So this week, during the Concert For Valor, Bruce Springsteen and others sang Fortunate Son, the anti-war song by Creedence Clearwater Revival. He also did Born In The U.S.A. Both songs, if you read the lyrics, are very negative towards not just the war, but America. No matter your view on war, this was not the place for these types of songs to be played. The concert is for military heroes who have served this great nation of ours and defended our freedoms. No need for this type of protest for these veterans to hear. Just my two cents and all of the artists that performed on Fortunate Son (David Grohl, Zac Brown Band), should be ashamed of themselves, because to me it was a slap in the face to those who have given up their lives and helped make us what we are today. Rant over.
Jethro Tull is releasing the 40th anniversary of Warchild. The actual name of the release is Warchild: The 40th Anniversary Theatre Edition, 2 CD/2 DVD set, which comes out on November 24. You can pre-order it here: http://jethrotull.com

Last week’s Rockucation question was: What did Roger Dean, Derek Riggs, Storm Thorgerson, Dennis Woloch, Heinz Edelmann, Roger Huyssen, Ken Kelly and Frank Frazetta do in the rock world that helped them become known in the music industry? David Englund from Warwick, RI got this one, they are illustrators and/or artists. Most of these artists are well known. They have designed some of the album covers that we all love, like Boston, Yes, and KISS. You should google each of them and others to see what album art they have designed.
