5. God I love this man. I just read through "Songs" again
today. Best 50 bucks I ever spent. He's a true original, there aren't many who would change their entire song-writing style out of anger at being called the "new Dylan"; in order to better characterize and communicate with the people he wrote about in his songs.

I loved his statement for the Dixie Chicks on his website, that was so generous of him and much stronger than the statement quoted above, but Bruce is no idiot on how to get his message across to the people who need it most, and maybe he felt non-partisan was the way to go. I was pretty amazed by the hearings on the FCC ruling when, (was it Renshaw?), that manager, read that e-mail he got from one of the big-wigs at Clear Channel that said "Let Bruce say it and see what happens to him" referring to Bruce's statement in defense of the Dixie Chicks comments about Bush.
