Perhaps it’s facing mortality for the first time, or morbid curiosity brought on by various vagaries happening around you all at the same time, but one gets to the point of thinking that time’s running out, and there’s nothing more to do as you’ve been The Wolf Of Wall Street and sung with Warren Zevon [...]

They called it “The Sound of Young America”, or “The Sound of Detroit”, but when Berry Gordy Jr, below, unleashed this incredible new sound in the early Sixties on his Tamla-Motown label, it was confusing to many of us who were busy trying to look like our Beat Boom musical heroes. Let’s face it, there [...]

What a hue and cry there was by the media including righteous radio stations in America that followed John Lennon’s throwaway line that the Beatles were more popular than Jesus and the apology he was forced to make as the boys still had a long way to go with their music. Compare that episode with [...]

Perhaps it’s karma, perhaps it’s a Lamb Korma, perhaps it’s just la la and wah wah and all about timing to find more about myself because I want to and not to appease others and con everyone in the process, but for the past five successive days, I’ve switched on the telly and on has [...]

Before he became The Liberace of Pop, long before Tantrums And Tiaras, the goofy outfits, Crocodile Rock and when his personal life took centrestage over his music, let’s not forget how many of us respected Captain Fantastic- Elton John- and The Brown Dirt Cowboy- Bernie Taupin.
