The Marshall Tucker Band is going to be with romney's campaign

It's hilarious because they had a song called "Mr President" that came down on Reagan in 1982.
I hope they use it now and history catches up. Romney looks foolish for having them there in the first place, seeing supporters cheering to a song that originally bashed St. Reagan would be an inspiring irony.

I was watching the livestream when that happened at a Michele Bachmann campaign event two years ago, and I just about fell off my chair! The lyrics fit Romney to a T--and not in a good way.

3. The strangest people come out for Rmoney

I never would have thought Clint Eastwood would make himself look so ridiculous and stupid for Rmoney. It totally surprised me.

Then I saw Meatloaf drooling all over Rmoney the other day. I was seriously surprised.

I thought both men were smarter than what they appeared to be. Too bad these once interesting characters turned out to be nothing more than easily manipulated fools.

15. Eastwood Is A Lifetime Rushpublican/Libertarian...

...No surprise he came out for his fellow million/billionaire buddy. I think he showed up at the convention since he felt "burned" appearing in the Chrysler superbowl ad that many felt was a pro-Obama ad. He had to show his true colors.

Meatloaf is on Trump's payroll...the man who brought him out of the obscurity he truly belongs in. Smart means nothing when you're self-centered and arrogant...a trait both have.

Cheers...

Off to wikipedia. Ah, so it seems they are a washed up Southern Rock band (not one of my fortes), with a single original member left and a highest-peaking single at 14 back in 1977. I no longer feel bad for not knowing who they were.

87. Actually the lyrics are clever. It contains all the cliches

from country and pop songs that justify being a rambler and unfaithful lover, but ultimately all he can do to justify his behavior is say "heard it in a love song, can't be wrong." But of course it can be wrong, which the song itself proves. It's pretty meta for a country rock song. This goes over most people's heads, I guess.

Toy Caldwell, who wrote the song, is long dead. I don't know what his politics were but he was a two-tour Vietnam vet and the band, as the OP points out, did do Randy Newman's "Mr. President (Take Pity on the Working Man)" on a 1982 album, which was written to criticize Richard Nixon and would have been read as criticism of Ronald Reagan then. Clearly the only remaining original member, Doug Gray, the vocalist, is now a bone-headed Rethug.

But as I pointed out earlier, they're all pretty much dead. It's that band in name and vocalist only. Toy Caldwell, who died in 1993 tragically at 45 was the main songwriter.

Every Republican working in the arts/entertainment industry tend to always be washed up performers who want to cash in on politics and help the Republicans. The Republican candidate thinks he's being "hip" and in touch with people when in reality it's the Democratic party that has the artists of yesteryears, today, and tomorrow.

I hope not, it's kinda weird, he's a committed Liberal but he has/had a racist symbol as a backdrop.
Maybe it's because he's from FL where racism was rampant when he was growing up and for some strange reason, he uses it.

29. Nope, the "Big" guy was with Rich when the Meatloaf debacle happened.

At this point, I'm sure money and exposure is more important than politics for these guys--their best days were about 10 years ago, along with Gretchen Wilson.

41. Somehow my rich, asshole brother-in-law became good friends of one of those two

Can't remember if it was "Big" or "Rich" because I didn't care, but if he was friends with my right wing tool of a brother in law he had to be a right wing tool himself.

26. That's a shame. I still love "Take the Highway" and

"Can't You See"--classics.

33. To me it doesn't really matter, because this is nowhere near

the original band anyway (same as with Lynyrd Skynyrd)--it shouldn't ruin the good stuff they did 40 years ago.

32. I've always liked the Marshall Tucker Band

 

the live version of 24 Hours at a Time kicks ass.

34. Yeah--I'm not going to retroactively declare them talentless

and say I never liked them because some surviving member in his 60's or 70's wants to get exposure and gigs this way.

37. The modern version of the band

 

is nowhere near what the original band was, w/o Toy, it's just not the same.

63. Gold in them hills

 

and it's waitin' for me there.
I've always loved southern rock and country rock.
One of my favorite southern rock female singers is Bonnie Raitt, I can listen to Thing Called Love every day and not get tired of it.

of southern rock and blues. She is a very talented singer/guitarist.

If there was enough time left I'm sure he'd locate The Bay City Rollers.

68. a good band in the 70s

They were a good band in the '70s...in some ways a poor man's Allman Brothers. Some fine albums...A New Life, Where We All Belong, Marshall Tucker Band, Searchin' For a Rainbow, and Long Hard Ride were very good. After the Caldwell brothers died (especially Toy Caldwell) they began to suck...Doug Gray must be a wingnut.
