Do ya wanna be in my gang?
« on: 20 March, 2016, 08:07:36 AM »
I was thrift shopping the other day and while browsing the cds I came across Garry Glitter (not like that ya pervs)

And I was half temped to buy it. Well it was cheap. And I did like that song rock and roll part 2

But then of course there is the whole thing of him being a ya know and all

So yeah. I'm not supporting the artist by buying a cd second hand. But I still didn't feel comfortable getting it. Anyone know what I'm on about?

If you looked harder I'm sure there was a Jim'll'Fix It annual or Paint With Rolf book there you could have had to read while listening to a man who spent his spare time fucking kids. Or you could just accept that the world would be a better place if these scumbags had never existed and throw the lot in the bin.

I should add that I didn't end up buying it.

Hey, my bookshelves are stocked with the works of racists, classists, sexists and homophobes, who am I to judge.

You could always just listen to it for free on Youtube.  Fuckface Glitter gets nothing, and you don't own a spiritually soiled item. Just don't go round singing it on buses.

Steven Tyler and Jimmy Page are also both paedophiles, but nobody seems to care.

Also Tom Jones, allegedly.  I can sort of see Steven Tyler getting away with it, though, as people are likely to turn a blind eye to your proclivities when you make such a great contribution to our culture.

As with Lostprophets, I feel sorry for the co-writers and band members of these nonces.

Steven Tyler......paedophiles, but nobody seems to care.

http://www.feelnumb.com/2011/01/22/steven-tyler-once-had-14-year-old-girlfriend-that-her-parents-signed-over-to-him/

She was 16, and not 14, when they met and this was the age of consent at the time.

It only takes about 10 seconds to research that story a little further to find that out.

This was where I read it originally. You could be right; I don't know - it seems that accounts differ.

Indeed - read an interview with her a few years ago where she says she was 16. However there is a video interview she did where she refers to her being under-age. So her own accounts differ.

Eitehr way, there does seem to be a vaguely (or not vaguely) sinsiter double standard as to who gets to be binned - I still hear the Mamas and Papas on the radio for example ...

Well, you did start a thread about a convicted paedophile...
