Bring 'Em Home
Devendra Banhart, REM frontman Michael Stipe, Bright Eyes, Public Enemy frontman Chuck D and Rufus Wainwright will perform in the Bring 'Em Home concert in New York's Hammerstein Ballroom on March 20th, the third anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq, to plead against the war in Iraq.

The singers will join activist Cindy Sheehan in her effort to bring the American soldiers home from Iraq and to stop the war.

Among the celebrities expected to attend the event are Jane Fonda, Alec Baldwin, Margaret Cho and Janeane Garofalo, while Steve Earle, Fischerspooner, and Peaches will be among the other performers. [MORE...]

I applaud these people who lend their time and expertise to the cause of bringing 'em home, but I can't help but feel there are many people too apprehensive to speak out against the war. Their silence is deafening.

Wolfgang's Vault is the online site of the vault contents of rock promoter Bill Graham's estate. Fortunately, Graham was a pack rat and kept everything from the Fillmore East and West. Vintage tickets, posters, and reels of performances. The recent buyer of his extensive estate has catalogued and priced most of the items for sale. Link

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
