of Cool, wrote the liner notes.

Hawkins was equally known for his band, The Hawks, which started back
home in Arkansas with drummer Levon Helm but gained its core membership
in Canada with Robbie Robertson, Richard Manuel, Rick Danko and Garth
Hudson. (In later years, The Hawks went on to become Bob Dylanıs band
and later The Band.)

The Collectorsı Choice twofer contains two long-out-of-print albums,
featuring 23 tracks from the early sessions. While information on the
Roulette label is always a bit spotty, the label appears to have
released Mojo Man in 1967 in Canada only, and released Arkansas Rock
Pile in 1970 in the U.K. only.

Mojo Man culls most of its material from other artists and writers, but
Hawkins leaves his own mark on each song. Teaming The Hawks with
saxophone legend King Curtis, Hawkins turns ³Suzy Q,² originated in
1957
by his cousin Dale Hawkins, into a rave-up. Carl Perkinsı ³Matchbox² is
re-imagined with an R&B bar-band feel and a scorching Robbie Robertson
guitar solo. Other highlights include Bobby ³Blue² Blandıs ³Farther Up
The Road² and ³What a Party,² a re-titled cover of Muddy Watersı ³Sheıs
19 Years Old.² Two other covers, Hank Williamsı ³Your Cheating Heart²
and George Gershwinıs ³Summertime,² hail from two different Nashville
sessions in 1960 and feature, instead of The Hawks, Floyd Cramer,
piano;
Harold Bradley, guitar; and Bob Moore, bass.

In Arkansas Rock Pile, Hawkins pays further homage to his fellow
originators of rock ını roll. The album contains wild treatments of Bo
Diddleyıs ³Who Do You Love² (featuring furious guitar work by Robbie
Robertson and Richard Manuelıs pumpinı piano) plus Boıs eponymous ³Bo
Diddley²; Chuck Berryıs ³Thirty Days,² re-cast as ³Forty Days²; Billy
Lee Rileyıs wild rockabilly anthem ³My Gal is Red Hot²; and Larry
Williamsı ³Dizzy Miss Lizzy.² Also included are the mid-tempo blues
³Come Love² (with Helm, Danko and Robertson and a chorus likely
containing Dionne and DeeDee Warwick) and Hawkinsı own Lieber &
Stoller-produced ³Arkansas,² which name checks ³Mary Lou, Odessa and
Runaround Sue.² On ³Arkansas,² Helm, Robertson and Manuel are joined by
blues harmonica giant Sonny Terry.

Fresh from his Roulette years (1959-67), Hawkins went to Atlanticıs
Cotillion label, where he had a hit with ³Down in the Alley,² featuring
Duane Allman and the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section. He continues to gig,
as he puts it, ³wherever there are rock ını rollers. Thatıs what weıve
been doing for more than 40 years. Itıs made me everything from an
honorary mayor to an honorary member of a motorcycle gang.²

SHEL SILVERSTEIN BOOK AND ALBUM REISSUES ON THE WAY Writer: Adina
Fleming News, Published online on 09 Apr 2008 In honor of National
Poetry Month, HarperCollins Childrenıs Books and Water Records are
re-issuing some of Shel Silversteinıs lesser-known works. Although
famous for his classic childrenıs books, Silverstein, who died in 1999,
was also a composer and songwriter.

Included in the re-issue are five different works spanning
Silversteinıs
various mediums. Donıt Bump the Glump! And Other Fantasies is
Silversteinıs debut poetry collection, first published in 1964.
Silverstein contributed to Playboy throughout his career, and Playboyıs
Silverstein Around the World gathers together 23 illustrated essays
originally published in Playboy documenting Silversteinıs journeys
abroad and in 1960ıs America.

Three of Silversteinıs musical contributions are being re-issued, all
available for the first time on CD. Silversteinıs first LP, Hairy Jazz,
was originally released in 1959 and features him performing standard
and
classic jazz and ragtime songs accompanied by The Red Onions Jazz Band.
The follow-up to Hairy Jazz, Inside Folk Songs, features all original
material including ³25 Minutes To Go,² which was later made famous by
Johnny Cash. Finally, Silversteinıs sixth album, Boy Named Sue, is
being
re-issued which features the title track, which was eventually another
massive Cash hit.

Silversteinıs comic illustrations are also currently being shown in
Dave
Eggersı exhibition Lots Of Things Like This at apexart in New York
City.

Dead & Taxes²

Thatıs what weıre calling our Grateful Dead Night event folks. So come
on over and share your US Tax Payer Blues with friends & family on
Tuesday, April 15 @ 12 Galaxies (.com) in the San Francisco Mission
District.

Weıre especially honored to have Grateful Dead lyricist, John Perry
Barlow, come down and spend an hour or so talking, telling stories,
discussing current events & possibly a Q & A session with the audience.
John has written lyrics for many of your favorite Grateful Dead/Bob
Weir
songs such as ³Cassidy², ³Let It Grow², ³Estimated Prophet², ³Music
Never Stopped², ³Hell in A Bucket², ³Lost Sailor², ³Saint of
Circumstance² and many, many more. His lyrics from "Throwing Stones" or
"We Can Run" are as relevant today as the day they were written.

This night will also feature an awesome acoustic set or two from Stu
Allen (JGB/Melvin Seals/Workingmanıs Ed) & Pat Nevins (Workingmanıs
Ed/Ragged Glory) covering Jerry, Neil, Graham Parsons, etcŠ For those
who missed them last time, an ³Acoustic Crazy Fingers" basically sums
it
up. There's a reason Stu Allen plays guitar for Melvin Seals & JGB.
Weıre still working-out the exact logistics of the night, but it will
be
posted soon.

We'll also have legendary Grateful Dead/Legion of Mary/Jerry Garcia
Band/Reconstruction engineer-producer Betty Cantor-Jackson ("Betty
Boards") here this evening to help mix sound and just be there in
support of Dead Night...

Weıll end the last portion of the night with a rockinı set from my
personal archive of music.

Weıd like to think this event kicks-off the official ³Dead-Head Season²
of Spring and Summer shows featuring DSO, Phil, Rat Dog, JGB/Melvin,
Donna-Jean, etc., etc., and weıre charging $7 for this event. For over
10 years we kept Nickieıs Dead Night less than other events @ $5, but
with all the extra things we now offer, it is no longer possible. This
was a tough decision for us, but we still feel we're offering an
excellent night of De[a]dicated entertainment at a great value. And
we're still cheaper than sitting on your arse at a movie theater.

Dead Night can only happen if people show up. We only do this
periodically so please come out, shake yer bones, burn some calories,
meet some rock & roll legends and, most importantly...

³Support your local Dead Night!²

Doors at 8PM. Events start around 8:35 or so.

Many blessing to all!

LONDON STRUMS INTO SUMMER

We live in hope of the constant risk of snow fading away but musical
sunshine ahead is pretty much guaranteed by the upcoming London Guitar
Festival www.igf.org.uk <http://www.igf.org.uk/> which will
be held
in
early May at the South Bank Centre on the Thames. The various halls
within
the complex will be host to a stunning array of guitar stylists,
echoing the
great 'Guitar-in' show some forty years ago at which your correspondent

witnessed Bert Jansch, folkrock band Pentangle, flamenco genius Paco
Pena
and the Jimi Hendrix Experience, who scooted on and launched into
'Sergeant
Pepper' to wind up Paul McCartney, whose own band opted not to tour
their
landmark album. In 2008, the best in guitar stars can include Nino de
Pura's
flamenco ensemble, Luis Quintero the Venezuelan six string prince,
Nicolas
Meier fusing fusion and Turkish cadences, The Antonio Forcione Quartet
a
multi-national group of uncommon warmth and communicative skills and
Brit
pioneer Jason Carter whose travels have soaked into his fingerwork. Not
only
that, but former Stone, Bluesbreaker and Dylan cohort Mick Taylor will
perform with the fabulously soulful songsmith Terry Reid, veteran
drummer
Colin Allen and even it is rumoured, JHE original Mitch Mitchell. And
most
likely others ! This plus workshops by the likes of Lee Hodgson and
Andres
Garcia and inspiration for new and old players and listeners is there
for
the booking.

TALKIN' BOUT A REVOLUTION

For me, the Beatles notorious 'White Album' double record is the very
essence of sadness tinged with beauty and confusion. Four blokes
realising
that they were inevitably growing apart yet still (but not completely)
able
to make each other's works come to life resulting in maybe the most
patchy
big-seller of all time. Some of the tracks such as 'Something' were
awesome
enough even to step over Francis Albert Sinatra's renowned distaste for

Limey rock'n'rollers and make him record what might be the greatest
love
song of all. Others such as 'Happiness Is A Warm Gun' hardly add to the
the
Fab Four's reputation. A man with a view on all this and enough
inspiration
to write an excellent analytical book thereon is Brit writer David
Quantick.
He and others including Tot Taylor will be at The British Library's
Conference Centre early evening of 27th May for ' The Beatles White
Album
Forty Years On' to discuss this recorded work and what it means to fans

followers and anybody else. Offhand it's a little hard to think of a
more
'British' record (outside humourists The Bonzo Dog Doodah Band and
their
albums) than The White Album, given its inclusion of rock'n'roll,
balladry,
folkiness ('Dear Prudence') and yes, vaudeville. It could not have
originated in other countries, for better or worse in the way that
Zappa's
'We're Only In It For the Money' is so very American in its concept and

execution. Final thought outside of the sublime 'Rain', did Ringo
Starr
ever sound better than on his contributions here ?

Greetings and as previously anounced, this will be the first week of sending out my newsletters through gmail. Hopefuly it will reach everyone okay and that soon I can figure how to add color to the text as I had with yahoo.

Several people had responded to my gmail anouncement, but the emails were lost in a glitch. If you did write me and I did not answer, please email me again. Either to my gmail or yahoo address.

Also as it is getting closer to our moving probably somewhere within the Fiji-Nimbin Australia-Golden Bay area of New Zealand triangle, we have an agreement with our partners in Bali to sell the Villa Singa so as to finance our moving plans. It is privately owned and perfect for holidays, rental income, retirement, seminars, etc. If you know of anyone that might be interested, here is the website to check it out and then contact us: www.balivillasinga.com

QUOTES:



"Give me the liberty to know, to utter, and to argue freely according to conscience, above all liberties.": John Milton

=
"For those who stubbornly seek freedom, there can be no more urgent task than to come to understand the mechanisms and practices of indoctrination. These are easy to perceive in the totalitarian societies, much less so in the system of 'brainwashing under freedom' to which we are subjected and in which all too often we serve as unwilling instruments." Noam Chomsky

=
"Civil disobedience is not our problem. Our problem is civil obedience. Our problem is that numbers of people all over the world have obeyed the dictates of the leaders of their government and have gone to war, and millions have been killed because of this obedience. Our problem is that people are obedient all over the world in the face of poverty and starvation and stupidity, and war, and cruelty. Our problem is that people are obedient while the jails are full of petty thieves, and all the while the grand thieves are running and robbing the country. That's our problem.": Howard Zinn, from 'Failure to Quit'

=
"With numbing regularity good people were seen to knuckle under the demands of authority and perform actions that were callous and severe. Men who are in everyday life responsible and decent were seduced by the trappings of authority, by the control of their perceptions, and by the uncritical acceptance of the experimenter's definition of the situation, into performing harsh acts. A substantial proportion of people do what they are told to do, irrespective of the content of the act and without limitations of conscience, so long as they perceive that the command comes from a legitimate authority" Stanley Milgram, 1965




Going to church no more makes you a Christian than sleeping in your garage makes you a car.": Garrison Keiler

=
"Conquered states that have been accustomed to liberty and the government of their own laws can be held by the conqueror in three different ways. The first is to ruin them; the second, for the conqueror to go and reside there in person; and the third is to allow them to continue to live under their own laws, subject to a regular tribute, and to create in them a government of a few, who will keep the country friendly to the conqueror": Niccolo Machiavelli, The Prince

Glen Campbell covering U2 on new album

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The Rhinestone Cowboy is trying on some more
fashionable threads..

Country singer/guitarist Glen Campbell is following in the footsteps of
artists such as Johnny Cash and Neil Diamond by recording a new album
designed to inspire a new generation of fans.

"Meet Glen Campbell," due in stores on August 19, features covers of
tunes originally performed by the likes of the Foo Fighters ("Times
Like
These"), U2 ("All I Want Is You"), and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
("Walls"), his Capitol Records label said on Tuesday.

"I really like all of the songs and I had a great time recording them,"
Campbell, 72, said in a statement. "While I didn't write these songs,
this sounds like a Glen Campbell album, which is important to me."

Left-field covers include Green Day's "Gooiddance (Time Of Your
Life)," the Velvet Underground's "Jesus," and the Replacements' "Sadly
Beautiful."

No songs were written by Jimmy Webb, the man who gave Campbell such
'60s
hits as "Wichita Lineman" and "By the Time I Get to Phoenix." Campbell
has often talked about reuniting with the songwriter.

"Meet Glen Campbell" marks his first release for Capitol since 1993's
"Somebody Like That.." Campbell has largely eschewed recording in order
to focus on touring and playing to tourists at his theater in Branson,
Mo.

Grateful Dead archives going to UC Santa Cruz

Regan McMahon, San Francisco Chronicle Staff Writer

The Dead will live on at UC Santa Cruz, in a way.

