[PRESS] ACTIVISTS ASK PRESIDENT OBAMA & SECRETARY SALAZAR TO STOP THE ASSAULT ON THE AMERICAN'S WILD HORSES AND BURROS

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
November 20, 2009
2:05 PM

Musician Sheryl Crow, Actors Ed Harris, Wendie Malick, and Over 100 Organizations Demand Roundup Moratorium, Protesting Nevada’s Calico Complex Roundup to begin December 1

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO - November 20 - Sheryl Crow speaks out for the wild horses and burros on America’s public lands in the west. The multi-GRAMMY®-winning singer-songwriter and mustang owner joins The Cloud Foundation, over 130 organizations, scientists, authors and celebrity supporters calling on President Obama, Members of Congress and the Department of Interior to place an immediate moratorium on all wild horse and burro roundups until a long-term and humane policy to manage the animals is developed.

“With one voice we are insisting that our government stop managing these beautiful and important animals to extinction” —Sheryl Crow

The Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) removal plan for Nevada’s Calico Complex wild mustangs is fueling outrage across the country and internationally. In a unified sign-on letter (full text below), wild horse supporters outline their opposition to the Obama Administration's October 7, 2009 announcement (http://www.doi.gov/news/09_News_Releases/100709.html) regarding the management of wild horses and burros. Groups oppose moving 26,000 wild horses to purchased lands in the east and the current government practice of removing entire wild horse and burros herds from public lands specifically designated for the animals by Congress in 1971.

 “We ask that President Obama or Secretary Salazar cease all BLM roundups as of this date to prevent further suffering.  We request that the government and BLM begin to work in good faith with wild horse advocates for a sustainable solution. The Calico Roundup, scheduled to begin in December and continue through the dead of winter, is inhumane and must be stopped!” —Sheryl Crow

Upon hearing about the BLM’s plans for the large-scale removal of 2,500 horses in northwest Nevada near the Black Rock Desert, more than seven thousand citizens submitted public comments to the BLM opposing the Calico Mountain Complex Round Up, scheduled to begin on December 1, 2009. Public comment has been extended through November 22, 2009 according to the BLM.

Currently more than 33,000 wild horses are stockpiled in government holding facilities at a cost to taxpayers of $100,000 a day. The scheduled removal of 2,500 from Nevada will bring that total to more than 35,000.

“We already have enough wild horses in pens. Adding more horses to those already held in confinement, when they are much safer on the range is shortsighted, inhumane and fiscally irresponsible.”—Ginger Kathrens, Emmy Award Filmmaker & Volunteer Executive Director of the Cloud Foundation.

The BLM will pay the private contractor $610 per horse rounded up for an estimated total of nearly $2 million for the Calico roundup alone according to BLM spokesperson, Tom Gorey. Branding, vaccinating, sterilizing and processing of horses to be placed in government holding will cost several million more. The BLM hired the same contractor for the controversial roundup of the famous stallion, Cloud, and his Pryor Mountain herd in September, 2009. Bands including two-month-old foals were chased down off the mountaintop by helicopter for 10-15 miles in more than 90 degree heat resulting in trauma and lameness. (http://www.thecloudfoundation.org/index.php/news-events-a-media/youtube-videos/146-lamefoal)

"The government is acting in defiance of the spirit and intent of the 1971 Free Roaming Wild Horses and Burros Act which Congress passed unanimously —Julianne French, wild horse advocate. (http://www.wildhorseandburro.blm.gov/92-195.htm)

The 1971 Act preserves wild horses and burros in over 300 areas of publicly owned rangeland in the west, forbidding their exploitation, harassment and removal. Regardless, only 30 million acres remain of the 54 million acres designated primarily for wild horse use in 1971. Over 100 herds have been  completely removed by the BLM and most remaining herds are too small to insure their long-term survival. The BLM's current policy of eradicating these herds is a betrayal of the wishes of the American public.

