I guess that makes it ok then.
2002-01-15 09:43:37 AM  
Maybe it would have been OK if someone he threatened had a fake heart attack.
2002-01-15 09:45:01 AM  
In other news: dildo attack classified as 'not really rape'.

We ask that you respect his privacy at this time, as the media was very quick to mention his place of residence, which is considered insensitive.

Asking just won't cut it. You must provide us with a free version of Ultra Hal Assistant on CDROM or his location will be released at 1100 hours.
2002-01-15 09:46:09 AM  
I know this is true, because it came from his personal web site...
2002-01-15 09:50:36 AM  
Stay tuned for more Antics along the comeback trail....
2002-01-15 10:00:24 AM  
well..I guess it's better than being caught whacking off in a public restroom..(George Michael)...but somebody's gotta manage these has-been 80's british rockers and tell them how not to do publicity stunts.
2002-01-15 10:01:07 AM  
In British law it doesnt make any differnce if the gun is real or not in this charge, although he wont also get charged with possesion of a handgun.

He is looking at 4 years if there are no extenuating circimstances.

Like Adam Ant really matters in the grand scheme of things....stupid story.

Move along.

Just when you think it's finished, with XTC on top..
antmusic, like a phoenix, threatens him with a fake gun...

I guess he's trying to be more like eminem than puff daddy..

"Adam was released shortly thereafter and is now resting from his ordeal."

Must be pretty exhausting re-enacting the love scene from Deliverance.
2002-01-15 10:24:06 AM  
adam ant- sucked back then, doesn't suck any less now.
2002-01-15 10:25:59 AM  
"He is looking at 4 years if there are no extenuating circimstances."

He's a former celebrity. Case dismissed.

"He's a former celebrity. Case dismissed."

Tell that to Jonathan King.
2002-01-15 10:31:08 AM  
Or Jeffrey Archer!
2002-01-15 10:53:37 AM  
Guess he was "Desperate, but not Serious"...

2002-01-15 10:56:22 AM  
MalibuPJ: yesssss, nice one...
2002-01-15 10:56:50 AM  
Don't drink, don't smoke, what do you do..
subtle innuendos follow, and then I pull a Magnum on your ass, muthafarker!
2002-01-15 11:01:16 AM  
"Stand and Deliver, your money or your....oh, shiat it's fake *runs away*...."
2002-01-15 11:03:05 AM  
I was wrong about Adam Ant. I thought he was a goody two shoes.
2002-01-15 11:09:16 AM  
Awww...he was all set on the comeback trail with his latest effort, Buy This or I'll Shoot You.

[image from cartoonnetwork.com too old to be available]

Fake gun....riiiiight.
2002-01-15 12:03:12 PM  
I hope his comeback is not harmed by recent events.
Heck the possibility of a Rick Springfield and Adam Ant double bill is exciting. "Scare em and Beat em tour 2002"
2002-01-15 12:21:30 PM  
Lucky for him, that he didn't point it at someone else with a fake gun and fake bullets, or he'd be faking his death.

Besides, I thought Atom Ant was a cartoon series.
2002-01-15 12:25:19 PM  
Why is everyone so surprised by this? After all, he is the Dandy Highwayman....
2002-01-15 12:54:17 PM  
I saw ADAM ANT in concert, back in the 80's. Why doesnt he just have a reunion concert like everyone else? 80's bands UNITE!
2002-01-15 02:27:32 PM  
probably 'cuz most of his band is dead at this point, perhaps?
2002-01-15 02:46:25 PM  
The horns on his records were fake, too.

Written and Composed by Adam Ant/Marco Pirroni


Friend Or Foe LP

----------------------------------------------------------------------​-------- --

With the heatbreak open
So much you can't hide
Put on a little makeup makeup
Make sure they get your good side good side

If the words unspoken
Get stuck in your throat
Send a treasure token token
Write it on a pound note pound note

Don't drink don't smoke - what do you do?
Don't drink don't smoke - what do you do?
Subtle innuendos follow
There must be something inside he's hiding

We don't follow fashion
That would be a joke
You know we're going to set them set them
So everyone can take note take note

When they saw you kneeling
Crying words that you mean
Opening their eyeballs eyeballs
Pretending that you're Al Green Al Green

No one's gonna tell me
What's wrong or what's right
Or tell me who to eat with sleep with
Or that I've won the big fight big fight

Look out or they'll tell you
You're a "Superstar"
Two weeks and you're an all time legend
I think the games have gone much too far

If the words unspoken
Get stuck in your throat
Send a treasure token token
Write it on a pound note pound note

Don't drink don't smoke - what do you do?
Don't drink...
2002-01-15 04:03:51 PM  
Well if he's charged, I guess he'll have to face the (Ant) music.
2002-01-15 08:13:53 PM  
maybe they should get the singer from bow wow wow on the jury...oh wait, she can't make up her mind =)
