    OMG! icon_eek.gif

    Someone from The Village People is GAY??? icon_eek.gif

    My life is now shattered. I thought they were the epitome of masculinity? With all their songs about the benefits of military service (In the Navy), gym-culture at the upstanding "Young Mens Christian Assocation" (YMCA), and masculinity itself (Macho Man).

    I'm just so floored. I never knew!

    Are any of the other Villiage People gay and I just didn't know it???? icon_eek.gif

    A three day event too! I like that idea a lot. Check out the story as I was impressed by the way this was done.

    Seems like yesterday when we were listening to their tunes and rushing out to be the first to buy their latest album (on vinyl!). Time goes on, but their music will always be special.

    My favorite VP tune is one that didn't get any airplay to my knowledge, and this is some good fodder for your iPod when you work out.....

    I play this on repeat in the mornings to get me pumped up for the day.

    Not long ago, I read that Glenn Hughes (leather guy) had died from complications from lung cancer. He is buried in New York City and in his leatherman outfit. RIP Glenn!

    If this is true, I am going to get a Village People poster for my bedroom! So excited!


    Then your collection will be complete (you do have Farrah, right???)

    He wasn't gay, and he didn't die of a heart attack per se. Andy Gibb died of myocarditis, muscular inflammation of the heart directly linked to a viral infection he'd had and arguably contributed to by his continuing use of cocaine. RIP Andy.

    And to Randy and Will: ALL THE BEST and CONGRATULATIONS! Party on, men!!! icon_biggrin.gif

    Actually I never knew, either. I really didn't listen to their music, not my kind, but for a while you saw and heard them everywhere. I just dismissed them as another group with a costume gimmick, even like we have today. The lyrics should have been a giveaway, but I wasn't paying close attention. I think a lot of the US was equally naive and unaware of the message there.
