    I only like Never Mind the Bollocks. The contractual fulfilment stuff like this desperately sad I’m afraid.

    that is the desired effect ,cheesy, out of time and and very off key. did you think that it really was going to be something EMI would want on it's label? Self parody an you want it to be something serious when called the great rock and roll swindle.
    Steve Jones Standing on a conference room table whipping his ass with the contract in front of the gathered executives?
    With a long history of mocking the audience at their last gig at Winterland from the stage Johnny Rotten saying:
    Did you ever get the feeling you'd been cheated?

    I share Johnny's opinion of the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame. Que Monty Python, " what a stupid concept".
