The second annual ABOVE GROUND” benefit concert, organized by Dave Navarro (Jane’s Addiction) and Billy Morrison (Billy Idol), was truly a night to remember. Taking place last week (September 16) at the packed Fonda Theatre in Hollywood, the star-studded event was an immersive evening of art and music celebrating the vinyl album as an art form, and at the same time raising awareness and funds for the treatment of mental health, with the profits being donated to MusiCares®, a charity of the Recording Academy™ that was established to safeguard the health and well-being of all music people. *Read an exclusive Q&A with Navarro and Morrison below.*

With one standout performance and collaboration after another (*see media pull quotes below*), the musical guests saluted two of the greatest albums of all time, which were performed in their glorious entirety: David Bowie’s The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Marsand the Stooges’ self-titled debut album (celebrating its 50th anniversary this year), on which the world was introduced to Iggy Pop.

Q&A WITH DAVE NAVARRO AND BILLY MORRISON
ABOUT “ABOVE GROUND”
How do you feel this year’s event differed from last year’s show? The energy in the room felt even more intense this year.
BILLY: The energy was drastically higher this year and I think that’s a direct result of pursuing a goal that is NOT based on self. That positive loving energy for change is contagious and if we ALL try to channel that, imagine what would happen.
DAVE: I think there might be a couple of factors. For one I think that there has been a broader conversation about mental health since last year, and I also think that we followed through on something we started almost two years ago which tends to have more weight and validity. Not just another jam night, but an actual movement. Billy and I have been playing Hollywood with so many different artists for so many years that I think doing it a second time was key in contrasting the difference between this event versus other gigs. I also think that our selection of albums to highlight may have been more generally known, but that doesn’t mean we will straighten out and ever go down the center. We choose albums that shaped us musically and that carry artistic merit beyond musicality.

Anyone who witnessed the concert could easily feel your dedication to MusiCares with your personal comments onstage about how the organization helps musicians in crisis. Can you give us some comments about this dedication?
DAVE: My dedication to the cause comes deep from within as I have personally suffered in ways that I could not possibly explain. The only ones who would understand in any capacity are the ones that I am speaking to. I know firsthand how isolating depression and mental illness can be and I feel I have a responsibility to share hope as I have found so much peace within the process of giving back.
BILLY: The dedication comes from deep personal experience, both with our own traumas and with our direct experience with MusiCares. Again, I think if you come from a place of truth and love, you cannot help but be passionate and dedicated. 

Will there be an Above Ground 3 next year and if so, perhaps you can talk about how your minds are already reeling with the possibilities of which albums to present?
BILLY: Yes, we are talking about Above Ground 3 already, but there is NO way I’m going to talk about what albums are in my head! That is a personal process that Dave and I enjoy for months…discussing, listening, and finding two records that mean that much to BOTH of us!!
DAVE: This is something we have become incredibly passionate about and intend to continue as long as possible. It’s going to take a lot of work and luckily for us there is no shortage of amazing artists and material that we can utilize in carrying this message further!”

Here’s a sampling of what the press had to say about the event:
“For an industry that has seen so many talented artists, and friends to many, from Chester Bennington and Chris Cornell to Avicii and Prodigy’s Keith Flint, succumb to battles with depression and addiction in recent years, just holding an open forum like this is so important. And it’s easy to see why it is so embraced by the music community. In two years Above Ground has quickly established itself as a night that can help people while delivering some unbelievable musical moments.”
–Steve Baltin, Forbes, 9/19/19

“…a very packed Fonda Theater enjoyed every minute of the star-studded Above Ground charity event… Above Ground is the pet project of Navarro and Morrison, with the goal to raise suicide awareness and break down the barriers that lead people to suffer emotional distress in silence. One can tell that this subject is something both men feel deeply about, both sharing in-depth stories of their own dark thoughts. Such vulnerability is refreshing in a world attempting to shed itself of toxic masculinity.”
–Roy Jurgens, Buzzbands.LA, 9/19/19

“…it was the kinda night that can happen only in Hollywood. A star-studded showing fit for the cosmos. That the display also happened to be for a damn good cause only made it even more so. After all, if having our heroes resurrect our gods doesn’t help keep people Above Ground, then what will?”
–John Hood, FLAUNT Magazine, 9/17/19

“…there was no doubting the passion of the organizers in bringing these great albums back into the spotlight and their dedication to the supporting the mental health battle. ‘Who’s next?’ Let’s hope that Morrison, Navarro and their musical friends will be back for another year to salute two more classic albums.”
–Chad Childers, Loudwire, 9/17/19
“Navarro and Morrison rounded up some of the industry’s best names to help them perform two full albums-The Stooges’ first album and David Bowie’s The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust-and raise funds for an important cause…What struck me most during my time there was the amount of passion and heart that was poured into both the performance and the event. You could really see how each artist on stage truly loved their craft. But more than that, they loved it so much that they were determined to use it for good.”
–Carmina Taylor, Music Connection, 9/20/19

Q&A WITH DAVE NAVARRO AND BILLY MORRISON
ABOUT “ABOVE GROUND”
 
Last year’s inaugural Above Ground event was both a success musically and as a fundraiser for MusicCares, raising awareness and funds for the treatment of mental health. From your perspective, can you talk about how your goals were achieved that night?
 
