Noddy Holder, former frontman with Bilston based international supergroup, Slade today reacted angrily at what he called Prince William's appalling choice of Royal Wedding hosiery.
"Them was just plain black!" Noddy Holder fumed. "What a blinkin' let down! Talk about a wasted opportunity... He could've worn a pair of brightly coloured hooped Slade socks, and given a huge boost to the British hosiery industry. Unimaginative twaddock!"
Not everybody agreed with Noddy Holder though.
US 'School's Out' rocker, Alice Cooper reckons Noddy Holder out of Slade got it all wrong.
"It's a Royal Wedding," Alice 'No More Mister Nice Guy' Cooper said. "It's traditional that he wears plain black socks. You can't mess about with half mast trousers and brightly coloured socks at a Royal Wedding. Besides, I like the colour black. It kind of suggests evil and darkness."
Alice Cooper's snake, Yvonne merely flicked her tongue out a bit.
Mick 'Simply Red' Hucknall dismissed the choice of hosiery as "irrelevant," saying that it was more important that the balding Prince elected to wear a red jacket, rather than one in the blue of Manchester City or Chelsea.
Former Sex Pistol, John 'Johnny Rotten' Lydon said he wasn't too bothered by the Prince's conservative hosiery choice, saying that he thought the couple looked "enchanting" and adding that he hoped they spread real English butter on the crumpets at the reception.
A spokesperson for Babyshambles front man, Pete Doherty, said he had no idea if Pete would be watching or not, adding that he was probably off with George Michael somewhere getting "nutted."
