Halloween erm...what's-his-name...is a real cool cat
The Smashing Pumpkins played their very last UK concerts last week, and for their Halloween show at Manchester Apollo they displayed an uncharacteristic sense of humour. Before Billy and the band returned to the stage for an encore of '1979', an announcer introduced some special guests, including David Beckham, to mark The Pumpkins' last ever performance in Manchester.
Our very own bald bloke in a dress, Curly Stockton, was there: "The boos soon turned to cheers when we realised that Becks was actually Billy Corgan in a United strip. The rest of the band followed, all made up as famous Mancunians; Melissa Auf Der Maur was dressed as Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice to you young Americans), then James Iha came on as that geezer from Man City, and Jimmy Chamberlain was convincing as George Best. The two keyboard players looked happy to be the Gallagher brothers."
But what's all this got to do with the picture above of Warren Beaty in Shampoo, I hear you mumble. Well look again. Does that hairdo look familiar, and those trademark shades? But what about that mouth...Hmmm, something not quite right here. Solve the puzzle by clicking on the strange fellow's nose.
