Redbone: Help Get Them Into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame1100 Rock and Roll BoulevardCleveland, OH, 44114 To Whom It May Concern: This letter is imploring the powers that be to consider the induction of one of rock’s greatest pioneers as the first Native American band (with Mexican roots), creators of a new genre, Native American Swamp Rock, and heavy influencers of many contemporary and descendant acts . . . Redbone: Lolly Vegas, Pat Vegas, Tony Bellamy, Peter DePoe, Arturo Perez and Butch Rillera. Where would rock ‘n’ roll be today without the Tribal Elders of Rock? Lolly and Pat Vegas made huge inroads as solo artists, both as collaborative studio musicians, but also as artists in their own right. They worked with many famous acts of their time, including Jimi Hendrix and The Rolling Stones. More importantly, during the tumultuous 1960s, their band, Redbone, became part of a cultural movement to express Native American pride (with Mexican influences) and the musical sounds associated with it - and tied it into the traditional American rock sound. So many bands today have been influenced by these rock legends whether they be classic East LA bands like the The Romancers, to the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, to legendary rock bands like Led Zeppelin, all the way to alternative bands like Los Lobos. Please consider the historical record and nominate them for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Sincerely, Redbone Fan

Maroon 5: Drop Out of the Super Bowl Halftime Show

Rihanna has reportedly turned down the opportunity to perform in front of over 100 million people at the 2019 Super Bowl halftime show. Why? She supports Colin Kaepernick, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback who has been exiled from the NFL because of his decision to kneel during the national anthem. Kaepernick risked his career to take a knee for equality, and the NFL punished him for it. Until the league changes their policy and support players’ constitutional right to protest, no artists should agree to work with the NFL. Join me in asking Maroon 5 to drop out of the 2019 Super Bowl halftime show. Rihanna is not the first major artist to turn down the Super Bowl halftime show. Jay-Z turned down a request to perform at the 2017 Super Bowl, and even addressed it in his 2018 song “Apesh*t.” The lyrics say, “I said no to the Super Bowl: you need me, I don't need you. Every night we in the endzone, tell the NFL we in stadiums too," while the music video shows a line of men on one knee. Comedian Amy Schumer has also weighed in, praising Rihanna and encouraging Maroon 5 to follow her lead and step down. Schumer also said that she will refuse to do any commercials that would air during the big game. “Hitting the NFL with the advertisers is the only way to really hurt them," she said. Maroon 5 has made music over the years featuring artists from all genres, including Rihanna, Cardi B and Kendrick Lamar — all of whom have publicly supported Kaepernick in his decision to protest the violent racism sweeping the United States. Maroon 5 must do the same. The band has a chance to stand on the right side of history. If they don’t, they will be remembered for choosing to side with the NFL over its players. The band’s lead singer, Adam Levine, has not shied away from politics in the past. He has been a strong supporter of same sex marriage and LGBT rights. The band even changed the location of a show because the venue supported anti-gay marriage laws. If the band can take a stand for LGBT rights, they should do the same for these players. Colin Kaepernick has sacrificed his NFL career to call out violent racism in America, and players across the country have followed his lead. Rihanna, Jay-Z, Amy Schumer and others have refused to work with the NFL. Maroon 5: Americans look to artists and celebrities as leaders, and you have huge opportunity to use your influence to take a stand. Sign to tell Maroon 5 to drop out of the Super Bowl halftime show in solidarity with Kaepernick and players who #TakeAKnee.
