Item description for Food For the Masses: Michael Franti-Portraits and Lyrics by Wonder Knack Michael Franti...

Lyrics from Michael Franti's song, Bomb the World , written in the aftermath of September 11th, have found their way onto protest signs and T-shirts all over the world. "You can bomb the world to pieces, but you can't bomb it into peace."
Michael Franti's song--poems evolved from youthful rage to a thoughtful, soulful voice for social justice and peace. Franti's early '90s work with Spearhead dove headfirst into the darkness, mixing up Curtis Mayfield and Bob Marley, Gil Scott-Heron and Scarface. By 1999, he retreated from the major label treadmill to re-center his music and politics, and returned the following year as an organizer and cultural worker. As an activist, he raised his voice against the death penalty, media monopolization, and globalization.
Stay Human, released in 2001, was a statement on justice and survival as well as on the political, social and human faces of incarceration. His "Power to the Peaceful" annual event in San Francisco is a beacon for more than 50,000 attendees. In both popular music and social activism, Franti has never been more relevant or influential. He is also the director and producer of the award-winning documentary, I Know I'm Not Alone.

Reviews - What do customers think about Food For the Masses: Michael Franti-Portraits and Lyrics?

I love Michael Franti  Apr 5, 2008
If you love Michael Franti you'll love this book. It has tons of pictures from touring early on when he was playing bass with the beatnigs to right before he came out with the yell fire album. It has all the lyrics to mostly everything he has done,(except for some imports)then it comes with a dvd of some live shows. You will love this book as I do because there isn't very much reading to do Food For the Masses: Michael Franti-Portraits and Lyrics
Great Franti Addition   Mar 13, 2007
For Franti fans wanting a good way coffee table book or postable lyric for their home, office, car, or anywhere this is a good buy. While the dvd footage of shows isn't the best for die-hard fans, its pretty good. I'd recommend going to a show for a good time, not necessarily watching the dvd to get a good feel for franti and spearhead. Good images into their life, and great showings of sometimes how songs can be scribbled up or even written on napkins.
Franti Lovers Rejoice  Jan 19, 2007
This is a realy great book with copies of original handwritten lyrics, excellent photos, and a CD/DVD included. Definitely suggest this to anyone who enjoys Michael!
Food For Masses Review  Jan 15, 2007
This book made any excellent present and is a must for any Spearhead fan. The pictures and info are very informative and the live DVD a real bonus.
every flower's gotta right to be bloomin'  Jan 10, 2007
If you are lucky enought to be or becoming a Michael Franti fan, this book celebrates his poetic muse. The words that come through him stand on their own as works of art. As Michael says, "every single soul is a poem written on the back of God's hand".
