I did see him once back in the mid 1990's here in NJ and the place was jam packed to the rafters. Fantastic. My wife and I have been fans since the 1970's. I love his new Solo Acoustic Live CD. Haven't heard of this new one yet but will take a listen. Thanks. My only wish is that these venerable classic rock performers keep politics out of their music. Keep it about love and celebration. We're bombarded with poltics in the news all day long. Enough already.
I agree that we are bombarded with politics a lot - and I dislike it a lot. Most of Jackson's "political" songs are about the sadness of things that are done by governments; and about the plight of people who are suffering, however. I think, ultimately, they are actually about love, as hopefully they raise the consciousness of at least some peoople. Just my opinion. I think of politics as being democrats and republicans arguing about who is right and who is wrong; and putting each other down in order to make their point. Peace to you, Pdn.
By the way, there are two solo acoustic records, just in case you are not aware of that. If you have a chance to see him solo, I highly recommend it.
