Ozzy Osbourne And Cat Stevens Support Jon Stewart’s Rally To Restore Sanity

31 October 2010, Washington, D.C. – John Lennon’s “Power to the People” comes to mind when thinking about Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert’s Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear at the National Mall in Washington, D.C., yesterday.

Approximately 200,000 people attended the free rally organized by Comedy Central fake news anchors Stewart and Colbert. Supporters were treated to some surprise performances outside the known musical line-up.

Stewart brought out Yusuf Islam, the artist formerly known as Cat Stevens to perform his famous song about disarmament “Peace Train”. The performance was interrupted by Colbert and none other than rock legend Ozzy Osbourne singing “Crazy Train”. The playful battle was put to rest with “Love Train” by the Ojays.

Other performers included the funk groove band The Roots, John Legend, Kid Rock and Sheryl Crow (with the duet “The Least I Can Do Is Care”) and Jeff Tweedy and Mavis Staples a rendition of “You Are Not alone”.

The event was peaceful and restored the sobering thought that there are conscious-thinking Americans who don’t buy into the lies and corruption of politicians… who care about their country and are willing to do something about it. Even if nothing comes from yesterday’s rally, at least we know and the politicians know that real power can be in the hands of the people if good people act on good intentions to right wrong.

It’s amazing how two comedians were able to get over 200,000 people to come together peacefully on a political stand. One thing is for certain, the rally proved that power is with the people… if it involves free entertainment.
