Y’all Even the Cover Band Quit

January 16, 2017 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

I am kinda tickled to be the one to let you know that even the Bruce Springsteen cover band has quit the Trump inauguration.

The B-Street band pulled out.

Wanna know why?

“We felt that we had to make it known that we didn’t want to seem disrespectful, in any way, shape or form, to Bruce and his music and his band,” Forte says. “I don’t want to upset them. We owe everything to him and our gratitude and respect to the band is imperative above all else. It became clear to us that this wasn’t working and we just had to do what we thought was the right thing to do and that was to pull out.”

Okay, so maybe Clint Eastwood and Gary Busey can quickly form a band.  Otherwise, there’s not going to be much dancing at the balls.

    snacilbupeR, dancing and balls. Not going there even with dispensation from Mama.

    There’s a Russian feminist protest punk rock group based in Moscow with the perfect name to play for Donnie. Maybe if he asks Vlad nicely …

    Wait! I know what will work!

    Get Clint Eastwood to yell at an empty chair. That makes for a great show! And maybe Sarah Palin can trot out one of her pregnant daughters and tell us how beautiful the wedding will be! Make America great again!

  4. Respect.
    For the Boss.
    Not so much for the other guy getting inaugurated.

    They gonna have some interesting traffic jams when they’re in New Jersey. Big Chris don’t like to be crossed-up.

  6. Jane & PKM, that’s almost *too* perfect! Hahaha!

  7. If anyone performs a Springsteen song at the abomination, I predict they’ll be found dead in a room that can only be locked from the inside, like schrodinger’s cat. With only the mouthpiece of a saxophone protruding from their rectum, courtesy of the ghost of the Big Man.

  8. On a different thread, we saw Don Henley last night in Sugar Land. Great show. But on the way home today with our liberal friends, our conversation touched on the fact that even though he conversed with us quite a lot, his remarks were very restrained about Donnie Douchebag. Which we thought was kinda odd considering how liberal he is. And then one of us pointed out that the he’s a Texas boy and is aware of the fact that we weren’t in Austin, but some other place in Texas. Just down the road from Richmond. Nuttier than squirrel poo, right JJ? He didn’t restrain himself to keep from offending people. He knew that a lot of his fans are liberal. But there’s gonna be a lot of RWNJ’S there. Cause like I said, he’s from Texas. He didn’t want his fans in fistfights. And maybe firefights. Love you Don. Sorry you gotta share a name with the biggest embarrassment in American history.

    Excellent.

  10. All that, and only 3 balls, rather than the usual 8-12. 70 yo Toddler is a massive failure even before his “abomination.” (Good one P.P.)

  11. What does it say that A-list entertainers almost universally abstained from the Cheeto Jesus bandwagon?

    Maybe that being in entertainment means exposure to people that are different from themselves, and that they learn that it’s a big world. Food, music, Art, etc. are ways to make one want to enjoy new company…

    Jane and PKM, P Riot HATES Putin (he jailed them for protesting against him). The last thing they are going to do is perform for CJ.

  13. Methinks the Boss had a few choice pieces of advice for the cover band. Since they have to have permission to perform Springsteen’s music, the case might have been made that he didn’t want it associated with Drumpf and permission would
    henceforth be denied.

    maryelle, I think you are 100% correct in that assumption.

    I hope this is prelude. Let’s remember, folks, as Prez there will be State Dinners which always have entertainment. Watcha gonna dew, Donnie? Ah… the pleasure of the word NO.

    I just might get some enjoyment out of this presidency after all. *tee hee*

    Pull out, Donnie, like your father should have. (60s joke)

  17. Me thinks the Marine Band (otherwise known as “The President’s Own) and all the other local military bands (The Singing Sergeants?) will be very busy that night–ya know, providing dance music and other appropriate entertainment. I’ll bet more than a few of them will be contemplating their career choices while they’re at it.

    Rhea, well said and a wee chuckle also. Local paper reported that there were more unpurchased ball gowns than in the last 38 years. After traitor trump bragged that “no ball gown anywhere in DC area. “. One more lie. Surprised that there are enough swamp rats to fill three balls. Think traitor trump should have a bucket of slaughterhouse waste dumped over his nasty head. That would be worth watching.

    Tilphousia: Who needs a ball gown? Take a white sheet, add a hood. It’s a Butterick pattern. You could whip that sucker up in no time. Add some bling and you’re done!

    Personally, I want to see the hair. Y’know Teh Gayz will NOT be doing Repug lady hair. Probably all wigs done at home and carted in.

    This whole thing just gets funnier as it goes. I still remember Clinton’s first. DC was a mess. People everywhere. Balls everywhere. Worked that day and reps were coming back saying “Guess who I saw on the subway?” At around 6 pm, walking up K St. to 15th for Chinese (working late) and a stretch limo was at the corner trying to maneuver into gridlock traffic. Window rolls down. OMG! Little Richard! What a weird fun day that was!

  20. Lordy, lordy! What did we do way back in the day when we didn’t have any bands or other entertainment? Ever hear of a hootenanny? We sang. Some of us even went barbershop. We made our our fun, in short. Sound like something over-rated A listers at the Monsters’ Ball would do? Shucks! I bet they wouldn’t even think of humming! When JFK was sworn in I went to the Young Dems ball with a Coast Guard Academy cadet. Could have gone to a number of other balls as well. the crowds were so enormous that no one was really checking invitations at the doors. Damn! But that was real fun! The only inaugural ball to even come close to matching that was Obama’s. them were the days and with the days that are coming up, them days are going to look even more golden than they really were.

    So we have some of the Rockettes, most of the Mormon Tabernacle choir, and a country act.

    Yee-haw, boys. I can barely restrain myself.

    There will be NO ball watching or seeing if the Bible bursts into flame on Friday in my apartment!! I may spend the day watching TCM movies or doing something far removed from anything connected to the Orange Twatgrabbing SOB’s shoehorning into the Oval Office. The TV will be on but not for that pile of sh*t … he’ll want to see ratings but they should be low, low, and lower because lots of folks will not be watching his Orangeness doing anything … they will be watching something not even associated to that activity!!
    And who, pray tell, will be prancing down the avenue with The Orange One? Will it be Melania or will it be Ivanka on Daddy’s arm? Hmmmmm? They’d be better suited to a couple back alleys!!
    Oh, all of the Talking Heads will be having a field day with all the recaps of the recaps for days to come!! Every time I think of that epitome of orange ugliness stepping foot into the White House, I feel like vomiting and crying at the same time!

    OTOH, I was utterly unsurprised to hear that Toby Keith will be performing. A perfect fit, with his jingoistic racism.

  24. Why no Ted Nugent? Those creeps are his people.

  25. RE: Don Henley

    Two words: Stevie Nicks 🙂

    The offal bucket challenge! I LOVE it!

    Latest I have read, there will be upwards of 900 THOUSAND protesters.
    Could be that the dearth of dancers at inaugural sindigs will be replaced by dancing in the streets.

    Surely they have a deejay and a karaoke machine lined up. If the K-machine isn’t, they can use the one Kellyann practices her rambling on.
