The Prince of Punk
I hope you'll forgive my neglectfulness of this blog over the last few days, but the truth is that I've been so wrapped up with other stuff lately, that I really didn't have anything interesting to say. So I decided to completely go against my nature and just shut the hell up for a bit.
Instead I offer you this wonderfully condescending fairytale by Jo Brand, about the Prince who put frogs to shame. Sid Vicious, Prince of Punk! Revered by teenage wannabe rebels (I shamefully admit that there was a time when I actually put a safety pin through my ear... Yes I was pathetic!), unwashed rodents like "Donny Tourette", and fans of auto-mutilation, heroin and bad music alike.
Why do only the good die so young? For shame...
