Musicians who romanticise criminals while demonising those who would download their music get smacked good by Jessica Parker:

Apparently itís OK to be a killer, a mass murderer, a pedophile, a rapist, a bank robber, a drug dealer, a hitman and an arsonist, but itís not OK to share Metallica MP3ís over the internet.

Thereís more. Go read. And check out JP's zesty pink site design.

You really should warn readers when a link leads to scantily-clad ladies.

Indeed, I must agree with Joe. If I'd known there where scantily/panty clad women over there I'd have checked it out sooner!

Oh, and nice phrasing that - get smacked good by Jessica Parker - that thought kept popping up while I was checking out her site.

I agree with the sentiments expressed above.

Well done, Mr. Blair. Thank you for the link.

How about concentrating on the issues?

Why would anyone expect rock stars to understand morality, except where their own pocket is involved? The best response is to rip Metallica off anyway you can, either off the Internet or by buying fake versions of their CDs and DVDs in places like Bangkok - that way giving employment to third world industries at the expense of overpaid turkeys. That's if you like the stuff they call music.

Same goes for Madonna, who anyway is probably about due for retirement to the twilight home for the terminally talentless.

Metallica makes me laugh. And that uppity little drummer is too much. Music for fourteen-year-old boys with more testosterone than they know what to do with, that's all. Let 'em download it.

Lars is no Vinnie Colaiuta.
