I'm In A Rock 'n' Roll Band

Post by APOLLO79 » 22 May 2010, 23:13

Just watched the latest episode of this programme.Shouldn't be surprised really but no mention of
any of the band throughout the series.Took a quick peek at the website for tonights vote(best bassist)
and JJ's not on the list.Fuckin jokers!They're taking the piss putting Alex James of Blurt in the top ten
compiled by 'experts'..

....ps:They did play No More Heroes :shock:

Yeah very spooky, also very sad that two people in different parts of Scotland are half watching the same TV programme & on here at the same time on a Saturday night :(

2009 must have been the year for the sad 'nothing better to do on a Saturday night' people joining right enough :lol:

(not too sad though, have got a large glass of white merlot sitting by the laptop to keep me company) ;-)

It's really outrageous that none of the Stranglers have been mentioned on this programme yet. JJ was probably a big influence on Peter Hook etc. And how can Dave not be mentioned amongst the best keyboard players?

I don't see the point in playing 'Heroes' in the background if they weren't going to mention JJ & Dave amongst the bass & keyboard players.

But who cares we know who the best are & that's all that matters :smile:

Make that a third sad scottish person watching the same programme and thinking the same!! I was just ranting about the complete lack of stranglers in the series when they played no more heroes. I was also somewhat surprised that Flea didn't get a mention in the bassist programme

He's made the Top Ten bassists list though.

Biased as we are I do think it's a bit shocking that JJ didn't make an appearance - He is a bit of a standard mark when it comes to bassists. For example, Hooky who was on there always goes on about JJ.

The reason is simple though - They've clearly positioned this series for the American and UK markets and we all know that the Stranglers never made it over there.
