"Come you masters of war...you that build the big guns, you that build the death planes, you that build all the bombs...you might say that i'm young, you might say i'm unlearned, but there'sone thing i know, thoughi'm younger than you, that even God won't forgive what you do.../Bob Dylan
I don't at what point and time in history, rock n' roll music got involved in and with politics. More so, when did it become such a crucial influence in world wide decision making, but it did. The crazy notion that music and aspecially rock n' roll music, can change the world...
I live in the holly city, just a 5 hour drive, give or take, from the Syrian border where people are being murdered by the minute and nobody gives a fuck. Sure, the UN tried to do something(after months of doing nothing) and a simple vote by Russia and China they continue to do nothing. Of course, Russia and China are known for caring about humen rights...NOT. Why doesn't the U.S. do something or the U.N or who ever. Where is the 21 century Bob Dylan to make awareness and create a movment that would give a damn about what's going on in Syria???
This Monday(27/2/2012, 21-23pm, Jerusalem time) night special "I know it's only R&R, and i love it", we'll take a musical journey to rock music. If by chance, we'll have listeners from Syria, i hope it woulg bring them some joy and hope.
