Muhammad Ali vs. Roy? (Cassius or Credit?)

    NoCelebrity Aye lad, I knew you had it in you

    Okay, Today I'm talking about the American Icon, not the "Prophet."

    I think true Roy Harper fans can easily come up with obvious differences between the former Cassius Clay and our Roy (like religion and career). Today, during the broadcast ceremonies of Ali's islamic funeral I was struck by the many similarities:

    1. I'm not gay, but I love them both!
    2. Both are vehemently anti-war.
    3. Both are masters of the lyrical word. Style was different except for the humor and wit.
    4. Both embody the spirit of the Stormcock -- Loud voices of reason in the eye of the storm!

    I hope I left plenty of similarities for other people to add. Please, Please...

    OK. I've Said too much. Except...

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROY! Wish I could see you perform over here...
    If there's a new vid, I'll buy a dozen copies (US).
    How much to sponsor you (and Nick?) for a Chicago Show? Remember, Ali was re-born in Chicago...
