Celebrities are out in force in presenting their honest opinions against US President Donald Trump. Just this week, Madonna said her move to a new home in Portugal was primarily because of the political upset currently being felt in the US, saying “this isn’t the country’s finest hour”.
Up next is Pearl Jam, famed grunge makers who don’t mind throwing the odd political message into the rock’n’roll mix.
To promote a concert in Montana this week, Pearl Jam printed a poster depicting the White House on fire and a bald eagle pecking at Donald Trump’s corpse. See if you can spot the dead Prez near the bottom, left, below.
The poster was designed by the band’s bass player, Jeff Ament, with artist friend Bobby Brown (no relation, indeed this Brown usually tags his art with the name Bobby Draws Skullz).
Pearl Jam posted the poster art on its social media yesterday, with the following note from Ament:
“Y’all know the deal. We’re at a tipping point, and it’s time for action.”
He then called for Montana locals to support the Democratic Senator Jon Tester. “Tester is the real deal,” wrote Ament. “Nobody cares more about our country and especially Montana.”
Pearl Jam are currently touring the US with ‘The Away Shows’, having previously played their ‘Home Shows’ in Seattle. Antonino Tati
