Emphasis on the some. Being against Carter in 1980 was an easy step. A number of rockers got the political jitters towards the end of the 70s—Bowie famously suggested, under whatever mix of drugs I know not, that Britain might need a fascist strongman, and even Paul Weller, as the great Will Morrissey pointed out to me once, was briefly pro-Thatcher. Lots of interesting flirtations w/right-wing themes in early new wave. But they were squelched . . . Weller changed his tune quick due to a backlash, and was stridently socialist by 1984.
More surprising political revelations and re-thinkings to come as the boomer rockers face down mortality and look back on it all, I’m sure.
