Never been a huge Pearl Jam fan, I don't know exactly know why, they're very good and Eddie Vedder and I are on the same page about many things, but who knows.
I read a Rolling Stone interview with him this morning and I have to say however, that his stock went up with me. He seems very grounded, bright and down to earth, accepting his celebrity without succumbing to it.
Seems like a really cool guy.
A couple of local papers are going to interview me prior to my bands reunion show...you know, local interest stuff and I imagine an opportunity will arise for me to speak on how I feel about what's currently going on because I'm fairly well known to be outspoken.
This reunion show is looking like a sellout, and the boys in the band have asked me to shut up about politics or GWB so people won't give us the Dixie Chicks treatment. On a smaller level of course
I won't volunteer but if it comes up, I have to speak my mind. Is that a screw up? I realize no one cares what some local musician says, but when asked, I have to speak up or who am I?
