Musicians vs. politicians

I gave up on politics long ago and have maintained that it is the musician, not politician, who will change the world. Truth – an unknown in politics – is spoken on the streets (not on the computer or TV) by the troubadors moving from neighborhood street to street, town to town, across countries, borders. The Playing For Change Band, with members from several countries, performed several weeks ago at the John Lennon Tribute Concert in New York City. Awe. Passion. My skepticism disappeared. We really are back in Medieval days, when the travelling bards brought us news and stories. Corporate media (radio, TV, print), corporate recording acts with expensive contracts, corporate politicians only bring us what the corporate world wants us to hear. For the truth we must listen to music. Imagine.
