THE PUBLIC IMAGE IS ROTTEN — NORTH AMERICAN FALL TOUR
someone is raped and murdered in a forest and left there as a cassette recorder plays a pop song
The one song we’ve heard off the What The World Needs Now… is pretty solid stuff so news Johnny is touring behind it is not such bad news after all. indeed if he is half as good as he was last time, it should make for an interesting evening.
Starting with a spitted out “That’s why I fucked your bitch, you fat mother fucker”, 2Pac takes the Bad Boy crew and blows em away and never better: this time he wipes the smirk off Biggie’s face with a violent, threatening, deadly earnest “Back the fuck up or you’ll get smacked the fuck up.” Result: the murder of two of the biggest pop stars of all time.
Just out of the army, back in the charts, this is Presley, not an album artist, best album: it has the breadth of masterpiece, blues, pop, rock and roll, hits and deep cuts, It sprawls its way on to the charts and Presley, in an alternative universe, was using this as a gate to a future and not a goal post.
