No Nukes Concert Is Back For Japan Relief [VIDEO]
Let’s rewind it back to 1979…Three Mile Island Nuclear Reactor…..Things were not going well
A group of musicians got together and called themselves MUSE, an activist group founded in 1979 by Jackson Browne, Graham Nash, Bonnie Raitt, and John Hall. The group advocated against the use of nuclear energy, forming shortly after the Three Mile Island nuclear accident in March 1979. MUSE organized a series of five No Nukes concerts held at Madison Square Garden in New York in September 1979. On September 23, 1979, almost 200,000 people attended a large rally staged by MUSE on the then-empty north end of the Battery Park City landfill in New York.
Well that group is now back for another series of concerts at the Shoreline Ampitheater in California on August 7th. The concert will include a bunch of the original artists such as CROSBY, STILLS & NASH; JACKSON BROWNE; BONNIE RAITT, the DOOBIE BROTHERS and many others. Here is a snippet of the original concert from 1979
