Clash were too political, plus people are more tolerant of junkies theses days.

People sure held a grudge over "Cut the Crap."

I guess that's kind of cool, but is there anything more to this than simply giving them an award? Do they archive their music and memorabilia if they are considered to be an important part of music in the UK?

It's amazing how Oasis weaseled their way into being considered a legendary band. Is it some kind of cruel joke, like voting for a flea-ridden poor kid as "best-dressed" back in high school? Is it actually some kind of sarcastic British humor I'm unable to decipher?

I'm rather fond of Oasis while fully recognising the weird "let's be Beatley" thing and the Lennon obssession.

I think Damon Albarn won the competition for creative output though.

Not that he would care about any of this, but RIP Joe.

Yeah, drug use is clearly discouraged by the people who gave awards to David Bowie, Oasis, and Paul McCartney.

He meant the Clash. They kicked out their drummer Topper Headon because of his heroin addiction.

If McCartney still does anything harder than weed, I'm on drugs

ZZ9 Plural Z Alpha: He meant the Clash. They kicked out their drummer Topper Headon because of his heroin addiction.


And Topper wrote Rock the Casbah.  He talked about how much fun it was seeing the video for his song, with another drummer playing.

But none of those guys in that group could be considered choir boys.  One of Joe's biggest demons was tobacco. On the documentary about Joe, they talked about how his friends would mention quitting smoking and how Joe would just rail on them for bringing it up.  It was one of his soapboxes.

And a lot of musicians in that film lament the fact that Joe went a bit looney firing everyone, basically destroying the group in the process.  All the records that should've been made, but never did....kinda like Kajagoogoo!

And....has anyone seen Mick Jones lately?  YOWZA.  He ain't lookin' so good....(not that you could've ever called him a pretty boy)
