Hello everyone, how are you? I am Cool. If you have been wondering how my studies of blues and rock are going, well their moving right along. What I am posting about today is the Haiti tragedy. By now everyone is familiar with the crisis and has seen the heartbreaking coverage of the aftermath of the earthquake. I am delighted to see the out pouring of help from all over the world to this island nation. I know that the music community will step up and contribute. I was just wondering what the Rock and Metal community was going to do? I came up with an idea. how about a relief CD with 10 songs that would inspire and encourage the fans to do their share to help. so I put on my executive producer’s hat on came up with 10 tracks that move me and maybe you to!!
1. “Rise Today” by Alterbridge
I like this track because it is a ‘call to arms’!!
2. “Overcome” by Creed
I chose this one because It moves you into action!!
3. “Sins of Omission” by Testament
I think the U.S. ignored Haiti in the past!!
4. “I disappear” by Metallica
In the past the U.S. has disappeared on issues regarding Haiti!!
5. “Watch the Children Prey” by MetalChurch
The children caught in this disaster are the worst off.
6. “Knocking on Heaven’s Door” by Guns and Roses
I must face the fact that for some it is too late. But…
7. “New Day” by Richie Kotzen
today is a New Day “Where love is alive.” We can make a difference!!
8. “Never Walk Alone..A Call to Arms” by Megadeth
We must let the people of Haiti know that we can rebuild together!!
9. “Stairway to Heaven” by LedZepplin
We will help Haiti get to a peaceful existence.
10. “Turning Away” by Pink Floyd
We must give attention to problems at home and abroad!!
Well that is my compilation CD proceeds from it would go to aid the earthquake victims. Hey if you want to add your own ideas they are welcome. I have not gone to the final mix 🙂
