Sweetheart of the Rodeo
This week's episode is 'Behaving badly...' & features songs from some of music's biggest characters, awkward interviewees & those infamous for their bad attitudes!
I'm talking about Morrissey's ego-maniacness, Liam Gallagher's effing & blinding in every other sentence, Johnny Rotten's crazy & eccentric attacks on interviewers and Mark E.Smith putting cigarettes out in a journalist's eye.
So listen to this episode to hear a playlist inspired by some of my favourite bad characters in music & the interviews that have made audiences cringe, left critics riled & either built up or damaged the images of various bands & singers.
I mentioned in the episode that I'd put up links to some of the interviews I referenced so here they are!
