Weller Slams Children's Musical Tastes

Former THE JAM frontman PAUL WELLER has slammed his children's taste in music - branding their idol MARILYN MANSON "appalling". The YOU DO SOMETHING TO ME singer, who has a son and a daughter with his ex-wife DEE C LEE, despises the youngsters' passion for goth rock and puts their musical differences down to the generation gap. He says of the pair, "They're both gagging to get in a band. "(NAT's) the smartest end of goth. He's more of a 'moth'. He's a good kid. "Marilyn Manson's his man. I think it's f**king appalling. But he digs it. "Music and clothes, another generation.

What would Paul Weller know? He is a has been, or rather a never was. He made basic songs lacking complexity, all the same as the next. Marilyn Manson cannot be accused of such, touching upon industrial metal, glam metal, and many other genres. He is the one who is "f**king appalling", reflective of other parents who show no desire to understand and empathise with their children. What does he expect his children to be? Mini-Paul Weller's?
