John Lennon is hailed as a working class hero. Why is that? Because he was born of the working class? because he wrote a song called “working class hero” or because he spoke out about a number of issues about global injustice? It’s funny how his immense wealth (estd. £400 million) , his Phantom V Rolls Royce, personalised limo etc, isn’t seen as a hindrance to him being working class. Perhaps personal wealth isn’t relevant to ones self affirmation of being ‘working class’, but it certainly feels like it should. Really, what did John give people other than a song to whistle to and fro work

“I’ve heard so many great things about Tel Aviv and Israel, but hearing is one thing and experiencing it for yourself is another,” – Paul McCartney

Paul, I never thought of you as being an idiotic supporter of eugenic fascism, but I see it’s time to revise that opinion. Paul has also played at an independence celebration concert in Kiev, Ukraine. I’m seeing visions of him turning out to the the ‘lost PNAC signatory’.
Thank God mucisicans arn’t politicans. For all their nice lyrics, lets admit it, they are pretty useless really.
Addition: Of course, the problem with liking someones music is you tend to buy in to liking the artist too. It is therefore quite difficult to listen to criticism of ones favourite musicians or TV stars or whatever. I used to like the song “Anarchy in the UK by the Sex Pistols”, however as my awareness of their beliefs and exposure to what they said grew, I found myself liking the song less and less. What a weird species us humans are.
