And lest we forget, Toby Keith, in the words of Natalie Maines, embodied everything that is wrong with country music with "The Angry American" (or as I call it, "that friggin' stupid 'boot-in-your-booty' song"). Remember back in the good old days when music decried war, not glorified it? I'm not going for a political statement when I say this, but I find it incredibly odd that the same folks who record songs about how anyone opposed to war is un-American and satanic and whatever are the ones who tell folks like Sheryl Crow to "shut up and sing" when they're merely wearing a guitar strap that says "Give peace a chance."Originally Posted by Caesar
But I digress. For that reason and many others, I must wholeheartedly agree with Toby Keith is definite poopiepants. I have both the recent live all-star Willie Nelson CDs, with collaborations from Norah Jones to Steven Tyler, John Mellencamp to Ray Charles, ZZ Top to Wyclef Jean, and the two tracks with Keith are the only ones I'd ever skip over.
And as one Aerosmith fanatic to another, the live rendition of "One Time Too Many" beats the snot out of the studio version, even if only Steven's present.
