Nope.  Was Pete's own statement.
I actually took his full statement and forwarded it to my parents.
Out of the whole "I'm not a pedophile" defense, my dad focused on Pete's admission of using pornography.
He's from a different generation.  But, it is also not the best thing to say (even though it's the truth) while trying to deny pedophilia.

I'd be willing to bet that not one of us here could honestly say they have never used pornography.

What sucks, is that Rolling Stone prints it with "career-killer" before the statement.
Is this so?
*Is* it a career killer?

I have to say, I was watching the adds for the concert for George (George Harrison), and specifically the part with both Clapton and Macca playing, and wished that Pete were on stage with them too.
He should have been.
Where did things go wrong?
Pete used to be one of those folk in the upper echelon.
He belongs on the same stage as Clapton and Macca.
But, he's not.
Not even close.
You got to wonder what effect all of this ped. stuff has within his own peer circles.

You know, that guy that used to be here all the time.
Fucked up on politics?

You're right.
And, I may just be hyper sensitive to it now, now that I'm listening for it.
But, it's still a cool concept.
It fits and makes sense.  I had long wondered before Pete even said anything why many songs were geared to US fans.
Money talks.

Who's Freaking.

What dobbs that?

Do a bit of comparison between WN and Sell Out.
There is clearly restraint of English accent on WN.

>I just don't think that *not* hearing a British accent means that the Pete
>or Roger are singing *with* an *American* accent.

Hey, I'm not making this up.
Pete said they conscientiously sang with an American accent.
Stones too.
Compare (or contrast) that with the next generation of The Jam.

I can't.

Man, that sucks.
29" of snow !!! at my house (1,000') by Sunday night, with even more at the resorts (4,000ft).
And, of fucking course I was out boarding all day Sunday.
We call days like Sunday 'Snorkel Gear Day'.
And, I really could have used one.  
On top of that, the song burned into my head all day was.....
"It's smoooooth sailing with the highly successful sounds of wonderful..Radio..*London*!"

Had to plow my driveway 3 times.
Today, -10 deg. this morning.

I won't either!

I wonder if "Animal" from the Muppets has something to do with engraining that image.

Stay in Tune,
