Glitter's Anthem Pulled From Us Football Stadiums
Disgraced British rocker Gary Glitter's sports anthem ROCK + ROLL PART 2 is to be removed from the playlists at America's football stadiums following protests from fans. National Football League (NFL) officials have chosen to advise all teams to cease playing the tune after learning the song's 62-year-old author is a convicted paedophile. Glitter, real name Paul Francis Gadd, is currently serving a three-year sentence in a Vietnamese prison after being found guilty of child molestation. Rock + Roll Part 2, which was written in 1972, has become a familiar anthem at sports stadiums across America. NFL officials hope the governing bodies of other sports like baseball and basketball follow their lead and ban the song.
