The View

Biography

Cast your mind back to 2005. While A&R men the length and breadth of the land were busy scouring the post-Franz landscape of Glasgow in search of the next great new Scottish band, what they sought lay a couple of hundred miles to the North East, in an oft-overlooked part of the country.

Although not a rosie fan, she has a right to her opinion. That is what america is all about. I don't blame her, I would have quit also. Elizabeth was only asked to answer a question, which she never did. I never watched the show because as "the Donald said, she is the dumbest spokesperson on TV. She attacked Rosie, not the other way around. Elizabeth even attacked Joy and was looking over her shoulder as she read her notes. Let her take her tacky leather shoes and exit the View's set. I hope Rosie gets her own show. She works better alone.

At nearly 40 years of age and and old punk/new wave fan, it's not often I hear a track or a band that blows me away first time I hear it or them. The View have just done that. Blown me away. Thanks go to Jo Wylie and Radio 1 for introducing me. I just hope they live up to their obvious potential

To lead singer of the view,Shut the f@!k up! First who are you to implore a legend such as Led Zeppelin to not tour. Second you should really be a relavent music act to even consider such a statement. Third I've heard Plant sing at 9 occasions and he never sounded like he was screaming like sh@t. You really should become a great band first, possibly sell a quarter of a billion records, become a Hall of Fame Rock God Icon and not have a band name that is about a women point of view talk show before you talk any smack about someone who you'll never be compared to or be as important musically as. Ciao