On Friday, Bob Weir and Mickey Hart are scheduled to announce that the
archives of the legendary band - 30 years worth of correspondence,
business records, merchandise and memorabilia, including stage
backdrops, a large "Blues for Allah" stained-glass artwork a fan gave
the band in 1978 and some of the life-size skeletons of the band
members
for the 1987 "Touch of Grey" video shoot - will be donated to the UC
Santa Cruz archives. UC Santa Cruz Chancellor George Blumenthal is also
scheduled to be on hand for the announcement, which, appropriately
enough, will be made at the Fillmore in San Francisco, one of the most
storied venues in Bay Area music history.

Ellen Law is one of the reasons that much of this material still
exists.
She was a teenager in the San Francisco psychedelic ballroom scene when
the Grateful Dead first hit the stage in 1965. When she started working
for the band in 1972, she was put in charge of Dead Heads, the casually
formed fan club that came into being after the band invited its fans to
write to the address of a San Rafael post office box printed on its
1971
eponymous album (colloquially known as "Skull & Roses" for the artwork
that graced the cover). That opened the floodgates for a fan base whose
devotion was unprecedented and remains unmatched in the history of rock
'n' roll.

They sent in letters, postcards, Christmas cards, gifts and handmade
artwork. And Law, who worked for the band for the next 34 years, saved
everything.

She also kept press clippings dating back to the band's inception in
'65, photographs, tickets, back stage passes, handbills, promotional
materials, business records, stage backdrops, posters, T-shirts and
other Grateful Dead merchandise, issues of the band's erratically
published '70s newsletter and the more regularly published Grateful
Dead
Almanac that began in the '90s, copies of all the band's posters, vinyl
albums, CDs, videos, all the awards and the books written about the
band, show files, cassette tapes of the hot line messages announcing
tour dates, publishing information, thousands of fan-decorated
envelopes
mailed to the band's ticket office, even all the guest lists that went
to the venues the band played.

"I was just the person that never shredded," Law said in a phone
interview from her home in San Anselmo. "It started off in my little
closet," at the Dead's headquarters on Lincoln St. in San Rafael, "and
it kept growing and growing, and now it fills up a warehouse."

That's 2,000 square feet of a Marin warehouse, to be exact.

After the band ended following Jerry Garcia's death in 1995, the
surviving members kept the office open, then finally shut down
operations in the summer of 2006. In August that year they moved the
extensive vault of the band's musical recordings in four refrigerated
18-wheelers to Los Angeles, where it is maintained by Rhino Records,
which is licensed to release product from it. At that point, the
question arose of what to do with the archive.

Both UC Berkeley, where bassist Phil Lesh was once a student, and
Stanford, where his son now goes, made a pitch for it. But the Dead
members ultimately chose Santa Cruz.

The connections between the band and the university are long and deep.
They both came into existence at the same time, in the mid-'60s. Law's
son-in-law, Cameron Sears, former manager of the Grateful Dead and now
of Weir's band RatDog - is a UCSC alumnus, as is the daughter of Alan
Trist, head of the Grateful Dead's publishing company, Ice Nine. Santa
Cruz Music Professor Fred Lieberman has taught a class in the music of
the Grateful Dead for years and has collaborated with Dead drummer Hart
on two books. The campus radio station has a weekly show featuring the
band's music called "Dead Serious."

"I think it's a perfect fit for Santa Cruz - the ethos of the band, the
whole idea of community sharing, is really well matched with our
campus," said Christine Bunting, head of special collections for
McHenry
Library, which will house the archive.

"Our campus has a great music program, and we're really interested in
the study of American vernacular music and popular culture. We also
have
this whole side that's concerned with social justice and tolerance and
community spirit. And I think that fits so perfectly with what the band
has done and what the Dead Heads have sustained over the years."

McHenry, the university's main library, is currently closed for
renovation and expansion. When it reopens in fall 2009, it will have a
reading room dedicated to the archive, tentatively named Dead Central,
which will be located right at the library entrance. The room will
feature music playing and exhibitions of material from the archive, to
be curated by Bunting, who, while she doesn't call herself a Dead Head,
said she saw the band live several times and their music "helped me get
through high school." She said Dead Central will be a place for fans
and
researchers alike to use as a resource, and she hopes to make as much
of
it as possible available online.

The archive's advisory board - dubbed Slugs & Roses, a blend of the
university's banana slug mascot and the Dead's floral icon - includes
Nion McEvoy, chairman and CEO of Chronicle Books, who also got his
undergraduate degree from UCSC, and Bill Watkins, CEO of Seagate
Technology, a major U.S. manufacturer of computer hard drives, who has
committed in-kind technical support.

The library already has the archive of science fiction writer Robert A.
Heinlein, Beat poet, painter and novelist Kenneth Patchen and the only
intact collection of photographer Edward Weston's project prints in the
world, according to Bunting. But this is the biggest archive the
university has acquired.

It contains historic documents, such as the band's first recording
contract, with Warner Bros. Records, and notes from band's weekly
meetings. "That's really exciting," said Bunting, "because that's the
kind of primary material that shows what their decisions were are the
time they were making them." She said business files on the band's
concerts contain "the contracts and tickets and box office receipts and
the guest lists and itineraries. You see the progression from all the
concerts and tours."

But the most interesting aspect of the archive, she said, is "the whole
Dead Head side to it. The band's following is a phenomenon in itself."

How does Law feel about letting go of the archive she tended all those
years?

"It's like sending your kids off to college: Oh, they're leaving home!
That's what it feels like, even though now I know it will be preserved
and well taken care of. It's another stage of development."

Soul Legend Al Wilson Dies At 68

Al Wilson, a soul singer and songwriter who had a number of 1970s hits,
including "Show and Tell," has died. He was 68.

Wilson died Monday of kidney failure at Kaiser Permanente Medical
Center
in Fontana, according to his son, Tony Wilson of Yucaipa.

"He was always singing," his son said. "He would call me in the middle
of the night with a new song that he had written."

Wilson was born on June 19, 1939, in Meridian, Miss. He sang in the
church choir as a boy and had his own spiritual singing quartet. His
family moved to San Bernardino in 1958 and he found work as a mail
carrier, office clerk and janitor.

He toured for four years with the group Johnny "Legs" Harris and the
Statesmen before joining the Navy. Following a two-year stint, he moved
to Los Angeles and played with the Jewels and their successor group,
the
Rollers. A drummer, he also worked with the instrumental group the
Souls.

In 1966, he was spotted by manager Marc Gordon, who introduced him to
singer Johnny Rivers, who signed him to his Soul City label. Wilson's
first single, "The Snake" in 1968, was a hit and was followed by "Do
What You Gotta Do." "Show and Tell" was released in 1973 and the next
year was No. 1.

Wilson charted with several other 1970s singles, including "La La Peace
Song," "I've Got a Feeling (We'll Be Seeing Each Other Again)" and
"Count the Days."

In later years he continued to tour clubs in Los Angeles and elsewhere.

In addition to his son, Wilson is survived by his wife, Patricia;
daughters Alene Harris and Sharon Burley; a brother, Eddie Wilson;
sisters Lottie Ross, Ruby Conyers and Maebell Cole, and 13
grandchildren.

Services were scheduled April 29 at Mount Zion Baptist Church in San
Bernardino, followed by burial at Riverside National Cemetery.

JIMI HENDRIX SEX TAPE The New York Times is reporting that the adult
film company Vivid Entertainment is releasing a sex tape, supposedly
starring rock legend Jimi Hendrix. The film shows ³Hendrix² wearing a
bandana around his signature afro and having sex with two brunette
women. It is very hard to see if it is him or not, with his full face
appearing on screen for only a few seconds and there only being subtle
flashes of his profile. There is no audio with the tape. Hendrix
passed
away in 1970 and his cause of death is still not entirely known.

ROGER WATERSı LOST PIG If you know anyone in California whoıs spotted a
two-story tall pig, they could have ten-thousand dollars coming their
way. Thatıs because organizers of the Coachella festival are offering

return
of Roger Watersı giant pig inflatable which broke free and floated away
during his set at the event last Sunday. Anyone with information is
asked to email LostPig@Coachella.com.




STEVE WINWOOD IS CONSISTENT If Steve Winwood is anything, it is
consistent. The singerıs latest album, Nine Lives, is out now and in
it, he sticks with the musical tastes he grew up with. Steve
explained.

(Actuality #2) ³From my musical maturity, which was kind of in my late
teens when I probably figured out exactly what I wanted to do, I think
there has been a thread thatıs gone all the way through.²

You can buy Nine Lives now and starting on May 30th, Winwood kicks off
a
tour with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.




ONO SUES FILMMAKERS FOR USING ³IMAGINE² Expelled: No Intelligence
Allowed, the pro-creationist film starring Ben Stein, uses a portion of
the John Lennon song ³Imagine.² The problem is, they werenıt
authorized
to include it and now, Yoko Ono has filed suit against the filmmakers,
alleging that the song wasnıt licensed. Ono, her family and publisher
EMI are seeking unspecified damages and demanding that the track is
removed from the movie. According to ThePlaylist.Blogspot.com,
producers for the flick feel that it is a first amendment issue and
stated, ³We are disappointed therefore that Yoko Ono and others have
decided to challenge our free speech right to comment on the song
ŒImagineı in our documentary film.² The case will be heard in U-S
District Court in Manhattan.

McCARTNEY TO PLAY FREE SHOW IN UKRAINE Paul McCartney plans to play for
hundreds of thousands of fans at Independence Square in Kiev, Ukraine
in
June. The free show has been dubbed the Independence Concert and looks
to bring people of different ethnicities, religions, political
preferences and geopolitical orientations together around the ideas of
peace, love and unity. The show, which will be broadcast live across
the county, also seeks to strengthen the confidence and understanding
in
the Ukrainian society.. The Independence Concert takes place on June
14th.


MICK JAGGER DOESNıT KNOW WHERE HEıS GOING Concert movies arenıt as easy
to film as they may look. The director has to have an idea of what to
record, but the artists still want to roam the stage freely. That
exact
situation was an issue that came up with Mick Jagger and Martin
Scorsese, who was at the helm for the Rolling Stones rock-umentary
Shine
a Light. Jagger explained the difficulties.

(Actuality #1) ³He asked me this question, he was like, ŒSo in the
second number, where are you gonna be? Which exact part of the stage
you
gonna be for my lighting plot and my camera plot and everything else?ı
I
said, ŒMarty, it donıt really work like that. I donıt know where Iım
gonna be. If you want me to do something, you tell me and Iıll do it,
but I canıt tell you, I donıt have a choreographed plot of each number,
Iım going be on line three, Iım going to be on this square on the
stage,
itıs not a ballet.ı²

Check out Shine a Light to find out where exactly Mick decided to
stand.
Itıs in theaters now.


VIDEO OF JOHN LENNON AT CENTER OF COURT BATTLE A video that shows John
Lennon smoking pot, writing songs and talking about putting LSD in
Richard Nixonıs tea will be at the center of a court case next week.
World Wide Video, which claims ownership of the nine hours of raw
footage, wants to release some of it as a two-hour film called 3 Days
in
the Life, yet Lennonıs widow, Yoko Ono, asserts copyright ownership of
the tapes. The footage, which also includes Lennon composing
³Remember²
and ³Mind Games² and discussing his drug use, was shot in 1970 just
before The Beatles broke up. Rolling Stone referred to the recordings
as ³awesome John Lennon footage you might never see.² It turns out the
footage was actually taped by Onoıs ex-husband, Anthony Cox, for a
documentary he planned titled Portrait. World Wide Video attest they
bought all 24 original videotapes and the copyrights from Cox in 1969
and they have filed a suit against Ono for copyright infringement. The
court will decide whether the video should be made public or not.

DID ELVIS GO TO ENGLAND? Many people believe that Elvis Presley never
set foot in England, however, according to new reports, The King very
well may have gone overseas. Bill Kenwright, a longtime friend of
British entertainer Tommy Steele, explained to the BBC Radio that Elvis
came to London with Steele in 1958. Kenwright said, point blank:
³Elvis
came to England! Tommy showed him round London. One night, Tommy got
a
phone call [from Presley]. They talked and they got a friendship
(going).² Kenwright added, ³Elvis flew in for a day and Tommy showed
him round London. They spent a day together, Tommy took him round and
showed him round the House of Parliament.²




KEITH RICHARDSı GUITAR MUSEUM? During Keith Richardsı lifetime, he has
collected over three-thousand guitars and now the Rolling Stones
guitarist wants to open a museum to house them and show them off.
According to MonstersAndCritics.com, Richards explained, ³Iıve probably
got too many. I have three-thousand guitars and only one pair of hands.

Itıs an incredible collection of beautiful instruments but I only play
about ten of them, and guitars have to be played. Maybe I will give
them away or make a museum.² It turns out that many of the guitars
Keith owns were given to him as gifts, which surprises the rocker, who
revealed, ³I donıt know what Iıve done to deserve that. Iıve been one
of the biggest a**holes in the world.² Richards has already started
giving guitars out. In Shine a Light, the recent Martin Scorsese
directed documentary about the band, Keith gives his guitar to Blues
legend Buddy Guy. That flick is in theaters now.

Some Allman news

In the early 1970s, an 18-room, turn-of-the-century Tudor-style mansion
on Vineville Avenue in Macon, Georgia, known as The Big House, served
as
the center of the universe for the members of the Allman Brothers Band,
their families, road crew, friends and wayward fellow travelers. Within
the walls of The Big House, timeless songs were written, romances
blossomed, children were reared and parties were thrown. During the
years in The Big House, the Allman Brothers Band established themselves
as the premiere live performance group in rock music.

