Video: Jackson Browne and Bonnie Raitt Raise the "No Nukes" Flag Again

December 19, 2007 6:28 PM ET

Jackson Browne and Bonnie Raitt stopped by the Rolling Stone offices this week on an urgent mission: to prevent a sneaky move by some Republican congressmen to insert money for nuclear power plants into an energy bill making its way through Congress.

RS senior editor David Fricke talked to Raitt and Browne about the video they made for the cause: a new version of the Stephen Stills classic "For What It's Worth" with Keb 'Mo, Graham Nash and Ben Harper. To learn more about Browne and Raitt's fight, go to nukefree.org; to get involved, call your congressperson and demand that loan guarantees for new nuclear power plants be stripped from the federal appropriations bill. Watch the full "For What It's Worth" video below.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
