Don Henley’s War with Chuck DeVore

California’s political landscape this election cycle has been, for lack
of a better term, bizarre. We’ve had Web attack videos of Barbara Boxer
as a blimp, Tom Campbell as a demon sheep and Meg Whitman as a sad
looking, Rankin Bass-like puppet figure.

But two spots coming from
right-of-right Senate candidate Chuck DeVore may prove to have the
longest lingering bite. The person most irked by DeVore’s productions is
neither of their intended targets, Barbara Boxer or President Obama,
but singer Don Henley.

That’s the topic of my latest column in the print version of Variety, which you can read here.
