Not all musicians wants to be politicians

Aren’t we going a little too far when we expect all
musicians to make political statements when they create
music?

Paul Simon is going back to ‘Graceland’ with
pride
.

Graceland is perhaps the best original release
of the 20th
century

He did what few other musicians do. He
continues
to explore and celebrate other cultures through music,
which
is, after all, his specialty.

Learning about these other musicians and the countries
they
come from is a gift. He isn’t a politician, so let’s not
expect him to be one.

Not everyone wants to be Bono.
