HCTF premiere - Al Rose: "Shooting Straight" video

Chicago rocker Al Rose has made a video for his new single, Shooting Straight, using footage from the classic Popeye cartoons. He is serious that telling lies is being taken seriously. Fake news has replaced the facts - "Loaded dice and crooked looks are pissing on the burning bush" and "Shooting straight no longer is an option in this world".

With his guitar as a weapon Rose hopes to make a difference, but he might be preaching to the converted, now that a dialogue between different opinions has become next to impossible, with people being confined in their own bubble of shared beliefs.

Shooting Straight is a track from his forthcoming album Again The Beginner, due for release on July 8th. It is available for preorder here.
