Kentroversy on 'Esoteric Science Roundtable' TV Show!
KENTROVERSY ON 'ESOTERIC SCIENCE ROUNDTABLE' TV SHOW!
On Thursday, April 5, 2007 -- host Kory Kortis and I discussed my report OCCULT AND QABALISTIC SYMBOLISM IN ROCK MUSIC, which was published on November 9, 2006. We talked about many bands and artists in the field of rock music that inject occultism into their music, song lyrics, album cover designs, and on-stage costuming and presentation.
Among the subjects discussed were Led Zeppelin, Grateful Dead, The BEATLES, John Lennon 'The Magickal BEATLE,' KISS, Ozzy Osbourne and Black Sabbath, Blue Oyster Cult, and Todd Rundgren's album Initiation.
I also pointed out a coincidence between John Lennon's assassination, and the lyrics to Bring On The Lucie (Freeda Peeple), from his 1973 Mind Games album. Mark David Chapman told the police on the scene, that he kept hearing "Do it, do it, do it, do it!" in his head, which Bring On The Lucie contains a line "Do it, do it, do it, do it now." The Lucie of the song is Lucifer, as pointed out in the lyrics, where the following is stated:
"We understand your paranoia
But we don't want to play your game
You think you're cool and know what you are doing
666 is your name"
Kory and I also discussed the 60's and 70's bands such as The 13th Floor Elevators, Lucifer's Friend, and White Witch -- as well as newer artists such as The Golden Dawn (band) and Kate Bush.
At one point Kory made he following comment about our discussion:
"Very interesting, to say the least!"
As part of my final comments, I mentioned that:
"I guess the bottom line here is this. All intelligent people are looking for answers beyond what the establishment puts before us as explanations for why things are the way they are. I believe that some of these highly-intelligent musicians -- whether they are jazz people, or rock people, or blues or whatever -- are looking for these answers that are not within these establishment systems."
This interview can be downloaded here, when it becomes available. In the meantime, I am in the process of setting up a seperate archive of my growing audio-visual interview archives. Please watch this space for more on this in the days ahead.