Sheryl Crow, with wild mustang and burro supporters, calls the public to action urging all to write, e-mail, fax and phone Secretary of the Interior, Ken Salazar, their congressional representatives and President Obama. The list of contact phones, e-mails, faxes and mailing addresses is online here. (http://www.thecloudfoundation.org/index.php/news-events-a-media/action-alerts/198-government-contacts)

“Its time for all of us to speak up for our Wild Horses and Burros so we do not lose these living legends and inspiring symbols of our freedom in America.” —Sheryl Crow

[GREAT NEWS] INTERVIEW WITH SHERYL CROW BY DEAN GOODMAN (REUTERS)

..... From Dean Goodman's Myspace Blog

I got patched through to Sheryl on Nov. 13, to discuss the deluxe reissue of her official 1994 debut "Tuesday Night Music Club," which is actually an album I never owned until the label sent me the advance a few days earlier -- though I do have the advance cassette from back in the day. I've seen her a ton of times, mostly opening for or playing with the Stones all over the world, but never spoken to her one-on-one. Unless you count my feeble attempt to chat her up at some party years ago. We also talked about her career, various controversies and future plans, as well as Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan. I wish I could have had longer, but 15-20 minutes was all we could squeeze in before she sped off to tape "The Jay Leno Show."

WHAT WAS THE EXTENT OF YOUR INVOLVEMENT WITH THIS REISSUE?
    
 To be perfectly honest I listened to outtakes and I listened to mixes, but I didn't go into the studio and work with Bill (Bottrell, the producer) on these. He basically was left to his own devices and loved every second of it. [....]

READ THE FULL INTERVIEW >>

Now that's what i call a well balanced yet informative interview! Thanks Mr. Goodman!

[NEWS] WIN, WIN: CHOCOLATE AND USUAL SUSPECTS - CLAY COUNTY DEMOCRAT

Wednesday, November 18, 2009
By The Democrat News Staff

It won't be Sheryl Crow, but it may be the next best thing.

Sheryl's dad, Wendell Crow of Kennett, and other members of the popular band The Usual Suspects, will be featured at the Clay County Arts Council's 2009 Night of Chocolate, set Saturday night, Dec. 5, at the Rector Community Center.

Playing music termed "blues-based, good time music," The Usual Suspects also includes Kennett musicians Jim Baker, vocals and lead guitar; Ken Williams, vocals, harmonica and drums; Daryl Wilcoxson, vocals and keyboards; Gary Wilcoxson, vocals and bass guitar; Memphis music veteran (and former Kennett resident) Dunk Carter, vocals and lead guitar, and Crow, on the trumpet and rhythm guitar.

Ashley Wilcoxson, daughter of Daryl and an up-and-coming singer in Nashville, usually sits in with The Usual Suspects.

Over the last three decades, these musicians and good friends have played together in different configurations in the rock, country and gospel music fields. In 2003 this particular lineup got together on stage as "The Usual Suspects" for Little River Fest, concentrating on their first love -- blues-based music with a rock edge.

"For the most part, we weren't really that familiar with the blues," said Daryl Wilcoxson. "Jim Baker was probably the one who knew more of the songs and he worked with the rest of us. It actually worked out pretty good. They were teaching Wendell how to play guitar at the time, and they were taking a blues approach with that."

In preparation for their first performance, the group truly jelled, something which was evident on stage.

Since then The Usual Suspects have played many regional shows, including serving as the backup band for Sheryl Crow at the dedication of the Sheryl Crow Aquatic Center in Kennett.

"We've performed with her about five times," Wilcoxson said. "Sometimes when she comes down, we'll get together and jam. We all have a good time. I think it's a nice break for her."

Their annual summer show at BB Kings Blues Club on Beale Street in Memphis has become one of the "must attend" events of the year. Their 2003 show at BB's was named in the Best of the Best list by the Memphis Flyer Magazine.

Individually and collectively, The Usual Suspects have backed up or opened shows for Sheryl Crow, Johnny Cash, Rufus Thomas, Waylon Jennings, Black Oak Arkansas, Narvel Felts, Brenda Lee, The Jordanaires, The Gentrys, The Boxtops, Billy Swan, Sonny Burgess, The Guess Who, Bobby Vee, Rick Dees, Degarrmo-Key Band, John Hartford, Travis Wommack and many, many others.

Band members have played on the stage of the Ryman Theater, played on the Grand Ole Opry stage and appeared on a Grammy-winning platinum album. Members of the band have recorded in major Nashville, Memphis and L.A. recording studios.

Whether playing Beale Street, a regional festival or in their Super Secret Music Room (all guests who play there must autograph the inside of the door), The Usual Suspects are about friendship, good times and good music.

