No, I doubt it. Cat changed his name to something pretty Middle Eastern sounding and is on the "no fly" list. He lives in Great Britian, I believe.

The artist formerly known as Cat Stevens. Now Yusuf Islam, member of the "no fly" list.

'Yusuf Islam'.

Edit - beat me ;)

Damn what a songwriter, though.

[QUOTE=dkim68;1036770]Is this really him? Can anyone confirm?

Nope. He doesn't go by that name anymore. He's Muslim and goes by Yusef Islam. He lives in London if I remember correctly.

I believe that is correct.

And to add my opinion, I seriously doubt that Cat is much of a threat. He was on an aircraft inbound to the US a while back that was either turned around or diverted to Canada because he was on the "no fly" list. I suppose his easy listening sound and mellow lyrics pose some sort of security threat to "democracy".

Come on, y'all. Government has a responsibility to harass and restrict the movement of dangerous folk balladeers.

I'd like to see that hippie try to come aboard the Peace Train without tamper-proof national ID!!! MUAHAHAHA!!!!

With love,

I defended him when that happened but it's hard to defend him for some of the comments he made about Salmon Rushdie. It's sickening how much religion can sometimes change people for the worst.

AK is Alaska I believe. Someone up there playing a game.

Unbelievable singer and songwriter though. Moonshadow is an amazing song and is true poetry. Not a bad ballad for the "Revolution" no matter what dont give up and look forward to the future. Not sure if that is how it should be interpreted but that is how I am reading it.

Moon Shadow
Oh, Im bein followed by a moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow
Leapin and hoppin on a moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow

And if I ever lose my hands, lose my plough, lose my land,
Oh if I ever lose my hands, oh if.... I wont have to work no more.
And if I ever lose my eyes, if my colours all run dry,
Yes if I ever lose my eyes, oh if.... I wont have to cry no more.

And if I ever lose my legs, I wont moan, and I wont beg,
Yes if I ever lose my legs, oh if.... I wont have to walk no more.
And if I ever lose my mouth, all my teeth, north and south,
Yes if I ever lose my mouth, oh if.... I wont have to talk...

Did it take long to find me? I asked the faithful light.
Did it take long to find me? and are you gonna stay the night?
