Choose One: Eric Clapton, Green Day, Sinatra, The B-52s . . .

One of you lucky people is going to receive something wonderful. But first we have to decide what that is.

Due to the kindness and generosity of Howie Klein, an avid Grayson supporter will get ONE of the following items:

1 - A Green Day guitar autographed by all 3 members of the band – a blue Squier Stratocaster.

2 – The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) Platinum Award to Eric Clapton and B.B. King for “Riding With the King.”

3 – The RIAA’s Platinum Award to Frank Sinatra for “The Very Good Years.” This plaque hung in the office of Reprise Records, the company that Sinatra started.

4 - The RIAA’s Multi-Platinum Award to the B-52’s for “Cosmic Thing.”

5 – A rare, framed, numbered art print by famed rock artist Rick Griffin for the Cult's "Wildflower" song, released in 1987. Griffin and all of the band members signed the print.

Howie Klein was the President of Reprise Records for twelve years. Howie Klein is a well-known free speech advocate, a renowned progressive blogger (Down With Tyranny!), and a leader of the Blue America PAC, which has raised more than three million dollars for progressive candidates. Also, a friend.

So here is how this works. First, we have set up a page where you can vote on the item: Green Day, Clapton/King, Sinatra, B-52s or Griffin. Second, anyone who makes a contribution this week on a special webpage that we have set up, called “I Wanna Rock and Roll” (tip of the hat to the band Kiss) will be eligible to receive the item we all choose. (As will anyone who sends an e-mail to rockandroll@graysonforcongress.com.) Void where prohibited, blah, blah, blah.

OK, so:

(1) Vote: Green Day, Clapton/King, Sinatra, B-52s or Griffin.

(2) If you want, make a contribution at the “I Wanna Rock and Roll” webpage.

One person will win the item -- once we know what that is. Which we will find out after you all vote.

Got it? Good. Because I’m really curious to know what kind of music you like, and this is one way to find out. So get to it.

Courage,

1. The B-52s record would be poetic justice

because I saw one of the female singers on TV last year spouting teabagger crap. That something she was a part of helped elect Alan Grayson back to Congress would be sweet irony!
