Whatever God you subscribe to, whatever your beliefs, killing in the name of that God brings ignorance and intolerance to a new height.
“”Holy War” is a song about intolerance and a prayer for peace. It’s been going on for centuries now, from the Crusades to the present, people using their faith to justify doing horrible things to each other. I think we can do better than this. It doesn't matter what religion or faith you are or what country you live in. Love and compassion is the better path." Willie told Alternate Root TV.
Willie and bass player extraordinaire, Johnny Pisano stopped by the Alternate Root TV to record a show that will air in March prior to Willie's appearance at the legendary Passim in Boston on March 9 . This is an exclusive look and listen to the song which appears on the upcoming album American Ride. I've heard it, it's among the best of the year so far. Another exclusive from The Alternate Root. Willie Nile is an American treasure and one of the most gifted songwriters out there.
