Three Chords and a Longing for the Truth

A discussion of rock and roll and the desire for the infinite with John WATERS, Irish journalist, writer and music critic

Presented by Crossroads Cultural Center in collaboration with the University of St. Thomas Office of Academic Affairs

“Is it possible that a song played on the radio is able to convey, in time and space, the desire of the human being for ‘something beyond’? Can the artist transmit his or her own desire to the heart of another person, the listener? How is it possible? Some people say that these are stupid questions. After all, it's only rock 'n' roll. But is a thing ‘only’ what appears to be?”

John Waters, an Irish journalist, writer and music critic, will respond to these questions and more during this event.
