I cannot believe that we are about to have Live Aid style concerts for the environment (read more about here at the BBC website). Weren’t people already 100% totally convinced that Live Aid is a waste of time? Isn’t it clear by now that 3rd world charity doesn’t work? Why do we now need to extend this gimmick to the environment? Are musicians today so shallow and pathetic that they need causes to feel any sense of fulfilment? I have a better challenge to musicians today: try making more than one decent album in your career.
I blame Al Gore (the most uninspiring speaker of all time) for all this. With hindsight, George W. Bush victory in the 2000 election was a bless.
