Mick Star’s “Jets” (and Stock) Soar

Share Article

Rumored to be blacklisted by Bush White House, Mick Star’s anti-Iraq war protest song “Jets” has become a cult favorite of downloading bloggers world-wide.

One month after headlines began to appear about a rumored Bush White House blacklisting of reclusive rock musician Mick Star’s “Jets”, an anti-Iraq war protest song, his web site (http://www.mickeystar.com) has become an international cult stopover. “Jets” can be downloaded for free at http://www.mickeystar.com and bloggers from all over the world have been helping themselves and spreading Mick Star’s “Jets” globally in recent weeks.

“It’s gratifying” Mick said in a rare interview with Michelle Greentree of eCom Marketing Abstracts (London, UK). “Ever since I published “Jets” I have become persona non-grata to US press and music industry people. But thankfully Canada, Europe, Australia and New Zealand are keeping me and “Jets” alive. To this day, it amazes and saddens me how the Bush White House has been able to suppress any and all dissent in America.”

It may be the recent Libby indictment and Rove legal limbo or it may be the sobering toll of American soldiers maimed and killed in Iraq, intensifying the questions directed to the Bush White House about the war itself, that gives Mick Star cause to believe download totals of "Jets" in the US will begin grow. “I don’t ever expect to hear "Jets" on an American radio station,” said Mick Star with a smile, “because everybody knows the radio stations in the US are on a short corporate leash. It’s the PCs, laptops and ipods that are the new outlets for music worldwide and that’s where more and more mp3 “Jets” are landing everyday.”
