Billy Gibbons on Limbaugh...

Ok, so I'm heading for lunch, hop in the car, hit the radio...it's the local AM station, but because it's noon, it's Rush Limbaugh. I'm just about the hit the CD button for "Eat a Peach," when Limbaugh starts recounting an email he received last night--from the Reverend! Seems Billy is a dittohead and is sending Limbaugh some specially mastered digital selections from the new album to be used as bumper music for the show. Also turns out that Limbaugh is somewhat of a ZZTop fan--already uses some tunes at various times of the year. Never really thought about Billy's political orientation before, but I guess this cements it. Of course, I bought that crap back in the '70's about the peso pick, too....2

I can't really say that I'm disappointed with his views...

How were the teasers? Do you think the album has a fresh sound?

BTW, I listened to Eat A Peach about four times today after a LOOOONNNNNNGGGGG hiatus form the Brothers. Damn I'm gald I gave it a spin!

Yeah, "...peach" is nice...I've had that, "Brothers and Sisters," "Layla," and the first three Jackson Browne cd's out a lot lately...IMO, David Lindley's tone on the JB cd's is extremely under rated...

David Lindley is the best - tasty and rippin'! I saw JB in the late 80's with David and El Rayo-X as the warm up band. The losers that came in late for JB have no clue of the greatness they missed.

I'm not a Limbaugh fan, but why are people suprised to learn a celebrity might have some conservative views? Heck, the guy's from TEXAS!

Rush L. is a right-wing radio talk show host. He's the Yin to Howard Sterns Yang... He's the Ted Nugent of AM radio...

John,

Rush L. is a radio host here in the U.S. I wouldn't say that he's bad so much as "ultra conservative." If you want to listen to a show about conspiracy theories, gov't criticism, and the whole white/black/man/woman thing, then Rush is perfect! LOL, it's really fun to listen to sometimes, but I tend to prefer Opie and Anthony. Those guys really push the limits of what can be aired. They actually got kicked out of Boston for pulling a prank about the mayor (of Boston) being dead. Needless to say he didn't think that was very funny. The mayor of good ol' B-Town has a LOT of political pull and eventually got them banned from the radio. O and A are back now AND broadcasting to a Boston affiliate. They're the total opposite side of the coin from Rush. spin

-my opinion only-

Rush is a racist f*ck. How 'bout this quote from the Rushster:

"The NAACP should have riot rehearsal. They should get a liquor store and practice robberies."

But don't take my word for it, read up on Rush on the Fairness in Media website.

I'm not an apologist for Rush... but I don't think that statement is racist. I don't agree with it, but it's obvious intent is to be inflammitory & is directed at a political organization, not a race of people.
"Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot" - Great book for any fans/enemies of R.L.

I Like Listening to him, I'm not a Leftist.

That quote could be taken about 17 different ways. Most likely, he was making fun of the NAACP, because they will defend to the death, anything that anyone black Does, no matter how bad or wrong it is.

Saying he's Racist, is just plain Ignorant. It's quite apparant you have never listened, but are just spewing the regular Leftist hate Lines.


Thanks for the info, I just gained a bit more respect for the Good Rev.

I'd rather talk about Lindley--holy cow, what fingers! Acoustic, electric, slide--some of the tastiest tones I've ever heard...I remember a GP interview, late '70's I think, with Jackson Browne talking about DL....said DL wouldn't even remove the pickguard from a strat cause he thought it might change the tone...said it was the wood, the pickups, and even the amount of dust under the guard that made the magic...I miss those sounds and those songs. Running on Empty started the downwards slide for me...JB was apparantly using a fair amount of coke during that time. If you listen closely to the end of "Cocaine", you can here BJ say, "I gotta do either more or less of that stuff", or something like that, to which Lindley replies, "I'll tell you...it takes a clear mind..." JB kind of laughs, then says, "It takes a clear mind to take it, or not to take it?" to which Lindley replies, "It takes a clear mind...to make it." Browne later talked about that as a wake up remark to him, that if he wanted to stick around in the business he needed to slow down the coke, which he apparantly did. Still, Hold Out (right title?) and Lawyers in Love just didn't have the lyrics or the sounds of the earlier albums..the guitarists were good, but they weren't Lindley...

Running On Empty really hooked me in on JB (I wore out 2-3 copies) but it was all the earlier stuff that was the best. Listen to the emotional wail in DL's solo in These Days, or the sadness in Late For The Sky, or the roadhouse romp in Road And The Sky...

Around the Lawyers In Love period JB screwed up bad: got rid of Lindley as guitarist/musical director, and quit writing actual songs (endless repetition of phrases).

