Bill Clinton is well-known for being one of the hippest U.S. presidents ever. He made youth-culture/political history during the 1992 presidential election by holding open forums with college kids on MTV and wailing on his saxophone on "The Arsenio Hall Show." His 1993 "Rock and Roll Inaugural Ball," also broadcast on MTV, featured performances by 1990s greats U2, R.E.M., Soul Asylum, and 10,000 Maniacs. He's been known to hang out with David Bowie and Mick Jagger. And both Bill and his wife Hilary have actually won Grammys!
And years after President Clinton left office, he continues to align himself with the music world. Case in point: October 15th's "A Decade Of Difference" event, an allstar Hollywood Bowl concert celebrating 10 years of the William J. Clinton Foundation. Artists scheduled to perform include U2's Bono and The Edge, Lady Gaga, Kenny Chesney, Usher, K'naan, Juanes, and more. Pretty cool.
