News: Sir Mick Jagger?
The British crown has spent
the last quarter century handing out titles to anyone in the entertainment
business who generates lots of tax revenue. Ok, it's not quite that bad,
but when we saw that Mick Jagger wasn't to be knighted like Paul McCartney
and Elton John, we collectively scratched our heads in wonderment.
According the the London
Times, Mr. Jagger will not become Sir Jagger as was expected this year.
Why not you ask? The Times puts British Prime Minister, Tony Blair, at
the head of the controversy. It is suspected that Mr. Blair does not think
Mr. Jagger exemplifies Family Values. In response to the report, the Prime
Ministers talking heads quickly denied that they were blocking Mr. Jagger
from becoming Sir Jagger.
It appears Mick should have
put on a dress like Elton John, then Tony Blair would have had no problems
with his family values. We here at Rocknworld.com hope that the crown will
come to it's senses and award Mick his Knighthood. Then again, we are hoping
for Ozzy Osbourne to receive the same honor. Sir Ozzy? Has a nice ring
to it don't you think.
