Friday, April 18th, 2014

Last night, Raelyn Nelson was one of Waylon Payne’s guests at the Nashville Film Festival’s premiere of the new movie he is in: “The Identical.”

identical

Identical twin brothers (both played by Blake Rayne) are separated at birth during the Great Depression. Their parents (Brian Geraghty, Amanda Crew) just cannot afford to give them both a life beyond poverty, so one is adopted by loving family. Despite their very different upbringings, the boys’ shared passion for music causes their lives to unknowingly intersect as they experience a powerful and mysterious connection often felt by twins.

One of the boys becomes the most famous rock ‘n’ roll legend in the world, Drexel Hemsley, while Ryan Wade struggles to find balance between his love for music and trying to please his evangelist father (Ray Liotta) and his devoted mother (Ashley Judd) who have very different plans for his life in the ministry.

Ryan is encouraged by his wife Jenny (Erin Cottrell) and lifelong friends Dino and Avi (Seth Green, Joe Pantoliano) to follow his musical dreams. And oh, can he sing, just like his world famous brother!

A timeless tale of love, hope, and redemption. A captivating journey about the restoration and the reconciliation of a family broken apart by culture, creed and tradition.

After hatching characters that fueled movies such as Wayne’s World and Austin Powers, Mike Myers quietly spent the past two years readying his feature directorial debut on a docu about Shep Gordon, a music manager as colorful as any previous Myers creation. Few knew this was how Myers was spending his time until Toronto unveiled a lineup that included Supermensch:  The legend of Shep Gordon.   Myers chronicles the spiritual and career journey of Gordon, whose trajectory is parts Forrest Gump and Being There, in terms of the number of chance encounters with icons that helped make him a giant in his field. It started when he arrived in a hotel room in California after quitting a job on the first day. Hearing a woman in distress outside, he rushed to her aid and promptly got face-punched by Janis Joplin after breaking up her consensual sexual encounter. She felt bad the next day, and she and Jimi Hendrix helped Gordon get into the music biz, where he broke Alice Cooper, Teddy Pendergrass and others. Later, his desire to help his chef friends birthed the zillion-dollar celebrity chef industry, and Gordon also became part of the Dalai Lama’s inner circle.

Willie Nelson, “Peace” DVD

Wednesday, February 5th, 2014

www.WillieNelson.com

“Jimmy’s Road” is the first of three videos on the Willie Nelson Peace DVD, a rare collector’s item.

The song Jimmy’s Road,” produced in 1968 and issued as a B-side in 1969, found new life when released in 1991 on Who’ll Buy My Memories? (The I.R.S. Tapes)” and on the 1993 Willie Nelson: A Classic and Unreleased Collection.”

This video version was first released in 2003 on this rare Willie Nelson Peace DVD. Also on this DVD it is followed by “Whatever Happened to Peace on Earth? by Willie Nelson and “The War Prayer” by Mark Twain featuring Willie Nelson with family and friends.

What a sad commentary on the United States of America that since achieving global military dominance at the end of WWII there has been repeated times when Jimmy’s Road” has again become appropriate.

Every generation learns in hindsight the futility of violence and the truth of who violence serves. When will we have a generation that perceives that the only worthwhile path includes peace?

This rare DVD is available for sale at Willie Nelson’s website (along with a lot more cool stuff, clothing, music, calendars, mugs, etc., etc.)
