There have been controversies also about music with the election of the communist mayor in Milan. Before the election, the music guru Red Ronnie, supporting the conservative woman, former mayor in the recent years, said that with the communist one, there wouldn't have been any concerts for new bands as recently the conservative one allowed (new bands concerts for John Lennon as well), but only a concert with always the same famous Italian singers, who don't need to be promoted. The young communists, born after the fall of the Berlin wall, got angry (also because they didn't know Red was supporting the conservatives) 'cause they said the communist mayor "didn't have the powers yet" so that the concert thing wasn't true. But saying so, it means that all his promises, programme, etc. have no value, because he "had no powers yet"...
We thought the new Beady Eye could perform @ Formula One rocks Milan, as Stereophonics last year @ Milan Alcatraz disco, also because their "speeding" album about cars was appropriate.
In their place: the left wing pacifist Jamiroquai... and not even in Milan, but @ Monza stadium. I used to like Jay Kay in the '90s, he's English, from Manchester and big fan of cars, but I can't see where he "rocks"... Besides he supports Ferrari, I like him even less now. Very disappointing.
