Former Rolling Stones Manager Andrew Loog Oldham Speaks,… But Not To Us


Andrew Loog Oldham

When you speak to Sabotage Times, it looks like you are going to do some damages right? It’s totally what did legendary record producer and manager of the Rolling Stones, Andrew Loog Oldham,  spoke to the online magazine and he certainly demonstrated he had strong and controversial opinions about many things:

British TV presenter Jools Holland? He is simply ‘awful’:

‘They really should inject his hands with cocaine so that he cannot play piano any more. I’ve watched him walk all over Bill Medley, Amy Winehouse, Paul Weller. I’m sure he went to the Russ Conway piano school….. Anyway, ‘Later With Jools Holland’, that’s the show and a very good show it is apart from Jools (who looks like Bernard Cribbins in pimp gear).’

Inject his hands with cocaine? That’s such a weird idea and a bit extreme, don’t you think so?

What does he think about today’s music?

‘But we live in an era where songs don’t last any more, and even if the song has the brainwash to place itself inside you and call you home, more often than not the voice ruins it by attempting to sell itself as opposed to the song. We serve the song, otherwise the song cannot serve us.

And the shape of the music business?

‘Steve Jobs just became the new guy who stopped us getting paid. The record companies still do it, hiding behind the technology to fuck you. Steve Jobs just invented the new game and, ironically, paid for it with his life. The phenomenon of the second stage of Saturn return. Record companies and music publishers keep their doors oiled by underpaying.’

And the guy has plenty of these metaphor sentences:

‘As for the acts the road is still king – the rest is window dressing.’

But mostly, he dislikes the last Bowie, what? really?

‘I just heard the new Bowie single; he seems to be cloning the worst of Scott Walker. As I’ve said old people make old music. ‘

Ouch! And he doesn’t have one single nice word, as he doesn’t have a better opinion of the Stones Roses:

‘As for your point about The Stone Roses, whom I love the same way I love Bruce Willis, meaning I love the aura, I’m just not sure about the content.’

All the rest is in the same vein, bitter and nasty, but may be we shouldn’t expect anything cheerful from a guy who says that England is ‘Politically or socially’ a ‘karmageddon’, but migrated to Columbia to escape taxes.
