Carnegie Hall Notables Redemption Song
10/05/2010 - By New York, NY

Carnegie Hall Notables Redemption Song

On Tuesday, October 5, 2010, the Notables, Carnegie Hall’s membership and ticket program for music lovers in their 20s and 30s, presented Redemption Song.

It was an evening that included a panel discussion in Zankel Hall and an after-party at Providence sponsored by FUZE Beverage. The event was sold out and attended by over 500 guests. Redemption Song and all annual Notables season-launch events are generously underwritten by Pia and Jimmy Zankel. Mr. Zankel also serves as the Co-Chair of the Notables program.

Redemption Song was an evening of conversation and performance exploring the relationship between artistry, dependency, recovery, and longevity. The event featured a one-night-only conversation between influential entertainers in music discussing struggles with drugs or alcohol and benefited music education in the New York metropolitan area by supporting the many music education programs made possible by Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute.

Musician, actor, and activist against substance abuse Henry Rollins hosted an open discussion interspersed with readings and performance, with panelists reflecting upon their personal journeys and the impact that obstacles have had on their music. Blues, folk, jazz musician, and singer-songwriter, Rickie Lee Jones performed selections from her acclaimed body of work, musician and drummer Steven Adler (Guns N’ Roses, Adler’s Appetite) read from his book "My Appetite for Destruction: Sex, and Drugs, and Guns N’ Roses", musician Darryl “DMC” McDaniels (Run-DMC) recounted stories from his book "King of Rock: Respect, Responsibility, and My Life with Run-DMC"; and guitarist, songwriter, and author Ace Frehley (KISS) performed “A Little Below The Angels” and “New York Groove.”

Immediately following the discussion and performance, there was an exclusive after-party for attendees at Providence, formerly a world-famous recording studio where The Rolling Stones, The Ramones, and Jimi Hendrix created iconic records. Steven Adler signed copies of "My Appetite for Destruction: Sex, and Drugs, and Guns N’ Roses" at the after-party.