The role of The Big House in the making of the legendary band is
explored in the documentary Please Call Home: The Big House Years. This
100-minute documentary will debut in New York City on Friday, May 16,
2008, at the historic Hudson Theatre located at 145 W. 44th Street, an
ornate 700-seat theater in the heart of Times Square. The screening of
the documentary will begin at 8:30 p.m. Attending the premiere will be
the filmmakers and the entire production team from Macon, Georgiaıs
Bright Blue Sky Productions, officers of The Big House Foundation plus
various band members and other distinguished guests.

³This is not a comprehensive biography of the band per se, but rather
an
intimate look at the family that was this band,² states Director Kirk
West, who has served as the Allman Brothers Band Tour Manager since
1989
and lived in The Big House with his wife Kirsten from 1993 to 2007. The
film explores the making of the band, some of its most successful
songs,
its big breaks and darkest hours faced by the band members with the
death of Duane Allman and Berry Oakley. "What it really talks about is
the life of a family in a particular house for three years,² said West,
³and in the story of this band, that is an amazing three years.²

Two levels of tickets will be available. VIP Tickets will be $100 per
person (a portion of which is tax deductible) and will include a
cocktail reception from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m., preferred seating for the
screening and guests will receive a special gift bag which will include
a copy of an extended version of the Please Call Home DVD. General
Admission Tickets for the screening only will be sold for $25 per
person
(a portion of which is tax deductible). To purchase tickets, please
email pchpremiere@aol.com.

For additional information, please contact: E.J. Devokaitis, The Big
House Foundation @ 478-973-6338

Proceeds from the premiere will benefit The Big House Foundation/The
Allman Brothers Band Museum, which is being developed in Macon Georgia
to preserve the home and history of the Allman Brothers Band. Scheduled
to open in April 2009, the interactive museum will house the worldıs
largest collection of Allman Brothers Band memorabilia.

FAIR HEARING Burdon / War

ERIC BURDON & WAR
Rolling Back The Year's at London's Royal Albert Hall
21st April 2008

A real trip back in the musical time machine, this. Thirty seven years
after they went their separate ways in the early Seventies, Newcastle
blues shouter Eric Burdon and atmospheric soundweavers War reconvened
and in many ways, it was as if the last few decades hadn't happened.
The band or what you should really term the current touring version
of
War, led as ever by smiling keyboard dude Lonnie Jordan had the look
of road haulage operatives meeting up at a favoured border cantina.
That
this was well thought-out evening was underlined by a splendid starter
of War hits.

Kicking off with guitar man Start Ziff's moody wahwah'd arpeggio of
'World is a Ghetto' this wonderful crew soon had feet tapping and heads
swaying, largely due to the drums and percussion pairing of Salvador
Rodriguez and Marcos Reyes. Often driving but at other times gently
tinkling and tapping, these two make every player on the stage sound
fabulous. Francisco Tomaselli's meaty bass pretty much evoked the B B
Dickerson original lines powering 'Cisco Kid' and the perennial mover
'Low Rider', cheeky stop/start cowbell intro et al.. This number
prompted
an enthusiastic audience member in Row D just in front of us to leap to
his feat and throw out frug-style dance moves, much to the delight of
other punters and earning him a brief bounce onto the stage with an
amused band making the most of the moment.

Notwithstanding Fernando Harkless' sublime sax and flute forays and the
hard-driven harp riffs of Mitch Kashmar, the most distinctive trademark
of War is when these two combine as on 'Spill the Wine'. This
collection plus a good natured 'Why Can't We Be Friends' and you could
hardly fault the start of this show, good sound balance too and nice
conducting from Jordan. Burdon's approach to the show was to put his
head in Fillmore mode and freewheel. He sang, he pleaded, he growled
and
he reminisced. Whether you like his voice or not, this singer and band
are as complementary as Neil Young and Crazy Horse or the terrific
linking of Dylan and Tom Petty's crew. Much of what Eric produced here
was deep blues with soul seasoning. Stepping on the stage to a roaring
welcome during the cool latin tread of 'Spill The Wine', Burdon did his
thing and encouraged the band to groove and solo. Yes, a throwback show
I suppose but such a contrast to more recent 'I'm the star and you
remember your place' antics of Simply Red and the like. The version of
'Spirit' was worth the trip alone, a quite brilliant rendition. The
Roland Kirk tribute was almost spat out, in a confusion of tone
colours.
'Tobacco Road' as it always did, almost disappeared up its own
fundament. Burdon remembered watching Memphis Slim in a Paris bar when
Eric was 17as he sauntered into 'Mother Earth' ( probably the same
effect that seeing Howlin' Wolf had on me at the same age....) and on
this song the band solo'd with the ESP of veteran players, none more so
than Ziff who when he wants to sounds uncannily like the late Mike
Bloomfield I suspect he purloined the Butterfield axeman's DNA, to
sound this close.

A boogie intro to 'Bare Back Ride' moved the crowd whilst 'Paint it
Black' went onto its own universe and back again. Some of the
audience
were surprised to find the acoustic guitar scrubbing morph into an
edgily paced 'House Of the Rising Sun', Burdon reclaimed the song from
a
thousand bar bands with ease.

For this writer, it is the way that the players in War know when to
play
and when to hold back that made this celebration show special and maybe
only the optimum lineup of Little Feat could present a show quite this
way. Nothing to prove, y'see

QUOTES:





For those who stubbornly seek freedom, there can be no more urgent task than to come to understand the mechanisms and practices of indoctrination. These are easy to perceive in the totalitarian societies, much less so in the system of 'brainwashing under freedom' to which we are subjected and in which all too often we serve as unwilling instruments. Noam Chomsky

=
The press is our chief ideological weapon. Nikita Khrushchev former Russian head of State, Communist Party Chairman

=
The result has been that an increasingly authoritarian agenda has been sold to the American people by a massive, multi-tentacled media machine that has become, for all intents and purposes, a propaganda organ of the state. David McGowan

=
Although this science will be dilligently studied, it will be rightly confined to the governing class and the populace will not be allowed to know how its convictions were generated...education should aim at destroying free will, so that, after pupils have left school, they will be incapable...of thinking or acting otherwise than their schoolmaster would have wished
Bertrand Russell



"The first step in a fascist movement is the combination under an energetic leader of a number of men who possess more than the average share of leisure, brutality, and stupidity. The next step is to fascinate fools and muzzle the intelligent, by emotional excitement on the one hand and terrorism on the other." Bertrand Russell: Freedom, Harcourt Brace, 1940

===
"Most of the greatest evils that man has inflicted upon man have come through people feeling quite certain about something which, in fact, was false." : Bertrand Russell

===
"Dogma demands authority, rather than intelligent thought, as the source of opinion; it requires persecution of heretics and hostility to unbelievers; it asks of its disciples that they should inhibit natural kindliness in favor of systematic hatred" - Bertrand Russell, Unpopular essays

===
"Unhappy events abroad have retaught us two simple truths about the liberty of a democratic people. The first truth is that the liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of a private power to a point where it becomes stronger than the democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism - ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power.......... FDR: message to Congress proposing the monopoly investigation, 1938

===
"Philosophy should always know that indifference is a militant thing. It batters down the walls of cities and murders the women and children amid the flames and the purloining of altar vessels.......... When it goes away it leaves smoking ruins, where lie citizens bayonetted through the throat. It is not a children's pastime like mere highway robbery." : Stephen Crane


"The people are the ultimate guardians of their own liberties. In every government on earth is some trace of human weakness, some germ of corruption and degeneracy. Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone." - Thomas Jefferson

===
"The world is a dangerous place to live, not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it." - Albert Einstein



"This business of burning human beings with napalm, of filling our nation's homes with orphans and widows, of injecting poisonous drugs of hate into veins of peoples normally humane, of sending men home from dark and bloody battlefields physically handicapped and psychologically deranged, cannot be reconciled with wisdom, justice and love: Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.

"The essence of oligarchical rule is not father-to-son inheritance, but the persistence of a certain world-view and a certain way of life ... A ruling group is a ruling group so long as it can nominate its successors... Who wields power is not important, provided that the hierarchical structure remains always the same.": George Orwell, 1984



Why is this man in the White House? The majority of Americans did not vote for him. Why is he there? And I tell you this morning that he's in the White House because God put him there for a time such as this": Lt Gen William Boykin, speaking of G. W. Bush, New York Times, 17 October 2003

PUNMASTER MUSIC NEWS:


Nicol Kidman will play Dusty Springfield in a forthcoming biopic.

The Ocar-winning Australian actress will play the 60s pop icon in the
moviewhich will document Dusty's troubled life, which included problems
with drugs and alcohol, and mental health issues.

The 'Son of a Preacher Man' singer was also secretly bisexual in a time
when it was taboo.

Michael Cunningham, writer of 'The Hours', for which Kidman won her
Oscar, is working on the screenplay for the film, and has vowed not to
shy away from the controversial aspects of Dusty's life.

Cunningham said: 'Dusty was a great artist who no one knew what to do
with. But she is clearly going into history with the Beatles and the
Rolling Stones.'

Dusty - whose hits include 'You Don't Have to Say You Love Me' and 'I
Only Want to Be With You' - died in 1999, aged 59, after losing her
battle against breast cancer.

Tina Turner Is Out Of Retirement

by Paul Cashmere

It looks like performing at the Grammy Awards earlier this year was all
it required to inspire Tina Turner to get back to work. The Queen of
R&B
will start her first post-retirement tour in Kansas City in October.

Tina will make the official announcement for the tour this week on
Oprah, but the show to air May 12 was recorded last week in Las Vegas.

The show was shot in front of an audience of 4,000 so the news is not
really a secret.

The now 68-year-old Tina Turner retired after her last tour in 2000.
The
Queen went out of top with the highest grossing tour of that year.

Tina originally made her name with former husband Ike in the Ike and
Tina Turner Revue. They scored global hits with 'Nutbush City Limits'
and a soul version of Credence Clearwater Revivals 'Proud Mary'.

After suffering beatings from her husband, the couple divorced in 1978.

In 1984, Tina revived her career as a solo artist with the massive hit
'Private Dancer'. She won Recor of the Year for 'What's Lve Got To Do
With It' at the Grammy Awards the followig year.

The 80s placed Tina in the superstar category. The hits tat flowed
included 'Let's Stay Together','We Don't Need Another Hero', 'Show Some
Respect', 'Better Be Good To Me' and 'Steamy Windows'.

Tina recorded duets with David Bowie, Rod Stewart, Bryan Adams and
Australia, Jimmy Barnes. With Barnes, she re-recorded her classic 'The
Best' for a TV commercial for football.

Details of the tour will be known after May 12.

FBI agent claims Sonny Bono was murdered

New accusations emerge over Cher's husband's death

A former FBI agent has claimed that 1960s pop star Sonny Bono was
assassinated.

Ted Gunderson said that Cher's former husband was targeted in a
politically-motivated assassination in January 1998.

However, Bono's autopsy concluded that he died of injuries sustained
after crashing into a tree while skiing at the Heavenly Ski Resort in
Nevada............

"It's nonsense for anyone to now try to suggest that Bono died after
crashing into a tree," Gunderson told America's Globe.

"There's zero evidence in this autopsy report to show such an accident
happened.. Instead, there's powerful proof he was assassinated.

"This was an evil plot that was carried out to almost perfection by
ruthless assassins."

Gunderson said hitmen hired by top US officials moved in on him because
Bono - a member of the US House Of Representatives - was believed to be
about to expose an international drug and weapons ring.

His claims are reportedly backed by several top forensic experts.

BEATLES, JAGGER TOOK INTEREST IN CLOCKWORK ORANGE Many things made A
Clockwork Orange the memorable film that it was. Stanley Kubrickıs
direction, Malcolm McDowellıs portrayal of the psychotic criminal
³Alex²
and the disturbing images in the movie certainly helped, but it turns
out that the flick could have even found a place in rock history.
Thatıs because according to a letter from the filmıs executive
producer,
Mick Jagger wanted to star in the film and The Beatles were even
interested in doing the score for the movie. Gigwise.com reports that
in a note producer Si Litvinoff wrote to potential director John
Schlesinger, Si reveals that the Rolling Stone wanted the lead role and
that ³The Beatles love the project.² Schlesinger passed on the film
because he wasnıt sure if it was ³the sort of subject I particularly
want to tackle.² Things seem to have worked out though - in 1972, A
Clockwork Orange was nominated for the Oscar for Best Picture as well
as
Best Director for Kubrick.

