Ste,

I liked this part:

Quote:
The 61-year-old former singer said he had only let the girls into his bed because they were "scared of ghosts" and that he never slept with anyone under 18.
Oh okay, that explains everything. Silly me <<>>, I thought he was a pedophile.

This link is better, read the comments of the public.

Asked what he would think of a middle-aged man who engaged in sexual acts with an 11-year-old, he said: "Certainly it would be a crime. I don't have the words. I would be very angry about that, extremely angry."
Unless the middle aged man was him!

That's why I made the point about complaining to stadiums, etc, who use his song. In fact, it would be a great campaign for someone...maybe a few of us can get together and do a quick letter writing campaign?

Trying to get it banned has been tried over here. I appealed to OFCOM our communications watchdog but they did nothing as the song contains nothing that could be construed as obscene, but you very rarely hear Glitter or King on radio nowadays, thank god because I get flashbacks whenever I hear anything by them or the Bay City Rollers or Golden Earing come to that.

I have a more eclectic taste in music.

Golden Earings "Radar Love" was picked up and promoted by Denning, I was one of the first people to hear it, that was part of his grooming technique with muzos like me, trapped completely because I love music.

Nobby raises a good idea:

We have all seen the power of public opinion. If the proponents of an idea sit in silence, nothing will ever change.

Nobby, if you do organize something like this I will definitely contribute a letter.

Much love,
Larry

I'll draft up a letter and post it. If nothing else, we will raise awareness...

Anyone else interested? Do we send it under a pen name? I suggest: "Everything that Glitters is not Gold" or "Make Glitter Bitter."

If anyone wants to think up a serious name I'm all ears.

Here it is, in draft. If anyone has a better grasp of the facts of Gadd's earlier crimes I'd appreciate a review, to ensure we don't get sued for defamation...Let me know what you think.

Campaign Against "Rock and Roll #2"

Dear Sir/Madam;

We are writing to you today to express our concerns regarding the public exhibition of the song "Rock and Roll (Part 2)" by Gary Glitter.

Gary Glitter, whose real name is Paul Gadd, is a serial pedophile and has been arrested and jailed in both the United Kingdom and Viet Nam for various crimes against children. In Viet Nam, Mr. Glitter was convicted and jailed in March 2006 for sexually abusing two girls aged 10 and 11. He is currently incarcerated in Viet Nam for these crimes. In 1999, Mr. Glitter was jailed in the UK for the possession of child pornography. Mr. Glitter was found in possession of over 4,000 pictures of young children being sexually abused. According to British authorities, some of the children in these pictures were as young as 2 years old.

We are engaged in a campaign to raise public awareness of Mr. Glitter's crimes. We feel that the exhibition of "Rock and Roll (Part 2)" at public events serves to condone Mr. Glitter's crimes against children, and we respectfully request that you consider discontinuing the playing of this song at your events out of respect for Mr. Glitter's young victims.

Sports teams and athletes are great role models for children, and we feel that your organisation provides a great service to the public and to children in particular. We ask that you consider your young fans when you consider whether or not to continue playing Mr. Glitter's songs.

Please note that we have also sent copies of this letter to: (media outlets, politicians, etc)...as part of our campaign.

Thank you very much for your time.

Sincerely,

xxxxxxxxxx
