    Great quote from a great musician, one of the best. He was a good human being too. He was well ahead of his time with so many of his sayings and lyrics too

      Lyrics -I’m the slime
      I am gross and perverted
      I’m obsessed and deranged
      I have existed for years
      But very little has changed
      I’m the tool of the Government
      And industry too
      For I am destined to rule
      And regulate you
      I may be vile and pernicious
      But you can’t look away
      I make you think I’m delicious
      With the stuff that I say
      I’m the best you can get
      Have you guessed me yet?
      I’m the slime oozin’ out
      From your TV set
      You will obey me while I lead you
      And eat the garbage that I feed you
      Until the day that we don’t need you
      Don’t go for help, no one will heed you
      Your mind is totally controlled
      It has been stuffed into my mold
      And you will do as you are told
      Until the rights to you are sold
      That’s right, folks
      Don’t touch that dial
      Well, I am the slime from your video
      Oozin’ along on your livin’ room floor
      I am the slime from your video
      Can’t stop the slime, people, look at me go
      I am the slime from your video
      Oozin’ along on your livin’ room floor
      I am the slime from your video
      Can’t stop the slime, people, look at me go

    He was way ahead of the times, and ahead of me too. It wasn’t till I started on the internet, that I could start to see it for what it was. A great musician and a great guy.

      I’ve always had that dissident/subversive aspect to my character Ian. By no means in massive way, but always there in the background

      It’s one of the reasons that I loved Frank’s work so much. Brilliant music, he was a superb guitarist, and always had great players with him too. And his lyrics were often very, very, funny and were often dissident, or subversive, in some way. People thought that he was a druggie but most definitely not, he was just a natural born surrealist. I started listening to him in the early 1970’s, so 50+ years a fan, sigh. He passed in 1993, 30 damn years ago….

      I really started to wake up in 2012 when I joined Twitter. It had some great links in those days, it led me to The Tap. I never post on Twitter anymore, haven’t for several years, I just use it for footy stuff only now. This is still my handle there on my, basically redundant, account:
      Interested in everything * Master of nothing * EvertonFamily * Carpe Diem

      It is a family too, a world wide family, but mainly scousers….

      All together now:

      You can stuff your effin 10 points up your arse Prem League, you can stuff your effin 10 points up your arse… [ad infinitum]

      Only footy fans will get that 🙂