SPRINGSTEEN, SINATRA IN NJ HALL OF FAME It turns out Bruce Springsteen
and Frank Sinatra have something in common with the likes of Thomas
Edison and Albert Einstein.... They all lived in New Jersey. The figures
are among the first 15 people to be inducted into New Jerseyıs new Hall
of Fame. According to the Associated Press, for now, the Hall of Fame
only exists as a virtual entity, but officials are raising money for a
permanent museum. All of those chosen to join the Hall were selected
through an online vote after 25 finalists were announced in 2006. To
be
eligible, a person must have lived in the state for at least five
years.
Other inductees include Yogi Berra, Meryl Streep, Buzz Aldrin, General
Norman Schwarzkopf, Toni Morrison and Vince Lombardi. For more

HENDRIXı BROTHER SAYS ITıS NOT JIMI IN SEX TAPE Last week, Vivid
Entertainment released what they claimed was a Jimi Hendrix sex tape.
Experience Hendrix, the company that controls rights to the legendary
guitaristıs music and likeness, already came out questioning the
authenticity of the nearly 40-year-old film footage and now, Jimiıs
brother is speaking out against the tape as well. Leon Hendrix issued
a
statement that reads, ³The person in that film is not Jimi from what I
have heard. Yes, he had many female fans during that time and some may
have been filmed. But this one is not Jimi Hendrix.²

TOM WAITSı MOCK PRESS CONFERENCE On his official Web site, Tom Waits
posted a video of a press conference in which he answers reportersı
questions about his upcoming tour. In the clip, after joking with the
press, the singer explains that he got the inspiration for the tour
from
the sky and the heavens, then pulls down a map to show how the path he
plans to take this summer as he treks from Phoenix to Atlanta, is
nearly
identical to the constellation Hydra. Waits also goes on to describe
the acronym that is created with the first letter of each city he plans
to stop in. Sound a little fishy? Well, it turns out the entire press
conference was a fake. At the end of the video, Waits takes a needle
off a record player and the murmur of reporters is silenced. He then
walks off stage as the camera pulls back to reveal an empty auditorium.
See for yourself at TomWaits.com. Meanwhile, Waits tour kicks off on
June 17th.

LOU REED'S BERLIN When Lou Reed's rock opera, Berlin, was first
released
in 1973, it was called one of the most depressing albums ever made.
Sales were horrible and reviews were mixed, but Julian Schnabel, the
Academy Award nominated director of The Diving Bell and the Butterfly,
always loved the album's power and passion. Thirty-three years after
the album's original release, he and Reed collaborated to stage and
document the first performances of the album in decades. The resulting
film, which incorporates footage shot by Schnabel, his daughter and his
brother-in-law, is a dreamy and intense collage of images and songs. A
screening of the flick held at the Tribeca Film Festival on Sunday was
practically a family reunion with many of Schnabel and Reed's friends
and collaborators present. During a post-show Q & A, Reed and Schnabel
dismissed the idea of the album being depressing. If anything, Reed
felt uplifted by the joy of working with such close friends. Reed
added
that all art, just by being made, is inherently optimistic by nature.
This upcoming year, Lou Reed will perform Berlin throughout Europe. If
you're stuck Stateside, you can check out the movie, which opens in New
York and L-A in July.

FLICK SHOWS ALLMAN BROTHERSı TIME IN THE BIG HOUSE There is an 18-room,
turn of the century Tudor-style mansion in Macon, Georgia that might
just be a big house to some, but it means a lot more to the Allman
Brothers Band. Thatıs because in the early 1970ıs, the structure
served
as a home to members of the group as well as their families, the road
crew, friends and some wayward travelers. The place is appropriately
called The Big House and inside its walls, some timeless songs were
written and some big parties were thrown. Soon, fans can see just how
important The Big House was to the Allman Brothers thanks to a new
documentary. Itıs called Please Call Home: The Big House Years and the
100 minute movie was directed by the bandıs long-time tour manager Kirk
West, who lived in The Big House for 14 years. West spoke about the
film saying, ³This is not a comprehensive biography of the band per se,
but rather an intimate look at the family that was this band. What it
really talks about is the life of a family in a particular house for
three years and in the story of this band, that is an amazing three
years.² The documentary premieres in New York on May 16th. You can
see
a trailer for the film at PleaseCallHomeTheMovie.com.



ROD STEWARTıS SONıS LEGAL VICTORIES AND WOES Rod Stewartıs son, Sean,
had some charges against him dropped last week. The 27-year-old was
accused of punching and throwing bricks at two people last year after
getting into a dispute on a narrow road. According to the Associated
Press, the situation arose on a tiny Hollywood street when Stewart
couldnıt pass a truck. Bystanders began throwing things at the truck
when Stewart got out of his car. He was accused of taking part in the
violence and charged with assault with a deadly weapon. Seanıs lawyer
said, ³Over the course of time, it became apparent to the district
attorneyıs office that it may have been mistaken identity. There were
a
lot of people on the street at the time and he was a recognizable
face.²
While a judge threw that case out, Stewart still faces a lawsuit from
the owners of the truck as well as one stemming from a different
incident in which a man claims Sean broke his nose in a Hollywood
nightclub in 2006.

DAVE STEWART TO TAKE PART IN PANGEA DAY On Saturday, the world is set

America, England, India, Rwanda and Brazil. Dave Stewart is scheduled
to perform for the event and is pretty excited about it. He said in a
statement, ³I think the idea of Pangea Day is quite revolutionary and
is
a sign of bigger things to come.² You can watch the Pangea Day

LEAD BELLYıS HARD LIFE Folk and blues musician Lead Belly influenced

unearthed FBI records on display in a new book called Lead Belly: A
Life
in Pictures, reveal that the ³Goodnight Irene² singer was whipped while
doing time in a Louisiana prison, once getting ten lashes for
³laziness.² In 1934, Lead Belly was pardoned and settled in New York.
His songs have been covered by people from Frank Sinatra to Jimmy
Buffett.. Lead Belly: A Life In Pictures is out now.



STING IS DEDICATED TO HELPING THE RAINFOREST This Thursday, big-name
stars such as Billy Joel, Brian Wilson and James Taylor will be coming
out for a benefit in support of Stingıs Rainforest Foundation. Unlike
the fleeting do-gooder interests of most celebs, Sting and his wife,
Trudie Styler, devote serious energy to their environmental charity.

(Actuality #1) ³You cannot just say Iım now going to save the
rainforest, you have to save bits of it and hopefully that idea will
take on. And it kind of has, I mean weıve raised 25-million dollars
over
the past 20 years, weıre now on four continents, weıre in Asia, Africa
Central and South America and were creating legal infrastructures,
allowing indigenous people to protect themselves.²

By way of thanking Sting for all his hard work towards saving their
precious natural resources, scientists have named a South American tree
frog after him. The dendrosophus stingi can be found in the heavily
degraded forests of Colombia.

JON ANDERSON TALKS ABOUT NEW YES Yes is currently working on new
material, but donıt expect it to sound like their old stuff. Singer
Jon
Anderson told Billboard.com that the group is currently working on four
opus-like songs noting, ³Theyıre very, very different. Itıll be
interesting when we perform them, because we know that we want to try
and perform them in a unique fashion.² But the upcoming disc wonıt be
all lengthy pieces. Anderson added, ³Putting together an album really
isnıt logical anymore. Putting together a large piece of music or
something that is really a jump in a musical direction takes a lot of
commitment from everybody.² Anderson even revealed that heıd be up for
reunited the Yes lineup that created the hugely successful 1983 album
90125 as well as 1987ıs Big Generator and Œ94ıs Talk. Jon is thinking
about touring some of that Œ80s-period music ³because it was very
special.² Meanwhile, Yes is gearing up for their 40th anniversary
tour
which kicks off on July 12th in Quebec City, Canada.



ROGER WATERSı PIG FOUND Roger Waters can rest easy his pig has been
found. After the former Pink Floyd bassistıs giant inflatable pig got
loose and floated away at last weekendıs Coachella festival, the rocker
issued a reward for the return of the two-story tall balloon. Now,
Susan Stolz might be the recipient of ten-thousand dollars and four
lifetime passes to Coachella for finding the deflated pig. According
to
The Desert Sun, Stolz returned to her home in La Quinta, California,
over seven miles from where Coachella was held, and found a glob of
vinyl in her drive way. She threw it away but later read about the
missing pig and e-mailed the festival organizers. Stolz wrote, ³It is
entirely possible that I have at least part of your pigŠIt has some
blue, yellow and silver paint. I must warn you that it is not in good
shape. Maybe the balloon exploded or something.² Stolz removed the
pig
from the trash and stashed it in her garage. No word on if it will
ever
inflate again.

Mountain Girl's e-mail on the passing of Dr. Hoffman

(copied from the JamBase comments on their article about Dr. Hoffman's
crossing over...)


Dr. Hofmann has done more for mankind than any President!

Mountain Girl summed it up for me:

Dear dear man, a ball of energy, and so useful and kind to spirited
people, and women, and all of us, sadly, he's gone.

I was fortunate that he lived long enough for me to meet him, he kindly
invited me up to his house, just 4 weeks ago. March 24th. Life has some
twists and I caught one. Sad, but good. At 102, yes.

I had given a speech at the World Psychedelic Forum in Basel, home of
historic medieval alchemists, over the weekend, and was honored to be
asked to meet the great wizard himself. It was a lovely ride up into
the
hills, going from Easter flowery spring, to howling winter in a few
klicks. His house perches over a great fall of fields down to France on
one side, and back to solid snowy Switzerland on the other. It's a a
concrete flat-roofed modern home, not large, set with cherry trees and
swaying alpine firs, pasted with ice.

His dear wife had just passed away around Christmas, after a long
illness, and you could see how hard it had been for him, that he'd been
through a terrible ordeal.

He was so sweet to me, chatted and joked about musicians and black
market LSD, chocolate and cherry trees, instructed me very seriously
about the importance of hanging upside down every day, to improve the
blood flow to the brain.. The snow flying outside, I sat on the warm
polished wood bench by the window and he sat in a small ornate chair,
with an ornate brocaded footstool. We compared chocolates. His old
friend Juri Styk brought along some little cakes which we split up but
no one touched, as the German language flew past me for the most part.
Dr, Hoffman kindly translated. They were discussing whether Sandoz
would
allow other chemical companies to make some LSD for the new studies
being conducted in Europe. Important studies, on LSD and dying, cancer
pain relief and spiritual psychological benefits of it's use for
rebalancing people in crisis. Long overdue, they said.

I asked him about purification of LSD, wasn't it a long process? He
denied it vigorously, saying " LSD is very easy to make, you just do
the
recipe and if it crystallizes, that is it, it's done and very pure. No
need to do anything else. " And then launched in to a rapid exchange in
German with his lovely daughter sitting on the couch, a petite elegant
mother of two paying very close attention to her father. ( Juri later
told me it was about Dr. Hofmanns eldest son, who had rejected LSD all
his life till just recently, and then absolutely loved it and wanted
more.

!)

I wish my German had been better, I could have spoken to him more
easily. His English was excellent, anyhow, and I told him a little
about
the Grateful Dead, and he lit up and said he had always been hearing
about them, they played existential music, yes? And from small
beginnings, it got large? With the help of LSD, the energy and
telepathic melting together as they played... he understood that........... He
asked about Jerry. And Juri reminded him about the Acid Tests, and he
lit up again and said "Oh yes, the Acid Tests. and the Grateful Dead
played there long ago?, and you were there? " And I smiled, yes, and
pulled out the Acid Test diploma I had made for him.

I presented it in the usual fashion, saying that he had proven beyond
doubt that he had fulfilled all the requirements and had certainly
passed the Acid Test, and had earned this Acid Test diploma!

He took it and tried to read the PaulFoster decorations, and then had
me
sign it, with both my names, and date it. He said it was no good unless
I signed it. I took a picture of him holding it up. He was really
delighted! Not just being polite, either, but actually giggling.

Dr. H. bragged proudly that he now had three women to look after him.
And he hoped they wouldn't argue about him.

And then it was over, and we stood up, and Dr....... Hofmann staggered ,
almost fell as he got to his feet, and I steadied him up.... He must have
weighed about 85 pounds, so small and light.. And perfectly mannered,
took my arm and walked me to the door. Juri took a final picture of him
with my camera, and the doctor smiled and asked me to come back, and
bring the sun please. The wind whipping the snow out of the trees as
silent puffs of feathers. The walkway to the car was thick with ice. A
few cat tracks showed the way. I didn't get to meet the cat, who sleeps
on the doctor's bed since his wife passed away......

Now wheres the cat sleeping tonight?

I had been thinking hard yesterday and today, about getting this
meeting
all written down, as the conversation ran to many topics in my short
hour or so with him.. I wrote a couple of letters to friends today,
about
my visit with the great man, and didn't realize he was dying today.
Chances sometimes only come once, and I'm so glad I took this one. I'm
really sad, mostly for myself.. Wanting more, not to be.

All my love to my dear, living friends, MG









Paul McCartney To Give Away Album

by Paul Cashmere

Sir Paul McCartney looks like copying Prince's idea of giving away an
album in a Sunday newspaper.

The former Beatle will giveaway a copy of his 'Memory Almost Full;'
album in the Sunday edition of the Daily Mail.

The giveaway will place 2 million copies of the album into UK homes.
The
album sold 100,000 in the UK.

McCartney released 'Memory Almost Full' last year exclusively through
Starbucks in the USA and via Universal Music for the rest of the world.

He is about to announce a world tour and the giveaway is strategically
placed to boost awareness of the news songs.

With radio no longer a viable source of exposure for new music and MTV
now just a reality TV channel, heritage artists like McCartney face an
uphill battle to get their new music heard.

That is compounded further when they want to go out live and perform
it.

McCartney is smart. He knows the buck is in the ticket these days and
the ticket is worth even bigger bucks when the audience knows all the
songs. By giving away the album, McCartney is insuring that he can
still
play his new songs and that the audience will go away happy.

Bob Dylan sketches to go on display

An exhibition of art by Bob Dylan is going on display for the first
time
in the UK.

The show will feature Dylan's drawings and sketches from periods on the
road between 1989 and 1992.

The musician's fans will also be able to see Dylan's paintings in The
Drawn Blank Series, which opens in June.

The singer's work is said to explore the experience of "dislocation and
the ceaseless confrontation with new faces" and places on tour.

