why is it that everytime a news story mentions Yusuf the reporter feels compelled to say "cat stevens" afterward. its been like 10 years since dude changed his name. he isnt "cat stevens" anymore and everyone knows about it.

I heard Solomon Rushdie is his opening act.

I'm being followed by a big Muslim, big Muslim, big Muslim.

Thanks Dennis Miller for the gem

It hasn't been like 10 years since the name change, it's been like 30.

*some* people know about it, but some people, like me, didn't - despite having known that "Cat Stevens" no longer went by "Cat Stevens," I had no clue who Yusuf Islam was. and I'll bet ol' Yus'd rather have my attention, and possibly my money, than fly completely under the radar of anyone who wasn't a devoted fan...

then again, I could be wrong, and he'd be the first performer to want that. except Phish in Maine. :-)

his new stuff is painfully cheesy. not a far stray from a lot of his early cat stevens stuff. Although trouble is and always will be a beautiful song and my fav from cat stevens

cat stevens wasn't his "real" name either. Does anyone remember his birth name. Seems like it was Greek?

who cares what he's refereed to in an article, the world knew him as Cat but now everyone knows his name is Yusuf. Big deal....the point is he's hitting the stage again! even for just 4 dates in Europe i'm still really f'ing exited to hear these shows. I hope he comes to the United States!

Yusuf come to America, I'm in dire need of some refreshing acoustic music! America needs real acoustic talent like yours to show all of these wannabe's how it's really done.

Dankb23 there is no such song as "Wide World", (you must not be too much of a fan) the name is "Wild World".
