Legendary songwriter and performer Yusuf / Cat Stevens joins A Late Show for this performance of “Wild World” off his incredibly unique new album “Tea For The Tillerman 2.” #Colbert #Yusuf #CatStevens
What a memory. I would love to hear Peace Train
thought the dude was dead, glad he’s not he crushed this live here, kudos
Sick outfit cat
This disgusting old hypocrite is on the record as saying apostates should be killed . Gross old fake hippy that believes thought crimes should be a death sentence .
Just FYI to everyone in the comments, Cat has been back making music since 2006 and has released a few albums since then and has also done a number of world tours as well 😊.
Wow! What a wonderful reimagination of a golden classic 💕👍 One of my all time favourites! Thank you Yusuf and band and thank you Stephen for sharing this beautiful treat. What a perfect bedtime song as I hit the hay! Sending you my prayers from Down Under 🇦🇺
That was not at all a version I enjoyed.
At first I thought this was Chevy Chase in Community
Love this version as much as I did the original. Many memories in his music. His voice has not weakened nor his artristy. I am happy to see him again.
Absolutely amazing how good he still sounds.
Awwww so good! Hi from your biggest Aussie fan!
He’s Yusuf as a Muslim but Cat Stevens when he wants more money.
Just wanna remind everyone why he’s been banned from playing in the United States. He threatened to murder Salman Rushdie on national television. People actually had to die, friend’s of Rushdie were murdered. All because Rushdie wrote a book.
I love Stephen Colbert, but I am very disappointed in him for inviting a man who called for the murder of Salman Rushdie onto his show. Cat Stephens died a long time ago. Only the intolerant and fanatical Yusuf Islam remains. He Never apologized for the multiple times he called for Salman Rushdie’s murder after Rushdie wrote the book “The Satanic Verses” way back in the 1980s. Salman Rushdie had to go into hiding for over ten years when the murderous Ayatollah Khomeni called for his execution, and Cat Stephens, now Yusuf Islam, was a cheer-leader for it. Stephens even went to college campuses and gave speeches to students, saying “the judgement is clear; Rushdie must die”. Nice peaceful statement to make to college students there, Stephens.
Here is a link to a short clip of Cat Stephens making this threat. It is part of a longer British broadcast in which religious violence and freedom of speech is discussed.
By the way, Stephens has gone to considerable trouble to attempt to hunt down and eliminate this proof of his call for murder, which proves his hypocrisy. If he was proud of his original statement of calling for the murder of Salman Rushdie for writing a book, then he should let the video evidence stay. If he isn’t proud of it, then he should apologize to Salman Rushdie after all these years. But like a typical religious fanatic, he is a complete hypocrite.
did he ever apologise for supporting the fatwa against Salman Rushdie ?
!! Had to read the video title twice to make sure I got it right the first time. Best performance on the show for me in a while.
