Sham 69: Sham 1969/1977

Peter Silverton, Sounds, 29 October 1977

"I'M NOT stupid. I know, however successful I get to be right now, that in two, three, maybe four if I'm lucky, years' time, I'll get the elbow. They'll do it nicely. They'll say to me: here, look Jimmy, how about trying it like this, while behind my back they'll be saying it's sad about Jimmy, innit, but he's gotta go. But I'll get the elbow all the same. And, in those two or three years while I've got a bit of money, I'm gonna have FUN."
