I am sorry if this has already been asked before (I was here) but I was wondering, did any of the members ever get arrested for anything during their carreer? Drugs, violence or whatever?
I have never heard or read anything about it....
This is the extract from the official biography, As It Began:
Roger, a keen fan of fast cars and motor racing, was invited to be a guest at the Monaco Grand Prix, an offer he had to accept. He went to Monaco with Crystal and Rick Parfitt, who was also a racing fan. Putting those three together was probably a mistake, as the sunshine, racing cars and a little too much wine resulted in Roger being arrested. It was nothing more serious that inebriated high jinks, but Jim Beach had to be summoned from holiday in Montreux to Monaco to pay the quite substantial fine to release him from jail. Then he had to get out of Monaco within a matter of hours, a condition of his release, and as there were no immediate flights out, Jim had to arrange for a chartered helicopter to collect them all.
Btw, Phil Collins is great! But Seriously has some great songs, sad but strong, full of emotions. And his voice is great too.
"Phil Collins is the man, man."
I agree. Face Value is an awesome album made all the more remarkable when you watch the Video “Classic Albums – Face Value” and hear the song “Please Don’t Ask” (a brilliant song which was left off the album) and the original version of “The Roof Is Leaking” which had Eric Clapton playing slide on the Dobro – stuff that Phil said himself that should have been kept on the album.
As for arrestments, I don’t know about Queen members other than those stated, but the Trident guys should have been!!
I love "Nevermind the Bollocks, Here's The Sex Pistols"!! You can't compare at all but I listen to it much more than to Hot Space, which I have actually never really listened to closely...
Sex Pistols were great. Can't listen to them all the time but from time to time they're fun listening to.
Not comparable to the CLASH who I could listen to 24/7 and who were one of the greatest bands ever!
