    Hmmm, don't know what to think of this. Remember, "Father and Son"?

    i'm guessing they got something on the guy since they won't let him in the country. i wonder why he is on the watch list.

    I was thinking the same thing.
    I used to dig his music in high school, but sort of lost interest when I found out what a nut he was.

    Not in reference to his converting to Islam but incidents like his supporting the bounty Ayatollah Khomeini(sp? and I think it was him) placed on Salman Rushdi's(sp?--too tired to look these names up) head.

    As a writer and free thinker, that shit just aint cool.
    Maybe Cat Stevens should take great songs like Peace Train and Father and Son and shove them up his HOLY ASS.

    But what do I know, I'm just a horny gremlin with a penchant for good music made by the devil.

    "I've been smiling lately
    Dreaming about the world as one
    And I believe it could be
    Something good's bound to come
    For out on the edge of darkness
    There runs the peace train
    Peace train take this country
    Come take me home again"
    -from Peace Train by Cat Stevens(Yusuf Islam)

    That's as good a reason as any.

    I heard on the radio, on my way to school, that he'd given money to 'charities' tied to terrorism.

    I'm sure he was as shocked as everybody else

    Nice huh? Maybe you'd like to have that as wallpaper, or post it on your sister site
