The David Frost Show
-"We're just gonna... Welcome back, welcome back with John and
Yoko, Yoko and John
This song is written by, the John Sinclair song, who wrote that song?
-"Ah, John Sinclair, I wrote this one. He spent two years in prison,
virtually in isolation and solitary, in case he infiltrated the other
prisoners or something. He didn't want any help for two years because
he thought why bother, justice will let me out, my appeals will let
me out......after two years he began to worry and he asked for some
help. We went down, had a rally with 15.000 people. We weren't the only
people there, Little Stevie Wonder, and Phil Ochs and Alan Ginsburg...a
really big rally."
-"Big Stevie Wonder now!"
-"Big Stevie Wonder, yeah, and it was a beautiful show. Many people
devoted their time to it and we came along, sang the songs we sang to
you and this one, John Sinclair, which was the final one. By a stroke
of good luck he was released on Monday.
