Not in touch with modern music!

Had this debate with a few friends on the way to Hugh's gig in Southend. Why don't bands like the Stranglers, the Clash, Blondie etc exist anymore? Modern/chart music is just so man made. Put together for one purpose, to earn loads of money for the promoter. No soul, no lyrics and no feeling. I gues...

JJ + John Lydon + Juke Box Jury

Perhaps someone could shed some light on this. Just casting my memory back to the late seventies, the panel of Juke Box Jury were reviewing a Stranglers song (can't remember which one), John Lydon was on the panel at the time and was rather rude and critical about the Stranglers, little did he know ...

Can never work out........

I can never work out why the Stranglers have never received the praise they deserve. They are an intelligent bunch of guys, plus they are musicians who can write fantastic music. Most other groups who have these qualities are highly recognised. Yes, I know I'm a Stranglers/HC fan, but these guys tru...

Do you know which Triumph JJ is riding these days?
Last time I saw him on his Triumph was at the last Stranglers convention, can't remember which Triumph it was though.

He's riding the RS, I spoke with him recently, however, he quite likes the Speed Triple

JJ and Triumph

Been trying to get Triumph to do a big article on JJ within their owners club mag. JJ has done a lot for the brand and always been a keen supporter of Triumph.

Hi there just joined this great forum

Hi Guys, just joined and wanted to say HELLO! Been a Stranglers fan from day 1 and pretty much go and see them and Hugh when I can. Still not got over the loss of Hugh from the band, yes I know I'm a sad old git, but pleased to see JJ has made a return to the vocals. Never a great fan of Mr Roberts ...
