on behalf of all of us, i appeciate your concern. but, personally, i'd suggest you lighten up a bit. it wasn't mean spirited or disrespectful. it was a joke. you would rather no one said anything about him? he's a celebrity. and i've seen the photos of him and angela lansbury...know what? there might even be a bit of a resemblance.
here is what i think. you become famous, maybe even real famous...and people refer to you. sometimes things said will be good, sometimes... not so much. do you fear people will remember that comment? maybe even think thats what he'll be known for? i'm pretty sure people will be talking about his music long after that comment is forgotten. that's what this site is for.
besides, there are much meaner things you can say about the guy. you can call him a lightweight songwriter. you can call him a bad actor. you can even call him dead. i got a feeling paul will be around to survive much worse.
and, being the old codger that i am, i have to be honest...have you seen ms lansbury when she was younger? she was one foxy lady, she was one hot potato...she was the bees knees...
I want to tell her that I love her a lot, but I got to get a belly full of wine.
