Rotten Ridicules Police Reunion

SEX PISTOLS frontman JOHNNY ROTTEN has ridiculed STING's decision to reform his band THE POLICE, branding them "soggy old dead carcasses". Rotten, who this week announced his punk band would perform a one-off reunion gig in London later this year, likened the band's music to "letting air out of a balloon". He says, "That really is a reformation isn't it? But honestly that's like soggy old dead carcasses. "You know listening to Stink (Sting) try to squeak through Roxanne one more time that's not fun. "It's like letting air out of a balloon."
