Ya gotta love it when the “Arctic Monkeys” say what a sham Live Earth was. I like their style…might have to buy one of their c.d.s!

'Who are we to preach?'

Top rock bands have boycotted today’s Life Earth concerts saying the artists taking part are hypocrites.

The Artic Monkeys have become the latest band to question the merits of the concerts.

“Since the stage lighting alone would be enough to power 10 houses, it’s all very hypocritical,” said Arctic Monkeys drummer Matt Helders.

“And also consider the long haul flights and the carbon footprint to get rock bands to the concerts,” he added.

“Someone asked us to give a quote about what was happening in Sheffield and it’s like ‘who cares what we think about what’s happening’?”

“There’s more important people who can have an opinion. Why does it make us have an opinion because we’re in a band?”

Other stars who have already turned their backs on the event include The Who singer Roger Daltrey who said “the last thing the planet needs is a rock concert”.
