Did you know he discovered Oasis, btw?
god i miss kansas.
i had to stop following him on twitter, he was getting still annoying. does he still <3 you?
the last two weeks or so of his updates just vanished, and he's gone back to being vaguely sane. so either it was a hack or he just had a senior moment that lasted about four days.
He admitted: "I really like what Calvin Harris does.
They have always been run by self-interested execs (even though I refuse to accept that those execs don't care about music).
I do like how the rant turns nasty too, with killing baby Mika and JLS. And then goes on to say how "Earthsong" is a good song.
"McCartney should retire"
"You don't have 66-year-old football players. There's a reason for that."
"I really like what Calvin Harris does."
"Calvin is cool and I love Muse. I think Robbie Williams's latest stuff is quality pop music, though it is not my thing."
"The really sad thing is that I don't even know what some of these songs that are being nominated sound like."
"It has never been worse apart from the 1950s but at least then they had Elvis."
"The year Oasis won everything was pretty good."
"There are the obvious bands who were discovered there like Oasis, Radiohead and Glasvegas and I'm sure there a few others."
"But even if it was only Oasis, it would still be a huge moment for British music."
"I signed The Hives to Creation and the first gig I saw them at was when they played there."
What is there to get? It's just Madonna with new costumes.
"The outspoken Scots music mogul unleashed a volley of insults towards artists from Coldplay to Paul McCartney, insisting rockers should retire at 40."
but he goes on to nullify all his opinions by blasting british pop culture while really liking Robbie Williams' work...
when their only solution is "...he should be shot."
Don't get me wrong it's not that I don't want people to get shot, or have a particular anything against firearms, it's just if your going to dismiss something, use a little bit of humour and variation.
If you say "...he should be shot." 50 times in a piece, well then your just gonna look a bit dumb.
