My heart all but broke when I learned that Jon Bon Jovi held a fundraiser for Barack Obama. Bon Jovi was my first rockstar crush. I was in 5th grade.

But another rocker that I loved when I was growing up has come out with an endorsement for John McCain, Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry.

This quote from Perry had me saying, “Jon Bon Who?”

“I’ve been a hardcore Republican my whole life,” he told the Herald. “My mother and father drilled into me from the very start that if you work hard and be positive, you’ll get what you’re working for. I guess I’m living proof of that.”

On McCain being too old,

“My mother’s in her 80s and she does aerobics. My manager’s 70 and he’s right there. That doesn’t bother me.”

Reaction to the polls,

“I’m an optimist. It ain’t over till its over,” he said. “I think that he’s got a chance.”

Rock on.
