    All reminds me of one of the first London to Brighton rides when the featured evening entertainment
    was Eric Clapton. Seeing several hundred lycra/tweeded bikies jumping/swaying around their pumps and
    saddlebags (yes I was too) was a memory ne'er to be forgot'.

    century. Dave still enjoying a phat toon dood (whatever one of them is!!)

    The combination of "overpaid" and "talent void" is the genius of it. Making money when you _have_
    talent, that's easy.

    Ah, there y'go, y'see....

    As an aside, I still can't work out whether he's genuinely what the media present him as or some
    middle class white American kid, from a perfectly happy white middle class 'merican family, who went
    to drama school, identified a gap in the market and then created everything we see about him. It's
    America, it's Hollywood, Yeeha!

    (not that it matters very much, 'cos the end product is just awesome, as our colonial cousins
    would say !)

    Thany'vrymush an'gdnight.

    Dave.
    p.s. - appreciate this is very much a matter of personal taste ;-)

    My kids like Flanders & Swann, Holst, Saint-Saëns and Tchaikovsky. No doubt this will change as they
    hit teenage (shades of Kevin's transformation on his birthday).

    Just so. I prefer musicians who can sing or play an instrument or something. The only rapper I like
    is Benjamin Zephaniah :)
