Stop Now. What's That Sound?

 

 

In the spirit of "We've Got to Get Out of This Place" and "Sky Pilot," in which he used music to challenge the status quo,  Eric is offering a streaming-only sneak preview of his newly recorded - magnificent - version of Buffalo Springfield's 1966 protest anthem,

"For What It's Worth," as a timely - and timeless - message to his fans. 

 

"The whole idea of recording this song came as a result of a conversation I had with a young fan backstage, who asked me, -Where are the protest songs today?

 

Right then and there, I wanted to write something about the brutality that's going on in the world today but I couldn't find any better way to say it than Buffalo Springfield did in "For What It's Worth."

 

The music I love was created by the sons and daughters of slaves. My life's work has always been about honoring those people who suffered and thus, created a language of peace and salvation through music. 

Everything we believed in during the '60s, everything people fought and died for, is being jeopardized today".
