Kim Monroe’s Music Minute September 8th

Green Day did their part in helping the victims of Hurricane Harvey from backstage of one of their shows in Florida.  The band did a 30-minute set broadcast on Facebook live to help raise money for Americares.  The band also committed $100-thousand toward relief efforts out of their own pocket.

Rock icons Black Sabbath said goodbye to their fans during an extensive tour that wrapped up earlier this year.  A concert movie will be released in limited engagement on September 28th and in advance they have released the video of “Children Of The Grave” from their final show in their hometown of Birmingham.

On the heels of the suicides of Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington, many artists have been speaking out on their own battles with depression.  Most recently, Guns N Roses bassist Duff McKagan shared his experience with the disease saying that he is a pretty positive and strong guy, but when it hit, he was neither.

Born in Northeast Ohio, traveled to Charlotte, NC, Seattle, Cleveland and finally back to Seattle. This is, by far, my favorite city in the US, not to mention the best people! I am a happy mother of two great kids and lots of animals! In my rare downtime, I enjoy reading and watching true crime shows, plus American Horror Story every season!
