Just found out recently that U.S. Democratic Presidential Candidate, Sen. John Kerry is one of us (!) Turns out he played bass for a band called The Electras in his prep school days in the early 60s. Read on: Rocking the Vote, John Kerry Style September 14, 2003 New York Times WHEN the recording artist known as Moby headlined a $75-a-ticket fund-raiser in Boston for Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts the other night, some were stunned to see Mr. Kerry take the stage, grab a guitar and bark to the crowd, "Let's rock and roll." Mr. Kerry joined a local band, Popgun 7, in Bruce Springsteen's "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out," after which he pumped his fist in the air, Springsteen style. "Don't say it — don't give up my day job," he begged the audience. "If I weren't running for president so hard, I'd rock all night and have fun." It turns out, despite his usual blueblood reserve, Mr. Kerry is a rocker from way back. As a prep school student in New Hampshire, he played a mean bass guitar. How does anyone know? At the concert, Erik Lindgren of Middleboro, Mass., brought along a 1961 album by the Electras, Mr. Kerry's band, with liner notes that said he was "producer of a pulsating rhythm that lends tremendous force to all the numbers." After showing Mr. Kerry the album, Mr. Lindgren said: "He flipped. He hadn't seen one in years." Mr. Lindgren left the concert a believer in Mr. Kerry — as a musician, if not as a president. "This is proof that the guy rocks out," he said.
