Thread Name: The Wisdom of Yusuf Islam/Cat Stevens
Subject: RE: The Wisdom of Yusuf Islam/Cat Stevens
Quite frankly, I think anyone searching for anything in Yusuf Islam's words is a sign of a potential problem. You speak as if he were a prophet or a god. He is a singer. Nothing more. His music resonated with me once upon a time. I am not looking for the meaning of life in his words, I simply wonder if his music will be any good. Seems to me that folks that get so wound up over this guy must need some other things in their lives. Maybe the advice to go and make music, or write some of your own songs, is sound.
