Wayne Kramer of MC5 - Jail Guitar Doors

I have been getting into the music of MC5 lately. Wayne Kramer, lead guitarist, is one of the few members still alive.  He served time in prison in the 1970s for drug possession.  Here is a wonderful video of the organization he works with, Jail Guitar Doors, that helps prisoners use music to rehabilitate themselves into the world. I have lots of admiration for Wayne Kramer - for being a survivor of drug abuse and for helping others get their lives back on track.