I like a lot of the I'm Alive album - best non-Lindley band JB has had IMO.

I liked RonE, but not nearly as much as the first three...to me it was transitional--great guitar, great band, but the songs weren't quite as good, at least to me...I have a Bread And Roses double lp from '77, with JB and DL doing a duet on For Everyman...it's chilling, all of it--the vocals, JB's guitar, and DL's lead acoustic is incredible...

That's HERON. It's on the City of Algona seal. Before the lot behind my house was developed it was a big marsh, & these huge blue birds would come in to eat their fill of bullfrogs & mudpuppies.

Hey thanks I was just expressing my opinion, if your opinion is that I'm ignorant then I would submit that you don't know anything about me, or who I am. But you're also entitled to your opinion.

RL is a radical mouthpiece. Spews to incite, his views never could be practical to implement. He is about like a Jackson or Sharpton.

Howard Stearn is sick, and he gets big bucks to fuck with people. Its amazing. I can laugh with and at that cat, but don't make it a point to search for him on radio or tv.

not surprised I bet there are a lot more republicans in rock than you think....remember how BB king was fawning over lee atwater.

As an extreme example one of the guys from canned heat joined the KKK.

Rush , is he a real republican? .....he is a radio host who needed ratings so made a career out of being a conservitive

I'm reading Rush's book The way things ought to be right now. Its HILARIOUS ! Man if I was a liberal I'd be pissing venom spin Kinda hard to argue his facts, and thats what I think incites the liberal left so much.

RL is an Entertainer

Keep in mind, first & foremost, Limbaugh is an ENTERTAINER!!
He does most of what he does to get people to listen. Hardly any different that the stupid morning TV talk shows designed to inflame & titilate.

yeah I guess my reaction to him is a bit extreme, I have a father-in-law who is like Rush on acid.

Most people are smart enough to take him for (what you guys are saying) an "entertainer". I just get angry listening to him (yes I have actually listened to his show, I don't pass judgement on matters I do not have personal experience with). Listening to him vomit opinions on American Indians, nicotine and addiction, deforestation, and other inane concepts reminds me that people actually take him seriously and believe that crap. I get pissed at disinformation, if that's entertainment to other people then great for them.

I don't think it's really a matter of disinformation from the right or the left in most cases, just difference of opinion. For instance, on the issue of global warming I for one would not give up one iota of freedom to possibly save mother nature. First of all the science involved is akin to forecasting the weather with a longer time scale and a much less accurate overall picture of causation of temperature increase, if indeed it is really occuring or if it is even linked to human activity. Second, if there is a substantial impact upon global tempuratures, there is a natural system of checks and balances that will prevent mankind from destroying nature, too much environmental impact, nature bites back. Even if it were possible to do something, putting that much power over our lives in the hands of government is a recipe for disaster, power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutly. Now has anything I have said been empirically provable as disinformation? Or opinion?

So Billy Gibbons is actually the guitar player on all Jackson Browne recordings and Rush is playing the remastered clips on his tree hugging, liberal loving Rock and Roll Minstrel Hour Texas Blues radio show? That's Entertainment?!?!?

Well at least David Lindley IS a badass player with awesome tone.

Is saw Rush one time in the early eighties. I think it was the Moving Pictures tour. But I wasn't on acid. And I didn't realize that David Lindley played guitar for them! I always thought it was that Canadian guy that nobody knows exactly how to pronounce his name. Jackson Browne live IS killer, though. Fandango! is one of my all time favorite albums.

Interesting thread guys...

I'm tempted to really throw my 2 cents in here, this is very entertaining. But in the end, politics has become a bunch of banal drivel... I think we should all play more and enjoy every moment of life, because it could all be gone tomorrow.

I have really strong political opinions, but I think you get more done in "stealth mode" when it comes to politics... It's kind of like religion - everyone is entitled to internalize it in their own way - and that's usually better kept a private thing, unless you really live to spread your own gospel.

You either choose to be an activist (on either side of the political spectrum) or you just keep your adgenda to yourself, and make it a guerilla war... I think that's better

When you "organize" something (religion, politics, etc), things begin to corrupt - on both sides of the isle...;)

Rush had corrective surgery for his hearing with experimental implants earlier in the year. His tagline now is the 'bionic' talk show host. Before the surgery it was quite apparent his hearing was gone due to his voice changing drastically because he couldn't hear himself.

Has anyone heard that Country Music tribube to ZZ Top? I heard a version of Sharp Dressed Man last night but I group I didn't know but Billy Gibbons and the bass player (sorry i forgot his name) were in the video. It was a great version with some really nice country picking in it. :dude
