    • Aaron Lewis - In some ways, Staind's triumphant set at "Epicenter 2011" is emblematic of their journey. They were never into press posturing, awards show bullshit, or trying to be something they're not. They write timeless songs like "Eyes Wide Open", "Spleen", "Mudshovel", and "Something to Remind You" and kick teeth in when they hit stage. Isn't that everything a hard rock band should do? Well, they do it better than anyone… - Rick Florino

    "Our philosophy at It Takes a Community Foundation is that it takes a community to sustain a community," says Lewis. "With diminishing public services and towns in crisis, we are looking for ways to support local groups that strengthen, engage and enrich the communities near our home in western Massachusetts. The R.H. Conwell Community Education Center is certainly one of them. We fought against the school's closing two years ago, when the state's misappropriation of funds would have forced the kids from Worthington and the surrounding areas to bus one hour each way to school and back. The community pulled together to reopen the school but it takes donations, corporate sponsors, grants and multiple fundraisers such as this one to keep the doors open for these kids."

    Anyone planning to play?
