I try to come in and be that alternative source of information. I always felt a musician’s job was to provide an alternative source of information, a spiritual and social rallying place, somewhere you went to have a communal experience. . . . There is a long tradition of the artist being involved in the life of the nation. For me, it goes back to Woody Guthrie, James Brown, Curtis Mayfield and Bob Dylan. These were all people who were alternative sources of information
