 The Ben Pritchard thread ; All about Ben

Post #1 - 21 Mar 2018, 22:07

I noticed the other day that ex-Fall guitarist Ben Pritchard was "following" The Fallen Forum on Twitter, so I thought being as he probably reads this here forum too, we should celebrate his work and times with the gruppe. :)

Many say he was a bad egg, flouncing off as he did with the other TLC's, but I prefer to admire the man* for the good times before. I've heard accusations of him being a second rate pub rocker, but this is just not fair, he was up there with the greatest Fall guitarists like Craig and Pete imo.

As a tribute, here's a video of a performance back in 2002. Note at the start how he laughs off MES calling him a tuneless fucktard, and plays on regardless. A true professional. :clap:

*I'm having a quick admire right now. :drool:

Anyway, your thoughts please....

You can hardly judge everyone called Ben just because of the company you keep, you cunt. :angry:

As head moderator of the forum I can't tell how sorry I am about this Mr. Pritchard. routemaster has been a disruptive influence here ever since we started up. I'm going to warn him about his behaviour now and you can rest assured that if there's any repetition he will be warned again.

My apologies, not to you dannynomates because you're a tedious bellend, but to the ex-Fall guitarist. I hadn't realised Ben was a stage name and his real name is Sue. :)

What you have said on this thread is racism, pure and simple. You only have to substitute blacks, Jews, or Pakistanis for people called Ben to prove my point. Can you imagine the row that would have ensued had MES said, "Where are the obligatory people called Ben?" No, I thought not. If I had my way people like you would be shut in a camp away from society.

No of course not. Where would be the logic in torturing someone in a gas chamber?

You're a nasty bit of work Joan Con, never a good word to say about anything or anyone.

The rest of you are no better, I made this thread out of respect and love for Ben Pritchard's work and all you can do is make catty and spiteful comments. I don't know why I bother sometimes. :cry2:


Well Ben's back, and he's written a new song. He's changed his style a bit, but I think the first two lines sum up how he must feel if he reads the horrid things you people post. :angry:

No. My forum, my rules. There is mention of Ben in the article if you read it.
