Paris, France (PRWEB) December 12, 2005
Mick Star, the US born recluse rock musician and author of “Jets” (http://www.mickeystar.com), his haunting anti-Iraq war song, has set MP3 download records in the UK, France, Germany and Spain as the Bush White House is rumored to continue to suppress his work in America. And Mick Star’s claim of a Bush White House blacklisting is gaining credibility as Pentagon accounts of the Bush White House “buying” supposed free press in Iraq continue (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/4490324.stm ).
Mick Star’s Website (http://www.mickeystar.com) is offering “Jets” at no charge and encourages swapping. And Mick Star can do all of this in the US despite the rumored Bush White House blacklisting because Mick Star works independent of the traditional music business (record companies, publishing companies, and entertainment attorneys). Mick Star has financed his recordings and posted them online. Beholden to no one, Mick Star can speak freely. And on “Jets,” he does speak freely.
One American record company executive, asking not to be identified for fear of business reprisals by the Bush White House, says, “Last month I didn’t take this Bush White House banning Mick Star story seriously. But now, with more and more stories in the news about how the Bush White House has controlled the Press here in the US and even in Iraq… I don’t know. Mick Star probably has a case. He certainly makes a statement with ‘Jets’. And, when all else is said and done, it’s just a great David vs. Goliath storyline.”
Mick Star and “Jets” will probably never get airtime on the radio in America. It is a well known fact that Corporate America (newspapers, television stations, radio stations and record companies) is on a short leach held tightly by the Bush White House. But as PCs, laptops and ipods continue to eclipse newspapers, television stations, radio stations and record companies worldwide, Mick Star is destined to become a cyberstar in the USA as he has here in Europe.