The Halcyon Gallery, which is showing the work, said: "Feelings of
anonymity, transience, rootlessness and sometimes loneliness pervade
these representations of the people, objects and places that Dylan has
seen and drawn."

Gallery president Paul Green said: "This is an incredible opportunity
for viewing this powerful body of work which gives an insight into the
artist's soul and which have already been the subject of widespread
critical acclaim. "Halcyon Gallery is privileged to be hosting this
unique exhibition." The exhibition opens at the London gallery on June
14.

The first exhibition of Dylan's work opened in Germany last year.

Rod Stewart Plans R&B and Country Albums

by Paul Cashmere

Rod Stewart plans to move on from his Songbooks and go back to
recording
R&B and country.

The move is not at all unusual for the 63-year-old superstar. A lot of
the early Stewart recordings were based on both R&B and Country.

On 1971's 'Every Picture Tells A Story', (to this date still his
greatest album), Stewart covered The Temptations 'I Know I'm Losing
You'
and Tim Hardin's 'Reason To Believe'.

Other country songs covered by Rod include Bob Dylan's 'Girl From The
North Country' and Jerry Lee Lewis' 'What Made Milwaukee Famous'.

R&B songs given the Stewart flavour include 'Standing In The Shadow of
Love' and 'This Old Heart of Mine'.

Stewart's dilemma right now is that his label J Records doesn't want
him
to make a country album. "There's a Country and Western album I'd love
to do, although the record company doesn't want it," he told Reuters.
"We are still in the throes of talking about it. I very much doubt
whether we will get it done this year."

Stewart's last album was 'Still The SameŠ Great Rock Classics Of Our
Time' in 2006.

Joe Jackson Plays Abba To Zappa

by Paul Cashmere

When Joe Jackson told Undercover News this week that his fans can
expect
some unusual covers at his show he wasn't kidding. "From Abba to Frank
Zappa" he said, he wasn't kidding..

Jackson is finishing up his American tour before heading to Australia
next week.

On the US tour, he has performed Abba's 'Knowing Me Knowing You' and
Frank Zappa's 'Dirty Love'.

When I spoke with Jackson on the phone from San Francisco this week he
warned that his setlist "will be old stuff, new stuff and some
surprises. You've got to have the surprises or why bother going to the
show. You might as well just stay at home and listen to the album. We
do
some pretty weird covers. Some of them are almost perverse".

He wouldn't say in the interview what the covers were, except to say,
"I
can tell you that we go from A-Z. Abba to Frank Zappa".

The Abba and the Zappa were both performed only last week in Seattle.
He
played David Bowie's 'Scary Monsters' and Duke Ellington's 'Don't Get
Around Much Anymore' in Vancouver, The Beatles' 'Girl' in Dallas', Ian
Dury's 'Inbetweenies' in Atlanta, Steely Dan's 'Reeling In The Years'
in
Milwaukee and Suzanne Vega's 'Frank & Ava' in Kingston.

Jackson fans will get a good dose of the songs they know, as well.
'Steppin' Out', 'It's Different For Girls', 'One More Time' and 'Is She
Really Going Out With Him' makes the setlist each night.

'Real Men', 'Be My Number Two' and 'Breaking Us In Two' pop up at every
other show.

The Joe Jackson Australian tour dates are:

May 19, Tweed Heads, Twin Towers, May 20, Brisbane, Convention Centre,
May 22, Sydney, State Theatre, May 23, Sydney, State Theatre, May 27,
Melbourne, Palais, May 30, Perth, Riverside Theatre.

Hippiefest Unveils Summer Plans

By Mitchell Peters, L.A.

The third installment of Hippiefest will feature '60s acts Jack Bruce
of
Cream, Eric Burdon and the Animals, and The Turtles featuring Flo &
Eddie leading the lineup. The traveling festival begins July 11 at
Dodge
Theatre in Phoenix, and wraps Aug. 10 at the Pompano Beach Amphitheatre
in Pompano Beach, Fla.

Other acts appearing on various dates are Janis Ian, Bandfinger
featuring Joey Molland, Jonathan Edwards, Melanie, and former Hollies
member Terry Sylvester. Further information about the lineup is
available via hippiefest.net..

The 22-date tour -- produced by Toby Ludwig and Ron Hausfeld of Flower
Power Concerts, Inc. -- primarily visits theaters, amphitheaters and
casinos. Booking responsibilities for Hippiefest are handled by New
York-based talent agency Wenig-LaMonica Associates. Ticket prices range
from $25 to $75.

Now in its third year, the initial concept for Hippifest was to
"re-create the '60s generation," Ludwid tells Billboard.biz. "For years
I've been wanting to put out a socially [conscious] show, because our
times are similar to my childhood, which was in the '60s. There are so
many concerts out there that don't make a social statement."

To help bring social awareness issues to each concert, Ludwig and his
business partner Hausfeld have reached out to organizations like
Greenpeace and Get Out The Vote. The producers are also urging acts on
the bill to speak about parallels between the '60s and today. "It's
important to be aware of who we are and what we're doing as a country,"
Ludwig says. "Sometimes the best way to do it is through a concert
where
you have a lot of people together."

When putting together talent for the nostalgic traveling festival, "We
try and put the authentic groups out there, as opposed to just the name
of a group," Ludwig explains.. "There are a lot of groups now that you
can buy -- and I don't want to name names, because I don't feel getting
sued -- that don't have original singers or any original members."

Last year's Hippiefest celebrated the 40th anniversary of the 1967
"Summer of Love," and featured the Turtles, Felix Cavaliere's Rascals,
the Zombies, Mountain Mitch Ryder, Badfinger, Country Joe McDonald,
Iron
Butterfly, Denny Laine and Melanie. Some of the acts on the bill
performed at the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival and 1969 Woodstock.

Vegoose Producers Pull Plug On This Year's Fest

By Ray Waddell, Nashville

Las Vegas festival Vegoose will not happen in 2008, according to
Jonathan Mayers, president of Superfly Presents, co-producer of Vegoose
with A.C. Productions. "We're not going to do Vegoose this year,"
Mayers
tells Billboard.biz.

Mayers stops short of saying that Vegoose was permanently gone and says
that it may resurface in a different form. "We're not saying it's
killed, it's just not going to happen in 2008," he says. "Over the last
few years we've built some great relationships out there. We're really
studying the model out in Vegas as to what makes sense. I think there
is
a model out there to do other events in Vegas, it's just different."

Vegoose debuted in 2005 as a Halloween season, multi-venue music
festival, with headliners Dave Matthews Band, Jack Johnson, Beck, and
others performing at at Vegas' Sam Boyd Stadium. The first year grossed
$4.6 million with more than 72,000 attendance in 2005, but attendance
and revenues declined to just $2.2 million and 36,781 last year,
according to Billboard Boxscore.

"The first year we were actually really successful, the second and
third
years we weren't as much so," says Mayers. "Any time you do a show it
has its own unique challenges. We're going to continue to be aggressive
and try things, and some will be huge successes and other things may
not
be. We'll look at each one of those as they happen and make smart
decisions."

Superfly and A..C..... Productions also produce Bonnaroo in Manchester,
Tenn., the top-grossing festival in North America, set for June 12-15.
This year, Superfly and Another Planet Entertainment will launch the
Outside Lands festival at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco Aug. 22-24.

Steve Miller Band Celebrates 40 Years With 'Live' DVD

Gary Graff, Detroit

As the Steve Miller Band marks the 40th anniversary of the release of
its first two albums, it will release its first-ever DVD, "Live From
Chicago," a three-disc set due May 20.

The first disc contains live footage shot in July 2007 at Chicago's
Ravinia Amphitheater during a two-day stand. Disc two takes viewers on
a
tour of Chicago by way of a first-person documentary that traces Steve
Miller's Chicago blues roots, while the third disc provides bonus
footage from the Ravinia gigs.

Portions of the DVD will be broadcast on PBS as part of its spring and
summer fundraising drive.

Miller says he initially "wasn't very interested" in doing a concert
DVD
but was impressed by the previous work of director/producer Daniel E.
Catullo III and producer Jack Gulick.

"I was really pleasantly surprised by them and how much work they put
into it and what a great job they did," Miller says. "I think they
really captured the kind of joy and fun and happiness we have at our
concerts ... doing what we do without too much rock 'n' roll posing and
that kind of bullsh*t. It's a really good, straightforward
representation of who the Steve Miller Band is and what we do, period."

Miller and his band are also hoping to release new, blues-oriented
recordings shortly. Earlier this year, the group recorded more than
three dozen blues tunes on the soundstage at George Lucas' Skywalker
Ranch in northern California. The troupe was joined by Sonny Charles of
the Checkmates, who's now a full-fledged Steve Miller Band member, and
Miller tells Billboard.com he hopes to make the recordings available
sooner rather than later.

"I think I'm probably just gonna put them on my Web site and sell it
that way," says Miller, who's grouped the songs into three separate
albums. "I haven't figured it out yet, but I'm not too worried about
it.
I'm just gonna make sure everybody that wants to get it can get it."

Miller started the project with about 5,000 songs -- "Every blues
recording ever made," he says -- that he kept on a hard drive and
eventually whittled down to the final grouping, which was co-produced
by
Andy Johns. "It's such an amazing list of great material. It just makes
me laugh every time we put it on," says Miller, adding that the vast
majority are covers.

"There's a lot of Junior Parker tunes, 'Next Time You See Me,' a bunch
of Howlin' Wolf tunes, 'Who's Been Talkin',' some Delta blues stuff,
some John Lee Hooker things, some esoteric stuff, things that you
haven't heard in a long time, some Bo Diddley things like 'You Pretty
Thing'...It's just incredible what we have here."

Miller says he plans to trot many of those songs out in concert when
his
group hits the road for its annual summer tour, which kicks off May 24
in West Palm Beach, Fla., with Joe Cocker opening, and wraps up Aug. 17
in Murphys, Calif.

an historic show in Jersey.

For the first time ever, Springsteen performed both the 'Born To Run'
and 'Darkness On The Edge of Town' albums in there entirety at one gig
at the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, New Jersey.

The benefit show was to raise money for the restoration of the
80-year-old theatre.

The show started off with 'Darkness'.. According to backstreets.com,
Bruce had a false start with 'Badlands' and said, "We fucked it up
already. I knew there was a reason we didn't do this".

After a 15-minute intermission, the E Street returned to perform 'Born
To Run' from 'Thunder Road' to 'Jungleland'.

The setlist from backstreets.com was:

Badlands
Adam Raised a Cain
Something in the Night
Candy's Room
Racing in the Street
The Promised Land
Factory
Streets of Fire
Prove It All Night
Darkness on the Edge of Town

Thunder Road
Tenth Avenue Freeze-out

BALTIMORE GETS ZAPPA BUST In 1995, some Lithuanian artists erected a
bust of Frank Zappa in downtown Vilnius, the capital of the former
Soviet republic. Now, theyıve given a replica of the bust to Zappaıs
hometown, Baltimore, Maryland. The city accepted the gift but will
figure out later where to put it. Zappa has no connection to Lithuania
but after the country declared independence from the Soviet Union in
1990, his music became popular there. The bust, which stands in a
public square outside the Belgian embassy, is the second-most popular
tourist attraction in the city after the Museum of Genocide Victims.
The Associated Press reports the cost of creating and shipping the bust
was about 50-thousand dollars. The city, which last year proclaimed
August 9th as Frank Zappa Day, will be responsible for the installation
and maintenance of the tribute.





PLANT AND KRAUSS TALK ON NEW VIDEO BBC News has uploaded a five minute
video interview with Robert Plant and bluegrass singer Alison Krauss.
In the clip, Alison speaks about being in Robertıs homeland of England
while Plant describes getting nervous before shows as well as working
with Alison and her brand of music. The two collaborated on the
successful Raising Sand album and are currently touring Europe.
However, it was seeing what southern music was like here in the States
that really touched the Led Zeppelin singer. On the video, he
explains,
³I completely underestimated, absolutely how deep this music is out
there. The hill music in America is stunning, itıs as blue as you get.
It makes me feel like Iıve spent so much of my life missing something
incredibly important. I donıt mean the glossy stuff and the pick-up
truck, I mean like American music from the hills, itıs spectacular.²
Plant goes on to reveal his fears before each show saying, ³I really
want it to be not too much, not too little, just this great place and
if
you overdo it, if you go into parody, if you go into role-playing,
which
our generation was loaded with, you ruin it, you wreck it.² You can
check it all out at News.BBC.co.uk. Plant and Krauss play in Germany
tomorrow.

TRAVELING WILBURYS INDIVIDUAL VOLUMES Up until last year, music from
the
Traveling Wilburys, the supergroup created 20 years ago featuring Bob
Dylan, George Harrison, Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne and Roy Orbison, was out
of print. Then, Rhino Records released a collection of the album. And
next month, Rhino plans to put it out again as individual volumes. On
June 3rd, you can get volumes one and three from the set individually
--
there was no volume two. The separate editions will feature remastered
versions of the bandıs classic tracks as well as bonus material.

NYC HOSTS NIGHT OF A THOUSAND STEVIES Stevie Nicks will take the stage
tonight in New York City, but not the famed Fleetwood Mac singer.
Instead, twenty-six Nicks imitators will perform at the 18th annual
Night of a Thousand Stevies. The tribute show features all types of
people, men and women, paying homage to Nicks. The event culminates in
a twirling Battle of the Stevies. A club promoter started Night of a
Thousand Stevies in 1990 as a place for drag queens to dress like their
rock goddess. These days, no matter the race, age, orientation or
religion, fans of Nicks don a blonde wig and head to the tribute. For
more info, head to MotherNYC.com/Stevie.

