    Lets twist again! Miller Outdoor Theatre presents Chubby Checker & The Wildcats The legendary Chubby Checker storms the Miller stage with his signature blend of boisterous rock n roll Ernest Evans was born in Spring Gulley, South Carolina, but grew up in South Philadelphia, where he lived with his parents and two brothers When he was a small boy, his mother took him to see Sugar Child Robinson, a child piano prodigy and also the famous country singer Ernest Tubb Young Evans Chubby with His Brothers was so impressed, that he vowed to someday enter show business and took his first step toward that goal by forming a street corner harmony group when he was only 11 years old By the time he entered high school, Ernest had learned to play the piano a little at Settlement Music School and could do a number of vocal impressions He also went to South Philadelphia High School with his friend Fabian Forte, who would have show business success of his own He entertained classmates whenever he could After school, Chubby would sing and crack jokes at his various jobs including Fresh Farm Poultry on 9th Street and at the Produce Market It was Ernest's boss at the Produce Market, Tony A, who gave Ernest the nickname "Chubby" The storeowner of Fresh Farm Poultry, Henry Colt, was so impressed, he began showing off his employee to his customers through a loud speaker Henry and his friend Kal-Mann arranged for young Chubby to do a private recording for Dick Clark A Yuletide novelty tune called, "Jingle Bells" on which Chubby did several impressions of top recording stars, was cut Dick Clark sent it out as a Christmas greeting to all of his friends and associates in the music business Cameo-Parkway liked it so much that they wrote a song called "The Class" and it became Chubby's first hit in early 1959 In June of 1959, Chubby recorded "The Twist" Bernie Lowe, president of Cameo Parkway records was not initially impressed with Chubby's recording and felt it may be a "B" side at best However, Chubby felt "The Twist" was something special and worked hard promoting the record by undertaking non-stop rounds of TV dates, interviews and live performances Fourteen months later, in the summer of 1960, "The Twist" was a hit "The Twist" was not only the #1 song but it introduced the concept of "dancing apart to the beat" Over the next few years, endless songs incorporating "The Twist" into its name sprang up such as "Peppermint Twist", "Twist and Shout" and "Twistin' the Night Away" In addition, each new song brought a new dance involving "dancing apart to the beat" such as "The Jerk", "The Hully Gully", "The Boogaloo" and "The Shake" At the forefront was Chubby with "The Fly", "The Pony" and "The Hucklebuck" The next few years were prolific for Chubby as hit followed hit In 1961, Chubby recorded "Pony Time" written by Don Covay and John Berry It went to #1 and stayed on the charts for 16 weeks In between recording and touring, Chubby took time to add feature films to his portfolio with the releases of "Don't Knock The Twist" and "Twist Around The Clock" In the fall of 1961, record industry history was made when Checker's original hit record, "The Twist", re-entered the charts and by January of 1962, it was back in the #1 position No other record before or since has accomplished that feat Combining its 1960 run with its 1961/62 return, "The Twist" spent an amazing nine month total on the U S best seller charts Chubby Checker merchandise was everywhere, and included T-shirts, shoes, ties, dolls, raincoats, and chewing gum His success continued for years with the release of one dance record after another, with "The Fly" and "Let's Twist Again", for which he won a Grammy for the "Best Rock Performance" More hit records followed "Slow Twistin'", Dancin' Party", "Popeye the Hitchhiker" and "The Limbo Rock" all came along in 1962 1963 saw Checker return to the hit parade with "Birdland" and "Twist It Up", after which he followed with "Loddy Lo" and a series of other novelty type tunes Eventually, teens incorporated these movements to all songs that had a beat and called these movements "The Boogie", a permanent fixture in Rock and Roll and popular Music 24/7 While hits kept coming, the highlight of 1964 was Chubby's marriage to Catharina Lodders, Miss World 1962 The 80's were dominated by almost nonstop touring with some unique twists ABC aired their answer to NBC's Saturday Night Live, a counter culture show called Fridays which starred Michael Richards (Kramer) and Larry David A special appearance by Chubby as he sang his current hit, "Running" (excerpted on his website) was broadcast before a live national audience However, by 1988, Chubby demonstrated extreme musical diversity by recording a very different "Yo Twist" with the Fat Boys This song went to #14 on the charts In 2000, Chubby branched out into the snack food business commemorating 40 years of "The Twist" with Chocolate Checker Bars, Beef Jerky, Hot Dogs, and Popcorn, all to be washed down with Girl of the World Water (dedicated to his wife) The Limbo Rock Remix and The Original Master of The Dance Hall Beat, released in 