Slade star sick of Merry Xmas Everybody

Slade star Jimmy Lea says he’s sick of hearing Merry Christmas Everybody months before Christmas.

Lea, who played bass for the Seventies rockers, also says he’s had enough of Christmas altogether.

He co-wrote the song with Noddy Holder, but said: “Our record gets played too early. Why can’t people wait? Merry Xmas Everybody was written for Christmas Day.

“You don’t start singing Happy Birthday to somebody two months before the day. Please don’t start playing it again yet. I don’t want to hear it for at least another month.”

The Sun says Lea, 54, has also told family and friends he’s not bothered with Christmas this year.

“I am withdrawing from the festive market. Thanks for your support over the years,” said his note.

He added: “I’m no Scrooge, it’s just that I’m sick and tired of the Christmas hysteria. I think it’s ridiculous. I don’t want presents because there is nothing I need and I don’t intend to give any because of all the hassle.

“I’m not slagging off Christmas Day and I’m not biting the hand that feeds me. I wanted to write an anthem for Christmas Day – but I never dreamt it would still be played 30 years later.”
