The Flaming Lips lash out at Richard Ashcroft

The Flaming Lips front man Wayne Coyne has hit out at former Verve singer Richard Ashcroft for pulling out of a taping of the recently axed show ‘Top Of The Pops’, according to pr-inside.com.

“Richard is a pompous dick from my experience.” Coyne said, “We were supposed to record Top Of The Pops with him, but he cancelled at the last minute. Perhaps he sensed a punch-up backstage.”

The Flaming Lips were on the show to promote their latest album ‘At War With The Mystics’, while Richard Ashcroft was scheduled to perform a song from his third solo album ‘Keys To The World’.
