Fighting Music of World War II
One of my idols, Les Paul, remembers the Fighting Music of World War II. (Hat tip: Geepers.)
Showtime approaches, and there is a light, respectful tapping by band members at his dressing room door. But Paul isn’t quite finished talking about his memories of the war era. “We were all so united to win that war,” he reflects. “We’ll probably never see anything like it again. That unity. That togetherness. We were all willing to fight, whether it was in battle or whether it was at home on the swing shift working all night.”
Has anyone noticed that, in the three years since the US homeland suffered its worst attack in history, Hollywood has not produced one single film that advocates the American side in the War On Islamic Fascism?
