The Stranglers ain't got no more Heroes - (Dont Care collection)
are in the news again today getting frontpage headlines in British Music weekly Melody Maker. Rock legend Pete Townsend of The Who takes a pretty passive snipe at the Stranglers for giving him some stick over playing stadiums and using laser shows. Don't these rock mags make a mountain outta a mohehill!
Townsend says: "For ostensibly intelligent people, not knowing what goes on behind the scenes of a rock group, or concert, condemning out of hand any band who plays in a football stadium, condemning out of hand any band who uses a laser beam, saying that rock groups don't pour money back into the businesss, it's all so much shit! I'd be embarressed about it, listing our achievements and showing the fucking big mouth in the stranglers how much we've given to charity."
They are also featured in a big interview in today's edition of Sounds magazine.
