    Stevie is blind to the facts of the case.

    You might say that Stevie Wonder is legally blind. He's unable to perceive the world through the sense of vision. If you get my drift.

    Good - maybe some other unreasonable clowns will boycott the great state of Florida too.

    Has anyone noticed how big that guy is now? I saw him on some TV event recently and didn't even recognize him.

    That's too bad. In Florida, you can really see the secret life of plants.

    Man politics aside if you don't like Stevie Wonder's music you don't have a soul.

    <-- soulless.

    I'd prefer something more mo-townish, Stevie is just too much pop for me.

    I'm not that familiar with his catalogue, or maybe I'm not that familiar with true motown in general, but Stevie's music isn't what I have in mind. The earlier stuff - The Temptations, The Four Tops, Gladyst Knight - that's more of what I was thinking.

    I agree, but the sad thing is this hurts mainly lower income workers that work as ushers, concessions, and ticket takers. I'm not a big concert goer, but if other artists want to follow suit, go for it.

    In fact, he may be the most loyal motown artist in history.

    I think he was still "Little Stevie Wonder" during that era (Finger Tips (part 2) was a hit for him in '63 at age 13), and his sound conformed to the "Motown sound" of the 60s. He was with Motown through the 70s and beyond, after some of those artists left or changed too. Music in general evolved. His "classic" era is more 70s.

    Perhaps you'd prefer Little Stevie Wonder, the 12 year old Tamla artist?
