Know Your Enemy

"Athletes and musicians make astronomical amounts of money. Shouldn't we all take less and pass some of that money onto others? Think about firefighters, teachers and policemen. ... We're all so overpaid. It's ridiculous. People stopped going to concerts because they can't afford them. The Rolling Stones are charging $650 per ticket! That just makes me speechless."

Power to the people! A surprising but nevertheless welcome stance towards musicians' greed and exploitation of their audiences adopted by none other than card-carrying Republican Kid Rock. Apparently "No ticket for his co-headlining tour with blues/rock legends ZZ Top will cost more than $20." Well, yes, that sounds bargainous, but it'd still be about $20 too much to have to sit/stand through one of Mr Rock's gigs...
