Why I Love A Real Rock & Roller

I came across this today in Page Six and it made me laugh in appreciation of the contrast between the "upright" citizen and the "degenerate" rock n' roller.

A big Hollywood madame got busted, and some of the names in her little black book were published. Among them were actor Bruce Willis, former L.A. Dodger manager Tommy Lasorda and former Sex Pistol guitarist and current L.A. DJ Steve Jones. Here are some of the responses of the "accused" johns:

Among the individuals whose names were also recently unsealed by Los Angeles Superior Court are Willis, Lasorda, ex-Sex Pistols rocker Steve Jones and late movie producer Don Simpson.

Willis' lawyer, Marty Singer, told Page Six, "It's a total fabrication. He doesn't know the woman, he's never met the woman. My client doesn't need to pay for sex, he doesn't pay for sex."

Lasorda's lawyer, Tony Cappazola, was also indignant. "He's very upset. It's a slimy book so full of inaccuracies. For instance, she says she called Tommy back on his cellphone and he didn't even have a cellphone . . . She's an over-the-hill, desperate hooker attempting to make a buck," said the lawyer, who scoffed at Gibson's claim that Lasorda paid $1,500 in cash. "You know Lasorda. He wouldn't buy lunch," Cappazola said.

Jones told the L.A. Times, "It's possible. I crossed paths with her back then." He told us, "We all have to make a living . . . I think sex for money should be legal. It's such a [misdemeanor]. Who cares?"

I love it. We get denial and righteous indignation from our upright friends the actor and the baseball manager, and then comes along the punk rocker to say (metaphorically), "Who gives a shit?" Nice going Steve. You made me a fan again.
