Rock and Rap and Pop are going global today with the “Live 8” event. A next-gen version of 1985’s “Live Aid,” this re-do is again headed up by Bob Geldof.
The theme this time is poverty. This world-wide concert event is billed to promote poverty awareness. Allegedly as many as 5.5 billion people will witness some part of the concert. One would think that if 5.5 billion people were made aware of poverty dome real differnce could be made.
But the artists show up in their limos, sing their songs that depersonify people, especially women, glorify violence, sexual activity and materialism, then go home to their posh cribs.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t have high hopes for the New Poverty Awareness.
