Wow! I mean, what's Butchie gonna say?

The author made specific mention about fees paid ... by the Republicans. I wonder if he thinks the same or similar acts play for free for the Democrats?

To be fair, the only political rhetoric I've heard come outta Gregory (during a show) was, "vote!". I don't think I've ever heard him be specific.

I guess if he's truly getting 100K for the show, it makes good financial sense.

I didn't see any mention of Romney supporter Ted Nugent. He seems like a logical fit for that ideology.

It would be nice if the writer of the article could spell Gregg's name correctly.

Remember we're talking Gregg Allman. Definitely not the poster boy for responsibility.

I was a little disappointed to see Derek and Susan as donating to Obama. And, playing the inaugural balls, etc. But, it has not once stopped me from buying one of his albums.

Was there the same feeling of animosity when Gregg and the ABB supported Jimmy Carter? Obviously he has been forgiven for that unmitigated disaster.

So far the Republicans will have the Midnight Rambler himself, Greg Allman, of the Allman Brothers- said to be getting upwards of $100,000 for one show– as well as Journey, Kid Rock, Big Head Todd, Blues Traveler, Robert Earl Keen, Drive by Truckers, and Better Than Ezra. The Democrats have so far only secured The Roots and will.i.am from the Black Eyed Peas. But certainly more names will be added soon.

Irrefutable proof that Republicans have better taste in music.

Show me the money. Hey! Popper's a gun nut, isn't he?

When they add Steve Earle, then I will get worried.

Does this make me lose respect for Gregg??? Well, if he is a supporter of Romney and the Republican party then I respect his decision. If he or any of the other performers are really supporters of the Democrats and are doing these gigs just for the money then I would lose a lot of respect for them. To take money from a political party that you don't support is just whoring yourself out IMO.

Wouldn't it be cool though if Gregg were to do the gig but during song breaks explain to the crowd how he is really a supporter of Obama and that everyone should vote for him in the coming election.

Seeing how ABB played an Obama/Biden benefit in 2008, this IS big news. Has Gregg had a change of heart politically or is he just doing a "paying gig?"

I say both parties have a Battle Of The Bands... kind of like the Friday Night Video Fights on MTV back in the day...

If he hasn't had a change of heart politically then he is being nothing more than a whore for the Republicans unless he plans to explain his support for the other side.

If he has always been for the Republicans then he was a whore for doing the benefit in 2008. I personally believe that an entertainer like anyone else should stand by their convictions and support the side they believe in. Anything else regardless of how big a pay day is just being phony IMO!!!
