Native American veterans push for recognition
Fox News - over 3 years
The Navajo Code Talkers are legendary. Then there was Cpl. Ira Hamilton Hayes, the Pima Indian who became a symbol of courage and patriotism when he and his fellow Marines raised the flag over Iwo Jima in 1945. Before World War II and in the decades since, tens of thousands of American Indians have enlisted in the Armed Forces to serve their country at a rate much greater than any other ethnicity. Yet, among all the monuments and statutes along the National Mall in Washington, D.C., not one stands in recognition. A grassroots effort is brewing among tribes across the country to change that, while Democratic Sen. Brian Schatz of Hawaii has introduced legislation that would clear the way for the National Museum of the American Indian to begin raising private funds for a memorial.

Huffington Post - about 4 years
Being in a rock 'n' roll band gets you scrutinized by people in the straight-laced world. They immediately assume you're some drug addict and, if you're like me -- a person who doesn't drink or smoke -- assume you're a recovering drug addict. Truth is, I never had much of a palette for it. I was also lucky enough to get copies of Minor Threat and Bad Brains albums when I was a very impressionable teenager and combing through the lyrics of songs like "Attitude," "Out Of Step" and "Straight Edge" had an indelible effect on me that I am only now starting to recognize. Despite these beginnings, I, like a lot of people, was curious about drugs. I definitely experimented, dabbled, even habitually enjoyed for some time, and had a general all-around blast. Nobody got hurt and there was never any silly high-school drama attached to it. It was only when friends around me overindulged in alcohol did the drama start flowing like a corny after-school special. I never really had the ...

    More Details Hide Details Releasing just one EP, Amusing the Amazing, the band's tenure was short-lived, though it was embraced by the former Kyuss fanbase. A total of 9 songs were recorded, but the band did not have enough funds, so the 4 tracks were released as an EP. Bootleg copies of the album that have the remaining 5 tracks exist, unmixed, in varying quality. The band played at Ozzfest in 1997 before disbanding later that year, for reasons never officially revealed. Upon leaving Slo Burn, Garcia formed the band Unida, which at one point included former Kyuss bassist Scott Reeder. Unida released one album, Coping with the Urban Coyote and a split EP with the Swedish group Dozer. Unida were signed to Rick Rubin's label, American Recordings, and recorded a second album, El Coyote (alternatively known as The Great Divide) which was unreleased due to company partner, Island/Def Jam, not seeing any commercial potential in the music.
