Alan Parsons doesn't give in to Roger Waters

Roger Waters, the anti-Israeli musician from Britain, tried to get fellow musician Alan Parsons to cancel his performance in Israel. Thankfully, Parsons rejected Waters' request:
British musician and songwriter Alan Parsons refused to cancel his performance in Tel Aviv on Tuesday, despite a personal appeal from former Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters. [...]

In a response to Mr. Waters, Mr. Parsons wrote on Facebook: "I appreciate your note and your passion. However, this is a political matter and I am simply an artist."

"I create music, that is my raison d'être. Everyone — no matter where they reside, what religion they follow, or what ideology they aspire to — deserves to hear it if they so choose," he added. "Music knows no borders, and neither do I."
I praise him for not putting politics before entertainment, unlike Waters, who does, and whose albums are not worth buying if he keeps this up.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
