Although Stewart recorded "Nostradamus" nearly three decades before September 11, he appears to have been taken in by other spurious claims, such as references to the rise of Hitler and the Kennedy assassination. That being said, music is art not science, and this epic song, which runs to nearly 10 minutes, is one of his masterpieces. Its lengthy acoustic guitar solo is played with such intensity that it is difficult to credit that it really is only one instrument. When he played this live, unaccompanied, Stewart would showcase his fretboard wizardry to the full.
