Cat Stevens

March 10, 2018
 by Paul McGowan

Steven Georgiou played the British cafe circuit until suffering a near-death experience which changed his life and caused him to reinvent himself into the artist we know as Cat Stevens—one of the most influential musicians in modern history. As well as his music, his life has been a real adventure in terms of his search for its meaning.

On this edition of Ohm’s Law, we go back in time, to 1972 and spend time with one of the legends in music’s history.

  1. I would like to understand how Islam can condemn the making of music, and how Steven was able to turn his back on such a wonderful god-given gift.

    Thank you for posting your interview, Paul.

    1. Islam has nothing against music , just look at Chechen culture, music and dancing is in their blood (watch you tube video’s -unfortunately it is Saudi Culture, a very backward bedouin culture that even their future to be King is trying to change ! Saudi cuture has some issues so please do not equate it with Islam. Yusuf Islam still sings ! I still have wonderful memories of him when he was known as Cat Stevens and still enjoy his music thanks for sharing Paul !
