BostonHerald.com - Music News & Reviews: Hall of Fame? A Rotten idea! Pistols refuse to pony up dough for award show
The Sex Pistols, due to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next month, fired off a nasty missive yesterday, refusing to appear at the induction ceremony in New York.
The seminal British punk band released a handwritten statement through its publicist and its Web site (thefilthandthefury.co.uk) blasting the Hall of Fame for asking the Pistols to pay $25,000 for a table or “$15,000 to squeak up in the gallery,” at the event.
Peppered with misspellings, the message likens the Hall of Fame museum to “urine in wine” and “a load of old famous.”
“Were (sic) not coming,” the band wrote. “Were (sic) not your monkeys and so what?”
Ever the Punks :) good going Pistols!! That's a lot of dough to fork over!! So with Sabbath not performing, The Sex Pistols not showing up, the whole show will be just Blondie's and Skynyrd's. Wonder what Debbie Harry will say if anything about the Pistols.
