LEONARDO DiCAPRIO DONATES $1 MILLION _ Leo DiCaprio has cut a check for $1 million for Harvey relief efforts.

Some Music News;
Neil Young‘s lost 1976 album “Hitchhiker” is officially out next week but NPR is streaming the whole thing right now. Neil’s new release is a collection of songs recorded live back in 1976 in Malibu. Some of the songs have been featured on his albums “Comes a Time” and “Rust Never Sleeps.”
Dave Grohl says the Foo Fighters album “Concrete and Gold” was influenced by Donald Trump and the rise of conservatism. He said “It really sparked a lot of my early, alienated, freakish punk rock feelings from when I was a teenager,” “I was one of those little freaks in his blue bedroom in the middle of a really conservative part of Virginia feeling like I was just an alien. I started feeling that way again.” And as a father Grohl says. “I’m looking at a candidate that has blatant disregard for the future environmentally, when it comes to women’s rights, diplomatically,” “I have three daughters that are going to survive me for decades – how are they going to get on unless there’s some positive and progressive change?” So now how do you feel Donald?! Somehow I don’t think he cares.
