Rockin' the Caskets Like a Man From the Carpathians


I knew that Hungarian Ambassador to the United States Andras Simonyi was in a rock band, but I did not know it was called The Coalition of the Willing. And, depending on your point of view, something about the following paragraph is just plain Wrong … or Right.

Simonyi's bandmates included guitarists Lincoln Bloomfield, the former assistant secretary of state for political-military affairs; Daniel Poneman, special assistant to the president from 1993 through 1996, who now is a principal at the Scowcroft Group; and Jeff "Skunk" Baxter, formerly of Steely Dan and the Doobie Brothers. Bob McNally was on drums and Jim Ehinger played the keyboard.
