James, Carly, and friends say no thanks to nukes

Musicians United for Safe Energy, or MUSE, was founded shortly after the Three Mile Island accident to oppose nuclear energy. MUSE organized a series of “No Nukes” concerts in New York in September 1979.

Rolling Stone devoted a cover to the headliners (including James Taylor depicted with his hand atop the head of wife Carly Simon) and later called the concerts “a high-water mark of inspiration and optimism… a stunning testimony to the depth of the shared beliefs of the generation which came of age in the sixties.”
