The former Lemonheads attacks Bush in an impassioned speech...
Former LEMONHEADS frontman EVAN DANDO has jeopardised his rock rebirth after he launched a tirade against US president GEORGE W BUSHat an instore promotional gig in LONDON last night (March 19).
Dando was performing an acoustic gig at HMV Oxford Circus to launch his new album ‘Baby I’m Bored’, when launched the attack.
In his attack he personally named Bush stating that he hated him and that he “loved his country. That guy is trying to kill us.”
Country starlets The Dixie Chicks took a similar anti-war stance last week speaking out against George W Bush, and have since seen their career go into freefall. The trio, who are multi-million selling artists in the US, were banned from dozens of country music stations and saw copies of their records symbolically destroyed during public meetings throughout their heartland in the southern states.
Dando was clearly in a garrulous mood last night as he extended his planned six-song set to 26 tracks, entertaining the 1,000-strong crowd for over an hour-and-a-half.
His set kicked off with a cover of Barry McGuire’s 60s classic ‘Eve Of Destruction’. He also played covers of ‘Thrasher’ by Neil Young and Gram Parsons’ ‘A Song For You’ as well as songs off his new album and Lemonheads classics ‘Big Gay Heart’, ‘Into My Arms’ and ‘Bein’ Around’.
