"You know I like to be politically correct, but sometimes I’m politically incorrect,” he said on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live at the time. "But I’ll say that I would love to see a woman in office because I feel like we’re at that stage in life to where we need a perspective other than the male’s train of thought. And just to have a woman speaking from a global perspective as far as representing America, I’d love to see that. So I’ll be voting for Ms. Clinton."

The Republican National Convention, which takes place the week before the Democratic National Convention, has its own slate of rock stars, including Kid Rock and Dave Navarro, ready to support Donald Trump's presidential campaign.
