ISN'T THIS GETTING A BIT ABSURD?
When UK Steve passed on this piece of intelligence from Yahoo News my feelings were, to say the least mixed.
“Councillors in Stoke-On-Trent are reportedly considering erecting statues of Lemmy from Motorhead and Slash after being petitioned by rock fans wanting to honour local heroes.”
The following thoughts passed through my mind in rapid sequence…
1) Aren’t municipal statues the kind of thing we used to struggle against? As in part of the problem?
2) Even if we accept the statue thing, neither Lemmy nor Slash are exactly Che Guevara, Abe Lincoln, or he Duke of Wellington.
3) Okay so Elvis and Buddy Holly have statues in their home towns, but at least they’re dead.

The secret word is Huh?
