British music legend Alan Parsons is doing a little more than playing two shows with his band this week in Israel. Two day before performing in Haifa Thursday night, Parsons joined his band, who flew in a day early to attend the bar mitzva of Tal Erez, the son of the group’s bass player, Israeli- born Guy Erez.

The bar mitzva took place at the Yemin Moshe Synagogue in Jerusalem. Although Parsons has led his group on numerous foreign tours, it was the first time he had ever brought them to a bar mitzva. They will next appear on Saturday night in Tel Aviv’s Menora Mivtachim Arena.

Parsons, who has worked with The Beatles and Pink Floyd, and led The Alan Parsons Project, has engaged in a longstanding feud with ex-Floyd member Roger Waters over his repeated performances in Israel.

“We had a little bit of conflict going on over the Internet. Roger appealed very strongly to me to decline my invitation to come to Israel, and I declined his request,” Parsons told The Jerusalem Post last month. “I’m a great believer that music and politics shouldn’t mix.”
