We are all connected in today's world what with smart phones, tablets and well, technology in general! Communicating over technology so much also makes us more disconnected from everyone else!
It's time to unite and remember why we love music and choose to share it with each other. Ziggy Marley, son of the late, legendary Bob Marley said, 'Record stores keep the human contact alive!' We would never argue with philosophy like that!
In 2011, lead singer of Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne was ambassador for the day. In 2012, for the 5th annual Record Store Day, it was the fantastic Iggy Pop. 2013 saw Jack White, of White Stripes fame, as the ambassador. The ambassador for 2014 was Hip Hop artist Chuck D. This year sees Dave Grohl, lead singer/guitarist of The Foo Fighters as ambassador.
In the UK over 200 independent record stores will be taking part - and some great artists will even perform for free inside the stores! There will also be signing sessions, goodie bags and some exclusive vinyl and cds released!
If that's not enough to convince you, find out why Damien Rice, Paul McCartney, KT Tunstall, Tom Waits and many more musicians are supporting the day! Visit the official UK website at: http://recordstoreday.co.uk/ to find out more and how you could still get involved!
