Sorry about the previous post ... it was inaccurate. They didn't unveil the statue in Alton, Ill., where he was born ...they unveiled the plans and the fact that they are going to do it. With a band and some hoopla. A little weird to have a ceremony, with a band, for plans. but--It;s MILES! The goal is to have the statue up by his 2014 birthday -- 2014. And here's how you can be a part of it: This from The Telegraph in Alton: "The Miles Davis Memorial Project has a fund-raising goal of $150,000 for the statue and landscaping. Commemorative bricks or 12x12 granite blocks can be purchased or donations can be sent to Miles Davis Memorial Project, c/o Pride Inc., 5800 Godfrey Road, Alden Hall, Godfrey, IL 62035." all the best to this effort!