"It's a lot of fun," Wilcoxson said. "We're just some old musicians trying to have a good time. We don't take ourselves too seriously up there. It's just a way for us to get together and do something we love to do."

The Night of Chocolate also will include a delicious meal catered by the Traveling Whisk, a holiday fashion show and a dance competition. In addition there will be a wonderful auction with items provided by local merchants for the council's scholarship fund.

"You will not want to miss the featured entertainment, The Usual Suspects," said council president Gail Burns. Those who wish to reserve tickets may contact Burns at 870-595-1444 or Peggy Smart in Piggott.

[REVIEW] TUESDAY NIGHT MUSIC CLUB, DELUXE EDITION - ROLLING STONES MAGAZINE

Before she became the omnipresent babe at grizzled-rock-star reunions, Sheryl Crow was a Missouri gal with a big voice, a mutable country-rock countenance and a lust for pop hooks. The loping "Leaving Las Vegas" launched her eclectic Grammy-sweeping 1993 debut, which also had L.A. folk funk, piano-bar blues, even a Dylan-cum-R.E.M. "rap" ("The Na-Na Song"). The bonus disc doesn't exhume her never-released 1992 album (try the Internet), but it has worthy takes on Eric Carmen's 1975 power ballad "All by Myself" and Led Zep's "D'yer Mak'er" — bold strokes from a singer swingin' for the bleachers.

[REVIEW] TUESDAY NIGHT MUSIC CLUB, DELUXE EDITION - ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH

By Kevin C. Johnson
Post-Dispatch pop music critic
11/15/2009

Rocker Sheryl Crow never banked on her 1993 album "Tuesday Night Music Club" being a game-changing breakthrough.

"I really don't know what to expect," Crow told the Post-Dispatch during the album's release week, when the Kennett, Mo., native, was living in the Central West End. "Anything is possible. Not ever having had a record of my own out before, everything is new to me at this point."

No one could have predicted what was coming. Released Aug. 3, 1993, the album was named after the musicians collective that helped create it, including producer Bill Bottrell, multi-instrumentalist Kevin Gilbert, bassist Dan Schwartz, drummer Brian Macleod, and guitarists David Baerwald and Dave Ricketts.

The CD, as defining and massive for Crow as it was controversial and tragic, pumped out hit after hit: "All I Wanna Do," "Leaving Las Vegas," "Strong Enough," "Can't Cry Anymore." Grammy came calling with trophies for best new artist, record of the year and best female pop vocal performance. The CD kicked off Crow's long-running love affair with the awards.

This week, "Tuesday Night Music Club" is being re-released in a special deluxe edition.

Crow's sales of over 7 million for the original "Tuesday Night Music Club" remain her best. The CD perfectly showcased the blossoming Crow, who kept things roots-rocky while still managing to be diverse over the 11 tracks.

"Tuesday Night Music Club" moved around fluidly, from the shuffling "Leaving Las Vegas" to the twangy "Strong Enough" and "No One Said It Would Be Easy," the jazz-tinged "We Do What We Can," the heartfelt "Can't Cry Anymore" and, of course, the infectious "All I Wanna Do."

"Somehow, amid the dance divas of MTV and the dark angst of Seattle grunge, Sheryl's salty voice, twangy Telecaster, frayed Levis, red curls and bent upper lip scratched their way into the musical culture," said Crow's manager, Scooter Weintraub.

The new deluxe edition features three discs: the original CD; a second CD of unreleased music, outtakes and rarities; and a DVD of videos from "Tuesday Night Music Club."

The second CD is the real treat here and justifies again buying "Tuesday Night Music Club." The first song, the imperfectly lovely "Coffee Shop," was originally intended for "Sheryl Crow," the singer's follow-up album, but failed to make the cut.

"Killer Life," another song intended for Crow's sophomore effort, pulsates vibrantly, as does the Steely Dan-like "Essential Trip of Hereness." The last of the songs meant for her second CD is the folksy "You Want More." These songs are strong enough to make one wonder why they didn't make it onto "Sheryl Crow."

The bonus CD also features U.K. B-sides "Reach Around Jerk," guaranteed to make listeners swoon; "Volvo Cowgirl 99," described as an alternate to "The Na-Na Song"; and an unnecessary piano- and guitar-driven cover of Eric Carmen's "All My Myself."

