Hated it the whole time but I went.
Yeah I probably would. To support a friend, and would hate it the whole time.
I wonder if Mr. Stills even knew who RFK Jr was and what he stood for, prior to the event???
I feel we here on DU are more aware of these things than most other people.
Have given offense to his friend of many decades, had he refused the invitation.
Pretty uncomfortable place for anyone to be put in.
I dont much like concerts.
But I know he has been a staunch supporter of liberal values all his life and the Democratic Party.
Yeah, Im willing to die on this hill because I think its a situation like me giving the neighbor hood kids money.
I think people are being unfair to him.
Its okay that people will beat up on me, I dont mind that.
I feel I owe him for the music.
I wrote to Jim Gordon while he was alive, in prison, for exactly the same reason. I felt I owed him my support.
Me. So trifling as to be utterly meaningless.
If I were the type to bet, I would bet Mr. Stills never even thought about how others might perceive this as supporting a right wing politician.
Hes been such a staunch supporter of the Democratic Party and liberal values, that its hard for me to believe people honestly think hes done a 180 degree turn now.
He was there to support his friend, thats all.
A few years ago the neighbor kids, who go to a right wing religious school, were going door to door to fundraise for their school, because they were forced to.
When they knocked, even though I hate those religious schools, I gave a little money.
To support the neighbor kids and be polite. Not to support their horrid church school, although yeah, I could see where the money was going to.
Mr. Clapton is a superb musician. He has political views I strongly disagree with. I still listen to
His music, and always will.
Bottom line, Mr. Stills was supporting a friend. Thats all.
Concerts and music events. Whether they agree with those musicians politically or not.
And yes, okay, celebrities all do share a love of the limelight. It is what drives them to be celebrities in the first place. So yeah, maybe Mr. Stills enjoys seeing and being seen. That seems plausible to me. 🤷🏻?♀️ That could be part of the reason, too.
What I do know with 100% certainty is, Mr. Stills does not support RFK Jr. or ANY right-wing politician or cause.
And this year has been especially brutal.
I think Mr. Stills is a human being like all of us, and when you suffer deep losses, you want to spend time with the friends and loved ones you have left, even if you disagree vehemently with their political views.
I still talk to family members who are pro-Trump. I grit my teeth when they bring up politics, and remain silent.
They are all the family I have left and I dont want to be alone.
Doesnt mean I support Trump. Just means I dont want to be alone.
Maybe Mr. Stills feels some of those same feelings.
Right wing politician, when Mr. Stills was only there to see and support his dear friend, Mr. Eric Clapton. Yeah, there are photos of him standing there
most likely he went up to exchange greetings with his friend, and as always, the cameras were clicking away.
I know enough about him to know he does not, has never, and will not, support nut job right wing politicians.
I really love this song of his.
Support RFK Jr. or any right wing politicians.
He showed up to support his close friend Eric Clapton, and like always the cameras were clicking away non-stop.
Please dont believe for one minute he supports RFK Jr. or believes in him. Nor does he share his friends disdain of the Covid vaccine.
Sometimes we have friends whose political beliefs vary wildly from ours.
Stephen Stills has lost a lot of musician friends lately and Im sure he is grateful for the old friends he still has left. Which is perfectly understandable.
Please give the dude a break.
Framed if you prefer a framed look, or as is. I understand it is the fashion these days to hang canvases unframed, mostly?
Oh did you ever read the history of Paris Green which Van Gogh used quite frequently?
Even today when I go to the museum and see his work, I see that shocking green color which can not be reproduced by the pigments we have today. We can get something a little bit like it but not that glowing, surreal, shocking green color. Its beyond fluorescent somehow, hard to describe unless you have seen his paintings up close. Have you seen some of his work in real life?
Anyway, wonderful work, keep it up! 👍👏👏👏
