Speaking of “Peace Train,” a brief interview with Yusuf appears in the March/April 2008 issue of AARP Magazine, where he talks about recently updating the lyrics to his classic song.
“I rewrote those lyrically recently,” says Yusuf 60, at home in London. “It goes: ‘How long has this peace train been gone?…. how long must this world wait for you?”
AARP puts most of their print content online, but unfortunately this article has yet to make it online. Fortunately, Christine at the Majicat Message Board has transcribed it right here. Thank you Christine!