More interesting, yet simple, is her cover of Led Zeppelin's "D'yer Mak'er."

"On the Outside" is lifted from the "X-Files" TV-soundtrack album, and a new version of "I Shall Believe" is specially and gorgeously remixed by Bottrell.

All the fuss, past and present, is about an album that wasn't supposed to happen the way it did.

Crow originally concocted another album meant for her A&M debut, then scrapped it in favor of what would become "Tuesday Night Music Club."

"Listening to that (original) album now, it could be any female singer in the world," Crow told the Post-Dispatch in that 1993 interview. "But it's a testament to A&M's belief in nurturing new artists that they gave me the opportunity to go back in to find out who I really was."

But "Tuesday Night Music Club" didn't come without scandal. Her band felt left out of Crow's sudden elevation to the top of the music world. They said Crow took more credit for the songs than she deserved.

Things reportedly hit the fan after a performance of "Leaving Las Vegas" on David Letterman's show. Letterman asked Crow whether the song was autobiographical and she answered yes, then corrected herself a bit. The song was a collaborative effort credited on the CD to Crow, Bottrell, Baerwald, Gilbert and Ricketts.

Baerwald's contribution to the song was based on the novel of the same name by his friend John O'Brien, who committed suicide not long after learning that "Leaving Las Vegas" was to be made into a movie that starred Nicolas Cage.

"My press really changed. I went from being the underdog to being the person to be ripped apart," Crow, during a 1997 Post-Dispatch interview, said of that period.

"I didn't know how to deal with that. What's really helped me is isolating myself from the whole press thing and actually just not doing very much of it."

There was more controversy. Gilbert, Crow's boyfriend during the recording of "Tuesday Night Music Club," died of autoerotic asphyxiation in 1996, four months before Crow released her second, self-titled CD, which featured a different musical lineup. Some say Gilbert never got over the disputes between Crow and the original b

A Rolling Stone cover story the same year prompted Crow to say that "all they wanted to talk about was the 'Tuesday Night Music Club' scandal and all that stuff."

She told the magazine that the behind-the-scenes fighting took its toll on her.

"It's unfortunate in some ways that the record did so well, because I lost friends over it," Crow said.

Now, it's time to celebrate all that was good about "Tuesday Night Music Club," and that's what the deluxe edition does:

Live from Greenbuild 2009: Al Gore inspires and Sheryl Crow rocks

Source: Yellowstone Eco-travel Examiner

After an exhausting day spent browsing the expansive tradeshow or sitting in several educational sessions, Greenbuild participants headed to Chase Field for an opening celebration, which included a keynote address from Al Gore and a special concert from Sheryl Crow.

U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) President and CEO Rick Fedrizzi opened the event and spoke to the crowd about the importance of leveraging green buildings to “improve lives, heal our planet, and ensure our future.” He introduced green building leaders from throughout the world—Australia, South Africa, Canada, United Kingdom, New Zealand, Germany, Italy, India, Mexico, Taiwan, and Brazil—who all shared engaging stories of sustainable projects in their countries.

Former Vice President Al Gore arrived on stage to a standing ovation and delivered an engaging message focused on the imperative action needed to combat climate change. “This is a challenge to our system of democracy. We need to get active and engaged and do something about it.” He warned that the “alternative to failure in Copenhagen is unacceptable” and urged the crowd to ensure that our government takes action. “We need to change our light bulbs, but we also need to change our laws and policy.”

Climate change transcends politics and party lines, he asserted: “We’re all in this together—we don’t need to be fighting about this.”  He quoted an African proverb: “If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” Gore ended his address with a message of hope: “We can solve this crisis. We have the tools we need to solve three or four climate crises and we need to only solve one.” He urged the audience to take action so when future generations look back to this critical juncture, they’ll be able to consider us with admiration for finding the moral courage to solve the issue of climate change.

After his speech, Gore returned to the stage to welcome (and hug) singer and fellow environmentalist Sheryl Crow, who entertained the Greenbuild audience with an hour-long concert that included most of her popular songs. During “Are You Strong Enough to be My Man,” Crow ad-libbed to ask the crowd, “Are you strong enough to recycle? Are you strong enough to drive a Prius?” And to prove that even “tree huggers” can rock, she finished the show with an energetic cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Rock and Roll” and the audience shouted every “been a long time, been a long time” right along with her.
