Depeche Mode Cancels Tel Aviv, Israel Concert


I remember Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones snarling defiance at the jihadists after the Bali bombings, which had prompted Paul McCartney to cancel an Oz tour.

I say to Osama and the boys bring it on, evaporate me. If it gets to the stage where these guys are dictating if we rock or not, then forget about it. If McCartney uses these guys as an excuse, he should give it away. Don't give them the power. I can't wait to tour Australia, even if they take out my plane on the way there.

That's the voice of someone who was conceived during the Blitz for you...

  1. Um, are't Keith and Paul of roughly similar vintage, with Keith being the younger? Of course Keith is a Londoner and Paul a Mersey man.

    I suppose another factor in Keith's attitude may be the comfort he takes in being smashed out of his mind on one substance or another.

    But yeah, I'll still hand it to him for his "better to die on your feet than live on your knees" attitude.
