John Sinclair (born October 2, 1941) is an American poet, writer, and political activist from Flint, Michigan. Sinclair's defining style is jazz poetry, and he has released most of his works in audio formats. Most of his pieces include musical accompaniment, usually by a varying group of collaborators dubbed Blues Scholars.
The 1971 Sinclair Freedom Rally was John’s first gig as a solo headliner, one of only two shows he’d ever headline. The response to John’s support for marijuana activism by the Nixon administration was abject terror. This specific act of 1971 pro-pot activism, added to John’s overall anti-war stance and the fear that he could easily rally America’s for all kinds of trouble, led directly to a 4-year campaign by the FBI to have John deported, starting in early 1972.
John Sinclair (born October 2,1941 in Flint, Michigan), was a Detroit poet, one-time manager of the band MC5, and leader of the White Panther Party from November 1968 to July 1969. He was jailed in 1969 after selling two joints of marijuana to undercover narcotics officers. His case received international attention when on December 10,1971, John Lennon and Yoko Ono headlined the "Free John Now Rally" in front of 15-20,000 people at Crisler Arena in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The Ten For Two features John Lennon at his most polemic. The speakers in the rally, Father James Groppi, Bobby Seale and Jerry Rubin, are quite extreme and make some inflammatory statements (Groppi comparing Nixon to Hitler is a bit much to take). The music is a mixed bag too. It's obvious Allan Gingsberg can't sing, and I'm not sure about some of the minor acts like The Up either.
