Phoney Villagemania has bitten the dust

The Guardian blog recently published an account of Bob Dylan's portable toilet (horrors!), along with a list of other music stars who have supposedly gone off message.

The one that I liked the best was the late Joe Strummer:

Joe Strummer had a watertight rep, too. Yet back in 1999 the Clash singer appeared on the front of NME dressed as the cowboy out of Village People along with his Fat Les mates Keith Allen, Damien Hirst and Alex James. Groucho Calling.

By the way, I wrote about original Village People cowboy Randy Jones in 2006.
