My friend Daisann and Long Hair (Leung Kwok Hung) went up the stage to sing Bob Dylan’s song, “The Times they are a’Changing“. Here is a link to Daisann’s insightful blog entry “The Line is Drawn”. Here is an excerpt,
“Wednesday night, 6:30pm, the phone rings: it’s Long Hair. “Can you play guitar for me at the rally tonight? I want to sing Bob Dylan’s song, “The Times they are a’Changing”.
My first reaction: Uh oh. Leung Kwok Hung loves music, loves Bob Dylan and loves to sing. But keeping him in rhythm and in tune is like trying to steer a sailboat through a typhoon.
“I have the lyrics already!” he urges. “Come down to Chater Garden, bring your guitar, okay?””
I have been trying to track down a YouTube clips of the performance without success until this morning. My friend is humble in talking about her performance. Let me put it this way, the sound system/the camera’s mic magically turns Daisann & Long Hair’s performance into something even Bob Dylan can’t do a better job. (smile)
On a more serious note, I deeply admire their and others’ willingness to standup and fight for Hong Kong.
