Right everyone, stop what you're doing because Cliff Richard has got something to say about the state of pop music.

"The industry has become too straight-laced for me," Richo announced to the 'Australian media' as reported by The Telegraph. "It's not adven­tur­ous. It's too safe.''

Cliff also thinks that 'rock and roll' musicians have lost their 'joie de vivre'. "I often feel the rock and roll world has lost its attitude of fun," he continued. "It should be fun to create music, it should be fun to go on tour."

Can he really be unfa­mil­iar with the work of Sam & The Womp? Has he not heard 'Read All About It (Part 3)'? Poor Cliff.
