Disney Channel Michael Jackson Tribute

In June 25, 2009, we lost one of the greatest entertainers of all time, Michael Joseph Jackson. Years later, there had been tributes to him in concerts, charities and everywhere. Unfortunately, there hasn't been a tribute album made for us to listen. So, I've figured that the best way to honor a legend is to highlight and recreate their work; The music of the King of Pop should definitely be performed by the most talented young stars of today and the powerful and positive messages in his music should exist forever! Today, the brightest young entertainers are on current Disney Channel shows and movies (Austin & Ally, Descendants, Girl Meets World, K.C. Undercover, Lab Rats, Raven's Home, etc.). The talent and popularity of these young stars will enhance Michael's legacy and reinforce his positive messages for the youth of today. Performances by these young stars would be Bad and live Off the Wall! The youth today would feel even more Invincible when hearing this recreated work because they're Dangerous showing their extraordinary musical talents. It would be a Thriller just hearing them sing in honor of Michael and dedicate this album to his fans and his children (Paris, Prince, & Blanket) making HIStory throughout the world. I already know who Michael Jackson was since then and he did inspire everyone to make the world a better place and do the right thing in life for both kids & adults on this Earth. Everytime I think about him listening to his music, I start wondering what he'd do if all of these events (police brutality, wars, terrorism, cancer, etc.) keep happening in the world. I intend to help stop this and we all must come together. This is a vision any moonwalker would like to see in future outcomes, and I'm gonna help make it come true. Michael is gone, but his spirit lives and so does his music to be listened and recreated again by the stars of Disney Channel shows. It will be an unstoppable one to listen for fans like me and yourselves.Your signatures on this petition will ensure that the great music of the King of Pop will last forever. Please join me in support and sign this petition to convince Disney, The MJ Estate & Sony Music to help pay tribute to our musical hero with its stars singing his hits one by one in an album. Let's start making a change together and moonwalk our way to #DisneyChannelSingsMJ #ComeTogether4MJ #MakeThatChange #MJFam

#TheWeirdAlChallenge for Charities

I believe it is one of the highest musical honors to have Weird Al Yankovic parody an artist’s song. What if we could get those same artists to perform or lip-sync his parody of their song? They could perform it live, release it on the web, set up an event, etc... However, to make a REAL change, we ask them to promise to do it once donation total they establish beforehand is met and donated to the charity of their choosing. Almost four years ago, I was in-between jobs and the creative juices were flowing. Weird Al Yankovic, a favorite musician of mine since childhood, had released ‘Mandatory Fun’. It was his first number #1 on the Billboard charts, and ultimately won him his 4th Grammy. An amazing feat for a album in the comedy genre. Through some happen-chance discussions overheard, a ‘few’ drinks, and my semi-humorous wit, I started a campaign/petition to have Al to perform at the half-time of Super Bowl XLIX on (LINK). While it never came to fruition, I was blown away by the support and recognition it received. Over 125K voiced their backing, as did several media outlets and fellow entertainers. Simply put, it was amazing. My girlfriend (now wife) was initially critical of my venture, stating that I was only using the platform for personal purposes, rather than using the platform to make a “real change” as others have done. While I was initially still happy with the idea and attention it received, her view stuck with me after all the years. Coincidentally, I now find myself again in-between jobs, and Weird Al just released a new fantastic single, ‘The Hamilton Polka’. I was in the midst of driving from Colorado back to Seattle, and after listening to that single, I started streaming some of his classic songs. Then the idea hits me… Let's ask the artists, entertainers, and fans to perform his parodies for charitable donations. I call this: #TheWeirdAlChallenge Thus, I have tweeted several of the artists he has parodied, and asked the following question: How many likes/retweets and donations (please state the amount and charity of your choice) would it take for you to perform _______, Weird Al’s parody of your song _____ ?  Below are links to every one of the tweets for you, the fans, to do help make this change a reality. And if I have missed anyone, or there are other artists, entertainers, or fans who would like to participate, regardless of the parody (ie. The cast of Silicon Valley singing “It’s All About the Pentiums”, Chris Pratt rocking “Jurassic Park", or Jack Black belting out “Another One Rides the Bus”), please feel free to message them, me  and/or leave a comment. Let’s make a real change by donating and celebrate Weird Al!! As a famous John Mayer parody might go...    So we keep donating (donating)     Donating for Weird Al and Change    We keep donating (donating)     Donating for Weird Al and Change… *Sorry, I will leave the parodies to Al….

