That is great news, but I think Roger needs to get away from all the political stuff.

true, though the politics of Set the Controls or Eugene are a little more ambiguous...

if I remember the Schaffner book correctly, Roger's mum was an oldtime Labour activist in the 50s, so he was exposed to all the issues and debates from a very early age

when they all became millionaires after DSoTM, Dave Rick and Nick all spent their $$$ on typical 20something millionaire excesses, but Rog bought a block of flats in London and donated it for the poor folk to live in

I most definitely don't want to see him leaving that side of himself behind!

I think that now, more than ever, we need musicians/actors to speak out on what is going on in different parts of the world.

i think a man as brilliant and sensitive as Roger can not keep silent in the face of the current events. he foretold the 1st gulf war and he is aware of the fact that we are witnessing these days some really critical times that might lead to the destruction of the world. i do not expect him to ignore such grave issues and write romantic songs songs particularly at this stage.
