Red Hot Chili Peppers Lend President Obama A Hand In Ohio

Yeah, don't say it doesn't pay to volunteer for the President:

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The Red Hot Chili Peppers are putting their music behind the Obama campaign in Ohio.
The Los Angeles-based group will perform a free concert for Obama campaign workers at the House of Blues in Cleveland Sunday afternoon, following the band's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum Saturday night.
The group, which supports President Barack Obama, saw giving a free concert as a way to help him, said an Obama campaign official in Ohio.
But to get in the concert, you must be willing to work for the Obama campaign this week by volunteering at any Northeast Ohio phone bank. A link was activated Monday night allowing people to volunteer. Tickets are limited.
I think it's cool when stars get involved, especially ones who actually know what they're issues are. A few years back when I saw the Chili Peppers, they had booths in the arena to sign up for Congressman Kucinich's peace group. These guys have their beliefs, and they're encouraging similar minded people to get involved. That'd be cool, even from a Republican star. That I happen to think the Chili Peppers are arguably the world's best rock band these days, and share my politics, is awesome.
