Jack Johnson Named Top 'Green 10' Artist by Billboard

May 20, 2008

Responding to the increasing focus that many musicians put on environmental issues, Billboard has assembled a 'Green 10' of artists taking action. The list includes Australian singer/songwriter Missy Higgins at #9, UK singer/songwriter KT Tunstall at #5, top-40 jamband Dave Matthews Band at #4, and renegade Willie Nelson at #2. The artist atop the list is Hawaiian surfer/singer/songwriter Jack Johnson. His new LA studio was built using denim for insulation and solar panels for power. His tour buses run on bio-diesel fuel, tour catering uses organic and locally grown food and venues along the way are being asked to recycle. On a side note, we hope to have a Folk Alley booth at the June 17 concert at Blossom Music Center in Cuyahoga Falls. I'll bring a recycling bin, just in case.

A wife decides to take her husband to a strip club for his birthday. They arrive at the club and the doorman says, "Hey, John! How ya doin'?" His wife is puzzled and asks if he's been to this club before. "Oh, no," says John. "He's on my bowling team."
