Oliver Stone, Cenk Uygur, Tom Morello, Henry Rollins, and Shepard Fairey -- all progressive heroes and leading forces in their field -- have lent their voices in praising our upcoming investigative documentary Unmanned: America's Drone Wars.
Last night punk rock's biggest overachiever Henry Rollins hosted a benefit for Drop In The Bucket, and a bunch of his friends dropped in to say hello. By 'say hello,' I mean take the stage and shred, and by 'friends' I mean music legends.
Captain Kirk! Sure, he's all sorts of things, too (producer, director, vocalist, novelist, horseman, father -- oh, and mega-icon); but tonight, it's all about the Kirk. Or, more broadly: it's all about Shatner's brand-new documentary, The Captains.
Henry Rollins pounced onto the stage to demonstrate relentless curiosity about the world and concern for it as he performed the first in a series of spoken word shows celebrating his fiftieth birthday.
I never would have imagined that the recent installment of the Miles Davis podcast on JazzOnline.com would set off such a firestorm of debate. But that's what happened when Henry Rollins was added to the mix.
