Hyde Park looks like a really great concert, while Philly looks like some sick and twisted version of hell that no one should be subjected to.

Hopefully Brrrrrrrrrrruuuuuuuuuuuuce will be named. Seeing he's helping organising it and got thanked at the press conference. God I hope he plays seeing he's always regretting not playing Live Aid.

The Spice Girls were crap ten years ago and they'd still be crap now.

Any band that writes their own music, plays their own instruments and got famous off the back of actual hard work deserves to be pissed off by being asked to play second fiddle to those "famous because they're famous" harpies.

I've got more talent in my little finger than the Spice Girls have got. And that's a fact. My little fingers are both double-jointed. Which means I've got twice the talent, to be honest...

:up: Too true. I partly blame them for all this "reality pop star" s##t that has been circulating for a few years.

The Spicegirls are just fame whores.
They have no real intreast in making good music seeing as it's well documented that they tried several avenues to get famous and the fact they have no singing talent what so ever.

Coldplay may not be everybodys cuppa but their success is their own and not becasue they have a multimillionare manager who has the links and cash to shove thme down everybodys throats.

Out of everyone from Spice Grils Mel B is the only one who is still trying to carve herself a career, shes probably the most talented of the group...

I'd rather listen to the worst manufactured pop than anthing by Coldplay. They're dull, all their singles sound the same and the lead singer is so irritating I want to slap him hard. Still, different stroakes for different folks...
