A note from Roger:
” Last night I watched the 2013 documentary film “The Man Who Saved The World” The man’s name is Stanislav Petrov. The year before Stanislav saved the World In the year 1982 I wrote a song “The Gunner’s Dream”,
It’s weird to think that had Stanislav not been In the right place at the right time None of us would be alive No one under the age of 37 Would have have been born at all.
It is acknowledged by all but the cretins amongst us That nuclear arms have no value It is also acknowledged that They are a ticking bomb And we ignore them at our peril Accidents happen The Stanislavs of this world are a rare breed.
We’ve been extraordinarily lucky. If I ruled the world, I would heed the words of the wise I would get rid of nuclear weapons First thing tomorrow morning.
On Dr. King’s name day. Of course no-one can rule the world The world cannot be ruled It can only be loved and respected and shared.
If we’re still here in the morning So here is a new recording and video of “The Gunner’s Dream” As a gift from me and my lovely band and our friends to you,
With our love R.“
