Bush's Rossdale Joins Austrian Protest

Singer inserted Jewish prayer into 'Prizefighter' during Vienna show.

Bush singer Gavin Rossdale demonstrated his opposition to the right-wing views of People's Party leader Joerg Haider by inserting a Jewish prayer into a song during two Austrian performances, a spokesperson for the grunge-rock group said. Haider, whose party recently helped form a ruling coalition, reportedly has expressed admiration for former Nazi leader Adolf Hitler. Rossdale inserted a portion of the traditional blessing for the bread Hammotzi into the Bush song "Prizefighter" during a pair of weekend performances in Graz and Vienna.
