First, Elton John played at Rush Limbaugh's wedding and now he has spoken out and admonished those musicians who are boycotting Arizona because of their new immigration law. WAY TO GO, ELTON!!
From Fox News:
Never one to back out of a performance to make a statement, music icon Elton John offered some choice words for his fellow musicians who choose to boycott Arizona over the SB 1070 immigration law.
According to the Arizona Daily Star, while performing at his sold-out concert at the Tucson Arena, he said:
"We are all very pleased to be playing in Arizona. I have read that some of the artists won't come here. They are f***wits! Let's face it: I still play in California, and as a gay man I have no legal rights whatsoever. So what's the (expletive) with these people?"
John is known for not giving into outside pressures when it comes to playing concerts in politically charged environments.
Last month, he ignored calls for a boycott of Israel, playing in Tel Aviv amid debates about an aid flotilla.
Here is more on his decision to play in Israel.
"Musicians spread love and peace, and bring people together. That's what we do," he said of artists like Elvis Costello and Santana, who canceled performances in Israel. "We don't cherry-pick our conscience."
Elton John is the bomb!!! He rocks!!! Elton John is a classy guy. He can disagree with your position and still be respectful of you at the same time.
This is one of my favorite Elton John's songs. Enjoy!!
