COMMENT: Funding PTSD programme could end up saving money

Have your say

Liam Gallagher has openly criticized rapper Jay-Z’s fashion line, saying ‘you’d be arrested if you wear his stuff’.

Liam, of course, launched his own range of clothing in 2009 (inspired by the 1960s, just like his music).

And now Lily Allen is said to be launching her own fashion line. Where will it end?

Well, here are some musical icons who may yet launch their own clothing lines, mainly because they’ve already sung about them…

There’s Elvis’ Blue Suede Shoes – be the envy of the customers in your chip shop with footwear that says ‘Uh-hu-hu’, if nothing else.

There’s Madness’ Baggy Trousers – relive your school years with trousers so big you still haven’t grown into them yet.

There’s Prince’s Raspberry Beret – stylish headgear from the 1980s (perfect for keeping your hair dry if you get caught out in the Purple Rain).

There’s Phil Collins’ No Jacket Required – the classic casual look – no jacket (and no hair either).

There’s Paul Young’s Wherever I Lay My Hat, Hat – just hang it up on any hat stand, and instantly you’re within your rights to squat there.

There’s The Sugababes’ Red Dress – made to fit any woman – as chances are, they’ll all have been in the Sugababes one day.

There’s Timmy Mallett’s Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yello Polka Dot Bikini – not for someone easily embarrassed. If you’ve got that in your record collection, you can’t afford to be.

Did you know, if you want to be a rock music hell-raiser, it helps to be called ‘Keith’.

There was Keith Moon, wildman drummer with The Who. He was famous for getting outrageously drunk and driving cars into hotel swimming pools.

Then there’s Rolling Stone Keith Richards – the guy who’s shoved every chemical substance in the world into his body.

And, also there’s Keith Emerson, from prog-rockers Emerson, Lake & Palmer.

Known as The Hendrix of the Hammond Organ, he used to set fire to his keyboards on stage.

And, of course, there’s Keith Duffy of Boyzone, who’s admitted occasionally eating yoghurts that are a few hours past their sell-by date.

What, in your opinion, is the biggest lie ever told in a pop lyric?

Quick suggestion: ‘My life is brilliant’, the first line from You’re Beautiful by James Blunt.

How can James Blunt’s life be brilliant? He’s James Blunt!
