Slow Going for Gore

It seems as though the Live Earth event will be a little greener- not because they’re buying carbon offsets or promoting tour buses that run on biodeisel. Its because two have been shut down (Turkey and Rio) and because people just don’t really care, (Hamburg).

Further, in rock news, a number of famous (and awesome) musicians have been coming out against the Live Earth concert series. The Arctic Monkeys, Snoop Dogg, and Roger Daltrey all say its a stupid idea. They also cite Gore for hypocrisy.

Members of the Arctic Monkeys, one of the best modern rock bands (in my humble opinion), actually realizes that no one wants to hear what they have to say unless its rhymed and set to music:

“Someone asked us to give a quote about what was happening in Sheffield and it’s like ‘who cares what we think about what’s happening’?” added Helders. “There’s more important people who can have an opinion. Why does it make us have an opinion because we’re in a band?”

Roger Daltrey said: "The last thing the planet needs is a rock concert."

Listen to Roger Daltrey- he wrote "Tommy!"

I sure hope Roger bought hairspray without chlorofluorocarbons. They deplete the ozone layer, you know!