2004, became top 5 Disney Radio hits and a favorite of DJ's with its ability to bring audiences out of their seats and on to the dance floor With the single and "LP" both on the Billboard charts, a new generation of Chubby Checker fans were born In 2007, Chubby returned to the charts yet again with "Knock Down The Walls", Billboards #1 dance track This song introduced Chubby to a whole new audience with its powerful straight ahead rock tempo and captured Chubby's continuous musical evolution The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio rewarded Chubby in July of 2008 with a special award presentation An honored Chubby thrilled a fervent crowd by performing his hits, new and old, to the delight of everyone A lengthy photo and autograph session followed, which highlighted Chubby's favorite part, getting to interact with people As Chubby's touring continued, 2009 took Chubby abroad including special shows in Germany (2010) as well as his annual appearances at Disneyworld 2009 also marked the release of an updated version of The Fly A younger generation now shook their hands as the dance reappeared in clubs Now we have entered The 50th Anniversary Year of The Twist Special ceremonies have taken place in front of City Hall in Philadelphia and Wildwood, NJ and the 50th Anniversary Tour continues along with a Chubby Checker cruise in May, 2011 What keeps this artist going? According to Chubby, "It's the fans The energy I get from singing and dancing with all these people over the years is unlike anything else I experience I never want it to end" Neither do we Chubby Checker - the only artist to have 5 albums in the Top 12 all at once Chubby Checker First Platinum - "Let's Twist Again" Chubby Checker - the only artist to have a song to be #1 twice - "The Twist" Chubby Checker - the only artist to have 9 Double-Sided Hits Chubby Checker - changed the way we dance to the beat 24/7 since 1959 TWITTER: https://twittercom/chubby_checker Presented by Miller Outdoor Theatre

This the reason I got into this in the first place I love it more than ever Also performing will be Rankins Twins

    Dosey Doe Coffee House presents Spyro Gyra As Spyro Gyra contemplates upcoming milestones to its storied career, its tempting to fall back on the Grateful Dead lyric, What a long strange trip its been to describe it During that time, they have performed over five thousand shows, released twenty-nine albums (not counting Best Of compilations) selling over ten million albums while also achieving one platinum and two gold albums These upcoming milestones include 2012, which will be thirty-five years since their first album release and 2014 will be forty years as a band They show little sign of wanting to slow down either, gaining Grammy nominations for each of their last four albums Born in Brooklyn, bandleader Jay Beckenstein grew up listening to the music of Louis Armstrong, Charlie Parker, Sonny Rollins and Dizzy Gillespie, and started playing the saxophone at age seven Beckenstein attended the University at Buffalo, starting out as a biology major before changing to music performance (read classical and avant garde) During summer breaks, he and an old high school friend, keyboardist Jeremy Wall, played gigs together back on Long Island Wall attended college in California, and after both graduated, Beckenstein stayed in Buffalos thriving music scene, where Wall eventually joined him "Not many people know it, but Buffalo was like a mini Chicago back then, with a smoking blues, soul, jazz, even rockabilly scene, of all things," Beckenstein muses "After being confined to classical music for so long, it was heaven I was in the horn sections around town, backing some great vocalists" Spyro Gyra, whose odd name has since become world famous, was first known simply as Tuesday Night Jazz Jams, a forum wherein Beckenstein and Wall were joined by a rotating cast of characters Tuesday just happened to be the night when most musicians werent playing other gigs to pay their bills Around this time, a young keyboardist named Tom Schuman began sitting in when he was only sixteen years old This young man, of course, remains a member to this day "Don't forget the interminable Dead-like solos we were taking," Beckenstein cracks "We were the kings of self-indulgence, but eventually we earned our right to charge a quarter at the door It was a complete shock when word of our psychosis got out and we started packing them in!" The groups increasing popularity combined with the purchase of a new sign for the club prompted the owner to insist that Beckenstein come up with a name for his band It began as a joke I said spirogyra, he misspelled it, and here we are thirty years later In retrospect, its okay In a way, it sounds like what we do It sounds like motion and energy In their earliest days, Spyro Gyra took their cues from Weather Report and Return to Forever bands whose creative flights were fueled by a willingness to do things that had never been done before I believed that we were springing from what Weather Report did, says Beckenstein I never thought in commercial terms I just thought