As Scott Brown (R-Elsewhere) continues to Hamlet a New Hampshire senate race against Jeanne Shaheen (D-Nowhere), the Boston Herald continues to play groupie to Brown’s, well, groupie.
From today’s Inside Track:
Scott Brown plays Trick onstage
Maybe Scott Brown should just ditch the whole politics thing and become a rock star. Because the former U.S. senator — and maybe future candidate for U.S. Senate from New Hampshire — ripped it up onstage with Cheap Trick over the weekend, singing and playing guitar on the band’s big ’78 hit “Surrender.”
“It was a lot of fun,” Brown told the Track. “Great guys. Very talented and gracious. … Looking forward to doing it again.”
(Brown also tweeted this out: “Just played guitar with Cheap Trick. It was sooooooo fun.” What is he – twelve years old?)
The frisky local tabloid helpfully provides this video to illustrate just how fun it was:
The hard(of)hearing staff will be the first to admit that we stopped listening to rock ‘n’ roll right about, oh, Katy Lied. So we’ll refrain from passing musical judgment and just say Brown’s as gifted a musician as he is a policymaker.
Rock on . . . or bqhatevwr.
