    Here's the writeup from VH1 about the Behind the Music on Cat Stevens. It's an interesting episode. Not VH related though, so I'm moving this to the Music Only Forum. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Cat Stevens: Behind The Music tracks the musical and spiritual journeys of the '70s superstar singer-songwriter, born as Steven Georgiou and now known as Yusef Islam. Steven's early pop chart successes in the late '60s were followed by a year with tuberculosis complicated by his own vague discontent, but he followed his near-death experience with rebirth as a huge international star in the '70s, with hits like "Wild World," "Lady D'Aarbanville," "Moonshadow," "Peace Train," "Morning Has Broken," "Miles from Nowhere" and many others. But another near-fatal incident, however, when Stevens almost drowned while swimming in the Pacific, changed his life forever. He answered the call to the Muslim faith, and became Yusef Islam. Back in his native London, the former idol has established a school for Islamic children, is an activist for war orphans from Bosnia, among other humanitarian efforts, and is busy recording new music.

    I'm a pretty big Cat Stevens fan and I thought that was one of the better Behind the Music VH1 put on. The entire Tea for the Tillerman and Teaser and the Firecat albums are good easy listening.
    Gozer the Traveller will come in one of the pre-chosen forms. During the rectification of the Vuldronaii the Traveller came as a very large and moving Torb. Then of course in the third reconciliation of the last of the Meketrex supplicants they chose a new form for him, that of a Sloar. Many Shubs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Sloar that day I can tell you.

    I love both of those albums. I have his latest greatest hits CD. Most of the songs are off of those albums.

That's the way it's always been and that's the way it will always be. Because without the music, what is there? Nothing. There's nothing without the music. You can't even cop an attitude without the music (laughs).
