The Strokes Defend Kanye's Bush Bashing

THE STROKES have leapt to the defence of KANYE WEST, following the rapper's public attack on US President GEORGE W BUSH.

The hip-hop star declared Bush "does not care about black people" during a telethon to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Katrina, which devastated America's gulf coast in August (05).

The Strokes drummer FABRIZIO MORETTI says, "I f**king loved what he said.

"He said George Bush didn't care about black people. I think that regardless of what he said or where we was saying it, he's got some balls and I respect that.

"I think he's a very talented young man as well. I also think that he should continue to produce because the s**t that's he produced is really rad(ical). I'd like to work with him."
