Alice Cooper on politics (or not)
Alice Cooper is blasting other rock stars who are planning to perform “benefits” in order to oust GW. Folks like Bruce Springsteen, John Mellencamp and R.E.M are committing “…treason against Rock and Roll because Rock and Roll is the antithesis of politics.”
I love this quote…
“If you’re listening to a rock star in order to get your information on who to vote for, you’re a bigger moron than they are. Why are we rock stars? Because we’re morons. We sleep all day, we play music at night and very rarely do we sit around reading the Washington Journal.”
Alice is still cool, and suprisingly, relevant even today. On the other hand, the bands mentioned earlier, well, aren’t.
