cat stevens live in concert from 1973 on bbc 4

Bugger, never saw it in the TV Guide 'til later......don't suppose you recorded it???

HHiBSS....they are as right wing as you'll get, the musical equivalent of Dick Cheney and that is what all of there music is based upon. Their lyrics are a reaction to the socialist politcal movement in Canada at the time....RUSH are utter scumbags that want to eradicate unions and all forms of welfare.

As po-faced as you are you know f"k aw about music as BtB has skillfully proven. :wasntme:double

I've have an extra ticket for CopaCabana currently running at Johnstone Toon Hall....words and music by the great one, performed by the Pheonix Theatre Group. :D

If you see this show Bazza's socialist muaical might redress the damage done by hours of fascist brainwashing from RUSH. :lol:

Funny you should like Cat Stevens, I find his "spiritualism" rather cloying and much prefer the humanist lyrics of Neil Peart.

Cat Stevens, or Yusuf Islam as we should perhaps call him, endorsed the death sentence ordered by the Ayatollah Khomeini against novelist Salman Rushdie for writing the book The Satanic Verses.

As I've said elsewhere putting people on pedestals only mean that they've further to fall.

The question is do Peart's lyrics negate the value of the band's music. For some people they obviously have done, but I feel that the fascistic nature of the lyrics are exagerrated by many critics and that you cannot blame Peart/Rush for the economic savagery of the Thatcher and Raygun regimes.

It might be of interest to note that one survey of Rush fans found that they were on the side of the priests in 2112! :rolleyes:
