Forbes is reporting that Gary Glitter’s anthemic Rock and Roll, Part II won’t be played at games this year. Unless you’ve been under a rock somewhere, you’ve heard that the rocker who owes his royalties to NFL teams throughout the U.S., has been twice convicted of crimes related to child pornography. The album and single were never massive hits and Part II remains the only Top 10 song of Glitter’s career.
Sometimes, like Dennis Miller said, you have to cull the herd. While recognizing that Glitter has an illness, increasing the popularity of his music doesn’t help. While the NFL may take some criticism for this move, I think they did the righ thing.
Spinning In The CD:
My wife just came home from a day of garage sales and antiques with a boxed set of Motown LPs. The CD goes away today.
