Thread Name: The Wisdom of Yusuf Islam/Cat Stevens
Subject: RE: The Wisdom of Yusuf Islam/Cat Stevens
I guess I exaggerated somewhat on the leaning of the Cat Stevens pro side.

Personally I never cared for his music, except as pre mentioned with the Matthew and Son excerpt. As to him being a 'likeable' guy ... well, I never met him, so I can't say, but I do have a distaste of his stand on his support the fatwah against Salman Rushdie ... I mean wouldn't any non-violent humane loving passenger on the Peace Train also feel an aversion towards him.
