No Nukes

I haven’t listened to a record for a while and I feel like I’ve strayed from the original plan I had. However, today I will be listening to an album. In fact, this album is a collaboration between some of the most influential musicians of the 70’s.

This album, No Nukes: The Muse Concerts For a Non-Nuclear Future, was released as a triple live album in 1979 and contains music from the No Nukes Festival that happened in Madison Square Garden. The event was organized by an organization called MUSE (Musicians United for Safe Energy), which was founded by Jackson Browne, Graham Nash, Bonnie Raitt, and John Hall. The album itself includes music from groups and solo artists such as James Taylor, The Doobie Brothers, Jackson Browne, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, and Crosby, Stills, & Nash.

Just last year on August 7th, MUSE had another concert to reunite many of the musicians from the 1979 No Nukes show including all of the founders of MUSE. Held in Mountain View, CA, at the Shoreline Amphitheater, this show also included artists such as Jason Mraz and Tom Morollo from Rage Against the Machine.

One reasons I love this album is because I like how famous musicians perform together. It’s amazing enough to see one of your favorite artists in concert, but to be able to see many of your favorites at one show is out of this world.

What are some of your favorite artists? Have you ever seen any of these artists play together? If you could see any collaboration of musicians, who would it be? Comment below!
