Re: “Healing Sounds

I understand Robert Current's problem with getting publicity for his compilation record release in response to the tragedy on January 8th, 2011. In 2009 four teenagers were killed by a drunk driver in Santa Fe, New Mexico. A fifteen year old girl who was supposed to be in the car that got hit ended up writing a beautiful song about the experience called "Wrong Way" which had the potential of being a hit. I helped her record the song and made a video for it. Then I found out that the musicians of Santa Fe had their own plans for healing CD in response to the tragedy. I contacted them and the local radio station that was helping to sponsor them. They ignored all my requests. The girl and I were not in the "in" crowd of the musician's and radio community so this very special song, written and performed by a girl who was a friend of the deceased and almost died herself, and had the potential of being used for healing was all but ignored.

Why? Because people who help often have a hidden agenda. They want to look good in the public eye and are interested in being number one as much as helping others. We all do it to some extant and it sounds like the "Tucson Get Together" and the "Musicians Against Violence" groups have a little bit of it too (though it's not malicious in any way). I noticed that neither website for each group mentioned the other group. One group has more experienced professionals and the other is more home grown. One group wins and one loses. It would be better for all if both groups could coordinate with each other and make this an even deeper community healing. Maybe sell each other's music on both of their websites and perform in concert together. I don't want to point fingers because both groups sound like they are very caring and wonderful, I'm just suggesting that being open to others can allow for more healing to take place.

If you are interested in raising awareness for the dangers of drunk driving look up Leah Tatum's music video "Wrong Way" at
http://youtu.be/-acU0hQc2OY

You can also find a number of other films on death and healing on my website www.erossalvatore.com You can see that the community of Santa Fe missed something beautiful when they left out Leah's song.

Thanks to both groups of musicians for their efforts and everyone who has ever participated in any aspect of community healing. It's only with everyone becoming involved that everyone can heal.

Sincerely,


Eros Salvatore

Re: “Downing

Dear Renne,

I hated Lucile Ball as well and that fact would be unremarkable if not for the fact that I meet Lucile Ball’s great-granddaughter Desiree Anzalone and recorded a music video for her. It shows Lucy in a different light and, excusing the poor sound quality, you can see one of her many beautiful descendents who are wonderful musicians and wonderful people. It’s amazing how our views of famous people can change once we meet them (or their descendents).

Check it out at http://www.erossalvatore.com/Completed_Fil…

It’s the second video down, called “ Livin’ and Dyin’ “.

Sincerely,
Eros Salvatore

Re: “Mailbag

If you decide to live near an air force place don't be surprised that there will be loud planes flying over head. You people have no real reason to complain.
