Crap. Now I’ll have to burn all my guitars and assorted accessories now that I know the world famous kite surfer is also an unaccomplished muscian. In addition to being a VN hero with a purple heart. No, a REAL purple heart bordering on black.

Muslims who are considered extremist by the Taliban are tearing through Iraq taking heads, Russia is pointing its ‘boom-stick’ at the Ukraine, Guatemala and Honduras, we are told, are so dangerous for children and other things that our federal Border Patrol agents are now nannies, Israel and every Arab in the world are fixin’ fer nyoocular combat, toe-toe-toe, the president is either playing pool/golf/’mens club’, drinking beer or busy begging for money-—but folks, we’ve got a real treat for you tonight! The Secretary of State, of the United States of America, with his particular musical stylings, to wit, “The House Of The Rising Son”.

Is he still claiming to be from "Oslo"?

"John Kerry, electric bass, is a resident of Oslo, Norway, and the producer of a pulsating rhythm that lends tremendous force to all his numbers." - From the liner notes to the Electras' album.
