I'm In A Rock 'n' Roll Band: It was a bad omen when Jonathan Ross was announced as the compere, but the final show in this impeccable series was a shoddy disaster. Who dreamed up such a lacklustre idea where three twerps, (Al Murray, Martin Kemp and Suggs), spent 2 minutes convincing the nationwide TV audience to vote for Led Zeppelin, Queen, or The Beatles respectively. I think most already knew who their favourites were, without having to be told.
The Panel of 'experts' in Lauren Laverne, Mark Radcliffe and Stuart Copeland were a poor selection. The first two were hardly of 'world class rock band status' with a right to express an opinion, never mind sit on a panel like that.
And then the whole thing dissolved into a debacle of arguing fit only for a seedy backstreet pub; so I switched off and went to bed.
If they bother releasing the series on DVD, I only hope this live piece of BS is not included.
