Gabriel fumes at Limbaugh
Peter Gabriel has said that he wants his music pulled from Rush Limbaugh's radio show is the USA, following the conservative commentator's remarks about Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke. A representative for Gabriel posted a message on his Facebook page Monday, asking that his music no longer be used on Limbaugh's show. Gabriel's song "Sledgehammer" was played in the background while Limbaugh called Fluke a "slut" and a "prostitute" after she testified at a Congressional hearing about contraception. And Canadian rockers Rush have also formally demanded that the Rush Limbaugh Program stop using the band's music on air.
