WASHINGTON — One of the perks President Obama enjoys, as an avid basketball player, is that occasionally he can get games with famous hoopsters.
Well, Collin Peterson is a guitarist, in a band of lawmakers called the Second Amendments. And tonight, he’s got a gig with a member of the Rolling Stones.
Stones keyboardist Chuck Leavell, an avid environmentalist who recently wrote a book on “sustainable, smart growth,” will play with Peterson at the Washington Plaza Hotel, at an event co-sponsored by the U.S. Forest Service.
As Leavell told POLITICO:
I’m playing with Collin Peterson, who’s with the congressional band Second Amendments, on Wednesday night. I’ve testified on the last two farm bills, and Collin has been a friend and he’s also been instrumental in helping to pass positive policy concerning our forests. So we’re going to kick up our heels and have good fun with that.
