I saw an advert on the side of a bus today for a sci-fi film called Midnight Special, and under the title it said He's not like us. I so hope it is about Bernie sending Vince back in time from1985 to 1976 to replace Mick from the start of the band!

Happy birthday Vince.

All the best, Vince.

So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

He's provided enormous entertainment value to this board, and I still love his (mostly fictitious) book. Happy birthday, you sad imperialist/misogynist.

I certainly don't despise him, he's too sad a character. His book was a great read, he's just a bit of a racist/misogynist alcoholic.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

For a second I forgot what thread I was reading and thought you were referring to Jonah Hill.

I just find him a bit tardy on that throat-slitting he promised us.
