Killing Kevin Keegan… Lost in a Forest

Ventotto maggio 1980, ultima canzone del concerto a Berlino durante il Seventeen Seconds tour. Killing an arab diventa Killing Kevin Keegan che sta giocando con l’Amburgo la finale di Coppa dei Campioni contro il Nottingham Forest. Da straniero inglese in terra tedesca a straniero inglese in una squadra tedesca.  Kevin Keegan quella sera non potrà che perdere la Coppa dei Campioni, lost in a Forest 1-0.

 

 

Killing Kevin Keegan

The modification of ‘Killing an Arab’ to ‘Killing Kevin Keegan’ caused most likely from Robert Smith’s football adoration. On 28.05.1980 the European Football Champions final was played in Madrid,  at Santiago Bernabeu, between the english club Nottingham Forest F.C. and the german club Hamburger SV. The english player Kevin Keegan,  voted European Footballer of the Year, played for Hamburger SV these days, something Robert seems not to like … at least that evening.