GET FRANK SINATRA STAMPS Come fly with Frank Sinatra. The legendary
singer will be placed on some new 42-cent stamps next week, just in

locations familiar to Frank. The first will take place in New York
where the Chairman of the Board will be honored by the Chairman of the
Post Officeıs board. Sinatraıs children, Nancy and Frank Jr. will both
be there. Tina Sinatra, another of Frankıs kids, will unveil the
stamps
outside the Bellagio fountains in Las Vegas, while Frank Jr. will also
head across the Hudson river and attend a ceremony in Hoboken, New
Jersey, Frankıs hometown. For more info, head to USPS.com.

NEIL YOUNG TO RELEASE ARCHIVE ON BLU-RAY Neil Young is feeling blu
these
days. The rocker plans to release his entire music archive on Blu-ray
discs with the first installment, which covers the years 1963 to 1972,
coming out in a ten-disc set this fall. The archives will be released
chronologically and include previously unreleased songs, videos,
handwritten manuscripts and other memorabilia. Fans can also download
more content like songs, photos and tour info directly to the Blu-ray
discs. According to the Associated Press, Young revealed in a
statement
that he loves the quality that comes with Blu-ray, explaining,
³Previous
technology required unacceptable quality compromises. I am glad we
waited and got it right.² (SEE TODAYS VIDEO SECTION FOR MORE)

VIVID OFFERS 100-GRAND TO PROVE JIMI ISNıT IN SEX TAPE Vivid
Entertainment has faced some backlash after they planned to release
40-year-old footage they claimed to be a sex tape with Jimi Hendrix.
Since the video hit shelves, those close to the rocker have asserted it
isnıt him in the clip. Now, however, the adult entertainment company
is
so sure of the tapeıs authenticity that they are offering 100-thousand
dollars to Experience Hendrix, the family company of the legendary
guitarist, if it can provide proof that Jimi isnıt the man recorded on
the video. Experience Hendrix had previously denied that it was the
rocker on the tape. Vivid has not only showed the clip to experts but
friends of Jimiıs as well, all of whom attest it is him. Neville
Chesters, road manager for Hendrix in the Œ60s confirmed the
authenticity adding, ³We were all jealous of Jimiıs sex life at the
time
and we were accustomed to seeing him frequently go to his room at night
with an entourage of women we called his ŒBand of Gypsys,ı the same
name
of his 1969 recording.² Cynthia Albritton also weighed in on the
matter. Albritton, who once made a plaster cast of Hendrixı penis, is
sure it is the same one she saw in the video. You can decide for
yourself. The DVD is on shelves now and the clip can also be
downloaded
at Vivid.com.



DAVID GILMOUR IN GDANSK When David Gilmour toured in the summer of
2006,
he ended the trek with an enormous show in front of 50-thousand people
at the shipyards in Gdansk, Poland. The concert was the only occasion
on which the Pink Floyd man performed the tour material with an
orchestra, using the 40-strong string section of the Polish Baltic
Philharmonic. If you werenıt able to make it to Eastern Europe for the
gig, fret not, in September, it will be released on CD. The album is
appropriately called Live In Gdansk.

CLAPTON, NELSON APPEAR ON NEW DR. JOHN ALBUM Dr. Johnıs upcoming album
features some impressive named. The blues singerıs new album, City
That
Care Forget, boasts collaborations with Eric Clapton, Willie Nelson and
Ani DiFranco. Clapton appears on the first single, ³Time for a Change²
and also lends his guitar-work to the title track. Meanwhile, Willie
adds some country to the song ³Promises, Promises.² City That Care
Forgot hits shelves on June 3rd.



POLISH GUITARISTS BREAK RECORD WITH HENDRIX SONG Over 19-hundred Polish
guitarists united last week to honor Jimi Hendrix and to break a world
record. The musicians performed Hendrixı classic ³Hey Joe² together at
the sixth annual Thanks Jimi Festival in southern Poland. The event
organizer, who is also a music teacher, started the festival ten years
ago when he brought 16 guitarists to play together. Since then, the
celebration has grown exponentially each year. The organizer told
PolskieRadio.pl, ³Last year we had in the market square in Wroclaw
1,881
guitar players so we beat our world record. We had 1,951 guitar
players
and again itıs the best in the world.² To break the record, all
musicians must be in one place and play a song that is longer than five
minutes.





Neil Young gets new honor -- his own spider

Iconic singer and songwriter Neil Young has had an honor bestowed upon
him that is not received by many musicians -- his own spider.

An East Carolina University biologist, Jason Bond, discovered a new
species of trapdoor spider and opted to call the arachnid after his
favorite musician, Canadian Neil Young, naming it Myrmekiaphila
neilyoungi.

"There are rather strict rules about how you name new species," Bond
said in a statement.

"As long as these rules are followed you can give a new species just
about any name you please. With regards to Neil Young, I really enjoy
his music and have had a great appreciation of him as an activist for
peace and justice."

Young, 62, is a veteran rock musician who rose to fame in the 1960s
with
the band Buffalo Springfield and later became a member of Crosby,
Stills, Nash & Young, whose 1970 release "Deja Vu" has become a classic
rock album.

The singer/songwriter, whose solo work ranges from older albums such as
"Harvest" to newer CDs like "Living with War," has long been an
activist
for social and anti-war causes.

Bond discovered the new spider species in Jefferson County, Alabama, in
2007. He said spiders in the trapdoor genus, who tend to live in
burrows
and build trap doors to seal off their living quarters, are
distinguished from one species to the next on the basis of differences
in genitalia.

He confirmed through the spider's DNA that the Myrmekiaphila neilyoungi
is an identifiable, separate species of spider within the trapdoor
genus.

Young is not the first musician to have a creature named after him. A
species of beetle that looks as if it is wearing a tuxedo -- the
whirligig beetle, or Orectochilus orbisonorum -- was named earlier this
year after the late rock 'n' roll legend Roy Orbison and his widow
Barbara.



ARTHUR LEE & LOVE HOPE YOUıLL LIKE THEIR NEW DIRECTION: POST-FOREVER
CHANGES BLUE THUMB ALBUMS TO BE REISSUED ON COLLECTORSı CHOICE

Double-album Out Here and False Start, which featured Jimi Hendrix, may
unnerve Loveıs folk-rock legions

LOS ANGELES, Calif. ‹ They recorded one of the most influential albums
of the late Œ60s in the folk-rocking Forever Changes, an album that
took
20 years to be fully appreciated and has been recently reissued in a
deluxe edition. But the band Love, fronted by tortured genius Arthur
Lee, switched musical gears almost immediately after recording its
masterpiece. Lee recruited a whole new Love to record the both bandıs
final Elektra album, Four Sail, and its 1969 Blue Thumb double-album
debut, Out Here. With a change of guitarists and the recruitment of
Jimi
Hendrix on one track, Love followed with False Start in 1970. The two
Blue Thumb albums will be reissued for the first time on CD by
Collectorsı Choice Music on June 10, 2008.

The new lineup Lee recruited after Forever Changes included Jay
Donnellan, guitar; Frank Fayad, bass; and George Suranovich, who
curiously hailed from doo-wop origins, on drums. Donnellan had brought
an acoustic guitar to his audition only to be told that Love no longer
sounded like that. However, fans of Forever Changes and its
predecessors, Love and Da Capo, will discover stray echoes of the
classic Love sound amidst Out Hereıs 17 tracks, namely ³Willow Willow,²
³Listen To My Song² and ³Gather Round.² Additionally, hard blues-based
rock entered the mix on this album, including a heavier version of
³Signed D.C.² from Loveıs debut. Out Here, recorded in a shabby home
studio just beneath Laurel Canyon in Hollywood, included such songs as
³Abalony,² ³Iıll Pray For You,² ³Instra-Mental² and ³Car Lights On in
the Daytime.² And thereıs some reassurance to be had that Lee still had
a song title in him like ³Love is More Than Words or Better Late Than
Never.²

Following only four months after the bandıs final Elektra album, Four
Sail, was released, Out Here peaked at #176 on Billboardıs album chart.
Sales might have improved had the band accepted an offer to play a
freestanding show on the East Coast. Lee reportedly told his booking
agent, ³No, I donıt want to go to New York for one fucking gig!² The
gig
was Woodstock.

On tour in England to promote Out Here, the band recorded two tracks
that would appear on its 1970 follow-up album, False Start. It was in
the U.K...... also that Lee reconnected with Jimi Hendrix, whom he had met
when Hendrix played lead on an obscure single Lee had written (Rosa Lee
Brooksı ³My Diary²). Hendrix dropped into the apartment where the band
was staying in London and Lee suggested they jam and see what might
come
of it. The result was ³The Everlasting First,² a tune co-written by Lee
and Hendrix with Hendrix on guitar, which leads off the album. Overall,
False Start is a more cohesive album than Out Here, while still very
much eclectic with country-rock (³Keep On Shining²), Œ70s boogie
(³Flying²), psychedelic soul (³Stand Out,² ³Anytime²) and many points
in
between.

Recorded at Los Angelesı Record Plant, False Start featured nearly the
same band as Out Here with the exception of Gary Rowles replacing the
outspoken Jay Donnellan on guitar..... The album received a glowing review
in Rolling Stone by Metal Mike Saunders, who wrote: ³Arthur Lee is now
a
good and unaffected singer, having both a soft and screaming voice . .
.
[his] songs are engaging in their simple structure, this album is
engaging as a whole, and I think I could rave on all day saying
wonderful things about it.² Despite such praise, the long-player
stalled
at #184 on Billboardıs album chart. Through a combination of further
personnel changes and encroaching substance abuse problems, this was
the
final Love album with this lineup.

Arthur Lee joined with power-pop band Baby Lemonade to perform Forever
Changes in 2003 in a cross-country tour. He died of cancer in 2006.

Howard Zinn: "Anarchism Shouldn't Be a Dirty Word"
By Ziga Vodovnik
"No doubt that anarchist ideas are frightening to those in power. People in power can tolerate liberal ideas. They can tolerate ideas that call for reforms, but they cannot tolerate the idea that there will be no state, no central authority. So it is very important for them to ridicule the idea of anarchism to create this impression of anarchism as violent and chaotic"

"Are we Americans truly savages?"
By Robert Scheer
Are we Americans truly savages or merely tone-deaf in matters of morality, and therefore more guilty of terminal indifference than venality? It's a question demanding an answer in response to the publication of the detailed 370-page report on U.S. complicity in torture, issued last week by the Justice Department's inspector general.

QUOTES:



"It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance." Robert F. Kennedy -US Attorney General 1961-64, assassinated in Los Angeles while campaigning

=
"Individualism, as a definition of holding to personal ideals, is classed as obstinacy and anti-social. Inevitably we run point blank into the evils of compromise. When compromise enters our moral fibre, it spreads like a cancerous growth. We think we plan adequate safeguards around areas in which we contemplate yielding our standards, but once we lower the fence and break our strong will to do right, come what may, we expose ourselves to forces that spread beyond control. Compromise always starts on some rather insignificant principle. The dangers of yielding seem negligible and we usually risk those things first where observation and detection by others is difficult. We thus seek to avoid censure and discipline. In a short time we find ourselves trading our principles for false values and doing it in the black market of human relationships..." Ralph W. Hardy

But by the year 2004, the surplus was gone, replaced by a deficit of $413 billion-in nominal terms the largest deficit in American history. And here we are today, in the Administration's final year...... Instead of retiring $1 trillion in debt, the Administration's policies will increase the debt by $4 trillion by the time the President steps down..

PUNMASTER MUSIC ARTICLES:


STEVE CROPPER (BOOKER T & THE MGs) AND FELIX CAVALIERE (RASCALS) UNITE
ON FORTHCOMING ALBUM NUDGE IT UP A NOTCH, DUE OUT ON STAX RECORDS ON
JULY 29

Joined on Nashville sessions with bassist Shake Anderson and drummer
Chester Thompson, with co-producer Jon Tiven

NASHVILLE, Tenn. ‹ What would happen if you combined Steve Cropper, the
Memphis-weaned Stax guitar powerhouse who also wrote and co-wrote many
soul classics, with Felix Cavaliere, the singer, songwriter and
keyboardist whose soulful voice and songs helped form the Rascals? The
world is about to find out when Stax Records releases Steve Cropper and
Felix Cavaliereıs Nudge It Up a Notch on July 29, 2008.

This soul summit came about as a result of conversations between
Cropper
and producer/songwriter Jon Tiven. When Tiven moved to Nashville
several
years ago, he asked Cropper what he was up to. Cropper replied that he
was focusing on live dates with Booker T & the MGs and the Blues
Brothers, but harbored the desire to record some new music. But who
would sing? The answer, it turned out, was Cavaliere, who, like Cropper
and Tiven, now lived in Nashville. In fact Cropper and Cavaliere were
no
strangers: they had, with a few other well-known musicians, put
together
a band to play special events. The two hadnıt written together before,
but agreed it would be fun to try.

