Run For The Hills

Two of my favorite bloggers are engaged in a war of words over a feud between two prominent heavy metal acts. Surprisingly, this has nothing to do with Ronnie James Dio.

First, JB Doubtless tells the tale of the Ozzfest feud between Sharon Osbourne and Iron Maiden. He sides with Sharon, who accuses Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson of anti-American talk, including jabs at the US space program, Corporate America and JB's personal sacred cow, Wal-Mart. JB offers a variety of sources for his accusations, most who had some connection to the feud.

Of course, this doesn't sit well with Learned Foot, perhaps the #1 Maiden fan in the blogosphere. He accuses JB of being duped and brings in the National Review as well as others who are familiar with Maiden's history.

I will be doing a thorough investigation of the issue before I form a final opinion. I suggest you do the same. Ultimately, I suspect professional arbitration will be required to get to the bottom of what really happened.

"Professional arbitration"

Dash it all! I knew I should have asked Footsie for a payoff before hitting the "Post" button.

Well, I suppose I know you well enough by now to be on a first name basis anyway. Is that pronunced "Lurnd"? I think that's what the guy at Keegan's said.

LF is starting to sound more like Hinderocker every day.

His pathetic appeal to authority with the National Review link was just sad since IT SAID NOTHING TO REFUTE DICKINSON'S VIRULENT ANTI-AMERICANISM.

It just they were, like, a good band and stuff.

Until credible evidence is brought forward that Dickinson is not a whacked out leftist, the smart conservatives will have to side with Sharon.

And another thing...

Have you listened to the lyrics to Run To The Hills?

Standard leftist tripe about how the eveeel white man came and killed the noble savages and the perfect culture they had created.

Juvenile nonsense.
