Could be a hub being over-loaded on your side of the pond Dez with all the extra traffic tonight.

So that's why a Pet Shop Boys website goes down at the death of a completely different artist.

on any artist passing away. fans look to their artist for any kind of comfort and condolences.

not that everyone cared for Michael Jackson. there are many rock artist still Rockin.

even though they are on tour. I am sure this news saddens Chris and Neil.

This is not directed at you Dez (or anyone else) but what if they really don't care enough to not make an official comment about it? Ultimately, why should they?

I don't expect them to and could care less if they did... nothing against them, of course. Its their call, should they decide to.

I wonder if PSB will have anything to say. They almost seemed to be on the opposite end of the spectrum from him musically.

I doubt N&C ever even met Michael Jackson. No disrespect, but why would they make any kind of statement about it?

Maybe they will made some comments. Checked even Twitter but there was no new posts

Is it me, or do people on the other side of the pond get this saying totally back to front with the omission of ' n't ' ? :?: I've wondered this for a while now...

I should have typed couldn't care less. Just a fast, typing mistake ;)

That said, seems like Dipso and myself are the only ones in base agreement so far...

At MJ at one point kinda 'trick' Neil & Chris into going to Disneyland to see Captain Nemo (title?) and instead the Boys found themselves in a middle of a parade waving at the the audience or something?

I don't remember the details (clearly), but I think that that is as close as they ever got to Michael...
