Pale-faced young London boys with red 'air, dodgy teeth and the World at their feet.

Johnny looks up at the stars...
The ever-so Bowie-friendly
Apparently, Jonathan, (recently, and unfairly IMHO, voted Britain's Worst Dressed Man) also has a running gag along the lines of "Next week we have David Bowie as a guest on the show...", though he hasn't yet, and those who haven't managed to erase the memory will recall the particularly nasty moment when the gangly TV presenter decided to dress as Aladdin Sane, complete with poorly-executed lightning bolt across his face.
Anywaaay...Mr Woss, sorry, Ross, had John Lydon, (aka Johnny Rotten) as his guest this morning. With the conversation focusing on artists that Lydon admires, Ross, with his colours already nailed firmly to the mast, asked: "At sometime, you must have been a Bowie fan, mustn't you?", to which the former Sex Pistol replied: "Well, of course. You've got to love Bowie, he delivers the goods." And with compliments from Mr Rotten even thinner on the ground these days than they were in the bad old days, that's praise indeed.
