I’d just like to point out that my preceding post was in no way a fishing operation, intended to elicit appeals from “fans”; I just sat down at the keyboard at midnight with the radio on and really couldn’t think of anything weirder than the actual news. In fact, earlier in the week I came up with what I thought were two outrageous scenarios to play with and realised that one of them had already happened.

Meanwhile, the Rolling Stones are too old to get into their own gigs.
