Thread Name: Bruce Springsteen and the Dixie Chicks
Subject: RE: BS: Bruce Springsteen and the Dixie Chicks
Didn't the Beatles go through this same sort of shit back in `67 or so? Lennon made sort sort of "We're outselling Jesus" comment and a whole lot of people who didn't like their music anyway went apeshit. I understand record sales went up just so they'd have something to toss on the bonfires.
Didn't hurt them much in the long run anyway, even though Epstein and Co. made Lennon issue a half-assed apology.
