Rock star John Hall -- the lead singer and songwriter for the group "Orleans" -- won the Democratic primary for Congress in his upstate New York district.
Orleans routinely makes the list of "Worst. Album. Covers. Ever." (see picture).
He co-wrote such hits as Still the One and Dance with Me for Orleans, and Half Moon for Janis Joplin.
He faces Republican incumbent Sue Kelly in a district that includes parts of Westchester, Putnam, and Orange Counties in the Empire State. (Editor & Publisher)
