VIDEO: “Give Peace A Chance” – Sir Paul McCartney and Neil Young say so! #DesertTrip

9 Oct

Desert Trip, Oldchella, Retirement community of the year, whatever you want to call it, it’s magical and being able to experience it with my family is priceless and amazing. Watching other families like ours enjoying the weekend is so joyous I only wish everyone had the opportunity. Seriously if you can make it next week, get online, buy tickets and be in Indio, it’s worth every moment.

Day two was a memorable one for the books! Neil Young and Promise of the Real delivered an incredible and rocking set to kickstart the night; Sir Paul McCartney as he always does, dazzled the crowd with his insane catalog of hits, production any artist would die for and of course his graceful ways with the crowd. However last night amid the smiles grinning from ear to ear during the second day of Desert Trip, the most powerful moment came when Sir Paul welcomed Neil Young to the stage. Together they rocked “A Day In The Life” into “Give Peace A Chance” which became a 75,000+ singalong in unison. If an Englishman and a Canadian can stand on stage and deliver this message to 75,000 people from all over the world, it’s our duty (and should be our honor) to continue to spread this message not only across the United States from sea to shining sea but to each and every person we touch. Believe in PEACE, seek PEACE, give PEACE a chance!

PEACE + LOVE + MUSIC

Countdown to @LifeIsBeautiful: 19 Days – @AlabamaShakes

6 Oct

“Don’t worry sweet baby! Don’t you ever worry ’bout a thing. Put them worries on the shelf ‘n’ learn to love yourself Don’t be your own worst enemy.”

If you’re like me, you’re counting down the days until Brittany Howard and her crew hop up on stage at Life is Beautiful and do their thing. If you’ve never seen the Alabama Shakes live in concert, you’re in for a treat.  Every time I’ve seen them in concert, they haven’t disappointed.  From a small sized tent to a massive festival field and an indoor concert hall, they’ve just crushed it and I can’t wait for them to bring their sweet sound to Life is Beautiful.  Gonna be a rock and roll good time!
