GUEST,HiLo Musicians you admire for reasons other than music (34) Musicians you admire for reasons other t 20 Sep 16

There are a number of musicians I have always admired , not only for their music but for having the courage of their social and political convictions. There are many who could be names but I am going to mention the ones I admire most because they have stayed true to the causes they believe in.
In No Particular order..
Billy Bragg, I don't always agree with him but I always respect him.
Joan Baez, over fifty years of speaking up for non violence and world peace, just an admirable woman.

Paul Robeson, Human beings don't come any Braver than this man.
Bruce Cockburn has stood up for many causes over the years and continues to do so.
Even though I am not a big fan of Pete Seeger as a musician, I do admire his years of fighting for justice.

   I know I could go on, but these four are ones I especially respect.
   Who are the ones you admire, I am really interested to know.

   Thanks in advance