they were the next step in the evolution of jazz, and that we would be part of it The first few years saw the groups identity split into a dynamic live act and a producer centric recording process, borne out of the rotating cast of characters in the jazz jam beginnings These albums were the product of the band and a great number of the top session players in New York In 1983, Beckenstein made the decision to make the albums the work of the band members he shared the stage with night after night, only supplementing with occasional guests There were several personnel changes in the 1980s, which slowed down about twenty years ago  Julio Fernandez became the groups guitarist in 1984 and, except for a short hiatus at the end of that decade, has continued in that position Scott Ambush became the bands bass player in 1991 making this the beginning of his third decade in the band Bonny Bonaparte joined the band in 2006 making him the new guy at five years "When we first started," Beckenstein recalls, "a lot of the jazz purists got on our case about calling what we did jazz and now it's funny to hear us getting respect from the same people Like, wow, what you guys did was so much more intriguing than some of the stuff they hear today Art manifests itself in a multitude of styles and contexts Isn't that why we started to play in the first place?" In 1977, they foreshadowed the DIY movement of the punks of the 1970s by self-releasing their eponymous debut album Spyro Gyra was picked up by Amherst Records, a local label who then made a deal for subsequent albums to go to Infinity Records, a label owned by MCA Records After gaining Infinity its only gold (soon to be platinum) record with Morning Dance, Infinity folded and the group was picked up by MCA Records There they stayed until MCA acquired noted contemporary jazz label GRP Records Spyro Gyra moved to GRP in 1990 and put out all but one of their 1990s output on that label In 1999, they released a single album, Got The Magic on Windham Hill Jazz The aughts had them returning to an indie mode, licensing their albums to Heads Up International Most of those Heads Up albums have since returned to the band as self released independent releases 2011 sees them returning to Amherst Records in Buffalo with A Foreign Affair My hope is that our music has the same effect on the audience that it does on me, says Beckenstein Ive always felt that music, and particularly instrumental music, has this non-literal quality that lets people travel to a place where there are no words Whether its touching their emotions or connecting them to something that reminds them of something much bigger than themselves, theres this beauty in music thats not connected to sentences Its very transportive I would hope that when people hear our music or come to see us, theyre able to share that with us Thats the truly glorious part of being a musician TWITTER: https://twittercom/spyrogyragroup

    The University of Houston presents The Tenors Under One Sky Tour  Wednesday, October 21 @ 8:00 pm in Cullen Performance Hall on the University of Houston campus Get ready to hear The Tenors like youve never heard them before On their new album, Under One Sky, the multi-platinum Juno-award winning foursome co-wrote eight tunes, showing facets of themselves theyve longed to share with their millions of fans Weve had eight years together and we wanted to turn those memories into music, says Clifton Murray, who is joined in The Tenors by Victor Micallef, Remigio Pereira and Fraser Walters The Canadian group has written a handful of songs for their previous three sets, but Under One Sky marks the first time their songwriting talents stand toe-to-toe with their vocal prowess In the process, theyve created a rich collection that expands on their earlier efforts, while delving deeper into their collective strength as artists That this band has been seen as just four singers is a bit of a misconception, said Pereira When you peel away the onion, you get many layers With each album, we built more confidence to write for ourselves The four members wrote individually and in pairs, often teaming with top co-writers including Walter Afanasieff (Mariah Carey, Josh Groban) and Steve Diamond (Faith Hill, Eric Clapton) Tenor groups arent known for going out and writing like a band, said Micallef We came to the table as singers, but were also songwriters and musicians and were using all our talents, not just our voices, onstage We get to show all our colours Thats not to say they are abandoning the blueprint that made them beloved Under One Skys material covers the full range of tunes that have made The Tenors one of the most popular live draws across the globe In addition to the originals, Under One Sky includes the foursomes reinventions of contemporary classics like Lean on Me and You Are So Beautiful, a swoon-worthy duet featuring Walters wife, Kelly Levesque, as well as their glorious interpretations of classical pieces Granada, Besame Mucho and Agnus Dei Over the years, The Tenors musical diversity has become one of their primary strengths There used to be hesitation