The writing process began at Tivenıs Hormone Studios, followed by the
recording of two songs, ³One of Those Days² (the albumıs lead track)
and
³Love Appetite.² Drummer Chester Thompson, a veteran of John Fogerty,
Frank Zappa, Genesis and Frank Black, signed on as drummer, and
suggested a bass player, his friend Shake Anderson, who was Curtis
Mayfieldıs protégé. The assemblage grew to include two backup singers,
Mark Williams and Nınandi Bryant. And that was it. No special guest
stars. As Tiven wrote in the notes, ³This isnıt one of those albums
where you have to guess whoıs doing what ‹ every guitar lick is Steve,
every keyboard is Felix, and all the songs are originals.²

Tiven elaborates on the legacies of Cropper and Cavaliere: ³Steve
Cropper is a guitar playerıs guitarist but also a songwriterıs
songwriter,² he writes. ³If the only thing he did in life was to play
producer/co-writer/guitarist for Otis Redding, that would be enough.
But
he also helmed enough albums that made their mark on American pop
culture by artists like Booker T & the MGs, The Blues Brothers, Jeff
Beck and John Mellencamp to qualify him as a bona fide national
treasure.²

³And Cavaliere . . .,² he adds, ³If you were alive in the alive in the
mid-to-late Œ60s, you couldnıt go anywhere without hearing his voice
and
songs are part of his group The Young Rascals (later The Rascals).
Their
blue-eyed soul dominated the airwaves . . . and gave this country the
kind of soul music most folks wouldnıt think to associate with a bunch
of Long Island Peppermint Lounge expatriates.²

Nudge It Up a Notch, which was reverently mixed by the legendary David
Z, features 12 tracks, including several instrumentals (Cropper having
a
bit of history in the R&B instrumental department) alongside vocal
tracks. On a few tunes the team turned to friends Henry Gross and Tom
Hambridge to provide their lyrical spin. One track, ³Make The Time Go
Faster,² embellishes its chunky soul riff with rap passages.

³If all this combination of iconic songwriter/prformers had to offer
was simply the sum of their parts it would be extraordinary,² Tiven
concludes. ³But you put this much flammable material in the room and
you
donıt just get a little heat. You get a bonfire.²

CSNY Documentary Heading To U.S. Theaters

Gregg Goldstein, The Hollywood Reporter

Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions are finalizing a deal for U.S.
rights
to the politically charged Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young documentary
"CSNY -- Deja Vu."

Fortissimo Films, which acquired the film from Shangri-La, has sold
rights to 15 more international territories.

The feature, directed by Neil Young, chronicles the rock group's 2006
Freedom of Speech tour in support of Young's "Living in War" album.

The anti-Iraq War theme and songs like "Let's Impeach the President"
increasingly polarized audiences as the band traveled through the U.S.
Interviews with soldiers and others affected by the war are intercut
with the concert footage.

When the film premiered in January at the Sundance Film Festival, the
band members expressed a desire to release it before the November
elections in order to encourage debate. The proposed deal would
certainly get it seen.

In July, Roadside will release it theatrically in 15 cities, with
Lionsgate handling a simultaneous nationwide video-on-demand release
and, via potential partner Netflix, streaming video. The DVD will be
released shortly before the elections through the band's label,
Reprise,
with HDNet in talks to air the film on the same date.

Fortissimo already has sold the film to Australia, Europe, Israel,
Japan
and Latin America.............. Cinetic is handling North American sales.

MICKEY HART GETS TO WORK AND PLAY A musician gets to play for a living.
Yet even though their work is called play, it still work. Grateful
Dead
Drummer Mickey Hart described what play and work are like for him.

(Actuality #2) ³Thatıs why they call what I do play, see I donıt go to
work, thatıs a boon unto itself, I wouldnıt go to work every day either
if I didnıt have to......... But it is a bit of work, it isnıt all play, a lot
of itıs detail, but it borders on play.²

Mickey will be working and playing tonight Wavy Gravyıs Birthday
Celebration in Mill Valley, California.

THE TURTLES SUE OVER ICE CUBE Two members of the The Turtles, the Œ60s
group who had a hit with ³Happy Together,² have sued Capitol Records
over an Ice Cube song. According to the suit that was filed yesterday
in
L-A court, Flo & Eddie recorded a song in 1972 for The Turtles called
³Buzzsaw.² According to TMZ, the suit claims the tune was sampled in a
rap song by Ice Cube called ³Jackinı for Beats.² Flo & Eddie allege
Capital signed a deal for Cube to use the song but ended up going
beyond
the agreement to make even more money off their work. The songwriters
are seeking a minimum of 25-thousand dollars but not more than
70-thousand dollars.
SINATRA DOCUMENTARY CONSIDERED Frank Sinatraıs children, Nancy, Tina
and
Frank Jr., are at odds over a proposal to produce a film documentary
about their late fatherıs life. The World Entertainment News Network
reports the film would be directed by Martin Scorsese, who has been at
the helm of movies about Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones. Tina
supports
the project but Nancy is concerned the documentary would only focus on
the ³negative and ugly moments.² Frank Jr. complains heıs been kept out
of the loop by his sisters and wishes for more involvement regarding
decisions of their fatherıs image and estate.
NICK MASON CANıT BELIEVE THOSE PRICES A lot has certainly changes since
Pink Floyd first hit the scene in the mid-1960ıs. Nick Mason told us
about one of the things that he finds hard to believe now that weıve
entered the 21st Century.

(Actuality #1) ³If you are touring now, itıs extraordinary because,
when I was a boy, it was unthinkable for a ticket price to be greater
than the price of an album, now itıs a different world.²

What is still about the price of an album is a DVD, and thereıs a new
disc out there for Pink Floyd fans. Itıs called Welcome to the Machine,
and itıs the 40th anniversary special edition of the ultimate critical
guide to the work of Pink Floyd in concert on record and on film. The
package is out today.

MEET CARLOS SANTANA Fans of rock legend Carlos Santana donıt want to
miss this opportunity. In an effort to benefit the Milagro Foundation
(which promotes the welfare of underprivileged children), Carlos has

JETHRO TULL CELEBRATES ITS 40TH ANNIVERSARY

The 40th Anniversary of Jethro Tull is upon us this year--2008. The
group, which is made up of frontman/flutist/guitarist Ian Anderson,
guitarist Martin Barre, drummer Doane Perry, keyboardist John O'Hara,
and bassist David Goodier is in the midst of a variety of tourdates
that
include Europe, the UK, the Middle East and North America.....

Anderson says the group will choose its set list, "to a large extent
from the first few albums but with a some representative songs from the
'80s and the '90s, too. Songs and tunes which defined the early Jethro
Tull from blues band to eclectic, pre-prog inventiveness."

But he says that this year he plans "to visit a few less places than
last year. I already have some time set aside for studio work and
lazing
about in the garden."

The 90 shows between April and December, with which will include eleven
in the United States, will be updated on the band's web site,
www.jethrotull.com.

While there are no new recordings available in 2008, there are a few
historical releases scheduled over the next months, including a live
DVD
collection of perfomances in Germany, a newly produced DVD documentary
and history of Jethro Tull, which Anderson says will feature the
contributions of most past band members, friends and associates as well
as live performances from a multitude of sources over the years.
Contributions include reference information from many fans and liner
notes from the group's original basssist Jeffrey Hammond-Hammond. The
artwork features a painting by Jeffrey depicting Blackpool, the town
where Anderson, Hammond, drummer Barriemore Barlow and keyboard-player
John Evan, formed a band in 1964.

On June 10, Capitol/EMI Records is re-releasing the group's first
album,
THIS WAS as a 2-CD and digital release of a remastered and expanded
Collectors' Edition of the Tull's 1968 debut album, This Was. This
release presents, for the first time on CD, the albumıs original mono
mix as well as a new stereo mix of the album. Also featured are nine
related 1968 recordings for John Peelıs BBC Radio program, Top Gear,
plus four rare 1968 UK singles: Sunshine Day, Song For John Gee, Love
Story and A Christmas Song. The commemorative package includes 35
tracks
in all, as well as package notes and anecdotes from Jethro Tullıs
members.

On May 20, Eagle Rock Entertainment will release Jethro Tullıs Jack In
The Green: Live In Germany, an enticing DVD compendium of in-concert
rarities [running time: 96 minutes] spanning the years 1970 to 1993.

Jethro Tull have carved out a musical niche all their own with a career
that has spanned over three decades. Selling over sixty million albums
including Aqualung, Thick As a Brick and Stand Up; albums which have
offered up Classic Rock radio staples Locomotive Breath and Aqualung.
The band has played over 2500 concerts around the world and helped
define a unique blend of acoustic and electric music that draws
influences from the world's music, including Asian, Jazz, Classical and
Folk.

As live performers, Jethro Tull are unparalleled. Famous for
instrumental virtuosity and theatrical flair, Jethro Tull live is an
event that welcomes longtime fans and new converts alike..

LES PAULıS 93RD BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION
MONDAY, JUNE 9, 2008

New York, NY On Monday, June 9, 2008 guitar legend Les Paul (June 9,
1915) will celebrate his 93rd birthday at his long time New York City
home The Iridium Jazz Club.

Les Paul is a living legend and an icon of the music world. He was
inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, received multiple Grammy
Awards, pioneered the modern electric guitar and invented numerous
recording techniques. Les has influenced countless musicians and
guitarists and is hailed as "The Father Of The Electric Guitar".

Les Paul's regular Monday night appearances at The Iridium Jazz Club
since April 1995 attract devoted fans from all over the world.
World-class musicians like Paul McCartney, Keith Richards, Tony
Bennett,
Steve Miller, George Benson, Pat Metheny, Jeff Beck, Slash and
countless
others come to pay homage. By far, this is the music industry's most
important regular music gig in NYC.
Bob Weir Joins Phil & Friends for Grateful Dead and Anthem of the Sun

Last night Phil Lesh & Friends opened a five-night run at San
Franciscoıs famed Warfield Theater. To the surprise of nearly everyone
in attendance, Lesh and his friends ran through a complete version of
the Grateful Deadıs 1967 self-titled debut during their first set, with
Bob Weir joining his estranged bandmate for ³Cream Puff War,² ²Morning
Dew,² ³New Minglewood Blues² and ³Viola Lee Blues.² Weir returned at
the
start of Leshıs second set as the bassist jumped headfirst into the
Deadıs 1968 sophomore effort Anthem of the Sun, which includes classics
like ³That's It For The Other One² and early rave-ups such as
³Alligator.² At the end of the night, Lesh closed his set with the
Buddy
Holly sing-a-long ³Not Fade Away.² With eight sets and eleven albums to
go, itıs a fair bet that Lesh will run through the Grateful Deadıs
entire recorded canon over the next few days. Phil & Friends will
return
to the Warfield this evening. As of press time, the venue's future is
uncertain.

Greetings and hope everyone is well. All is okay with us as the homeland quest is taking us between the visa restrictions of Australia and New Zealand. This time around, I had a challenging moment which Terence McKenna videos to list. As with most multiple choice tests, I indulged in "all of the above" when reviewing, so hope you enjoy. No solution yet as to why most of my mailings are going to the bulk and spam sections. This week I will be attempting my first links as a blog mailing. I look forward to the feedback on it.
As we do every now and then, a humble request for any donations would be very appreciated for the research time and cost. Even small amounts would be nice. In any case, the links will go on as awareness is necessary more than ever. Even if its just scrolling through the information. If you do chose to contribute, you can either send a credit card payment through Paypal to the account of balivillasinga@yahoo.com or send an envelope with a check to the address below.
Thanks

Greetings again from another very wet week in the rain forest. Some of these clouds would be very appreciated if they found their way to the drought and fire stricken areas of the continent.
I hope this week's links have some articles of interest for everyone: Rainbow Gatherings, legalization news, psychedelic therapy, shamanism, art, music, environmental and health threats, positive options, global events, war activities, economic news and various other eclectic stories. And, as every week, I have added some interesting art towards the bottom of the blog right above the quotes and music section.

Jailing Kids for Cash: "As many as 5,000 children in Pennsylvania have been found guilty, and up to 2,000 of them jailed, by two corrupt judges who received kickbacks from the builders and owners of private prison facilities that benefited. The two judges pleaded guilty in a stunning case of greed and corruption that is still unfolding. Judges Mark A. Ciavarella Jr. and Michael T. Conahan received $2.6 million in kickbacks while imprisoning children who often had no access to a lawyer. The case offers an extraordinary glimpse into the shameful private prison industry that is flourishing in the United States."

Finance Capitalism Hits a Wall

The Oligarchs' Escape Plan - at the Treasury's Expense

By Prof. Michael Hudson

The financial "wealth creation" game is over. Economies emerged from World War II relatively free of debt, but the 60-year global run-up has run its course. Finance capitalism is in a state of collapse, and marginal palliatives cannot revive it. The U.S. economy cannot "inflate its way out of debt," because this would collapse the dollar and end its dreams of global empire by forcing foreign countries to go their own way.

Strange Math

By Ignacio Merino

Right now President Obama is a new broom and the country thinks he is resolving a problem left to him by a Republican administration. He is about to sign in a stimulus package that will fail to stimulate the economy. Then in three months he'll be back at the trough looking for more money. Six months will pass, things will get worse, and it will be viewed as his problem to clean up. By the end of 2009, assuming he follows the path laid out with the stimulus bill, he will be viewed by the American public as inept and the "wrong man for the job". Things will be a lot worse than they are now.

The People Be Damned
The President of Special Interests
By Paul Craig Roberts
The Bush/Obama bailout/stimulus plans are not going to work. Both are schemes hatched by a clique of financial insiders. The schemes will redistribute income and wealth from American taxpayers to the shyster banksters, who have destroyed American jobs, ruined the retirement plans of tens of millions of Americans, and worsened the situation of millions of people worldwide who naively trusted American financial institutions.

