I'm waiting to hear what Bez has to say on the subject.
 
2012-11-28 08:41:30 AM  
That's a really odd pose. It's like he is being probed somewhere we can't see.

Has the definition of 'Rock star' changed recently?

Did they drop from some kind of craft that looked remarkably like a DC-8?

Oh. Happy Mondays. Yeah, bigger deal in the late 80's and early 90's alt/post modern scene from Factory Records. See 24 Hour Party People.

Yes, this guy was a massive user. And I like there stuff from that period.

A few months back I was standing out on the back deck....it is around 9 or 10pm at night. No clouds and the sky is full of stars. I am looking up - trying to spot constellations - when I see this large dark V shape object fly overhead - silent, blocking out stars as it goes by. My heart races. I am tempted to run in and tell my wife to come out and witness this when I hear a faint sound: ronk. I strain to hear better as I watch the object float over: Ronk. Ronk. And then I see it.... it is a gaggle of geese flying at night in near perfect V formation. Boy - was I glad I didn't go running in the house to get my wife.

Thought for sure it was going to be the guy who took over for Roth in Van Halen(cant remember his name), he claimed to have seen UFO.s also.

Go listen to some of their stuff on Youtube. It's like a bad '80s movie montage.

You know, there was music made after 1976.

I just watched "24-Hour Party People," so I'm getting the obligatory kick...

It wasn't a great movie, but at least I've heard of Shaun and Bez.

Yes, because everything in the last 30 years is auto-tuned pap, and nothing during the heyday of rock was bubblegum.

"well, we've got a definite maybe from Nimoy"
"Not again!"
"OK, what about Shatner?"
"God no! Is he even still alive"
"I guess there's always Takei..... He'll do anything these days"
"Which one was he?"
"Uhura...err...Chekov.....I don't know, but the UFO nuts will get it"
"they're all too old hat, they have been around for ever doing voice overs for anything. I want..... I want someone new... Hip.... Someone the kids can dig..... how about a Rock and roll star?"
"We'll there's this one guy on the books,,,,,,, an ex-druggie singer from the 'Happy Sundays'.... he's up for any old carp these days. I hear they even sent him to Australia to eat bugs"
"Great..... we may even be able to swing the ex-druggie angle in our favour....... get me the newspapers"
"Newspapers? really?"
"No, maybe you're right........ get me 'The Sun', instead"

Is this like one of those things where British call it a lift, but Americans call it an elevator?

That is a funny name. I'd have called him a chazzwazzer.

Maybe the rockstar link comes from his voice acting on GTA San Andreas?

Goddamnit - I'm finally getting over the flu and didn't need that unexpected coughing fit...

I just finished his autobiography and he seemed like a pretty straight shooter, so I'm thinking this is just a headline grabber for him, either to promote the Mondays tour or he has a UFO special coming out. Or the drug abuse has taken hold and he's bonkers. Either way, meh.

I have a "Madchester" playlist (Mondays, Stone Roses, Inspiral Carpets, Charlatans) locked and loaded at all times on my ipod. Some of the best music ever produced, IMHO.


/ecstasy, it's a helluva drug
