The somewhat reckless dismissal of America as "no big deal" by Ricky Wilson when the Kaiser Chiefs pulled their US tour has led to some worries backstage. Now, though, a "spokesperson" has "clarified" what Wilson meant:
"We go to the US for the fans - not the money or because we love long-haul. But sometimes you have to let people down."
Ah, yes - "no big deal" in the "we care about you" sense of the phrase. Thanks for clearing that one up.
