Containing Multitudes Since 2004
Poor Rat...he tried to carry the weight of The Damned on his shoulders, and wound up consigned to limbo.I wonder what Matlock does these days. If only he had a show where he plays a small-town lawyer.
Matlock still plays with the Pistols!Whats weird about this photo is, of course, Sid replaced Matlock (and would've done so by the time of this picture I think because Nancy is obviously his girlfriend here)and when Sid left the Pistols Scabies drummed for him on some apparently shambolic gigs in NY.
Syd looks disgusted.But did he ever look different?
Rat Scabies. I love that name. Feminists would say I'm entitled to it.
The name Rat is just the opposite of how sweet and well mannered he was.
It's really a shame that Rat can't clear up his differences with Dave Vanian and Captain Sensible. It could still happen I suppose (I hear he'd been doing some shows with original Damned guitarist Brian James, those would be a treat). The legal mess of it all would probably send your head spinning.
