This is about a music session that began in The Boat LA studio, owned by Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, that is now opened up for the whole world to take part in. It’s based around the legendary song ‘Changes’ by David Bowie because we believe that change is possible for men’s health and that music can be a key part of this.
This original recording session features a host of famous faces including Bob Forrest & Josh Klinghoffer (Bicycle Thief), Rachel Haden, Petra Haden & Anna Waronker (That Dog, Beck, Foo Fighters) and Cleto Escobedo (Jimmy Kimmel live). Joining them in the WholeWorldBand online studio are a number of iconic artists including Stewart Copeland (The Police), Graham Gouldman (10cc), and Richard Barbieri (Japan, Porcupine Tree) with many more to be announced, creating one of the world’s biggest supergroups.
Movember are inviting everyone to be a part of the MoChanges global music video – all you have to do is download the WholeWorldBand app and press Record. The app will automatically add you to the Changes video along with the other stars. You can sing along with the lead vocal, add guitar or drums, sing the chorus – “Ch-Ch-changes” – or just dance around. You can make your own personal Movember video and share it on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter. So join in, have fun, and help change the face of men’s health while you’re doing it.

“Years ago I wrote a song called “Memphis,” and sang it on the radio with Dr. Drew. A man named Memphis was listening to my song from a federal prison cell. That night changed both of our lives forever. So moved by the song, Memphis decided to get sober and change his life when paroled. He is now a personal friend and inspiration to me and countless others. Since achieving freedom, Memphis has been an exceptional student at Chemical Dependency college and faced overwhelming adversity including staying sober through a harrowing battle with cancer as well as the horrible restrictions and stigma of being a convicted felon. Through the years, I have been amazed by his enormous determination and optimism. Due to his prior life and convictions coupled with his battle with cancer, Memphis, like many other Americans has found it difficult to find gainful employment while achieving his ultimate goal of becoming a certified addiction counselor. While I can help him once he graduates, I think we all can help now. Lets get together and make sure that Memphis has a warm and loving home for the Christmas holiday.”
– Bob Forrest
