Bruce Springsteen responding to Ted Koppel on Nightline last night when he asked, “Who the hell is Bruce Springsteen to tell people how to vote?”
It’s an interesting question that seems to only be asked of musicians and artists…. If you’re a lobbyist in Washington, you’re a business guy. Well, shut up and do business. Stay out of public policy, you know. …Artists write, and sing, and think, and this is how we get to put our two cents in, and we do it right in front of people, not in secret meetings behind closed doors. We let people know what we think.
