Great article in the Boston Phoenix on Freemasonry and the “all-seeing eye of rock and roll.”
Below are just a few of the quotes
The Masons of Amicable Lodge have tattoos curling out from under their button-down shirts. They wear giant rings and waist aprons that look like oversize satin envelopes. They wear ties and medals and amulets. They carry staffs. Each month, they gather to practice secret rituals in Porter Square.
“A lot of people become involved in music because they’re looking for something higher — or to get girls, which is something higher,”…”It’s looking for that thing that’s bigger than you — the first time you hear the Ramones on the radio, it’s that spiritual thing.”
[Free]Masonry fills that need
“We’re born, get old, and die, but the rituals remain the same. It’s a time machine. It’s a connection to eternity.”
I really like that analogy, its a great perspective.
