Talking about throwing, and I'm employing a wonderful quote here, what has he ever done except throw his baby off a fuckin’ ledge and write a song about it?
Yeah, I agree with Muse, his voice is quite puny. They really showed what they were all about with that Olympic song; that swiftly got put to the bottom of the pile.
Gn'R put out some great songs. Probably got overrated for a bit but I do feel they were the last great rock band to have come out.
Negative, Mr Gaurav. Nirvana, Oasis, Radiohead and The Libertines were long after GNR, all great rock bands.
Who else? I remember talking to someone on here about Weller, that man is a tool. He thinks he talks for a generation but just represents a collection of delusional, moped cuddling geriatrics.
He was talking all this bollocks about New Labour liberalism and Etonians in the cabinet in G2 magazine: he just left his wife and kids for a young girl, sends his kids to a private school and talks in ferocious cliches: "Oh I've been in love – but not like this." Yeah every old codger thinks that Paul when he's got his piece in a young bit off ass. Guy doesn't have a clue about society.
Morrissey, too, he would have been nothing without Johnny Marr but like to think otherwise. Overrated and fanny pad, what an awful combination. Oh yeah, Lou Reed, guy thinks he is a T.S. Elliot /John Donne hybrid. I was appalled by the Metallica collaboration, utterly appalling.
