We all knew Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees had been battling cancer, but GOD. Enough is enough. F*cking cancer has taken TWO people from my high school memory bank this week, and it sucks. First Donna Summer, at age 63 and now Robin Gibb, at age 62. That’s too goddamned YOUNG to die.
“The family of Robin Gibb, of the Bee Gees, announce with great sadness that Robin passed away today following his long battle with cancer and intestinal surgery,” reads the statement. “The family have asked that their privacy is respected at this very difficult time.”
The Rolling Stone article is actually really great. Click on the link. This is just too sad…
It’s that time of year again where we make every kind of list possible! What’s the most-used toilet paper for 2011? That kind of thing. Obviously though, we’re gonna have the Top Baby Names. I swear, if I hear the name AidenONE MORE TIME…
I HAVE taken legal action against Noel Gallagher for statements he made claiming Oasis pulled out of the 2009 V Festival Chelmsford gig because I had a hangover.
That is a lie and I want Oasis fans and others who were at V to know the truth.
I was gutted when I couldn’t play the gig because I didn’t want to let the fans down.
But the truth is I had laryngitis, which Noel was made fully aware of that morning, diagnosed by a doctor.
Noel also falsely stated the demise of Oasis followed a massive row in which he claimed I demanded to advertise my clothing range Pretty Green in the Oasis tour programme.
The truth is there was no such discussion or row between us.
I am used to being called all sorts of things by Noel and I have in the past said things about him. But what Noel has alleged this time went way beyond rock-and-roll banter and questioned my professionalism.
I tried to resolve this amicably but have been left with no choice but legal action. All I want is an apology.
Seriously, that’s funny. (As an aside, IT’S ONLY FUNNY WHEN THEY AREN’T YOUR ADULT SONS.) Still, though. I’m belly-laughing at these giant toddlers.
What about the gossip that Liam insinuated that Noel wasn’t the daddy of his baby while the two bickered backstage at the 2009 V Festival? Man, that wasn’t cool.
I smell a counter-lawsuit–and it smells like warm beer and a two-finger salute.
