While most celebrities are idiots when it comes to politics, social issues, and economics, there are some members of the music scene who might actually have their heads on straight. Consider these statements:

Remember, those who are shutting down our economy haven’t missed a paycheck since lockdown began. We are not in this together. — Van Morrison, singer and songwriter

And he’s speaking from a vantage point of moneyed success. He’s always going to be comfortable, but he still cares for all the people who have lost their businesses, who have lost their jobs, and who have lost the education of their children.

Van Morrison quote

Remember, those who are shutting down our economy haven't missed a paycheck since lockdown began. We are not in this together. — Van Morrison, singer and songwriter #shutdowns #Covid19 Click To Tweet

Here’s another quote, this time from singer and songwriter José Feliciano, a devout Catholic on when life begins to be important:

I used to be pro-abortion, many, many years ago. I would have called myself pro-choice. But then when I had my daughter Melissa, I went the other way. … When I heard Melissa’s little heartbeat on the monitor, I said, “Well, wait a minute. Even if all there is is a heartbeat, that’s life, that’s life.” — José Feliciano, singer and songwriter

I’m a strong believer in the sanctity of life, from conception on.

Being an artist is about confronting society. Making people comfortable? That bores the shit out of me. I don’t care about selling records; what I care about is liberty as a human being. — Fantastic Negrito, delta blues guitarist

We should all care about liberty as a human being.