Geezer Butler to receive a Star at Broad Street 'Walk Of Stars' Birmingham

Official Facebook Page : Petition : Geezer Butler to receive a star at Birmingham's Broad street 'Walk Of Stars'.  Born in Aston, Birmingham England on 17 July 1949, Terence Michael Joseph "Geezer" Butler is best known as a founding member , bass player , song writer and main lyricist of heavy metal pioneers band ‘Black Sabbath’ .Defining the main foundations of the genre with ground breaking classic releases such as Black Sabbath (1970), Paranoid (1970), Master of Reality (1971), Vol.4 (1972) and Sabbath Bloody Sabbath (1973) , Black Sabbath inspired millions of fans and musicians around the globe paving the path for many artists and bands that came after them - Metallica , Iron maiden , Judas Priest , Guns ‘n’ Roses , Van Halen , Sound garden , Alice In Chains ,Nirvana , Opeth , Pantera - along with countless others cite Black Sabbath as one of their major musical influences. With over 70 million record sales worldwide , Black Sabbath were responsible in spreading the sound and spirit of industrial Birmingham all around the globe , They were ranked by MTV as the "Greatest Metal Band" of all time.Rolling Stone magazine ranked them number 85 in their "100 Greatest Artists of All Time" recalling Paranoid "the birthplace of heavy metal", also VH1's placed them second "100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock" list.Black Sabbath also won numerous Grammy awards and were inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2005 and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006. Regarded as one of the most influential bass players of all time and often cited as the ‘Godfather’ of hard rock /heavy metal bass players ,Geezer Butler’s thunderous aggressive finger style technique along with his gargantuan tone was a major key aspect in shaping Black Sabbath’s musical identity , his unorthodox approach to the instrument bringing new elements such as the wah-wah pedal and down tuning have inspired thousands of musicians and bass players for over four decades. "All true metal bassists look up to Geezer as a pioneer and Godfather of our chosen instrument. The best, ever" - Jason Newsted (Ex Metallica Bass Player) "He’s a legend. He’s everything. Geezer is so much of an influence on me.” - Rex Brown (Pantera/Kill Devil Hill) "He’s a founding father of a whole genre of music and a man who really set the bar early on to be such an integral part of the sound and song structure of Sabbath" - Billy Sheenan (Mr.Big / Winery Dogs) Other bassists such as Cliff Burton, Steve Harris , Robert Trujillo , David Ellefson , Les Claypool,Steve DiGiorgio, Alex Webster, John Myung,Johnny Lee Middleton,Greg Smith mentioned Geezer as a major significant influence on their style. Apart of suggesting the band’s name ‘Black Sabbath’ back in 1969 , Butler wrote almost all of the band's lyrics during the early Ozzy era , growing up in an working-class family in the rough neighbors of Aston , Birmingham , Butler’s lyrics and themes on such classics as ‘War Pigs’ ,‘Iron Man’ , ‘After Forever’, ‘Into The Void’ , ‘A National Acrobat’ , ‘Spiral Architect’ , ‘Hole In the Sky’ among many others were heavily based on the dark side of the human nature , religion, science-fiction, macabre fantasies and horror. It was Geezer’s lyrics and themes that gave Tony Iommi’s crushing evil heavy riffs a sense of direction and purpose laying the main foundations to what became later known as the Metal genre. With 'Black Sabbath' embarking their final world tour 'The End' and with the band announcing that their final shows will be rightfully where it all started , at the birth place of heavy metal at their hometown in Birmingham, England. Its seems more than fitting to celebrate the legacy of one of Birmingham's  proudest sons and legends by honoring him with a tribute star at the 'Walk Of Stars' on Broad street.
