A Conversation with Edward Elson, U.S. Ambassador to Denmark (1993-1998)
In 2001, an article in the Palm Beach Daily News declared, “Since he served for six years as the U.S. ambassador to Denmark and helped create National Public Radio two decades earlier, it’s hardly a surprise that Edward Elson is a rich source of wild and woolly political tales.” A member of the Council of American Ambassadors, he has served on the boards for numerous businesses and nonprofit organizations.

A Conversation with Jason Newsted, Musician, Artist
The talented bass guitarist was in the heavy metal band Metallica from 1986 to 2001, and played with them again when the group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2009. He also played with Ozzy Osbourne, Voivod and the self-titled Newsted, for which he provided lead vocals as well as bass. Beginning in 2006, he went “from making crazy and colorful music to crazy and colorful art,” and had his first gallery show in San Francisco in 2010.
