You Can't Always Get What You Want [May. 31st, 2010|10:04 am]
Tony Grist

In the summer of 1971 the Rolling Stones were recording their greatest ever album in the cellar of Keith Richards' villa on the Cote d'Azur. They were rich, they were famous, they were at the top of their profession- life was one endless house party- and what Bill Wyman chiefly wants to put on the record is how alienating it was that the local shops didn't stock his PG Tips and his Branston Pickle.

With the kind of money they were making, you would have thought he would have had the tea and pickle flown in specially. Besides, as I remember it, he should have been too busy messing around with under-age females to worry about Branston and PG Tips.

I think he probably did fly them in.

It's always amazed me that he got away with what he did.

If you're very, very rich and famous, you can get away with stuff like that (Bill Wyman) if you're not so rich and a has-been ... (Gary Glitter).

It seems so.

Though it looks like Polanski may be going down.

He may, but look at all of the notable people who signed petitions to keep him in Europe. Didn't see them circulating a Gary Glitter petition, now did we?

It wasn't just that they signed the petition, but that were happy to work with him all those years.

I see no moral difference between him and Gary Glitter.
