I visited his museum in Pittsburgh a few months ago and there was a giant wall-covering rectangle of rusty metal with some stains in the middle implying it had liquid poured on it and then left to oxidize. Then I leaned over to read more about it. 
in the late 1970s, Andy Warhol made a series of paintings using urine. For the paintings in the Oxidation series, he and his studio assistants poured their urine (or urinated) directly onto mural-sized canvases, painted with copper-mixed paint and laid out on the floor. Visitors to The Factory were invited to contribute too while observing the spectacle of creating such works. The resulting effect was abstract “blooms” of green, yellow and orange tones created through oxidation, the chemical reaction between the urine and the metal-infused paint. Warhol, allegedly, went as far as to instruct one of his assistants, Ronnie Cutrone, not to urinate in the morning when he woke up at home and to wait until he arrived at the studio. Cutrone’s urine created a “pretty” colour on the canvas because of his regular vitamin B intake, Warhol wrote in a 1977 diary entry.

Politics or not, saw his show earlier this month...he and his band put on a stellar performance.
I'll add a roger comment: â€œIf you’re one of those ‘I love Pink Floyd, but I can’t stand Roger’s politics’ people, you might do well to f**k off to the bar right now,”

Kurtster, not meant to be directed at you...rather, i am yielding to your comment that perhaps politics, even rogs, don't really belong in a thread about music.

Many years ago all the political threads were under attack.  It was said that they had no place here this being a music website.

One thing that fueled the rage against political anything here was the interjection of politics into non political threads.  I learned that when I did it once or twice.

Remember the kitten bombs?  In fact SteelyD once called me out for it in the song comments years ago IIRC.  The lesson learned all of those years ago was keep politics in the political threads and do not trash the other threads.  His recent post in here was meant to turn this thread back to the topic.

My earlier post was to try and accomplish the same thing.  It was ignored, most likely because who I am and what I appear to represent.  So I went the other way and brought it full on.

So here we are.  While I have long argued that politics is a huge part of music by its very nature, I accepted that there were places that were appropriate and inappropriate to discuss politics here.  I guess we have tossed that to the wayside here.  Anything goes, anywhere.  So be it.

Don't be surprised or object when someone brings up Paula Dean's issues in a cooking or recipe thread as one example of what not to do.

Carry on.  I guess we really can't have anything nice anymore.

"Mao’s portraits pointed to how political figures are often forced to shape their image in the public eye so that people can accept them and their messages. His use of repeated images suggested that the journey to stardom and celebrity had and has always been characterized by relentless public relations campaigns."

This was an earlier (Mar) post. I think the confusion (disagreement?) for some is he doesnt see much difference between a Putin, Biden, Johnson, Trump... 

Roger Waters Calls Putin’s Invasion of Ukraine ‘The Act of a Gangster’

"I will do everything in my power to help bring peace back to you and your family and your beautiful country," he writes to Ukrainian fan
ROGER WATERS CONDEMNS Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in an open letter to 19-year-old Ukrainian woman named Alina Mitrofanova. “I am disgusted by Putin’s invasion of Ukraine,” he wrote Wednesday.

“It is a criminal mistake in my opinion, the act of a gangster. There must be an immediate ceasefire. I regret that Western governments are fueling the fire that will destroy your beautiful country by pouring arms into Ukraine, instead of engaging in the diplomacy that will be necessary to stop the slaughter.”

If your focus is to stop the war at all costs, and you bear none of the cost or loss, then it's easy to say negotiate and settle.

Imagine being stopped on the side of the road with your family when a very large, strong man walks up and says "I'll let the rest of you go if you give us your daughter".  Of course you say no, and start fighting.

Then, some A-hole with a bunch of fans says... "there's no need to fight... you were given a choice".  "You probably would have taken the offer if that loud mouth wife of yours didn't get involved."

The interviews I've seen with Waters on this tour, and his general disdain for the people paying to see him in the country he so hates feels like the last thrash of relevancy for someone with a little too much self-importance.
