poor adam thinks people still care -hes clearly delusional
2002-01-16 10:39:06 AM  
All these people who don't care but take time out anyway. How sweet.

Someone should run a website that keeps track of all the minor 80s icons and what's happening to them. You could run a "deadpool" kind of thing, except that it would keep track of who's in jail, who's gone crazy, who's getting on Behind The Music, etc.

For instance, I would have had Billy Idol picked for the nuthouse, but he's done OK for himself... *shrug*

Shakin' Stevens was pulled for DWI at 2am on New Year's Day.

White cowboy hat? Gawd...he really has lost it.
2002-01-16 10:57:05 AM  
I remember seeing him on "the equalizer" when I was a kid and thinking "he's lost it" it would appear that medical opinion now agrees with me :o)
2002-01-16 10:57:19 AM  
pretending that he's Al Green ... Al Green.

real name Stuart Goddard...

I'd go crazy too if my parents named me Stuart.
2002-01-16 11:03:42 AM  
Let's see:

Adam Ant's gone mad.
Shakin' Stevens is being done for Drink-Driving.
Bush is back on the sauce/"choking on pretzels"
Harry Windsor is a freak.

What the fark?
2002-01-16 11:04:15 AM  
And if your surname was the same as Liza "Give Us A Clue" Goddard
2002-01-16 11:05:18 AM  
Has anyone cottoned on to the fact that, now Harry's done pot, his dealer could display the Royal Crest and be "By Appointment..."

2002-01-16 11:05:40 AM  
Limey twit. And while we're at it, the Beatles can get farked, too.

Boorite: If you're going to talk like that then you can bloody well have Maddona back.
2002-01-16 11:10:58 AM  
Now now Boorite, there's no need to sink that low.
2002-01-16 11:14:26 AM  
Whatever happened to the rest of the Ants?
Let's see...

Johnny Tibbs,
And yours truleee.
From the naughty North,
To the sexy South,
We're all singers (but),
I got the mouth!
2002-01-16 11:23:17 AM  
I believe some of the Ants went on to work for Bow Wow Wow
2002-01-16 11:25:35 AM  
Touche, Goatman. We probably don't want to get into a debate over who is the biggest exporter of horrid culture. I mean, I could bring up Mr. Bean, Benny Hill, Oasis, the Royal Family, Riverdance, Celtic rock, and the entire British Invasion, but then I'd be begging you to read America its pedigree.

Bass555 - I thought it was the other way around.

This is sad. Maybe he should call Mariah.

Jacko could intervien and take him to neverland.

Adam says: "I wish I had a real gun so I could shoot Myself"
2002-01-16 11:41:18 AM  
Boorite: What's wrong with Mr. Bean?
2002-01-16 11:46:26 AM  
"don't step on an ant he's done nothing to you

There might come a time when he's treding on you

don't step on an ant you might end up black and blue

cut off his head legs come looking for you....

Ant music - adam and the ants from the album (yes I said album) kings of the wild frontier

Intro drum beat to track Kings of the Wild Frontier

RandyRat: My point exactly.

Celebrity on the skids snapping syndrome.
2002-01-16 12:32:00 PM  
come on guys...for some of us late 20 somethings early 30 somethings(kisd of the 80's) picking on adam ant is allmost like pissing on the pope...sure the guys a bit wacked,so you've never done too many drugs or drank a bit too much???
2002-01-16 12:45:29 PM  
Well, Hoopyfrood, in this case I'd agree but I never liked Adam Ant. I preferred Toyah. She's now a teletubbie.
2002-01-16 12:50:50 PM  
Hoopyfrood: Thank-you! To me Adam is wonderful (no pun intended). I wish I knew where all of those life-size posters I used to have are...

SatchmoR beat me to the rhythm, damn! Do any AntPeople still need AntMusic? Huh? Huh?

You're all missing the real question. When they got the poor boy into his skivvies for his new soft hospital gown, did he sing at them:

"If I strip for you, will you strip for me?"

Looney or no, I think he's kinda cute.

"You know I have one simple request and that is to have sharks with freakin laser beams attached to their heads..."
2002-01-16 09:07:13 PM  
...There must be something inside.
2002-01-16 09:35:33 PM  
I loved ADAM ANT in the 80's. Its not too late, he could come back! I want my MTV and ANT MUSIC!
