Singer David Gray has warned that US interrogators playing loud music as a form of torture - including his own song Babylon - is no laughing matter.
"Only the novelty aspect of this story gets it noticed... Guantanamo greatest hits," he said."What we're talking about here is people in a darkened room, physically inhibited by handcuffs, bags over their heads and music blaring at them.