because we didnt want to confuse our audience by introducing too many different genres into one show or CD, but weve learned that this was one of our greatest strengths, which, in fact, the audience craves, said Micallef Were not targeting any one audience; were just playing from our heart Walters began writing the title track, credited to all four Tenors, as a theme for the Pan Am Games, reflecting on Walters experience on Canadas national track and field team 15 years ago But the reflective upbeat tune morphed into something more universal Its a song with a big message, said Walters The goal for anyone who hears it is to realize that in our world, we have a choice to focus on our differences or on our similarities Its an anthemic song about bringing people together He also sees the song as emblematic of The Tenors themselves and the way they have brought their different styles together into one harmonious blend Cliff and I are more pop singers, Vic and Remi are more classical, said Walters We meet in the middle The albums emotional centerpiece is My Fathers Son, a song written by The Tenors with Asher Lenz as a tribute to their own dads We just finished our PBS special and during that song, we all had moments where we broke down, said Micallef It was emotionally challenging to sing while watching images of our fathers on screen, for those of us who have lost them It was even more difficult to look into the eyes of my son just after the fact Its a powerful tune That poignancy and ability to express such feelings through their euphonious voices is what deeply connects The Tenors to their fans Our songs are inspirational Theyre about goodness and helping others and about love, said Pereira A lot of people who listen to us have come through a lot of strife and they find wisdom and hope in our music Since their formation in 2007, The Tenors have performed more than 500 concerts on five continents and made over 150 television appearances, including on The Oprah Winfrey Show (with Celine Dion), at the 2014 National Christmas Tree Lighting at the White House, at the 2014 Stanley Cup Finals, the 2012 Emmy Awards, Her Majesty The Queens 2012 Diamond Jubilee at Windsor Castle in England, and the 2010 Vancouver Olympic opening ceremonies They have shared the stage with such artists as Andrea Bocelli, Sting, Elton John, Paul McCartney, Jennifer Hudson, Ellie Goulding, Justin Bieber, Earth, Wind & Fire and more The Tenors first album is certified double platinum, and their holiday album is certified triple platinum in Canada Their third album, 2012s Lead With Your Heart, went double platinum, won a 2013 JUNO Award for Adult Contemporary Album of the Year and debuted at No 1 on Billboards Classical and Classical Crossover charts They have sold almost one million albums around the world The band created Under One Sky over an 18-month period, recording in Ontario, Los Angeles and Nashville with seven producers, including David Foster (Michael Buble, Celine Dion), Bob Ezrin (Peter Gabriel, Pink Floyd) and Keith Thomas (Blake Shelton, Luther Vandross) For every producer, it really came down to looking at their track record, their sounds, their strengths and fitting them with the right songs, said Murray Regardless of the producer, The Tenors exposed their vulnerability through their music, giving it their all in the studio The songs have everyones blood, sweat and tears on them, said Pereira This is what we want to show people Its very humbling Its like walking out of your house naked Youre opening yourself up and youre bearing yourself Following the albums May 4 release, in June PBS stations across the US will begin airing the quartets third special, Under One Sky The special gives a taste of what to expect when The Tenors hit the road In the past, the PBS sets didnt have anything to do with the tour, said Micallef This time, the ideas are the same, the stage design is similar The Tenors will kick off a 70-city North American tour in September, including stadium shows in Canada, and cant wait to perform their new material We were thinking about the live show with this album, said Walters When you come to the live show you get so many pockets of different styles, and we love to show our humor by interacting with our audience Thats why people seem to gravitate towards us Youll hear us go from something more pop to something thats in Italian or Spanish with a big sound As they continue to evolve, The Tenors have a firm grasp on moving forward, while never forgetting what unites them with their audience Our goal is longevityto be doing this in 15 to 20 years time, said Murray The only way to do this is to create memorable music that people cherish With Under One Sky, The Tenors have once again done just that, bringing all their musical worlds together for all to enjoy TWITTER: https://twittercom/tenorsmusic TWITTER: https://twittercom/remigiopereira TWITTER: https://twittercom/victormicallef TWITTER: https://twittercom/fraserwalters TWITTER: https://twittercom/cliftonmurray

