Dave Matthews Will ‘Stand Up’ for Obama
In a recent interviewÂ with Extra, Dave Matthews not only discussed the release of his bandâs brand-new album, âAway From the Worldâ â he also revealed his thoughts on politics and other matters. âIâll vote for Obama; Iâll stand up for Obama,â he said.
Matthews went on to remark, âI disagree with him on a lot, but we all should disagree with each other in some ways. I think the alternative is terrible and I donât believe in trickle down economics at all.â
He hopes to inspire social awareness through his songs, which he admits are often drawn from accounts from his own life. âI donât know if itâs political,â he said, referring to âAway From the World.â âItâs just my own reflections and my own concerns for my kids.â
Speaking of kids, Matthews is a father of three and boasts that his offspring are just as musically-inclined as he is, if not more. âMy son is superb at air guitar,â he gushed proudly. âHeâs already better at the whole rock star thing than I will ever be.â
