Neil Young Album Impeaches Bush

Alicia's blog, Last Left Turn Before Hooterville reports that she was invited to sing in a stellar choir on a new album by Neil Young, a good ole fashioned protest album that calls for the impeachment of Bush II. Her blog was picked up by the mass media where the story became News. This news was then treated as hateful treason by the usual Rightwing nutjobs.

Here's an excerpt:

On Wednesday, I was at work when I got a call for a Neil Young session the next day. Needless to say, I was excited about it - Neil Young is one of my musical heroes. When my husband and I got to Capitol, we found 98 other singers, a collection of L.A.'s finest. All I knew was that we were singing on a new Neil Young record, but when the lyrics we were supposed to sing flashed on the giant screen, a roar went up from the choir. I'm not going to give the whole thing away, but the first line of one of the songs was "Let's impeach the President for lyin'!" Turns out the whole thing is a classic beautiful protest record. The session was like being at a 12-hour peace rally. Every time new lyrics would come up on the screen, there were cheers, tears and applause. . . .

Neil said it should be out in 6 to 8 weeks. I hope all of you get a chance to hear it.
