Last week's Primal Scream story predicting trouble for Britain's Royal Family was immediately followed by the death of Princess Margaret, who passed away last Saturday morning (Feb 9) following a long period of ill health.

Her death followed NME quoting Primal Scream singer Bobbie Gillespie as saying "If it was up to me I would put them (the Royal Family) up against a fuckin' wall and kill them," and was just the latest strange coincidence to follow controversial statements from the band. In 2001, the band attracted even more controversy after 9/11, over their decision to call one of their tracks Bomb The Pentagon. (Free the lady within)
