Randy Jackson Soils Frank Zappa's Memory


01/15/2009
.
(antiMusic) It's this kind of lame crap that is destroying music. We actually received a press release about the t-shirt Randy Jackson wore on American Idle. It gets worse as they place Jackson in the same category as Frank Zappa, John Lennon, Janis Joplin, Robert Plant, Joe Strummer and Jeff Buckley. Sad but true. Here is the hype so you know which shirt to avoid buying or outright boycott:

Randy Jackson already brings rock history to American Idol - as a professional musician, he's played with Keith Richards, Jerry Garcia and Journey - but last night he literally wore it on his sleeve with Worn Free's "Radio Clyde" T-shirt. The shirt was originally worn by Frank Zappa onstage in the late 70s after being given to him by a Scottish radio station of the same name.

With last night's show, Jackson joined the growing number of musicians, actors, [poptards] and entertainers who take pride in being a part of pop culture history with the comfortable, shirts offered by Worn Free.

Worn Free combines art, rock and roll and chic fashion into lines of hip T-shirts that make pop culture's history come alive, worn by celebrities, musicians and notable figures all over the world, including Robert Downey Jr., Jennifer Aniston [that'll make you want one!] and Robert Plant.

The company's highly anticipated spring 2009 design line is to include "new" vintage designs originally worn by Frank Zappa, John Lennon, Deborah Harry, Jeff Buckley, Joe Strummer and Janis Joplin, just to name a few. [Care to drop any more names? If they were alive would they endorse this use of their names? (We realize that Deborah Harry is still alive and probably enjoys any press she can get these days, we are talking about the others). ]
