PRESIDENT Bush takes it on the chin in the new Rolling Stones tune "Sweet Neo Con." In the most political song from their upcoming "A Bigger Bang" album, Mick Jagger sings: "You call yourself a Christian, I call you a hypocrite/ You call yourself a patriot. Well, I think your are full of [bleep]!" Jagger tells Newsweek he's not sweating possible repercussions. "I think [Keith Richards] is a bit worried because he lives in the U.S.," crows the English rocker. "But I don't."

You needed to write yourself a note?
(Denny Crane: "Sometimes you can only look for answers from God and failing that... and Fox News".)
Looks like the 60's children never grew up.
Sweet Neo Con
The biggest surprise. We thought Mick was an old Thatcherite. But here he
sticks it to Bush and co right between the eyes. ''You say you are a Christian , I think you are a hypocrite,'' he spits in the opening line to a tune a little like Dylan's "Masters Of War", while the chorus sneers, ''How come you're so wrong, my sweet neo-con.'' A Virgin spokeswoman in the US has already put out a panicky statement denying it's about Bush or anyone on the White House (can't risk upsetting Clear Channel, can we?). But if you believe that, you'll believe anything.
Promoting heroin use did wonders for your fan base.
When are you going to apologize for the lives your heroin advocacy took ?
Of all the lists in the world, the list of moronic entertainers has to be the longest. Talk about "This is your brain on drugs."
I had to check and make sure this wasn't the Onion.
...by the artists "formerly" known as the world's greatest rock 'n' roll band.
The Rolling Stones? Uh, are they still alive? How old is Mick, 75? Keith Richards looks like he's somewhere in his 80's.
I doubt it. Now if he had a religious conversion and came out as a pro-life Christian, then he should be worried about some wacko, in-your-face liberal harassing him.
Their last #1 hit was in 1979. A few minor hits in the 80's. Who cares about them anymore? I don't.
Musicians Bush bashing?
That is so last year...
You call yourself a rocker, I call you a senior citizen.
In his 80s?? Keith Richard looked like he was in his 80s 40 years ago. He looks like one of those old people from the Caucusus Mountains in the yogurt commercials now, only they look a lot healthier.
>>Keith Richards looks like he's somewhere in his 80's.
Keith Richards looked like death warmed over in the early 80s, when I saw him from 10' away at a New Barbarians show date.
