ALL THE USUAL idiots have their BVDs in a bunch over Elton John’s playing at Rush Limbaugh’s wedding. Tryin’ t’ make some major political thing out of it. Some people have no sense of history.
Rush is a boomer. In case nobody remembers, Elton John was one of the major musical voices of the Baby Boom generation. He was a MAJOR big noise in the late ’60s and early ’70s. As big as the Beatles, as they said back then.
Also: Rush was a rock jock in his early years. He constantly refers back to his days spinning the hot wax under the name of Jeff Christie in Pittsburgh Pee-Yay. In case you didn’t know, Elton John is/was/has been a staple of Top 40 radio for over forty years now.
Not to mention Elton draws the chicks. Witness the whole Princess Di thing.
Makes perfect sense. Politics be damed. If I’d had the bucks, I’d have had Elton play at MY wedding. (And, yes, it WAS after we knew he was gay. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that.) I’m not THAT old.)
Some people need to get a life. Jayzus!