Malcolm X on Zionism

By Malcolm X (Omowale Malcolm X Shabazz)

The Zionist armies that now occupy Palestine claim their ancient Jewish prophets predicted that in the "last days of this world" their own God would raise them up a "messiah" who would lead them to their promised land, and they would set up their own "divine" government in this newly-gained land, this "divine" government would enable them to "rule all other nations with a rod of iron."

Simon and Garfunkel reunite in New York

By Jonathan Cohen

NEW YORK (Billboard) – Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel joined forces for a surprise reunion in New York on Friday, performing three songs during the encore of Simon's show at the newly renovated Beacon Theater.

The occasional adversaries dueted on "The Sound of Silence," "The Boxer" and "Old Friends," in what is believed to be just their third appearance together since concluding a 2004 reunion tour. Garfunkel had flown in from Florida, where he played in Key Largo the night before, and he returned to play in Fort Pierce the next night.

The reunion added extra glitz to an evening attended by celebrities such as New York mayor Michael Bloomberg, Paul McCartney, Jon Bon Jovi and Jimmy Fallon, and showcased the Beacon's refurbished interior and new sound system.

Simon played an eclectic two-set show, drawing equally from classics such as "Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard," "Slip Slidin' Away" and "Graceland" as he did songs from his ill-fated Broadway musical "The Capeman" and newer material such as "Father and Daughter" and "Amulet," a collaboration with Brazilian vocalist Luciana Souza.

Also featured were off-the-beaten-path cuts such as "Duncan," which hearkened back to Simon's folk roots, "Train in the Distance," from the critically maligned 1983 album "Hearts & Bones," and "Loves Me Like a Rock," a 1973 precursor to Simon's future dabbling in African music.

Simon also performed at the Beacon on Saturday.

Obama plans concert for Stevie Wonder

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The White House is planning a concert this month to honor Stevie Wonder, whose music provided part of President Barack Obama's campaign soundtrack.

The White House says the president and first lady Michelle Obama will present Wonder a Library of Congress award on Feb. 25. The concert will be broadcast the next day on PBS as part of its "Performance at the White House" series.

The award-winning and chart-topping Wonder performed at the Democratic National Convention in Denver on the night Obama accepted his party's nomination. He also performed at a concert during the week of Obama's inauguration.

His song "Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours" became a theme song during the campaign. Obama also used "Higher Ground" during campaign stops.




PETER GABRIEL WON'T PERFORM AT OSCARS
Peter Gabriel, who is nominated for the Academy Award for Best Song for his tune "Down to Earth" from WALL-E, will not be performing at the Oscars. In a video on his Web site, the singer explained that producers of the awards show decided to do a medley of the three nominated songs, giving Gabriel only a minute of performance time. Peter explains that it's unfortunate that songwriters get so little time to showcase their work. He states, "I'm an old fart, and it's not going to do me any harm to make a little protest but I think for some of the other artists it's not so easy." Peter will still attend the ceremony since he thinks it'll be "a fun adventure" and hopes that the Soweto Gospel Choir, which accompanies him on the track, will still be allowed to perform with whoever sings the song. Check out the entire video PeterGabriel.com.

YES CANCELS SHOWS
Yes has cancelled all concert dates through February 24th, citing unspecified medical reasons. According to the Associated Press, the band didn't give any further details. Yes are out on their In The Present Tour without lead singer Jon Anderson, who suffered an acute respiratory failure last May.

The frontman is excited to get animated for the video game saying, "I'm really pleased to be in it with Metallica but [singer] James [Hetfield] is still taller than me." Guitar Hero: Metallica is due out in the spring.





LINDSEY BUCKINGHAM'S WRITING DECISIONS
Fleetwood Mac recently revealed they wouldn't be working on any new music until, at the earliest, after their upcoming Unleashed tour. However, guitarist Lindsey Buckingham is also a solo artist so he could very well be writing on the road. Of course, how does he know which songs should be his own and which he should share with the band? He filled us in.
(Actuality #2) "Most of the time it's not clear what is a Fleetwood Mac song and what is a solo song and it may very well be defined by the circumstances you find you're in or, just as often, it'll be defined by the politics of the band and what they are receptive to."
To hear some of Lindsey's solo stuff, pick up his most recent album, Gift of Screws. To hear Fleetwood Mac, check out the band on their tour. It kicks off on March 1st in Pittsburgh. For all the dates, head to FleetwoodMac.com.

Graham Nash recently released Reflections, a three-disc boxed set career retrospective. The package boasts 64 songs but during his tenure, the singer has done so many more. So was it difficult to narrow down his life's work? Nash explained.

If anybody ever wants to know what the musical life of Graham Nash was I think this Reflections box set will go a long way to let them know exactly who I am."

DWEEZIL ZAPPA TALKS ABOUT GRAMMY WIN
Dweezil Zappa took home the GRAMMY for Best Rock Instrumental Performance this week for his work on Zappa Plays Zappa. The set features Dweezil performing the music of his father, Frank Zappa. The younger Zappa discussed what it feels like to win a GRAMMY.
(Actuality #2) "It's very emotional for me, obviously, my father passed away a while back and his music means a lot to me. The whole thing that I set out to do with performing this music was to reach a new generation, a younger generation, because I felt like my father's music had, in many ways, been overlooked and misunderstood by so many."
Dweezil went on to describe how it is he thinks his dad's music was misunderstood.
(Actuality #3) "Possibly because the songs that did get some attention or airplay had some sort of comedic appeal to them so he was lumped into a category like Weird Al Yankovic and people only really thought of him as a comedy artist and the guy with kids with crazy names. So I felt like I wanted to focus on his real compositional achievements that I thought the world really needed to honor and respect."
You can honor and respect the music of Frank Zappa by checking out the Zappa Plays Zappa show. The next one is on February 26th in Phoenix. Meanwhile, the Zappa Plays Zappa CD is on shelves now.

SCHOOL BOARD APOLOGIZES TO SEEGER
A San Diego school district has apologized to Pete Seeger for something that happened in 1960. Nearly 50 years ago, amid suspicion and feats of McCarthyism, the singer was asked by the school to sign an oath against communism or cancel a concert he planned to play in the auditorium. The Associated Press reports that Seeger refused to sign and a judge still allowed him to perform. Now, decades later, in a resolution approved Tuesday night, the school board declared they "deeply regret" their predecessors' actions against a man who has become "one of our dearest national treasures." Seeger accepted the apology, noting the publicity around the whole to-do might have helped his career. The resolution also invited Seeger back to San Diego to perform.
• Pete just won the GRAMMY for Best Traditional Folk Album for his latest effort, At 89.

EDDIE VAN HALEN TALKS ABOUT SON, NEW MUSIC
Eddie Van Halen updated Rolling Stone magazine about what's going on in his life. The rocker revealed that his son, Wolfgang, will be Van Halen's permanent bassist. He explained how tough the 17-year-old had it on tour last year, having to be tutored four hours a day then playing the concert. Eddie went on to say that he's writing new songs for the next time the band hits the road. He described the music as "a variety of stuff," adding, "The essence of me is obviously there, and those drums, they're always recognizable. But people expect a certain thing from Van Halen, and this isn't exactly bang-your-head-against-the-wall stuff." Read more at RollingStone.com.

PAUL McCARTNEY AMAZED BY BEATLES' WORK
Paul McCartney may not have won either of the GRAMMYs he was nominated for over the weekend, but he has won a fair share in his time. Many of those wins were with The Beatles. So what does Sir Paul think when he reflects on that legendary band?
(Actuality #1) "I'm very proud of everything we did with The Beatles. In truth, looking back on it, I can't believe it because we were just working each day, year and year out making records. Now that it's over, The Beatles is a body of work now, so I can look back on it just passionately and judge it for what it is and I think it's fine. I'm kind of amazed we did it because we were kids."
Now that Paul's an adult, he's working on all sorts of music, like his latest album of electronic music. He released the effort, called Electric Arguments, under the name The Fireman. Check it out now at TheFiremanMusic.com.

PARIS HILTON ASKS PAUL McCARTNEY FOR A DUET
Put a slew of celebrities in one room and odd things are bound to happen, so it's no surprise that there was an interesting encounter at the GRAMMYs last weekend. According to England's The Sun, Paris Hilton approached Paul McCartney backstage and asked the former Beatle if he'd consider doing a duet with her. Sir Paul reportedly looked a little confused and told the celebutante that he'd have to check his schedule. Hilton then complimented McCartney on his "cute" hair.

MICKEY HART LEARNS WORLD MUSIC FROM TRAVELLING
This past weekend, Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart won the GRAMMY for Best Contemporary World Music Album. It turns out that part of the reason he's developed a knack for world music is because he's gotten the chance to perform with so many different types of people during his travels with and without the Grateful Dead. Mickey explained.
(Actuality #2) "Going to Egypt, playing with them, going to the Arctic Circle, playing with the Inuits, going all over the world where I've recorded and played certainly enhances the vocabulary. There is no better way to get to know a people than through their music and specifically, in our case, rhythm. Music is not an international language, rhythm is."
You can hear Mickey's rhythm by picking up his GRAMMY-winning world music album, Global Drum Project. It's on shelves now.

CONCORD RECORDS TO RELEASE DEFINITIVE RAY CHARLES ANTHOLOGY:
RAY CHARLES – GENIUS: THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION,
FEATURING 21 HITS FROM HIS MOST CELEBRATED ERA

Set due in stores April 7. Most songs available digitally for the first time.

LOS ANGELES, Calif. — Commencing an extensive Ray Charles reissue program for 2009, Concord Records will release a 21-song anthology of hits titled Ray Charles— Genius: The Ultimate Ray Charles Collection. The volume, slated for a street date of April 7, 2009, presents Charles' most influential recordings for the Atlantic and ABC-Paramount labels including 1955's "I Got a Woman" plus "Busted," "Georgia on My Mind," "Hit the Road Jack" and "I Can't Stop Loving You," concluding with his signature 1972 rendition of "America the Beautiful." All are digitally remastered from the original tapes.

Late last year, Concord Music Group announced it had entered into an exclusive arrangement with the Ray Charles Foundation to develop the artist's post-1960 catalog, which contains his classic work for the ABC-Paramount and Tangerine labels. In addition to planning a series of CD reissues, Concord will make the catalog available digitally for the first time ever.

Ray Charles — Genius: The Ultimate Ray Charles Collection chronicles the high points in Charles' catalog. As noted jazz writer Don Heckman writes in his liner notes, "The first feeling that comes to mind after even a short glance at the titles included here is a sense of wonder. The diversity of the material is impressive in its own right — blues, of course, transformed gospel songs, country tunes, an American Songbook standard, a Beatles classic and a climactic American anthem. But more than that, it's what he does with all these variegated numbers. Good singers can do great interpretations. Great singers like Charles possess the material in a way that makes a song their own, while remaining true to the essence of each."

Ten of the tracks on this collection made it to #1 on the R&B charts and three songs hit #1 on the pop chart. "That may sound like nothing more than numbers," says Heckman, "but it represents an extraordinary string of successes in which Charles released a Top 10 R&B single in almost every year between 1954-67, and a Top 10 pop single almost every year between 1959-67."

The album contains 21 of Charles' biggest hits, each within its own unique history and meaning. "Hit the Road Jack," penned by Percy Mayfield, a #1 pop hit and a 1961 Grammy winner for Charles, opens the collection. Also included are "What I'd Say (Part 1)," ranked #10 in Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time; the classic "Busted"; "I Can't Stop Loving You" from the album Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music, which reached #1 on R&B and pop charts; the Bobby Sharp composition "Unchain My Heart"; Charles' signature rendition of Hoagy Carmichael's "Georgia on My Mind, another #1 pop hit; "I Got a Woman" which was Charles' first #1 R&B hit and was later sampled by Kanye West; "You Are My Sunshine," the Jimmie Davis standard that Charles brought to #1 R&B; a soulful edition of Hank Williams' "Take These Chains From My Heart"; the offbeat "Hide Nor Hair"; Ashford & Simpson's "Let's Go Get Stoned," a #1 R&B hit by Charles; "You Don't Know Me," earlier a hit for Jerry Vale, which charted #2 pop; "Hallelujah I Love Her So," originally a gospel hymn; "Crying Time," a Buck Owens song which Charles brought to #6 on the pop charts; the funky "I'm a Fool for You," which charted #1 R&B; "One Mint Julep," Charles' version of The Clovers' hit with a big band arrangement by Quincy Jones; "Here We Go Again," sung as a duet with Betty Carter; "Yesterday," the Paul McCartney classic, in which Charles, according to Heckman, "embraces the song's deep inner heart"; and finally his 1972 signature recording of "America the Beautiful," the perfect ending and relevant once again.

Genius: The Ultimate Ray Charles Collection will be packaged in a handsome embossed digipack and presented with a 24-page collectors' book of rare photos and Heckman's notes.

"Genius Loves Company was Ray Charles' highest selling record ever,"
said Valerie Ervin, President of the Ray Charles Foundation. "In addition to the artistic quality of the music, the release was matched by Concord's skill in finding new ways to market in the increasingly challenging environment.
Their incomparable ability to innovate will also be seen in the upcoming
releases."

Concord will release several other Ray Charles reissues this year including Modern Sounds in Country & Western Music, Volumes 1 & 2, The Genius Hits the Road, A Message to the People and Genius + Soul = Jazz & More.

Chomsky: Obama OKed Israel's Gaza war

By Press TV
