Wah! Wylie Gets Due Recognition

I never could stand Pete fucking Wylie and the arse licking about what a fucking genius he was (spread only by fellow Liverpudlians, I suspect - the rumour not his arse which is arguable) and Wah! this and Wah! mighty that but overshadowed by the other Liverpool guys at the time (MacCulloch, Cope, every bin man).

Finally, though, he gets recognition with a brick at the Cavern Club.

The circumstances, though, suggest the little turd will be remembered rather for who he wasn't rather than who he was.

Appropriate really.

Wylie's approach was interesting. Attempt to be great by attacking pretty mediocre songs with UNBELIEVEABLE LEVELS OF ENTHUSIASM. And repeatedly telling everyone interested about how great he was.

I see a diluted form of this at work in Razorlight.
