David Gray attacks Live 8 acts
Gigwise.com quotes the Babylon singer as saying: "It's a garish sight to me to have people who don't know what they are talking about, patronising their audience about changing the world. I don't believe in soundbite politics."
Gray's preferred method of alleviating world poverty is to put trust in governments to use taxes wisely. “Otherwise where does this money come from? World leaders? Do they go to the special 'world leader' pot and get the money? It's just… ridiculous."
David's criticism follows Elton John's statement that Live 8 was devoid of charisma.
