IN MEMORY OF EDWIN STARR

WAR!

WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR?

APRIL 2, 2012: 9 years ago, on this day in 2003, singer songwriter Edwin Starr died with hardly a mention of his passing, and in the USA in particular, without the playing of his music. This is because, since September 11, 2001, his 1970s mega-hit protest song “WAR” was on a list of songs considered ‘unsuitable’ during war time. This list was compiled by America’s largest radio conglomerate, Clear Channel, although they insist that the song is not banned, just ‘unsuitable’. Also on that list were the classic  Simon & Garfunkel’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water”  and John Lennon’s “Imagine”… and other songs of peace and healing. The Iraq war began on March 19, 2003. Edwin Starr died from a heart attack 14 days later, age 61.  Click to hear Edwin Starr’s WAR.
