Stephen Stills (from Crosby, Stills & Nash), 59 years old, became again papa this past week in Beverly Hills, California. The mother is Kristen, 38 years old. The new baby is a boy, born monday before 4 p.m. in Los Angeles: Oliver Ragland Stills, weighing 8 pounds 2 ounces. Oliver Ragland, was named in honor of Stills' frequent bandmate Neil Young (news), born Neil Percival Kenneth Ragland Young.

Stephen Stills has already several children. The best known are Chris Stills and Jennifer Stills. Chris Stills's mother is french singer-songwriter-pianist Veronique Sanson. Jennifer Stills is an artist too. She is a singer-songwriter. See her website there.

Stephen Stills' consummate, innovative musicianship has established him as an eminent solo performer and as the cornerstone of the supergroup Crosby, Stills & Nash.

For four decades, Stephen Stills' music has spanned generations and cultural borders, entertaining millions of listeners throughout the world. His unique guitar style and phrasing has garnered Stills a well deserved spot among the best players in the world.

Born in Dallas, Texas, Stephen Stills was reared in Illinois, Louisiana, Florida and Central America.

John Kerry supported by Jackson Browne


John Kerry supported by Jackson Browne. Jackson Browne has put the following message on his website:

"Don't forget to VOTE -Join or Host a Phone Party on Election Day
Dear MoveOn member,

Forget the laundry. Let the dirty dishes pile up in the sink. Break out the TV dinners and tell the kids to do their own homework. On Election Day, we'll need every last person to pitch in.

If you're not able to travel to a swing state, please take some time to help call voters there and remind them to go to the polls. It's worth missing a few hours of work or school to help swing the most important election of our lifetimes. Together, we'll call half a million swing state friendly John Kerry supporters who are unlikely to vote -- unless they hear from us. In this incredibly tight election, they could make all the difference.

Can you join us, by hosting or attending a phone party on November 2nd?

MoveOn volunteers have worked hard over the past months to find these battleground-state occasional voters. On Tuesday, we've got to make sure they vote! All you need to host a party is a computer and a printer. All you need to attend is a cell phone. Either way, we'll guide you through it step by step. And it's an efficient use of your time: you'll do more to beat George W. Bush on this single day than any other. Late afternoon and evening are the most crucial hours. You could also host a lunch hour phone bank.

The party you host could just consist of you and your friends, or you can open it up to the whole MoveOn community. Every time MoveOn members have gotten together -- from bakesales to the opening night of Fahrenheit 9/11 -- we've had fun. On Election Day, we have one last chance to come together, meet each other, and play a key part in taking our country back.

And think about taking the day off from work or school. Play hooky for John Kerry. What are you going to remember in 10 years? The memo you rewrote? The lecture you slept through? Or the way it felt watching the returns come in on Tuesday night, knowing that our national nightmare is coming to a close and you helped put us over the top?

Sign up to host a phone party or find one in your area now, at:

--Adam, Eli, Hannah, James, Laura, and the whole MoveOn PAC Team

Keb' Mo': Peace... Back By Popular Demand


Keb' Mo' "Peace... Back By Popular Demand" new album is out. "My Intention for this record is to be meaningful and relevant to what I am feeling in our own time," says Keb' Mo'. "It started out as a collection of protest songs, but it evolved into an album about peace and freedom."

The Grammy-winning singer, songwriter and guitarist is talking about his new album "Peace...Back by Popular Demand" released September 21, 2004 on OKeh/Epic Records. His seven previous albums have made Keb' Mo' one of the most popular writer/performers on the contemporary blues scene. But with this new collection, the artist formerly known as Kevin Moore takes a new creative turn: He interprets nine classic songs of social conscience from the Sixties and Seventies, and adds one stirring new composition of his own.

As one who came of age in the American Sixties, Keb' Mo' lived through the tumultuous and tragic events of that period. His life and consciousness were shaped by the British Invasion and the soul music explosion; by the assassinations of John and Robert Kennedy, of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr.; by the military draft and the peace movement.

In interpreting some of the popular songs that stirred the nation and the world in the years 1964-1976, "Peace... Back by Popular Demand" speaks to the challenges and opportunities we face today. It is a conceptually unified work designed to raise awareness among listeners of all backgrounds.

"I believe that people on both the Left and the Right have more in common than we have differences," says Keb' Mo'. "We have way more reasons to come together than we have to split apart&I think people the world over want pretty much the same things."

In playing order, here are the songs of "Peace...Back by Popular Demand" and the original artists:
1. "For What It's Worth" (Buffalo Springfield)
2. "Wake Up Everybody" (Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes with Teddy Pendergrass)
3. "People Got to Be Free" (The Rascals)
4. "Talk" (new song by Keb' Mo')
5. "What's Happening, Brother" (Marvin Gaye)
6. "The Times They Are A-Changing" (Bob Dylan)
7. "Get Together" (The Youngbloods)
8. "Someday We'll All Be Free" (Donny Hathaway)
9. "(What's So Funny About) Peace, Love, and Understanding" (Elvis Costello & the Attractions)
10. "Imagine" (John Lennon)

All tracks are produced by Keb' Mo' and were recorded in just one month in Los Angeles. The artist plays electric and acoustic guitars, dobro, and mandolin; keyboards player Jeff Paris and bassist Reggie McBride are both mainstays of the Keb' Mo' touring band. Also on board are such veteran session players as Paulinho Da Costa (percussion), Paul Jackson Jr. (electric guitar), Harvey Mason (drums), and Greg Phillinganes (organ).

Here is an album intended to inspire its listeners to reconnect with their common humanity-and to take action from that place. In a world wracked by tension and violence, "Peace...Back by Popular Demand" offers a positive message of hope to all.
"If my music can cast even a shadow of peace and understanding on humanity," says Keb' Mo', "well...that will be pretty cool!".