    The Dosey Doe Coffee House MUSIC CAFE presents Stu Hamm - solo Through his innovative work as a solo artist and his contributions as a sideman to Joe Satriani and Steve Vai, Stuart Hamm has firmly established himself as one of the most influential electric bassists of the past half-century Extending the non-traditional function of the electric bass previously revolutionized by Jaco Pastorius and Stanley Clarke in the 1970s, Hamm helped to reshape the contemporary concept of the bass guitar as an unaccompanied instrument with the utilization of polyphonic, two-handed tapping, slapping and popping techniques, chords, and harmonics Although Hamm certainly wasnt the first bass player to debut during the 1980s and employ an unorthodox approach to playing the electric bass, he was undoubtedly at the forefront of his generation who effectively fused the application of these unconventional techniques As one of todays leading bassists, Hamm has released four critically-acclaimed studio recordings On Radio Free Albemuth (1988), Kings Of Sleep (1989), The Urge (1991), and Outbound (2000), Hamm showcased his unique style of playing the bass as a lead instrument both within a solo environment and various ensemble formats on a genre-spanning spectrum of repertoire that merged rock, jazz, fusion, classical, country, and urban sounds Live Stu X 2, the fifth solo project produced by Hamm and his first as a solo artist in nearly seven years, was released in January 2007 and features a diverse compilation of classic tracks recorded by Hamm during his set on the first leg of the Bx3 tour in Philadelphia last April as well as a few previously unrecorded pieces that were captured in San Francisco before a live audience in 2004 In addition to his barrier-breaking solo sessions, Hamm has been hailed for his recording and touring stints with guitar icons Joe Satriani and Steve Vai His long-time associations with Vai and Satriani garneredHamm award-winning recognition on a global scale, and as a result, Hamm has received an extensive list of accolades such as being voted Best Jazz Bassist and Best Rock Bassist multiple times in magazine polls conducted by several major print publications Besides his projects with Satriani and Vai, other studio-related productions that have spotlighted Hamms trademark style and technical facility include his three collaborations as a member of the trio dubbed GHS with guitarist Frank Gambale of Chick Coreas Elektric Band and former Journey drummer Steve Smith For the past two decades, Hamm has toured as one of the worlds premier bass clinicians He has also demonstrated his signature techniques and methodologies to avid students through his best-selling instructional videos, Slap, Pop & Tap For The Bass and Deeper Inside The Bass, and a book of transcriptions, Stuart Hamm The Bass Book, which contains a collection of Hamms greatest hits from his first three solo releases He has also created an introductory course to bass guitar called Bass Basics with the folks at TrueFirecom Based on the highly successful G3 tours he was a part of in the 1990s which featured guitarists Satriani, Vai, and Eric Johnson, Hamm founded the Bx3 tour in April 2006 that has subsequently taken him along with fellow bass pioneers Billy Sheehan and Jeff Berlin from the United States to Asia TWITTER: https://twittercom/StuHammBass

    Dosey Doe Coffee House MUSIC CAFE presents presents Mark Jones - solo In the ever changing environment of Texas music, it's more important than ever to stand out from the crowd Having a 6'7" lead singer goes a long way in helping Mark Jones and Twenty Paces stand out from the crowd, or at least above it Already in XXP's short life as a band they've drawn comparisons to regional acts such as Brandon Rhyder and Wade Bowen They're more Tom Petty than they are George Strait, but more Michael Martin Murphy than Lynyrd Skynyrd More Train than Bob Wills, but more Clint Black than Led Zeppelin However if asked to list their influences, all of those names are going to come up in the conversation at some point Comprised of Mark Jones (vocals, guitar, mandolin), Randy Riddick (bass), Wayne McCrary (guitar), and Matthew Jones (percussion), this four piece, Houston based outfit has just completed a live EP (recorded at Dosey Doe's in The Woodlands, Tx) and is set to assume a full touring schedule Take the time to listen to the music or come to a show and judge for yourself The band's mantra is simple, "We play two kinds of songs The one's we write, and the one's we like We hope one of them becomes your favorite"

