Interesting news items one and all. So Richard Ashcroft and Liam Gallagher know what its like to feel like the son of God. Does that mean Noel knows what it's like to feel like the brother of the son of God? And where does this leave Damon Albarn? Hmmm, that Gorillaz album is called "Demon Days"...

Demon Days is about how today is; not how the world should be... Not that I think Damon is Christian(?) at all... But he's not anti-Christ... :P

(sorry for chatting in comment)

@Ziggy: Good to see you back on track :D
