My point is merely that it is the adulation and idolising of a single star that I take umbrage with, and not the behaviour of the star. It's the parent that allows their child to become so swallowed up in a single thing that I take issue with.
Lots of kids say they are going to run away, some mean it, some do not; some slip out and hang out at the end of the street until they get hungry, bored or realise that their bluff has been called. For me the notion of running away had become very real.
There I was on the ropes at Abbey Road. Maybe it was a mistake to try and stand toe to toe with an uninterested, chatty audience. At least Jimmy Page was paying attention.
Reviews of Autobiography confirmed my worst fears: he would spend far too long detailing a complicated court case against his former band-members and not enough time describing how it must have felt to press something so pure as Hatful of Hollow or Meat is Murder to vinyl. But then - what do critics know?
Last month I wrote a piece entitled 'Leopards And Spots - Why The Labels Never Change'. It was about record companies and the relationship that they have with performers. I compared my own personal experience of record companies and publishers back in the 1970s with the contracts that I now see being offered to MU members on a weekly basis.
It's fair to say I've found a new love of the theatre, and modern tech means that people can experience the west end from hundreds of locations around the world. This is truly exciting. Not only that, but I think I am a Shakespeare convert.
I hope the millions who watch Coronation Street will be tantalised by the short excerpts they heard of both pieces and hunt down the full works. Their efforts will certainly be rewarded.
In my experience, care homes can be joyous, vibrant places. And re-injecting spontaneity back into the home can rapidly have a positive effect on the wellbeing of both individuals and the whole community.
The End, it seems, is nigh. "It's strange in rock culture just now," Primal Scream's Bobby Gillespie told BBC4's Review Show in December. "It's kinda dead, I think. It's over." The Cult's Ian Astbury, meanwhile, has decided that the album has also reached the end of the line.
It can be argued that Bonehead bowed out from Oasis when the band was at its peak as a functioning unit. Today, he says his playing of music has changed, but has ageing affected his appreciation of music?
Jacob is unique looking and unique sounding. With his laid back cool vibe. He was dressed from head to toe in black with just a peak of white sock escaping from his Adidas sneakers. His trademark wide brimmed hat was perched firmly on his head and complimented by a black, satin lapel-ed blazer.
I'm getting ready to embark on a three week tour of Germany, with performer Ryan Sheridan, and I realised I don't really have a working suitcase any more. I think I've been hibernating since Christmas. So, it's about time I made a list of on-the-road-again must-haves. Flights, epic car journeys, travel sickness, and a show a night... I just need to be comfy!
It appears that hating Taylor Swift is one of the internet's favourite hobbies. Just Google her name and you're hit with a virtual tsunami of fierce hatred... But here's the thing. Hatred for Taylor Swift seems entirely arbitrary. Nobody appears able to properly justify trolling her, or disliking her. Substitute any other young pop star into any of the above-described scenarios and the public reaction would have been completely different.
What shocked me was seeing Beyonce being all sexy with her husband, Jay-Z, who features in the song and shared the stage with her. Hot monogamy? Now that's not something you see every day.
Queen Bey has gone and outdone herself with her latest performance at the Grammys by gyrating against her hubby Jay-Z while wearing a thong leotard for a risqué rendition of Drunk In Love.
From a commercial standpoint, musicians and brands have spent years trying to make the most of each other. Some of those partnerships, like Michael Jackson and Pepsi back in the 1980s, have become the stuff of marketing legend.
