Willie & the Wailers
Willie and the Wailers
Street Festival at 716 Asa Norte, Brasilia
Ok, the other night I stumbled across this band playing in my neighborhood. All they played was reggae, so, I called them Little Willie and the Wailers. And these guys were quite good I must say although I'd like to see if they could play more than one styles of music. A lot of young musicians seem to be fascinated with what I call the Bob Marley syndrome much like the Che Guevara syndrome that young and dumb college student seem to be duped into. If you actual research the lives of both of these people you'll see there is not really a lot to admire. Bob claimed to smoke about one pound of dope a day and Che was nothing more than a thug and a terrorist. Sometimes I'm surprised that no one has come up with a Charles Manson tee shirt the three of them would make a great pair. However, being a musician myself I know the power of music and how it can be used for good or evil or to heal or destroy. And so I pray that Willie and his band will use their talents that God gave them for good. Lord know theirs enough evil in the world today.
