Incoming shmincoming. I see Amy is in the news again? Smoking crack apparently. Plod wants a word. And that Pete Docherty? What a frocking shambles. A face you couldnt get tired of hitting eh? Mind you, Back to Black was arguably the best album of 07, and Amys voice has been compared to Aretha Franklin and Billy Holiday. I dont have much time for Petes Babyshambles, but in the day, The Libertines turned out some decent tunes. It could be argued that their guerrilla marketing (impromptu gigs at fans houses, announced on the web at short notice) paved the way for the Arctic Monkeys and their rise to fame by Blogging? But they are both O2 thieves and should be hung from the nearest lamp post, right? So nobody will have any Babyshambles, Libertines or Amy Winehouse albums in their collection? Better throw out Billy Holiday too. The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Velvet Underground, The Doors, Led Zeppelin, Clapton every punk or hippy album ever made and George Michael while youre on? Youll be left with Sir Cliff Richards. Point is, some of the greatest music of the rock-pop era was created while the creators were so off their tits they didnt know if it was New Year or New York. The only difference was, the Stones didnt have to worry about Muppets with mobiles filming them and selling the vid to the Sun. Is it me, or is there a massive amount of hypocrisy going on here? If we buy the work of a junkie, do we have the right to batter that same junkie when they get caught out?
