STEVEN ADLER, HENRY ROLLINS Confirmed For New York City's 'Redemption Song'

On October 5, 2010 at 7:30 p.m. in Zankel Hall, the Carnegie Hall Notables program — a membership and ticket program for music enthusiasts in their 20s and 30s — presents Redemption Song, an evening of conversation and song exploring the relationship between artistry, dependency, recovery, and longevity. This event features a one-night-only conversation between influential entertainers in music discussing struggles with drugs or alcohol. The evening will benefit music education in the New York metropolitan area by supporting the many music education programs made possible by Carnegie Hall's Weill Music Institute.

Musician, actor, and activist against substance abuse Henry Rollins will host an open discussion interspersed with readings and performance, inviting the audience to listen to musicians as they reflect upon their personal journeys and the impact that obstacles have had on their music. Blues, folk, jazz musician, and singer-songwriter, Rickie Lee Jones will perform selections from her acclaimed body of work, musician and drummer Steven Adler (GUNS N' ROSES, ADLER'S APPETITE) will read from his book "My Appetite for Destruction: Sex, and Drugs, and Guns N' Roses", and musician Darryl "DMC" McDaniels (RUN-DMC) will also give a reading from his book "King of Rock: Respect, Responsibility, and My Life with Run-DMC".

Immediately following the discussion and performance, attendees are invited to attend an exclusive afterparty sponsored by FUZE Beverage at Providence, formerly a world-famous recording studio where THE ROLLING STONES, THE RAMONES, and JIMI HENDRIX created iconic records. Steven Adler will sign copies of "My Appetite for Destruction: Sex, and Drugs, and Guns N' Roses" at the afterparty where guests will receive a complimentary copy.

Redemption Song and all annual Notables season-launch events are generously underwritten by Pia and Jimmy Zankel, who also serves as the co-chair of the Notables program.

The October 5 panel discussion and afterparty are free for Carnegie Hall Notables members at the Supporter level and higher. Admission is $40 for Notables members at the Prelude level and $60 for the general public.
