Should We Keep Politics Out Of Music? I believe we should
Too often in the last few years and in this election campaign music has become embroiled with politics. As an example this is an event taking place the day before the election.
But why is politics even involved with music? All musicians like all sports fans will have varying political views. Music is for relaxation. At a concert I want to relax and enjoy the music without listening to a monotonous Corbyn rap.
Pragmatically musicians have no better perspective on politics than football fans. Where next? Shall we be treated to Chelsea employing their fans to vote a specific way? Will we get flyers from Tesco telling us who to vote for? The logic is obvious.
I shall keep on shooting gigs with no thoughts for the political views of anyone
