Sponsored by the White House, Warner Brothers and Points of Light; the concerts raised over 30 tons of food for needy families, enough to fill 7 Boeing 747's

Radio spots and ads asked the fans to bring a can of food to the concert. By the time the band hit the stage, trucks were already rolling out to local food banks and shelters delivering the food.
Blast from the past....

                       All of the Above



 

When Keith was a college student getting ready to graduate, he wrote a letter to world-renowned drummer Ric Lee from the band "Ten Years After" of Woodstock fame, asking him for a job as a Drum Tech and/or Roadie. Keith wanted to get on-the-job lessons on how to get into the music business. Soon thereafter Keith received a handwritten letter from Ric, declining to give him a job as they already had someone in those positions but offering valuable advice.

Many years later Keith is shown here meeting Ric, telling him of his many accomplishments in the music business. Ric is reading his original letter which Keith saved in a trophy case and read many times over the years. The letter explains in detail what to study, how to practice, including expert advice on how to get into the music business and be successful.
