Rocktober: Get Out And Vote!

George Porter Jr. - The Meters, Porter Batiste Stoltz

Is this election different than past elections, why or why not?

George Porter Jr.
Only in one way that there is a man of color in it but the crap is the same.

What is the relationship between music and politics - and how, if at all, has this relationship affected your music?

I for one see no relationship between my music and politics, and it has not affected my music in any way.

If you could speak directly to all American voters, what would you say?

I would say this is your right to vote, use it for the betterment of man, women & child.

George Porter Jr.'s next gig is on October 11 with Porter-Batiste-Stoltz at the Loki Music Festival in Asheville, NC; tour dates available here.
