Cat Stevens

Real Name:
Steven Demetre Georgiou (July 21, 1948 - July 04, 1978), Yusuf Islam (July 04, 1978 - present)
Profile:
British singer/songwriter, born Steven Demetre Georgiou in London on July 21, 1948. His musical career was interrupted in 1969 when he contracted tuberculosis.
Stevens converted to Islam in 1977, adopting the name Yusuf Islam the following year. Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2014.
There has been a strong controversy regarding his support of the death fatwa of Salman Rushdie. He repeatedly stated that Rushdie had to be killed or that he wanted him burned. Later, he declared these statements as "stupid and offensive jokes" made "in bad taste."

So unfortunate that he turned into ideology, after such an important decade in human history, where finally ideology free thinking was possible (almost) worldwide. He started free and beautiful and free was his music ... now it's trapped and the music is crap.

Where did Cat Stevens go? Who knows. But one thing is for sure, his music is here to stay. Over the years of rock Cat Stevens has been playing, he has had at least 2 greatest hits songs per studio album. Great tracks such as "Morning Has Broken", "Can't Keep It In", "Oh Very Young" and "Father & Son" are songs that will remain in everyone's heart for all eternity. Cat Stevens has definately written his name down in the history of rock music. Long live Cat Stevens.
