Maybe Rock Stars Do Grow Up

Hardwired into the human psyche is the tendency ascribe wisdom to our elders. Most of the time there is good reason for this. Their life’s experiences serve as a map to help those not as far along on the path.

This goes all to hell when that older person has been living a teenager’s life since 1965. If one is singing “I hope I die before I get old” at fifty-five, then there is some serious cognitive dissonance going on.

So this piece of news is especially refreshing:

The last thing the planet needs is a rock concert.

“I can’t believe it. Let’s burn even more fuel.

“We have problems with global warming, but the questions and the answers are so huge I don’t know what a rock concert’s ever going to do to help.

“Everybody on this planet at the moment, unless they are living in the deepest rainforest in Brazil, knows about climate change.”

The rocker, who used to sing about my g-generation, added: “My answer is to burn all the f***ing oil as quick as possible and then the politicians will have to find a solution.”

Roger’s comments come hot on the heels of SIR BOB GELDOF’s equally scathing views.

Last week the Live Aid hero lashed out, saying: “Why is Gore actually organising them? To make us aware of the greenhouse effect?

“Everybody’s known about that problem for years. We are all f***ing conscious of global warming.”

A Live Earth spokesman said: “People are aware of global warming but millions are not doing anything about changing their lifestyles.”

Somewhere, Roger Waters’ Messiah Complex just caused a vein in his forehead to bulge.
