For those who have not seen it, here is a good video about about what is going on down at Ground Zero now with the Memorial.
The guy running it seems to have the right idea, and I was pleasantly surprised.
I'll open this chapter up with another couple of newer songs inspired by the events of Sept 11, 2001.
Seems to me the Chapins will be well represented in this series.
Then I will take issue with our NYC Mayor Bloomberg.
He has banned all references to religion and prayer at the Memorial Services this weekend.
I gotta think he is wrong on that, and who the hell made him King?
How did he become soley the one who makes all the decisions for how this Remembrance is run?
Listen, Bloomberg is so rich, he lives in a world where it is impossible to relate in any meaningful way with the average person.
Sure, you see video of him talking to the regular Joe, but he has no idea what they are really like.
On top of that, he is a politician, putting him even more out of touch!
So I will musically fill that void that is so important to so many Americans, and honor the solace provided them in those sad days after the attacks.
Seems to me, with the government warning of possible terrorist attacks BECAUSE of the 10th Anniversary, a little Prayer can't hurt.
Rest assured I am no holy roller, and I GUARANTEE you my set of songs for The Souls We Lost will NOT be boring whether you a believer or not.
And I will issue my own decree ala Bloomberg...no politicians are allowed to listen to my Rockollections!
Don't need them, don't like them, don't want anything to do with them!
Next week, some Questions, plus Poetry, a BIG two-letter word, a look at Luck and Good Fortune, and Optimism In The Face Of Adversity.
All brought to you in the wonderfully diverse form of our Rock & Roll Music, and throughout this series it will all be in the lyrics!
