Last week’s passing of thespian/comic powerhouse Suzanne Somers was noted far and wide, in particular her pivotal role in shepherding the career of the reunited Wire in 1987. As you all know, it was not a relationship that would stand the test of time ; Somers’ insistence that inviting Ex-Lion Tamers to support Wire’s first US tour in many years was “the worst idea ever” didn’t go down well and the rest is history. Except for the part where Somers claimed Sandy Hook mass murderer Adam Lanza was unduly influenced by the fumes of home cleaning products. Maybe that didn’t really need to happen.
