Isaac Hayes | Music | Interview | The A.V. Club

The Onion interviews Isaac Hayes, and he comes across as a cool, fun dude – basically, exactly how you’d expect him to.

AVC: Like Gaye, you didn’t shy away from political material. Do you think the R&B of today is as engaged politically as your generation was?

IH: I don’t know. Kanye West said some things about Bush. [Laughs.] I think the kids today need to hear more about morals and values. Somebody needs to put a check on them. If people would write songs that would bring their attention to a better way of life and a better way of living, maybe we’d see a change in our society. Because you have to have some responsibility. And these artists, with all the money they’re making, they should have some responsibility to remind their listeners, these young people, about how they should live and what they should do. Because it’s kind of chaotic now.
