Not that this was news exactly.
TOM PETTY THINKS GEORGE W. BUSH IS HEADED FOR HELL
"The war in Iraq is shameful. Whether you're pro or con Bush, you've got to admit it: The guy lied. And he continues to do so. I can't understand why he's just not run out on a rail. To send somebody's kids off and have them killed for no good reason-- he's going to have his day in hell for that. I wouldn't want that karma. When you kill somebody's little sister with a missile, he's going to hate you forever. And the next generation will hate you even more."
Of all the PowerPop musicians I've met, they're pretty much all liberals. That's probably true of the vast majority of musicians generally--or they see themselves as apolitical, but hold liberal views on most issues. Sorry, NRO.
