Don't know if any of you have been following this, but this article sums up the whole Pearl Jam/anti-Bush "controversy" of earlier this week.

quote:
On the defensive for some antiwar remarks at the opening show of their first North American tour in nearly three years, the grunge rockers are rejecting as media hype a report that there was a mass walkout by upset fans after lead singer Eddie Vedder impaled a mask of President Bush on a microphone stand during the encore.

"There were close to 12,000 people at the April 1 Denver show. It's possible two dozen left during the encore, but it was not noticeable amongst the 11,976 who were loudly applauding and enjoying the evening's music," the band said in a statement. "It just made a better headline to report otherwise."

Is Pearl Jam the next Dixie Chicks?

Umm. No. Not in any conceivable way.
