The Wall Street Journal has an article behind its subscription wall called "Houses of Worship - Lambs With Chops" (tip from Joe Pop and Anton). Here is the last paragraph: As Mr. Joseph notes, Emmylou Harris, Bono, Al Green, Bob Dylan and even Alice Cooper -- once known for his on-stage guillotine -- have a positive spiritual influence. Mr. Cooper, as it happens, was a drinking partner of Mr. Lennon's, and his passionate warnings about the existence of the devil indicate that, sooner or later, many a rocky road leads to the 700 Club, or environs. For Messrs. Landis and Joseph, sooner is the goal.

Lost, Stolen, or Strayed:
On Tues, Aug. 8, a one-of-a kind 5 string banjo in a green cloth case was removed from the back of folksinger Pete Seeger's vehicle either as he stopped briefly in Poughkeepsie, NY or in the small town of Rosendale where he was attending a political rally. This banjo was built by Seeger as a prototype which was later produced and sold by the Vega company. It has the following words written around the head of the instrument: "This Machine Surrounds Hatred and Forces it to Surrender". Any information leading to the return of this banjo would be deeply appreciated, to say the least! A cash reward is also being offered. Please check your local pawnshops, check e-bay, and in general keep your ears to the ground for any clues. Owner and fans heartsick! Thanks in advance for your help. : ( Sarah [Underhill] (from

A&E Channel, August 13: Biography. Bob Dylan.

Follows Dylan's journey from folk troubadour to rock'n'roll trailblazer, and looks at his struggles to raise a family, his surprising conversion to Christianity, and the songs that made him a cultural icon by the age of 25.

"Festival" with Dylan's Newport appearances showing on July 12th in L.A. (mods and rockers)
Last year's "Mods & Rockers" film festival sponsored by the American Cinematheque proved a feast for fans of the swingin' '60s. This year, for a second edition slated to run at the Egyptian Theatre from June 30 through July 12, co-organizer Martin Lewis has unearthed another assortment of music-oriented riches and embarrassments. One of the former is "Festival," a 1967 Oscar-nominated film of the early '60s Newport Folk Festivals, including the moment when Bob Dylan "went electric" to the horror of folk purists. Lewis says the film hasn't been screened in L.A. in about 30 years and has never been on TV or video. It will be shown closing day along with "Message to Love," a documentary on the 1970 Isle of Wight festival. (Quote from LA Times)
