A couple of weeks ago I posted about the unfortunate passing of former Drivin' n" Cryin' guitarist Buren Fowler passing away. Buren was also guitar tech/2nd guitar live for R.E.M.. Over the weekend a tribute concert for Buren was held at The 40 Watt Club in Athens, Ga. Here is a video of R.E.M.'s Mike Mills joining DnC on stage to do "(Don't Go Back To) Rockville".
Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda is one of the leaders of a new company in Haiti called Sustainable Recycling Solutions. SRS provides Haitians with jobs where they collect plastics and other recyclables that later get turned into clothing and other goods. Recently Bill Clinton took a tour. If you weren't a fan of Linkin Park before you might change your mind.
