I always liked Bob Geldof in Pink Floyd’s The Wall. Now, I like him even more as George W. Bush’s biggest defender:
America doesn’t have a lack of empathy; they just don’t know the issues as well. Actually, today I had to defend the Bush Administration in France again. They refuse to accept, because of their political ideology, that he has actually done more than any American President for Africa. But it’s empirically so.
By the way, Roger Waters is going to rejoin Pink Floyd at the Live8 concert. After this, will there be any classic rock bands that have yet to mend their fences?
