4/25/2009 Ricardo Montalbán Theater, Los Angeles, CA

From Blabbermouth 04/27/2009

"VELVET REVOLVER/ex-GUNS N' ROSES drummer Matt Sorum and JANE'S ADDICTION frontman Perry Farrell are among the musicians who performed at the Los Angeles premiere of "The Heart Is A Drum Machine", the eagerly awaited documentary film that explores the complex and critical relationship between humanity and music. The event was held this past Saturday, April 25 at Nike's Ricardo Montalbán Theater in the heart of Hollywood. Sponsored by L.A. Weekly and Nike, proceeds will benefit the Charles Mingus Youth Arts Center in Watts, a facility of the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs.

Watch fan-filmed video footage from the event below.

Directed by Christopher Pomerenke and produced by Ryan Page, Joe Mundo, and Hans Fjellestad, "The Heart Is A Drum Machine" explores music's role in shaping human history, the profound connection people have had to music throughout human history, how it has shaped our experiences, and its involvement in our daily lives. Tackling the topic is a who's who of musicians, including George Clinton, TOOL's Maynard James Keenan, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS' John Frusciante, and JIMMY EAT WORLDS's Jim Adkins. Music historians and writers such as MTV's Kurt Loder and KCRW's Nic Harcourt were also interviewed, in addition to Carl Sagan's widow and collaborator Ann Druyan, who discusses the Voyager Golden Record. THE FLAMING LIPS' Steven Drozd created an original score for the film and covered ELTON JOHN's "Rocket Man" with vocals by Maynard James Keenan."

I don't think Dave's in that video. I think the guy that looks a little like Dave over there is actually an actor from the TV show "Lost" - Naveen Andrews/Sayid. That, according to the original posted video.

Canton home girl Macy Gray did a soulful version of "Creep". She's one from the "pop jondra" that seems to have never gotten the recognition deserved. I can feel the sincerity in her voice over and over. Not being a fan that says a lot. She kept her head above water for some reason other than appearance and that's refreshing to see (hear).

Creep - M. Gray version:

Can't wait to hear a studio version of Maynards "Rocket Man".
The conversation the Taper is having over powers the performance but watchable none the less.

Rocket Man - MJK version (Pricless comment right around 2:49):

Yeah it's not Dave.
It's Naveen Andrews as Mudget said.

I'll be checking out Naveen Andrews/Sayid on Lost tonight. ;)
