    Ever think of what happened to a certain band? Or what a certain musician has been up to? Who are the most infamous people to just slip from mainstream attention to not being heard of again? I heard this Dublin singer/songwriter last years called Colm Lynch but haven't heard anything about him since. Anyone know if he is recording?

    good idea though! just for the discussion it would generate, i'd like to nominate coldplay, oasis, and (shudder) the Stereophonics man the stereophonics are essentially a boy band now, "oooh the Killers are doing well, we'll write a song like them, oooh we're incredibly boring and lack any creativity", ugh!

    Shaun Ryders problems have actually been financial. He hasn't been earning any income for the last couple of years because of some really dodgy contract he signed with his former management. Its all sorted now and he'll be able to earn money from any new material he produces (but not his back catalogue) so I expect we will hear something from him soon. Some live dates at the very least.

    Yes, doing every drug in sight does hit the old financials somewhat.

    Well yeah, but not in the way you'd think. Its not so much supporting a huge habit, apparently the whole crux of the case is that his managers got him out of his head on "recreational pharmaceuticals" and then presented him with the contract to sign. He lost the case, but settled the dispute in the end. He's surely kicked the habit now? or at least kicked back on previous excess? I don't think he would be still alive if he hadn't!

    apparently he's had a number (5 if memory serves) of those stomach blocker things put in, (they make you sick whenever you take drugs-ish) but had them all taken back out, i would be very surprised if he was clean. He may not be a crack head anymore, but to be honest that wouldnt surprise me. He did write some good lyrics though, and he brought Bez's dancing to the world, and that's no bad thing

    I've got this weird hunch that 'Chinese Democracy' is actually going to be a masterpiece! Can you imagine after all the stick Axl has got, he just pulled out a f**kin great album? That would be amazing! Here's hoping. I miss G&R :( Most people fade away when they get s**t or addicted, which is pretty obvious.

    No, he just "liked the way the swastika looked" or something, he was into all that eastern stuff as I recall and a version of the symbol is used in one of the religions over there.

    the swastika was a symbol in ancient Rome, don't know about eastern symbolism. Anyway, he seemed like a twat, although 'Hush' was a good song.

    Actually, it figures both in Hinduism and Buddhism and is a symbol for good luck. Any entry level warlock would know that.

    Was thinkin about all those Britpop/rock bands a few days ago. I used to watch the ITV chart show in the mid 90s and you'd often see the new video by Headswim or Rialto or Symposium, etc. There's a looong list of bands and singers from that time who've disappeared off the face of the earth, leaving only second hand Shine compilations in their wake...
