Heh heh ... I suppose if you an afford to own a Martin, it could be argued that you aren't really part of "The 99%" ... Possibly, this thread is a better candidate for the "Protest Songs Revisited" chat forum ;-)

Yawn...more rich guys trying to stir up the noodniks!  Unfortunately, protests in America ain't what they used to be. My humble prediction; absolutely no policy will be affected by these wasted months. 

OK guys, let fly!

Here, here!  Thanks for speaking up.

I did see the photos of Crosby and Nash at the OWS rally. These two heroes of social and environmental causes along with many others from that era (Jackson Browne, N. Young, B. Springsteen, J. Mellencamp, J. Mitchell, C. King, to name a few), would be expected to show up at such an important and hopefully historical protest. They and their music have been at the forefront of change since the '60s and I suspect it will be for some time to come. I can only hope that I can add to that with the socially conscious songs that I continue to write today and that maybe some more of today's younger generation of musicians can continue to carry the flag of music and art's contribution to awareness of the issues that we face. They are out there, but they are hard to hear over the "noise".  Nice to see they showed up with the Martins but it wouldn't have mattered if they showed up with a couple of junkers.....they showed up!

Guy, I just went to the site with the three pictures and those two protesters holding the Martins you are refferring to are none other than two of my musical heros, David Crosby and Graham Nash of C,S,N & sometimes Y!!!  Very cool, but then if two Martins players are going to show up at a protest, I would expect it to be them!  Thanks so much for the link!!!  Edwawrd

@Michael  I stand corrected, two Martin guitars were carried to the site by their owners (though I have no proof that they actually owned those specific guitars).

With any due respect, I don't believe "Martin guitars have joined the protest" is accurate or at the very least - misleading. I have not seen anything from Martin regarding their support of the mobs. I suspect if it was true there would be a lot of people no longer supporting Martin.

Or did you mean there have been people photographed at the mobs who were playing Martin guitars?

@ Edward, here's a link to three pictures that nicely show off the guitars and the players.  Enjoy.
