Disgusted, Gullane

Having seen Grace Jones in action . . . Jesus Christ, Gary Barlow, what did you think you were doing? Why the hell did you let the lunatic on stage with the fucking hula hoop? Annie Lennox with angel’s wings was bad enough. Having said that, the whole Anglicised evening was the best argument for an independent Scotland that I’ve seen in a  long time. Apart from Ms Lennox, the significant contribution that Scotland has made to the British musical industry was completely ignored in the great Diamond celebration. With the greatest respect to Stevie Wonder, one of my heroes since he was Little Stevie Wonder, I must insist that Texas, Del Amitri, Travis, the Proclaimers, Emile Sande, Paolo Nutini, Aly and Phil, and many others, all belonged on stage before he did.

    Unfortunately Grace Jones was on stage when I switched on the live programme on Monday night so I turned it off assuming that was representative of the standard of the concert. My daughter subsequently told me that Robbie Williams, Tom Jones and McCartney’s Ob-La-Di, Ob-La Da were worth watching, so I recorded the highlights programme this afternoon and they were. Grace Jones was thankfully omitted. The angel’s wings on Annie Lennox and her supporting artists looked stupid and the ‘comedians’ were embarrassingly unfunny. I exclude Prince Charles from that criticism since he’s not paid to be funny.

    Mr. Grumpy, Gullane.

    Couldn’t agree more.Grace Jones was on stage when I turned on the live concert on Monday night so I immediately switched off. Subsequently heard some of the turns were good so I recorded the highlights programme this afternoon and found it pretty good. Grace Jones was omitted. The angel’s wings on Annie Lennox and her supporting artists were a bit silly and the comedians were excruciatingly unfunny. Prince Charles was the best.

    Mr Grumpy, Gullane.

      Obladi, etc also recorded by Marmalade, previously known as Dean Ford and the Gaylords, fae Coatbridge. Why they chose such tripe to round off I will never understand. However, Gary Barlow did his best, so Ferry Nuff.
