Re: Sex Pistol Steve Jones on Instagram + Jonesy’s Jukebox

Funny you say he's friends with Ray Winston, I thought Steve's looks like Ray in Sexy Beast in some of his Instagram photos. :shock: I remember reading about the sex pistols reunion tours. They made a fortune from them, but the others had to travel separately to John, and stay in different hotels. I...

Re: Sex Pistol Steve Jones on Instagram + Jonesy’s Jukebox

He's having the time of his life over there, isn't he?

I've only heard a few of his radio shows,I should listen to more. He gets some good guests.

Re: RIP Pete Shelley

I don't know anyone who doesn't like the buzzcocks, that's some going for a punk band.

It's such sad news.

Re: Lets, like, just take a year off?

I guess it depends on the band's financial position to be able to take a full year off? Good point. The likes of U2, Radiohead and Coldplay will be spending extended periods not writing, recording or touring because they can afford it. The majority of bands need to keep working to pay the bills, th...

Re: Lets, like, just take a year off?

It's all of those artistic temperaments and strong egos that cause bands to make rash decisions that they can't back down from. At least the stranglers aren't suing each other like the new order lot. I suspect that the rolling stones have been close to splitting up - I get the impression that they a...

Re: Stranglers running songs

Am in training for the Bournemouth marathon in Oct. I am currently running 6:22m kilometers and the perfect beat for that pace is..... Toiler On The Sea! Are you running for a charity? I did in 2016 - raised 30k for Medecins sans Frontier - but this year just doing it for fun Wow, that's impressive...

Re: Who is making you laugh at the moment?

I like Stuart Lee, he always makes me laugh. I love the fake outrage about stuff you know he doesn't care that much about. But I can see how some would find him a bit laboured and repetitive. And he constantly paints himself as an outsider with no influence when he must be one of the better paid com...

Re: The Kinks are back!

I'm generally not a fan of reforming so long after a split. It's usually money grabbing, just nostalgia and an audience full of people who don't really like the music. But this is The Kinks. I can't believe that I might get the chance to see The Kinks play all the old songs. I don't care that it'll ...
