I'm blacklisted, says John Adams

In an interview for BBC Radio 3's Music Matters and reported in the Guardian newspaper, composer John Adams said he was now 'blacklisted' by the US authorities and regularly grilled by airpot authorities when he travels.

"You know, I'm on a homeland security list, probably because of having written The Death of Klinghoffer, so I'm perfectly aware that I, like many artists and many thoughtful people in the country, am being followed." Adams said.
