Highly doubt it, I think the list is BS. First, you really think they would play the Sex Pistols God Save the Queen? The song was banned in England by both the BBC and IBA for years. Second, who will perform the Beatles song live, two are deceased.

Yeh they will play that as its very much changed in 35 years since the Pistols did it, they are part of our national consciousness and it doesn't come across as it did...so yeh I think it will be played.

I can't say that I've really found it offensive. If anything, it's one of the most iconic photographs in the history of music and is a living testament not only to Cash himself and how he never took shit off of anyone but also to the late, great photographer, Jim Marshall.

No but it is a bit low brow on here, can't imagine Jimmy Page doing that, but i guess he is an English Gentleman, although am sure somewhere there will be a photo of him with an offensive pic.

I can't say I'd consider it "low brow" in the least, particularly when it's one of the most recognized and honored photographs in the history of music. Hell, even Johnny himself used it in this ad from Billboard back in the 90's when he won a Grammy for his album American Recordings despite the record being shunned by commercial Country radio. It's also rather ironic that someone would refer to the image as "lowbrow" on a Zeppelin site unless you're just not in the know about their extracurricular activities back in the day. It's absolutely tame in comparison.

I would chill, I did have it as my avatar, but decided a bit of decorum was needed as didn't see any other offensive picture on here. There are times and places.

Are you offended by this image? If so, you might want to prepare yourself for another board member that posts here quite a bit.

No I am not offended by it at all, why ? I said some might be offended by Johnny cash pic, why are you being uptight by it, its your choice to have it and mine to take it down. I am entitled to my opinion about why I took it down.

You seem a little agitated by it all. Right Johnny I am off to talk Zeppelin and this seems to be off topic now.

Hey Major, don't fret. You guys rule with the whole fish & chips not to mention the parlamentary system, Shakespeare, Dr. Dee, Newton, fig newtons, football, and of course, Helen Mirren!!! Now if your country could just find a few dentists, the empire would be complete :beer:

:) nah we don't need dentists, it makes everyone individual with different teeth instead of some countries..(no names) with all the same bright white nashers looking like they are from some madam tussauds museum :)
