Well, well, that's the first time I've ever hung on to every word of a post on this forum.....need a stiff drinkie now boy.......gulp....AAAH, that's better. smile

Not wishing to recreate a sh*t-slinging session again regarding Billy Currie on this forum, but it was obvious to all who had some common sense that there was a lot of foundation and reason [not excuse] for Billy's recent comments on his website regarding the LIVE AID dvd release. Even Billy's comments above may annoy, shock, stagger certain people on this forum but I'm glad he's put his ten pence worth in the mixer. There's lots of contrasting opinions, accusations etc and whether or not anything becomes of this is another matter. Again, I'm as happy as anyone that Billy did appear and speak up. Now, not trying ti lick William's arse or nowt a must say that I personally have always thought Billy was more talented as a musician than Midge ever was.
Don't get me wrang tho'.....av got plenty o' time for 'Some' of Midge's tunies, but not many.

A great popular 'Misconception'. The opinion that a 'Frontman' is the most popular and talented band member....no thanks !!!

On a first visit to Midge's chatroom the other night I found it occupied by seven guests, all ladies <img border="0" title="" alt="[Cool]" src="cool.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Cool]" src="cool.gif" /> The pig joins in and immediately felt like a thorn atween sivven rose buds shocked The subject matter was suddenly Billy vs Midge vs TALENT. On waiting my turn and then giving my opinion [ as above, biased towards Billy] I was strangely challenged with an air of anger by one young damsel who fired the opening salvo.....

"Well, has Billy Currie had a solo number one hit like Midge has, I THINK NOT. No way is he more talented than Midge"

To which I replied.......

"So then, your opinion leads me to think that a person who has a number one hit is more talented than a person who hasn't had a one, yes ???
Well, if that's the case, JOE DOLCE has had a number one hit, ULTRAVOX never did [and we all know why <img border="0" alt="[Pissed]" title="" src="graemlins/pissed.gif" /> ] My point being....does that make JOE DOLCE more talented than ULTRAVOX ??/

I rest my case wink

Finally, there's no particular message about what I've just said. Only, the world revolves on opinions and differences. You can't please everyone all the time eh. Some people will agree with Billy's comments, others may not.
One things for sure though, it makes bluddy gud readin......


Keep it up sunna !!!! <img border="0" alt="[Angel]" title="" src="graemlins/angel.gif" /> [/b]
How interesting is it reading through the archives! I have to laugh - yes that is so dumb re number ones v talent - I think I can guess where that came from - having hung out round the forums a while ho hum......
