I cannot actually believe the comments he made, were they justified? Please tell me this guy is a complete cunt as I have suspected for a long time now.
you can find clips of the audio on a Kinks forum if you google George Lamb Ray Davies.
Just because they don't "get" your unfathaomable on-air games you can't go around wishing people dead. Or in deed describing them as bonkers when they are bi-polar,
isn;t wishing people dead on air a big no no?
How about we all write in to the BBC to complain? the more complaints the better. Even better, what about to Offcom?
and edge-y and exactly what women want to listen to on the radio right? because women don't care about the actual music and hearing interesting things, such as a musician actually being interviewed? no no, what they really want is to know who ben gibbard's favourite ginger is.
has literally just been posted, I implore you all to follow suit!
fucking george lamb explodes.
Just for ideas. I may look up the code for acceptable behaviour on air and see how exactly it was breached. We shoudl all copy in the BBC as well.
Doesn't matter if he thought it was joke. Death and mental illness are big no no's, and the BBC are a public company who have to be accoutable.
...he's been a useless ignorant talentless cunt for ages...and is still allowed to broadcast.
I say we all chip in and have him done over...not killed, just done over enough so he can't speak (not that he's that good at it now)
he might have really screwed the pooch on this one.
did alex zane piss off after his enemy spat on xfm or did he just get a slap on the wrist?
im always changing my mind about lamb but getting angry at someone because they dont dig your keeeeerazeey questions and irreverant style makes him look like a fucking tit.
if he just laughed at davies and took the piss it would have worked in his favour but now he just looks like he's got scary uncle syndrome...(y'know like the uncle that jokes around but one day snaps withtout warning...noel edmonds is the archetype)
He was still taking the piss in the morning and then a few records were played back to back and he did an on air apology.
The NME that the interview happened weeks ago and not this morning?
on everybody's bonfire, sir.
I'll kill him with my own hands
I was appalled to hear George Lamb make a comment about Ray Davies on his breakfast show today, following a telephone interview.
Mr Davies, a sufferer of bipolar disorder, was called an "old guffer" and Mr Lamb made the remark of "(it) might come back to you and you might die a horrible death" in reference to Mr Davies' breakdown in relationship with his brother.
These callous comments were made after the interview had been terminated in an unprofessional manner.
It seemed Mr Lamb took offence that his immature style of questioning was not being 'taken on' by Mr Davies and he reacted in an entirely unprofessional way that will have caused offence not only to Mr Davies himself, but also the listening public.
I hope that appropriate action will be taken against Mr Lamb.
is exactly what he wants?
I've been watching the Lamb-hate on here with bemusement but he's crossed a line this time. Nobody slags off Ray Davies in my presence and lives.
him or his team of auto-laughing fuckwits
lamb may be a bit of a twat, but a good friend of mine did an producer internship with him for 6 weeks, and said he had a great time. He's by no means a auto-laughing fuckwit.
his team are the auto-laughing fuckwits
He's just a nightmare to listen to, and we want him OFF!!
...how the HELL did he get away with that last line!? that's fucking insane.
that he couldn't get any worse
I was wrong.
That is fucking disgraceful, who is that tit Lamb to think he could be so horrible to such a legendary musician as Davies is, why he's still on the air is beyond me.
he'd have to murder someone live on air for them to actually sack him. there's no way 6music are gonna back down on this.
It doesn't mean a thing to him I shouldn't imagine. It's more to do with it being another reason to add to the list for the many people that would like to hear something a bit better during those three hours. The off switch is there for a reason but then if people indicate that there's tolerance for this sort of stuff then we could very well end up with more of it.
get him out!
that's not going to happen - or if it does, it'll just mean more of him on TV. The 'powers that be' have him pegged as the new Russell Brand.
i think he's alright on the telly. just on the radio he's a sack of shit.
Keep this ill educated spunk guzzler on big brothers big mouth. absolute dick head. this makes me so happy...
Interview is on there
NME has dropped the news item for some reason.
No one should be allowed to get away with that. It's not even justified, Ray Davies hardly did anything to deserve anything like that.
does his family think him a twat as well?
The interview itself was yer fairly standard unfunny wacky yoof presenter fare, but the comments afterwards were...something else. He really went ON and ON and ON! What a tool...
ray davies was being a difficult tossbag and george lamb had a go at him. what's wrong?
garbage, the guy is a dick!
tell me ray wasn't being difficult.
As a result of being asked if he was bald and what his favourite vowel was.
I'd be pissed off too if I thought I was going to be speaking to a respectable DJ from a respectable radio station, only to have the piss taken out of me.
he IS nathan barley for people that though nathan barley was funny while, erm, actually being nathan barley, erm, innit. He seems to be actually encouraged by the number of people calling him a cunt! We should all send him packets of love hearts...
...laced with anthrax...
