    Politics and Music: Jon Crocker, ever-touring folk artist

    Jon Crocker in Cedar City, UtahJon Crocker, the ever-touring folk artist, discusses his perspective on music and politics. This is the second in a series of interviews with musicians discussing political perspectives.

    What role do politics play in you900彩票下载安卓r music?

    Not a very large one … if I ever write topical songs, they’re usually about social or environmental issues as opposed to political ones, and even with those issues I don’t really write about the political sides.

    What role do you900彩票下载安卓 think music should play in politics?

    I think that should be up to the musicians. If someone wants to make political music, they should. I think songwriters should write about whatever they are passionate about.

    Jon Crocker in Cedar City, UtahWould you900彩票下载安卓 ever allow a mainstream political candidate to use you900彩票下载安卓r music in campaigning? Why or why not?

    Yes, I would, but only if they paid me lots of money and I had no major objections to their platform.

    Would you900彩票下载安卓 consider throwing you900彩票下载安卓r endorsement behind a candidate you900彩票下载安卓 were passionate about?

    Well, first, I’d have to feel passionately about a candidate. I suppose that if I did, i would endorse them and whatnot. but I don’t.

    Why are the political opinions of popular musicians such a hot topic with their fans?

    I’m not really sure about this one, but it might explain why I’m not a big fan of Ted Nugent.

    Do you900彩票下载安卓 think there are major problems with the modern political system? Does celebrity involvement play a part in this?

    Oh yes, I think there are many major problems with the modern system, but celebrity involvement has very little to do with that. Mostly ,I think it’s the result of letting a bunch of rich assholes run you900彩票下载安卓r 900彩票下载安卓land and of the dissenting public not be able to stand up and speak their minds without being shot by rubber bullets.

    Are you900彩票下载安卓 following the 2008 U.S. elections? Are there any thoughts you900彩票下载安卓’d like to share on what you900彩票下载安卓’ve seen?

    I haven’t been able to follow them very much yet, as I’ve been overseas for months. but I’ll say that Europeans seem very keen on Obama. They’re all keen on having an intelligent person be US president. They’re crazy.