    Dosey Doe Coffee House presents Phil Vassar Phil Vassar is as driven today as he was when he first left his Lynchburg, Virginia home to pursue and realize his dream of making his mark in entertainment A career that has seen the release of eight albums, two ASCAP Songwriter of the Year trophies, Billboard Country Songwriter of the Year, countless hits as a singer and songwriter and a mantle full of awards and the launch of his own Rodeowave Entertainment label continues to expand and evolve As a singer/songwriter, Phil has hit the Top 5 seven times with songs like Carlene, Last Day of My Life and American Child and topped the charts with In A Real Love and the perennial favorite Just Another Day in Paradise Known as one of Nashvilles top tunesmiths, his songs other artists have taken to #1 include My Next Thirty Years by Tim McGraw, Shes Right On The Money by Alan Jackson, and Jo Dee Messinas Bye, Bye and Im Alright New artist David Nail had a hit with Phils The Sound of a Million Dreams, which Billboard named the #1 song in their Top 10 Country Songs of 2012 Vassar continues to churn out incisive, soulful lyrics and infectious melodies that capture the heart and soul in the unique and special way that only he can, and his latest single, Love Is Alive, is no exception Written with frequent co-writer, the award-winning Tom Douglas (The House That Built Me, Little Rock, I Run To You), the new release is the foundation for a much-anticipated new album that will hit stores on Rodeowave in mid-2013 For Vassar, his philosophy about songs has never changed during his time spent writing hits for himself and other artists, its important for a song to carry a message and make the listener feel something Songs should evoke something, whether it makes you happy and puts you in a good mood, or makes you cry and feel desperationyou know, whether youre going through a marriage, or a divorce, or youre in love or you hate somebody, or whatever it is songs should evoke something, says Vassar And if its just having a drink with your friends in the hot tub, thats just as good as any song for me! I mean, Ive had hits with every kind of song ballads, mid-tempos, up-tempos and silly kinds of songs You cant save the whales with every song you write, thats too heavy for me, he adds, laughing I honestly dont think Ive written my best songs yet, he added His critically-acclaimed holiday release Noel included five original and five classic songs and a slight dose of irreverence Sandwiched between Away in a Manger and Ill Be Home For Christmas, Santas Gone Hollywood is an equal opportunity offender for everything good and pure about jolly ole St Nick He supported the album with a Christmas tour, which he plans to make an annual event The Virginia native, who received the 2012 VAB Distinguished Virginian Award by the Virginia Association of Broadcasters is definitely no stranger to a good time, and he makes sure with every performance that his fans feel exactly the same way Years of playing clubs, and even owning his own nightspot at one point, helped Phil cultivate the easygoing, fun-loving manner he displays onstage and the infectious energy that infuses every single show he does Ive always prided myself on writing a lot of different types of songs, while some people may like to play it safe, I prefer diversity So its about new energy and doing different things, getting away from the old ways and starting fresh, thats what weve been able to do with Rodeowave Excited at the limitless possibilities of the freedom of running his own label, he is also extending the knowledge and experience he has gained over the years to other artists The full-service record label/promotions/management company not only handles details of his own career but has promoted music by The Lumineers, Neal McCoy, and new artists Miss Willie Brown, High Valley, Old Dominion and Sam Riddle The company is also the launch pad for television and film projects A new movie called Fat Biscuit will begin shooting in the fall of 2013 His love of travel, food and meeting new people heavily influenced a tv project currently in production No stranger to television, Phil was nominated for an Emmy Award in the "Outstanding Original Song" category for his composition "Live For Today," which performed and produced for a recurring series on NBC's Today Show When not on the road performing for adoring fans or at home taking care of the business that surrounds Phil Vassar, he can be found picking up his two daughters from school and spending the afternoon just being Dad His heart for children extends well beyond his immediate family, and 2013 marks the sixth year he has performed a benefit concert for The Miller Home for girls in his hometown He has been a featured artist on Charlie Daniels annual Christmas 4 Kids concert, and he regularly lends his time, talent and name to organizations like St Jude Childrens Research Hospital, Monroe Carell, Jr Childrens Hospital at Vanderbilt, Second Harvest Food Bank and more Phil Vassar is an artist who has endured his share of ups and downs in life and the biz, and one who is not only riding a diverse wave of success but sharing it with others Im not going out there to try and change the world, but for me, this is my thing, this is my little world that I can control now, and Im really excited about this journey, getting new music out to the fans and working on other avenues to entertain people For me thats what its all about TWITTER: https://twittercom/philvassar

Neil Young on Trump: 'I Make My Music for People Not for Candidates'

Neil Young's not happy about Donald Trump using his iconic anthem "Rockin' in the Free World" to announce his candidacy, or really any of American politics in general for that matter.
