Is it just me or does the intro and verses of "Ghosts of Christmas" sound a lot like bits of "Ooh La La" by The Faces?

I noticed an article on the front of the Sunday Times financial section today about how Blackstar (as in 'I love this amp!') had recorded record growth and profits over the last year. Obviously down to JDB's sparkling endorsement of it :D

Been reading accounts of fans' experiences from the Generation Terrorists days for the first time since I was a typical teenage Manics fan. Weird remembering how impressionable I was when I got into them fully, being dazzled by the glamour, intensity, and cultural references and all. In my naivety, I remember yearning to have been older so I could've had a chance to follow them around in 1992 in eyeliner and be fully immersed in the idolatry, along with the girls who must've jumped ship long ago. Now I'm 27, I read the old hostility towards 1996 (and onwards) Manics and the inevitable "new" fans and I feel both contempt for the elitist attitude and that same wish to have been a part of it first time around. Somebody slap me before I regress to a CoR idiot.

*slap* :) I remember liking the rows between old and new fans in the NME/MM letters pages :good:

Tsk tsk! I never quite went that far. :P I did briefly do the penpal thing with some Manics fan from MM though.

I always thought the old fan/new fan debate was a bit silly. When a band is around long enough, they'll inevitably get new fans who were previously unaware of them or too young to have been a fan a few years earlier. Do old Rolling Stones fans hate younger fans?

I do remember the possessive nature of some of those arguments though. Even though I wasn't there, I thought it was a load of crap that somebody who discovered the band post-1995 couldn't be affected the same way, or at least similarly. I didn't get to see them play every night at various Universities in 1992, but I was still affected by the lyrics, outfits, references and ambitions that others had been affected by years earlier. Thankfully I don't see that kind of debate anymore, and I'm sure many on here became a fan for the reasons I did, and subsequently saw past the myths. Even though they're sometimes entertaining.

I've been a fan since 92 but I never met any fans from back then so did'nt see them till 95 at Reading. They were unheard of round here, I hardly met anyone who liked them after 96 either, its only since I have come on FD that I have known other Manic fans.
