It’s getting personal for the southern metal rocker he told CBS Radio’s SixX Strings host Shawn Sixx, “People don’t wanna hear politics from Jackyl, At the end of the day, I’m just in a rock ‘n’ roll band. But my stance is not necessarily politics; it’s more or less to tell Bono and Bruce Springsteen, ‘Shut your f—ing mouths, you f—ing self-indulgent c—suckers. Bruce Springsteen standing there, rattling off about Trump. … I don’t need to hear it from Bruce Springsteen. Bruce just needs to sing f—ing ‘Born To Run’ and shut the f— up.”

The singer who is well known for using a chainsaw as an instrument on stage says he likes Springsteen’s music and would love to have a chat face to face with him adding, “I’d be glad to meet up with you anytime. F— you! And I like some of the Bruce Springsteen songs … for a minute. I mean, I’m not slagging on Bruce Springsteen or his fans. But I’m saying, I don’t wanna hear him talk about politics.”

Dupree has gotten political before posting anti-gun control info on his Facebook page. What do you think? Should Rockers talk politics? It’s been going on for years but is there a place for it?..and is Springsteen one chainsaw short of a good hoedown? – by John Beaudin
