Today in 1970 Mr. John Garcia was born in San Manuel, Arizona. He is a singer and songwriter and was a founding member of the Stoner bands Kyuss, Slo Burn and Unida, which all disbanded over the last years. In November 2010 Garcia formed the band Kyuss Lives! with Brant Bjork, Nick Oliveri and Bruno Fevery. Due to legal pressure he had to change the name of the group and so two years later he baptised the band Vista Chino. The debut album „Peace“ was released in September 2013 through Napalm Records.

Music Diary – 19th August

Welcome to another entry in my personal music diary!

Back in 2004 I bought a very interesting benefit sampler called „Free The West Memphis 3„.

freewestBands and musicians like Tom Waits, Steve Earle, Supersuckers, Joe Strummer, Eddie Vedder, Mark Lanegan or Nashville Pussy contributed for this release.

About the story (from wikipedia):
The West Memphis Three are three men who were tried and convicted as teenagers in 1994 of the 1993 murders of three boys in West Memphis, Arkansas. Damien Echols was sentenced to death, Jessie Misskelley, Jr. was sentenced to life imprisonment plus two 20-year sentences, and Jason Baldwin was sentenced to life imprisonment. During the trial, the prosecution asserted that the children were killed as part of a Satanic ritual. A number of documentaries have been based on the case, and celebrities and musicians have held fund raisers in the belief that they are innocent. (continue reading here)
