Huffington Post - about 1 year
It’s been 36 years since John Lennon was gunned down in the archway of the Dakota building in New York City, but his death continues to strike a chord with all those impacted by gun violence today.  On Thursday, his widow Yoko Ono commemorated the anniversary by sharing a powerful image of blood-stained glasses on Facebook with a harrowing statistic of the number of people who’ve been killed by guns in the United States since Lennon’s murder in 1980. “Every day, 91 Americans are killed with guns,” she captioned the image. “We are turning this beautiful country into a War Zone. Together, let’s bring back America, the green land of Peace. The death of a loved one is a hollowing experience. After 36 years, our son Sean and I still miss him.”  Others touched by Lennon’s legacy paid tribute to the slain Beatle with moving posts across social media.

The Untold Story of the Beatles' Gay Manager
Huffington Post - about 4 years
In the early 1960s, Beatles manager Brian Epstein made two bold and visionary statements about the future. He's famous for the first one: "The Beatles are going to be bigger than Elvis!" (At the time, the Fab Four were a middle-of-the-road Liverpool band rejected by every record company in the business.) Epstein's second visionary statement has been largely overlooked, but it was in fact bolder, more inspiring, and not only dangerous but borderline seditious. During a media appearance, after dashing lovestruck fans' hopes by revealing that the Beatles would one day be married, Brian added, "And someday, I might be married too!" No one paid much attention to that sentence. The media recorded it, thinking it a lighthearted joke, but it was hardly a laughing matter. What the public didn't know was that Brian Epstein was gay. And in 1960s England, forget about being allowed to marry; gay men and lesbians weren't allowed to openly walk the streets! It was literally a felony to be attract...

Dog Ears Music: Volume 300 Deserves to Be Heard
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Joe MeekProducer, engineer, composer, and eccentric sound innovator Joe Meek was born in 1929 in South West England. His childhood was fraught, with his mum raising him as a girl until the age of 4, setting the stage for a lifelong identity crisis. By the age of 7, he fell in love with his first gramophone and became an eminent tinkerer, burrowing into the safety of sound. Working out of a gadget-packed home studio and using a raft of newfangled recording techniques, Meek produced and wrote the U.S. No. 1 hit "Telstar" for British pop band The Tornados in 1962. He continued to push the technological envelope with tracks for Les Paul and Mary Ford, David Bowie, Tom Jones, The Honeycombs, Screaming Lord Sutch, actor/singer John Leyton, Heinz, Glenda Collins, and Ritchie Blackmore, among many others. Emotional and financial turmoil, including an obsession with the occult and drug abuse, pushed Meek beyond the edge in 1967, when he killed his landlady and then himself a...

It was a co-headlining bill that may seem obtuse at first, rising Australian buzz band, Tame Impala on the same level as psychedelic indie legends, The Flaming Lips, but the match-up worked just right. It was a night of music that dazzled the ears, stunned the eyes, and left all senses senseless by the time it was over. A sonic assault on all audience members in attendance to Manhattan's Terminal 5, the co-headlining venture of The Flaming Lips and Tame Impala may be one of the best tours this season.

An Arts & Extras interview with Yoko Ono
Roanoke.com - over 4 years
Photo by Ken McKay. Yoko Ono performs “Cut Piece” in 2003 at a theater in Paris. “Everybody knows her name, but nobody knows what she does.” That’s how the late John Lennon described his wife, Yoko Ono, to Rolling Stone magazine in 1971. He called her “the most famous unknown artist,” a quote that has defined her career in the years since. When “Imagine Peace” opens Saturday at the Taubman Museum of Art, the Roanoke Valley will have a chance to see what Ono does. The artist herself won’t attend. Ono, 80, will be in New York, preparing for a sold-out Sept. 15 performance. She and the latest incarnation of the Plastic Ono Band — which includes son Sean Lennon — will play songs from her new album, “Take Me to the Land of Hell,” at the Bowery Ballroom in New York. Interviewed via phone in August, Ono said she had little to do with the creation of the Taubman show — beyond having originated the artwork — and didn’t mind ceding control of it to others. “We just plant the seed,...

Clipper Ship Three Brothers, 2972 tons: The Largest Sailing Ship in the World. This hand-colored lithograph was published by Currier & Ives in 1875, and is therefore in the public domain. In the folk world, "Sea Music" or "Maritime Music" refers to the work songs and leisure music of people who make their living from the sea: sailors, fisher-folk and watermen of all kinds. There's a thriving scene for historical and contemporary sea music, with festivals all over Europe and North America. Here in the U.S., the premiere festival is at Mystic Seaport in Connecticut, and last month my band Ocean Celtic was lucky enough to play there and meet many of the great sea music performers from all over the world.

Meet The Fracking Fighters
Huffington Post - over 4 years
VESTAL, N.Y. (AP) — Big energy companies have been trying for five years to tap the riches of the Marcellus Shale in southern New York, promising thousands of new jobs, economic salvation for a depressed region, and a cheap, abundant, clean-burning source of fuel close to power-hungry cities. But for all its political clout and financial prowess, the industry hasn't been able to get its foot in the door. One reason: Folks like Sue Rapp and Vera Scroggins are standing in the way. Rapp, a family counselor in the Broome County town of Vestal, in the prime shale gas region near the Pennsylvania border, is intense and unrelenting in pressing her petitions. Scroggins — a retiree and grandmother who lives across the border in hilly northwestern Pennsylvania, where intensive gas development has been going on for five years — is gleefully confrontational. She happily posts videos of her skirmishes. The anti-fracking movement has inspire...

Anti-Fracking Group Pushes Back
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
ALBANY, N.Y. -- Artists Against Fracking said neither the group nor supporters Yoko Ono or Sean Lennon have been told to register as lobbyists in their campaign against gas drilling in New York, but will if necessary to continue their work. A good-government advocate and two lobbying experts said the state should review whether Artists Against Fracking and its supporter-celebrities should be registered as lobbyists. The group and nearly 200 entertainers connected with it aren't currently registered lobbyists, a search by The Associated Press of the database of the state Joint Commission on Public Ethics shows. Registration would require disclosure of how much money the group has raised and how it's been spent – a measure intended as a way for the public to know who is influencing public policy. David Fenton, a spokesman for the group, said Monday it would have no objection if required to register. "Yoko and Sean, as true with many New Yorkers, have expre...
