    If your favourite singer committed child abuse would it put you off his/her music?

    Similarly, if you found that he or she had political views that you found reprehensible, would that make you like the songs less?

      It would make no real sense to go off music you previously rated, but I think it's inevitable that you would, IMO.

      Plenty still love The Who, mind.
      The above post is simply my opinion. I am not bullying you, should it differ from your own.

      Yes, especially if it were my child they had abused.

      Yes. The political views wouldn't bother me so much (depending on the severity of the views obviously).

      I have got a special edition of The Human Leagues Travelogue which is one of their earlier albums and very good it is too. There are some extra tracks at the end one of which is a Gary Glitter cover. Whenever I play the album I skip it- it's pretty rubbish anyway.

      The first record I ever bought was Rock 'n' Roll part 2 , by Gary Glitter . I will always keep it for simple reason it was the record that started off my obsession with rock music. However , I find it quite easy to not play any of his songs ever again , based on the evidence released after his trial. There have been some great covers of his songs , and would still listen to them . I just do not want to hear his voice. If it were ever to happen to an individual in a band I really like , Metallica for example , I don't think I would abandon the band because of an individual member. I still listen to The Who , but I am unsure if Townsend was ever guilty , was he ?

      In the early days they used to play Rock 'n' Roll Pt 1 (or is it part 2?) as an encore. When I saw them support the Banshees in 1979, Spizz (of Spizzenergi etc) came on and mugged around to the song in a bacofoil glitter suit, to great acclaim. Of course, none of us knew anything untoward back then...

      That's the one and the version on the Album is live too.
