Still in denial Kudo :grin:
I certainly don't know his inner arse soul as well as your tongue does so you can go back to burying that arse licking head back in the sand now. :wink:

To be honest though JJ is easily read like a book and if you take a step back from idolising him and stop worshiping the floor he walks on like a teenager it becomes more obvious of what he's motives are.
Think Tank, you weren’t a recipient of a Banana off JJ on stage back in the 80’s were you?
Just let it go mate :wink:

Btw didn’t JJ & Hugh say there were many Bananas going up multitudes of bottoms at Stranglers gigs in the 80’s?

I thought that might have something to do with all the JJ haters on here but from what I saw it was JJ who only held the Banana recipient. It was actually Hugh who was doing all the hide the Banana stuff and occasionally hide the Chocolate Eclair too.

:shock:

If the band were still together in their original line up then JJ would be saying the complete opposite and boasting about still being together.
I thought i had already put this but i must have forget . Indeed but not only boasting but slagging off other bands for having different keyboard player and a different guitarist and a different drummer and a different lead singer for the third time.

JJ cant do no wrong to you Kudu , your just a fan that closes his eyes puts his fingers in his ears and sings la la la to any criticism or shit that the band comes up with. Carry on blindly playing follow the leader and being a Tommy fan.

Sorry Kudu but i cant take you seriously

Think Tank wrong on so many fronts,I have criticized the band in the past and still do,no blind allegiance for me,and if you mean Tommy yes I loved Tommy Trinder back in the day as obviously you do to.Major Kudu.

JJ must feel a little uncomfortable with this Stranglers 50th anniversary stuff even though he will never admit to it.It's a bit like celebrating a 50th wedding anniversary with a third wife,from the day married to the first one

Yes a very good analogy and I agree it won't feel totally comfortable or indeed right for him. Of course he won't admit it.
Its different if they were a force all of their own and were writing music that stood well above everything else leaving Hugh just a distant memory but as you so well put JJ still prefers to go on exististing / celebrating with his first wife. :grin:
