Laugh if you will, I will readily admit to my nerdiness but if I weren't home watching PBS I would miss amazing stories like this one, Playing for Change: Peace Through Music. It is no secret what Freud would say about my fondness for Bill Moyers. Electra complex, I know, but that will be another post.
Please check out this story: Playing for Change: Peace Through Music. Musicians were followed around the globe over the course of ten years. All musicians recorded versions of 'Stand By Me'. In addition to the the amazing musical recording, another amazing consequence of the project was the inception of music schools around the world.
