Welsh metallers Lostprophets reckon rockers should stay out of politics and
keep their anti-war ramblings to themselves. The band?s Ian Watkins told
Radio 1: “I don’t think they know the background of what’s really going on.
They just say ‘anti-war is cool – let’s speak out, let’s speak out. More
record sales’, which I think is wrong. It doesn’t matter how many movie
stars say ‘I don’t like the war’ – it will not make a difference. You know,
do you think Bush cares? Like Bush is saying ‘oh, I don’t know about this
war now. Ms Dynamite said it was wrong'”.
Co-member Mike Lewis added: “Mr Bush doesn’t care what George Clooney
thinks. Tony Blair doesn’t even listen to his backbench MPs – never mind
listening to some rock star…”
Marty: All I can say is; here here! Most of the artists speaking out are just doing it for the publicity anyway. Alas, not all publicity is good publicity. Just ask the Michaels (Jackson or George).Powered by Sidelines
