Been waiting for a protest anthem for our times? This might be it…


You might well remember “We Didn’t Start the Fire” by Billy Joel.  Well…someone joked with me the other day that it was time to rewrite it for current times.  I thought it was a great idea…so here it is, with video! Sit back and watch the last 34 years fly by in 4 minutes and 40 seconds….and if you like it, share it. Let’s make this huge!

And don’t forget to throw a view coins in my virtual guitar case!  You can donate here.
