At Glastonbury 2013 a young woman in the front row was holding up a sign to 70ish-year-old Rolling Stones lead singer Mick Jagger saying ‘Marry Me Mick’. Jagger was in a long-term relationship with L’Wren Scott at the time. The sign was probably tongue-in-cheek, but would the sign-holder have retracted her proposal if Jagger had seriously accepted?
Like that Glastonbury woman probably knew about Jagger, Marc Latham almost certainly doesn’t expect The Pretty Reckless singer Taylor Momsen to want to marry him. This is despite him writing a Folding Mirror poem connecting her to legendary peroxide rock-popper Debbie Harry of Blondie; and Momsen later being cited as a modern Runaway or Doro Pesch of Warlock rock singing fame.
For the last five years Marc has been going to a rock gig a year, with all the previous featuring middle-age male rockers like Marc.
The Pretty Reckless could this year become the first female-fronted band to join a list including Lynyrd Skynyrd, Guns N’ Roses, Motley Crue, Def Leppard, W.A.S.P. and Alice in Chains.
While critics might question The Pretty Reckless choice, Marc obviously thinks they deserve his personal honour, as they are a genuine rock band who stand out from other bands with Momsen’s quality voice and edgy intelligent lyrics… as well as her nice looks… and her love for boomeranging (as seen in the above photo).
Super Groupie Comedy To Hell With It
If he didn’t go to a female-interest band he would only open himself up to homophobic or ‘being sexist’ criticism anyway, so he might as well do what he wants to do, as there’s always a positive and negative interpretation of every decision and event.
Being subversive, I think it would be a good comedy skit if Dr. Marc Latham went there as Momsen’s super groupie! I wouldn’t like to put the idea in his head, but it might become a self-fulfilling prophecy if this blog becomes popular enough!!
Hi, it’s William Wolfsworth, satirical comedy poetry correspondent at the greenYgrey inspired by legendary Romantic poet William Wordsworth.
If Marc doesn’t get taken On The Road by Momsen, his last hope is probably if Hugh Hefner finally recognises him as heir to the Playboy Mansion. I believe Marc has now promised not to lead the mansion into revolt, as Hugh Hefner was once a revolutionary himself, so there is hopefully now more chance Hef will invite him for talks…
Playboy Mansion Heir
I think the reflection was more a break with the past than a comment on the present, although Britain and the world is still thankfully full of high street honey brightening up the grey days.
Keep honey cooking in the kitchen
memories on the mantelpiece
old flames in the fire.
