Patti Smith's - People Have The Power

Remember all the music stars that went out on the Concert For Change tour in the fall of 2004 to support the moderate Democratic candidate John Kerry for President against the extremely right wing George Bush? Seems like a lifetime ago with George Bush now below 30% in opinion polls (you have to wonder who these people are that still support him, besides Ted Nugent I mean) and another couple of years to go while he ruins our country and makes us even more of a pariah in the world. R.E.M., Bruce Springsteen, Babyface, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews, Dixie Chicks, John Fogerty, Eddie Vedder, Jackson Browne, James Taylor and Bonnie Raitt all show up for the big finale to sing the Patti Smith tune People Have The Power. Part of the fun is to see who has to look at the monitor to sing the lyrics.

I'll bet the backstage party was pretty good.
