Lee Greenwood isn't that bad. But then again, I don't own any of his albums.

Regards, Ivan

Exquisitely uninformed. Hank Jr. doesn't sing 'All My Exes Live in Texas", George Strait does.

Actually, all of this has done me a favor. As more and more of the better known artists get on my nerves, I have become pregressively more adventurous in my tastes, which now tend toward artists little known enough that no one bothers to interview them.

Of course I avoid reading interviews now days, I really don't want to know.

What? No reference to Toby Keith's lyric

"We'll stick a boot up your a$$- It's the American way!

And how about all the "artists" that the lefty's wish would sit down and shut up...a la Streisand --and let's see Yoko Ono electrify the base.

I understand Yoko has a new release in honor of the "French looking Candidate

Interesting - and timely - anecdote: I was on my way home yesterday, and had the radio tuned to The Kimmer Show on WGST-AM in Atlanta. Pete 'Snake' Davis was filling in for Kimmer, and he and Wayne 'No Offense' opened up a can of worms when Snake made an offhanded remark that Keith Moon was the greatest drummer that ever played (and jazz sucked). The rest of the show revolved around the 'who's the best' topic. Well, one caller was none other than Bryan Holmes, the drummer for the 80's band, The Producers ('What's She Got?'). It turns out that Holmes was a die-hard conservative, which prompted Snake to ask him why the hell so many of these people were such flaming liberals. Holmes couldn't be chided into naming names, but he told Snake and Wayne how widespread conservatives are in the music business. I suppose that one arm of the entertainment industry is the same as another - liberals hold the purse strings, and conservatives have to closet themselves if they want a contract. ZZ Top and Ted Nugent are just the visible Tom Sellecks and Charlton Hestons of their genre, but the vast conservative underground is there.

At every show, when Bruce Springsteen sang "My Hometown," he talked about the work those groups were doing and urged his huge audience to help out. He always closed with his own communitarian creed, "Nobody wins unless everybody wins."

Mr Greenwood, mercifully unfamiliar to almost anyone outside the US, is famous for having written God Bless the USA, comfortably the worst song ever inflicted on an innocent audience.

I still say anything released by Jean-Paul Jarre or the Pet Shop Boys is worse. Sheesh!

Who writes this stuff? "All My Exes Live in Texas" was George Strait. And, isn't Hank Williams Jr. dead now? I'm pretty sure Waylon Jennings is.

such icons of popular music as REM, the Dixie Chicks, Dave Matthews and John Mellencamp.

Ech. They're not "icons" to me. I own precisely ONE album by any of these artists (REM's "Automatic for the People" - okay, what can I say, I was young and stupid... and in college...) and that's an album I only drag out when I want people to leave me alone. I know that the last track on that album, "Find the River" is extremely effective in clearing a room...
