Comments: Bonnie Raitt joins the "Bash Bush" bandwagon

They're dropping like flies form my book. These people should keep their opinions to themselves to appeal to a wider audience, because their rants color and ruin their performances for me, whether dramatic or lyrical.

These people may be very talented - but, business persons, they are not. Too bad for them.

Yes you are famous....

Perhaps you have a little intelligence...

No, you are not a walking PSA....

Let her say what she wants. It's essentially noise as long as she's talking to Swedes. It's amazing how courageous people are when there's no chance of consequences.

Has anyone heard from the Dixie Chicks after it became clear that record buyers and radio stations would exercise a little freedom of their own?

After selling 6 million+ of their first three albums, the Dixie Chicks "Top of the World Live" CD only went gold (500,000). Usually, live albums don't sell too well, but the Chicks were one of the top 3 acts in country music at the time (heck, Garth sold over 3 million of his live CD). They are now on what they call 'maternity' leave and plan to make a new album in 2005. But I don't think they have a chance in country anymore. Of the 15 or so country stations in the Kansas City area, I've only heard one station play them, albeit sporadically, since their 'coming out'. And I don't see a fiddle and banjo competing with Usher anytime soon. :)

But besides the Chicks, have any of these moronic musicians been big in the past ten years? Bonnie Raitt, Linda Rondstat, John Mellencamp, Emmylou Harris, Steve Earle? Lord, take me back to the '80s! Any publicity is better than none, I guess.
