Blues Town: Remembering Russell City

Etta James, Ray Charles and John Lee Hooker all played in Russell City, a once thriving blues town located in Hayward. The town was home to Black and Latino residents who couldn't find a residence elsewhere due to redlining and other racist housing policies. The city of Hayward used eminent domain to take the land and by 1966, the town had been annexed and replaced by an industrial park that is still there. In 2021 the Hayward city council voted unanimously to issue a formal apology to the residents who were pushed out.  This episode first aired on Bay Curious Aug. 11, 2022.

Les scandales et procès qui ont émergé en 2022

2022 a encore été une année tendue, marqué par de nombreux scandales et procès, je vous propose aujourd'hui d'en résumer certains. Marilyn Manson, d'abord, continue de faire l'objet de multiples accusations et de poursuites pour abus psychologiques et sexuels. L'artiste s'est d'ailleurs dit menacé de mort et déplore que sa carrière soit au point mort depuis l'affaire. Même type de souci pour Bob Dylan qui s'est vu accusé à son tour d'agression sexuelle par une femme situant les faits 60 ans plus tôt, ce qui est apparu impossible, Dylan étant en tournée à l'époque présumée des faits. La plainte a donc été abandonnée, malgré une tentative ultérieure de ses avocats d'obtenir des dommages et intérêts. Dylan a par contre fait amende honorable suite à l'affaire des fausses signatures. En effet, alors qu'il vendait son dernier livre dédicacé pour 600 dollars, certains fans ont réalisé que la signature n'était pas manuscrite. Il a évoqué des problèmes de vertiges pour se dédouaner. Le hashtag #metoo a aussi été évoqué par cinq jeunes personnes à l'encontre de Win Butler d'Arcade Fire. Le musicien est accusé de comportement déplacé et d'avoir abusé de son influence sur ces plaignants. L'extrait "Sad Motherfuckin Parade" de Jeff Beck et Johnny Depp, sur l'album 18, a été accusé de plagiat au niveau des paroles. On les soupçonne d'avoir volé le poème " Hobo " signé par Bruce Jackson en 1974, ce qu'ils ont démenti. On en saura plus après le procès en cours. Par contre, après trois ans d'attente, Ed Sheeran avec enfin fixé à propos de son titre " Shape of You ". La justice a décidé qu'il n'avait pas plagié " How Why " de Sami Chokri et Ross O'Donogue. Quand on parle de scandale, on sait que Neil Young et Roger Waters sont dans les premiers à lever le poing. Ce fût chose faite pour Neil Young face à Spotify. Un réseau de streaming qu'il a quitté suite à la diffusion du podcast de Joe Rogan. L'artiste accusait la plateforme de désinformation par rapport au covid 19 et à la vaccination. Il sera suivi par Joni Mitchell, David Crosby, Stephen Stills, Graham Nash et bien d'autres. Roger Waters, de son côté, a qualifié le président américain Joe Biden de "criminel de guerre" avant de tenir d'autres propos engagés sur l'invasion en Ukraine. Il a écrit à la fois à Vladimir Poutine et à l'épouse de Volodimir Zelenski, lui demandant de faire pression sur son mari pour qu'il " mette fin au massacre ". Plusieurs concerts de Roger Waters ont été annulés dans la foulée et il est à présent persona non grata dans divers pays dont la Pologne. Au même moment, Pink Floyd sortait pourtant " Hey Hey, rise up ", un single en soutien aux Ukrainiens. Il s'agissait du premier titre original enregistré depuis The Division Bell en 1994 et la première sortie depuis The Endless River en 2014. L'affaire Roger Waters a mis en suspend la vente du catalogue de Pink Floyd, qui se négociait alors à plus de 470 millions de dollars. Peter Frampton, par contre, a conclu un accord et rejoint la longue liste d'artistes qui ont vendu leur catalogue, avec cette année, Neil Diamond, Leonard Cohen, Elvis Presley, Sting, John Lee Hooker, Genesis, et Phil Collins, mais aussi David Bowie. Dans l'épisode de demain, nous saluerons la mémoire de ceux qui nous ont quittés cette année.
