Shit happens. It’s not the end of the world and everything will be ok people. He messed up a lyric. Ask ANYONE who has ever had the honor of singing our National Anthem and ask them if they were not nervous. I couldn’t do it. I’d be shitting my pants just trying to get through it. So for those bashing him, have some compassion and understanding that it happens and it won’t be the last time.
From Aaron Lewis of Staind:
“All I can say is I’m sorry and ask for the Nation’s forgiveness. My nerves got the best of me and I am completely torn up about what happened. America is the greatest country in the world. The Star-Spangled Banner means so much to so many, including myself. I hope everyone can understand the intensity of the situation and my true intent of this performance. I hope that the Nation, Major League Baseball and the many fans of our national pastime can forgive me.”
With that said…. While you’re bitching about how American he is or isn’t, why not do something worthwhile with your time and feed the hungry and help stomp out starvation and poverty in America.