BILLY: I think Dave and I really did manage to get people talking about mental health and raised some valid discussion with people during the press we did for that show.
 
DAVE: I believe our goals were achieved beyond what we had hoped. In addition to raising awareness about mental health issues, we raised a substantial amount of money that went directly to those who need it most. Personally, many people have approached me since to thank me for our efforts to help end the stigma of mental health issues. I have spoken openly about my own and I think it comforts some to know they are not alone. Put it this way, we are working toward ending a need for our own event in a way!
 
This year’s event continues your celebration of vinyl albums as an art form. How did The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars and the self-titled debut album by the Stooges shape you musically?
 
BILLY: Oh, the Ziggy album was everything to me. A sexually ambiguous alien in a woman dress singing about space? What is there NOT to like about that?? Mick Ronson formed my whole playing–listening to his Les Paul when I was a kid was almost a spiritual experience. And the Stooges just personified raw power and emotion–the things that spoke to me the most when punk was happening.
 
DAVE: Both of these iconic albums helped shape the sound of Jane’s Addiction and were instrumental in terms of influences. As a young man I had been drawn to theatrical performances, Kiss and Elton John among them. When I got to Ziggy, it was as if I had found the perfect blend of theater, story and depth with a musical originality. As for Iggy, let’s just say that our punk rock roots were firmly in place when this album came out, pushing the boundaries of aggression and art and poetry, something that I see in Perry Farrell as well. It’s no wonder Iggy is one of his all-time favorites as well.
 
Why do you think both these albums continue to resonate with music audiences today? Why are they so pivotal?
 
BILLY: Great music is timeless. Especially important albums like these two. Kids growing up now respond to Iggy’s brutal power and Bowie’s sexual identities and soaring musical landscapes more than ever.
 
DAVE: I think they resonate because they are authentic. Authenticity lasts, lingers and influences. Both albums are crafted bodies of work. Track listing made a difference, what song started what side made a difference. These full-length albums to me are like fine art. Painstakingly created to stand the test of time. And they do!
 
Each of these albums is important on its own, but pairing them together, in one night, makes quite a statement. What inspired you to present both albums in one night?
 
BILLY: The Iggy and Ziggy thing has always worked. Even when they both did shows together back in the late 70’s/early eighties, the pairing of Iggy Pop and David Bowie worked. Bowie produced Iggy and they had this ongoing musical relationship that just seemed perfect and iconic to us.
 
DAVE: I think it’s no surprise that both Billy and I are heavily influenced by the Sacred Triangle of Rock and Roll: Bowie, Reed, Pop. Last year we did Velvet Underground as one of our choices, so it seems only fair that we complete the triangle!
 
As with last year’s event, the evening will be marked by an array of special guests TBA making appearances. Can you reflect about some of the special highlights from last year’s performance?
 
BILLY: Having Billy Idol perform The Velvet Underground’s “Heroin” is something that sent shivers down my spine. He nailed it and it was a totally unexpected moment. Also, having Marco Pirroni fly over from the UK to perform Adam And The Ants songs with us for the first time in many years was a definite highlight for both Dave and I.
 
One of my favorite moments was Macy Gray doing “Sunday Morning” by Velvet Underground. I recall being nervous about that one as Nico’s voice was so iconic… Who could pull it off? Luckily Macy joined us. Now, at rehearsals, Macy tends to just listen, learn, take in and get through so she knows what’s she’s doing. But we don’t know her process! SO…she had gotten through it a few times at rehearsal with us and we all felt it sounded decent. However, when Macy gets on stage, she completely changes and blossoms into the amazing singer and talent we have come to know and love. When she started singing live, I literally had shivers as she made it so special and her own. I was blown away.
 
Finally, and importantly, mental health is more than ever the big issue of the day, with devastating suicide rates on the rise. Can you talk about the important role that the music world can play as a consciousness-raiser?
 
BILLY: We all work in a business that gives us a platform. And it’s our duty to utilize that platform for good whenever we can. So the music world has so much influence and real power that so many people don’t use – Dave and I are just trying to use whatever platform we have to help make a small change and I encourage everyone to do the same. Together we can make a difference.
 
DAVE: I think one of the reasons music is such a great tool is that it can get at a feeling inside us that is uniquely our own, yet we can share it. Much like those who suffer from mental health issues, they are all uniquely personal but can be shared for a much broader conversation. I am proud to stand as a survivor of trauma and depression and drug addiction. I feel that anyone who chooses to keep pushing forward through the tough time and asks for help should be proud they have done so. We are warriors who choose to not let this disease kill us, yet we have trauma all throughout the body physically, which can be harnessed into addiction and self-destructive behavior. I am here to say, stand up and be proud that you choose life, no matter what it takes to stay in the game…you are NOT alone. Here are a handful of musicians who understand YOU and want to help YOU because WE GET IT. We understand you and consider you part of our family on the road to recovery.
