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.
