Peter Gabriel Pulls Song From Limbaugh’s Show
Add Peter Gabriel to the list of names of people outraged by comments made by Rush Limbaugh on his show last week.
Gabriel’s ’80’s hit “Sledgehammer” was playing in the background as the conservative radio host referred to Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke as a “slut” and a “prostitute” last Wednesday.
On his Facebook page, a rep for Gabriel said, “Peter was appalled to learn that his music was linked to Rush Limbaugh’s extraordinary attack on Sandra Fluke. It is obvious from anyone that knows Peter’s work that he would never approve such a use. He has asked his representatives to make sure his music is withdrawn and especially from these unfair aggressive and ignorant comments.”
