its behind you!


what? Their careers...please fuck off...

Below are my personal choices of musicians and artists that should bow out and fuck off as they haven't produced anything of any quality for 30+ years and counting..

Here's 3 of them....

3)The Who...for the love of god please jack it in. You've made 5 star records and even as recently as the post 9/11 tribute you were a live act to be reckoned with BUT... Moon's dead, Entwistle's dead...its just Townsend and Daltrey, one would prefer to surf the web and the other with a fishing rod in his hands, these aren't the same people that rocked Woodstock. I understand why Pete Townsend is so eager to keep The Who going...the answer? His solo albums are ignored and filed in the dustbin...but why? he writes ALL The Who songs single handily so why would his solo songs be any worse? Who knows. He sticks The Who branding and LOGO on the sleeve and gets another million sales from the fans..that's why... Roger Daltrey has 1 vocal riff left..that's the "love reign o'me" thing he does in everything from "see me, feel me", "wont get fooled again"... "hope i die before I get old?"...before WE get old can you "die"....



2) Eric Clapton.... Eric..where did it all go wrong? Star guitarist for The Yardbirds, then John Mayall's bluesbreakers,then Cream...but then the problems started...they wanted you to go solo...your not a solo act...your a guitarist..you cant sing for shit and your songwriting is patchy at best..you have had some lovely moments during the Layla and 461 Ocean Boulevard period but generally it was just some blues covers then half arsed Band/J.J.Cale lite rubbish. Every 5-10 years you put out ANOTHER live or "blues" album where you murder the usual suspects. Your Robert Johnson covers album seemed a good idea on paper...until it was heard...it was boring as a bread sandwich.. great alive songs sounding like cliche ridden 12 bar plods... maybe you need a stiff drink, a line of coke and a good Saturday night..

1) PAUL MCCARTNEY!!! why are you still hear? I know you don't want to retire but you are the prime example of "trendy dad"...your an embarrassment. The Beatles are un-touchable and you have had some solo moments that do you proud but since "Band On The Run" and "Ram" in the early 70s you've just put out album after album of shit...Your fans (mainly clueless sheep like americans) who just blindly buy everything you do in an attempt to get some more beatles in their collections have to be disappointed. We all know you can play a multitude of instruments but do you really have to show this off every 10 mins just to show you can? Todd Rundgren, Prince, Stevie Wonder are all multi Instrumentalist far superior to you and they don't feel the need to mug it behind a drum kit whenever they get a chance to show off... Also the beatle bass...its a piece of Hofner shit that sounds like a toy. Its iconic granted and looked good in 64'...but we all know you used Fender, Rickenbacker and in the 80s even WALL basses..just put it in the hard rock cafe in a glass case and have done with it and while your there put yourself next to it...
