If you could elect any musician as president which would it be? I would chose Lemmy Kilmister.
Yikes! Lemmy Kilmister President?
This post could put me on the Secret Service watch list.
I'd say Tim McIlrath, of Rise Against.
Oh, let me mention, he's a vegetarian (i think he might even be vegan) and has heterochromia (two different colored eyes=cool) as well as being a straight edge (no drugs, drinking, etc). Reason it'll never happen: A. Hes a musician not a politician and B. He's really liberal.
On a more likely chance is Krist Novoselic the former bassist for Nirvana who is active in Washington state politics.
Easy. Let's have another Clinton... George Clinton!
I'd have to pick Dan Fogelberg if he wasn't so dead. Maybe "the boss"...
For the US, I'd choose Zack de la Rocha, that would be fun to watch!
For South Africa (my country of birth), Johnny Clegg
For Belgium, Trent Reznor, that would keep things interesting
If Zack de la Rocha became president the south would secede again.
Mike Einziger [the guitarist from Incubus] would be a cool choice.
I agree. Musicians should not be presidents. I don't even think most musicians should even be musicians.
Sting because Sting cares.
Lemmy would rock actually, he actually seems to be a pretty average bloke off stage.
George Michael, he (could) avert cock ups.
I've never heard of this Lemmy fellow till today.
I don't know if I like his political leanings:
I don't really have a problem with his Nazi stuff. I've an original copy of Mein Kampf on my bookshelf, and about 1000 Nazi stamps in my collection. But a libertarian? I've never met a libertarian I agreed with on anything. And I mean anything.
I'd elect Joni Mitchell. She sings perty.
One of her songs, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTP0wUdLoEI", might indicate some of her social and political leanings.
Oh my. I've never read the http://www.lyricsfreak.com/j/joni+mitchell/the+three+great+stimulants_20075319.html" before. It's "Artifice and Innocence". I always thought she was singing "Part of it's an innocence". I always wondered why my count was off on that song.
Hmmm... Reading all of the lyrics, it looks as though absolutely nothing has changed since 1985, when the song was written. hmmm..... Imagine that.
Well... the choice is obvious. Clearly, no musician has "ready for office" written all over him more than Cedric Bixler-Zavala:
Mostly because I'd love to see him at press meetings, throwing mike-stands and monitors at reporters, yelling at them for "acting like a bunch of white people."
I'm thinking Danny Elfman, he's a really smart dude.
I chose Lemmy because he seems like a cool person and he would try and minimize the govt. He wouldn't want the govt. to keep expanding like current politicians do.
Separate names with a comma.
