Less Than A Feeling

Huckabee: Less Than A Feeling

Mike Huckabee is slipping in the all important classic rock vote:
Tom Scholz of the band Boston fired off a letter yesterday to Mike Huckabee asking the Republican presidential hopeful to stop using the song "More Than a Feeling" at rallies and campaign appearances. "Boston has never endorsed a political candidate, and with all due respect, would not start by endorsing a candidate who is the polar opposite of most everything Boston stands for," Scholz wrote. "Although I'm impressed you learned my bass guitar part on 'More Than a Feeling,' I am an Obama supporter."

This gets into band politics as well: while Scholz wrote the song (which, if you listen carefully, has the same chords as Louie Louie), former bandmember Barry "extra set of hands" Goudreau played with Huckabee last summer right `cheer in I-O-way.

Huckabee's plans for touring with Amy Winehouse are still on hold. (Give the guy a little credit: at least he or someone in the entourage at least knew who she was.)
