Even Sex Pistols go conservative when they become middle aged with kids.
Former Sex Pistols star Glen Matlock has called on British TV and radio bosses to stop broadcasting foul language -- even though his band launched to notoriety in 1976 by swearing on an early evening live UK television show ... spark[ing] nationwide outrage when they unleashed a stream of obscenities in response to presenter Bill Grundy's daring challenge to "say something outrageous".Yes, even Sex Pistols move to the right when they become middle-aged with kids. Is it any wonder Democrats are having problems winning elections?
However, Matlock -- now a father of two -- is disgusted by contemporary television's use of offensive words, and is urging TV and radio watchdogs to raise their standards and impose some much-needed guidelines.
He says, "It's pathetic when people just swear for the sake of it. Something ought to be done about it." [CM]
