“I’m Not That Guy” & “I’m So That Guy” – Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson
Music and Lyrics: Michael Friedman
Even presidents doubt themselves as these two songs demonstrate from this rock musical about Andrew Jackson who was born on this day in 1767. They paint the former U.S. president as a reluctant leader who finds his footing when nobody else will step up. Despite a controversial legacy, Jackson is usually considered one of America’s greatest presidents and now certainly one of musical theatre’s most interesting characters.
