Artists Wearing the American Flag
Artists have been wearing the American flag at their concerts for nearly as long as there's been rock music. Which makes sense, because if we had our way, we'd change that old television commercial to say, "baseball, hot dogs, apple pie and ROCK AND ROLL."
Now sometimes the stars and stripes are donned in an ironic or protesting way, but over the following pages we're going to focus on patriotic musicians simply and proudly demonstrating their love of America. You'll see "Old Glory" customized to fit on jackets, tuxedos, guitars and even shorts, sported by some of the most famous classic rockers of all time. To quote David Lee Roth, "Raise the flag, baby / Let's see who salutes!"
