What is a musician?
Actually, when you think about it, why is it that musicians have any political impact at all? We take it for granted that a John Lennon would sing anti-war songs, that Dylan would write about revolution in the air, that Casals would ring the church bell above his town even though the Nazis banned it, that Beethoven would refuse to get off the street to let nobles pass, that Benny Goodman would cross the color line and have blacks like Lionel Hampton in his band.
Why do people who play music become social catalyst? Why not people who design buildings, or people who perform surgery, or people who direct traffic? Why the musician?
