Go on, die old

Mogwai have had a bit of a bad reaction to the tale of Keith Richards snorting his own dad's ashes. They've responded with an open letter:

Hi everyone. I just woke up to find that average blues guitar peddlar and all round unlikeable London pirate-like arsehole Keith Richard snorted his dad's ashes on a drug binge. Well done Keith, you talentless publicity hungry horrible prick of the highest order. He then goes on to say modern bands are a load of old crap. Right, but can we really listen to the opinions of a nasal cannibal?

Keith, your band are possibly the worst band in the history of human events, worse even than Placebo and The Reynolds Girls combined. Your posh English singer sings with an American accent about a load of old American prostitutes he met once and your guitar licks are Grade F. The sooner you die the quicker my Ladbrokes bet comes in between you and McCartney you old dick. I hope you kick the bucket in the most humiliating of ways, like on the toilet and then being eaten by your own dog. Stop living and give us peace you attention seeking non relevant oxygen thief.

Of course, it's an exaggeration. Ladbrokes wouldn't let you place a bet on the death of a famous person.

yeah... come to think of it, there was probably less disgust in the music press about the whole keef-snorting-his-dad-business than there was about the whole we-wear-kappa-and-don't-much-care-for-blur silliness...

and let's see if anyone knows who mogwai is in 6 months...

In fairness, I think most people who know who Mogwai are now will still know for the forseeable future.

And partly, isn't the point that Mogwai would probably be delighted to think that in a couple of generations people will be finding new thrills rather than still paying half a week's wages to see their grandad's favourite bands?

you're too confident, Simon... in two generations the kids will be spending their entire annual salary on seeing the still living The Rolling Stones... unfortunately, it appears they'll never die... still at least I'll always have New Paths to Helicon, Part 1...

With Keith Richards being carted around in a giant glass bottle...

when queried, keith couldn't say as he'd ever heard of a barry burns. after a few moments thought he did recall hearing of mogwai. his niece had a hamster by that name. tragically however it caught it's head on it's exercise wheel, 1st choking, then snapping it's widdle neck.
