Musicians Going Green; Happy Earth Day

posted by on April 22 at 11:09 AM

Jack Johnson and Willie Nelson top the list of musicians who are practicing earth-friendly habits—Jack Johnson built a solar-powered studio and Willie Nelson sells his own biodiesel fuel in six states.

Also on the list, Dave Matthews Band, who apparently didn’t lose too many points when they dumped a bunch of shit on people (and I don’t mean with their music):

4. DAVE MATTHEWS BAND The U.S. rock band, through environmental nonprofit Reverb, has calculated the CO2 emissions from every stop on its upcoming summer tour and purchased the renewable energy credits to make up for the footprint left by each venue, hotel, flight, tour vehicle and even fan travel. Fans can sign up online for a carpool.

But they forgot Piebald. They aren’t a good band at all anymore (I still like If it Weren’t for Venetian Blinds…), but they’ve been using using vegetable oil as tour fuel for years now.

Levi beat me, Cloud Cult are the bees knees.

But the Pearl Jam mention in the article is BS. Their efforts have been extensive: http://www.pearljam.com/activism/carbon.php

I have another one for the list.
There's this great hardcore band from Philly called Kingdom that tours on vegetable oil.
