Very disappointed in you Mr. Vedder

DENVER (AP) - Dozens of fans walked out of a Pearl Jam concert after lead singer Eddie Vedder took a mask of President Bush and impaled it on a microphone stand.

Several concertgoers booed and shouted Tuesday night for Vedder to shut up as he told the crowd he was against the war and Bush. He impaled the mask during the encore of the band's opening show of a U.S. tour.

"It was like he decapitated someone in a primal ritual and stuck their head on a stick," fan Keith Zimmerman said.

Vedder used a Bush mask in Australia and Japan to perform the song "Bushleaguer," from the band's latest album, "Riot Act." The song's lyrics say, "He's not a leader, he's a Texas leaguer."

During the show, Vedder said: "Just to clarify... we support the troops."

"We're just confused on how wanting to bring them back safely all of a sudden becomes non-support," he said. "We love them. They're not the ones who make the foreign policy .... Let's hope for the best and speak our opinions."

Pearl Jam manager Kelly Curtis could not immediately be reached for comment Thursday.

The Dixie Chicks were the target of boycotts and bans after their lead singer made anti-Bush statements on a London stage last month.

Yep and you know what. I don't agree with his thinking but I could've put up with it if he didn't have to voice his opinion in such an imature way.

Isn't there some old law still on the books about ridiculing the President????

Dude! I saw a couple of Alman Bros. shows where they practically had to strap Greg to the piano bench to keep him from falling off!

Just goes to show, sometimes free speech isn't so free!

Reminds of of the show where the lead for Lynard Skynard played a tribute to Duane Allman and when someone booed he jumped off the stange onto them. He climbed back onto the stage with blood running down his face and said, "This is for Duane dammit!". Sometimes you just gotta love rednecks!

That is the best way to rattle them. Hit them in their fan support and bad press which, ultimately, will hit them in their pocketbooks.

I am already in the habit of switching stations whenever a Pearl Jam sog starts due to Vedder's stand on other political issues being so offensive to me.

I believe you may be referring to the Alien and Sedition Acts that were enacted under President John Adams in the late 1790s. I'm not sure if they were repealed when Jefferson took office or if the Supreme Court declared them unconstitutional as a violation of the first amendment.

But if you are in the military, believe there is an article of the UCMJ that prohibits disparing the commander-in-chief (there was a rerun of JAG that dealt with it this week).

Also, I believe there may be a law against ridiculing the prime minister in Canada, but I don't know if the punishment is a fine or jail time. Our members who originally came from the other side of the "Molsen curtain" might be able to fill us in.

Now THAT one I didn't hear about - and I normally try to keep up with what goes on with Creed.

Yep people were pretty hard on him because he is vocal about his christianity. Everyone slips up though, and we aren't the ones to pass judgement.

It would've sucked to have tickets for that one though

And as I recall, isn't there some bad blood between Scott Stapp (from Creed) and Eddie Vedder? Or am I thinking of Fred Durst from Limp Bizkit? Stapp challenged one of them to a charity boxing match a year or two ago.

(On second thought, I think it was Durst).

Yes..there was beef between (creed and PJ)the two, not sure whatever happened tho.

As far as the shitty Creed show, well Dec 27th 2002 they played at the Allstate. Scott Stapp came out very very drunk, even left the stage at one point in the middle of a song. Feel on his ass a couple times and slured every horrible word.

We waited a few hours for a good floor spot as I do every show (Madison, and Chicago before that in 99) Also attended the Tweeter show, but that was seating and lawn only.
So I can honestly say I follow Creed.. LOL.

Big upset to the Chicago fans and no public apology or anything.

I thought about going to see Pearl Jam at Alpine V., not anymore!! Eddie Vedder is a dumb ass anyway. Just consider the source, their basiclly washed up anyway, Eddie and his pea brain probably thought this might sell some extra tickets or disc's, opps.

On a different note (sorry for the pun) I read this morning that Linkin Park is giving free tickets for their concerts to anybody that has an affiliation to the military (i.e. served, serving, or family members of) in support of our troops. Way to go guys!!

I'm tired of these groups/artists saying Bush is terrible but they support the troops clearly only to make sure they don't piss off ALL of their fans instead of just some of them. If you noticed no one said the support the troops blerb until after they realized what would happen to them if they spoke out against the war entirely (Dixie Chicks).
