Watching a Roxy Music documentary on BBC4. Such a brilliant band. And they're all still alive (I think) so why not Bryan?

That would be so great. Maybe Brian Eno could produce it...

Well there's no chance of a Be-Bop Deluxe reunion is there as Bill so adamantly says.

I get why he doesn't want to but...wouldn't that be wonderful!

Mind you, even if Bill was remotely interested I doubt he would due to the great Charlie Tumahai no longer being with us.

Unfortunately, for the fans, Bill is very much a 'that was then, this is now' bloke, which we'll just have to respect.

Plus, some of his prodigious output is very good.

Geri says the Spice Girls' reunion is to thank the fans for being loyal: 'It's our gift to you! It's a party, and you're all invited.' Ain't she generous? How much are the f**king tickets again? She never comes to my parties, and they're free. All right, discount for her.

I'm reading Hunter Davies' 'Beatles Lyrics' and what a disappointment. Given that he was actually close to the band, this is surprisingly vague, chatty and pointless ('Yeah, I like that bit. It's good.') He also has Fat Man's Disease: assuming a level of mateyness without working to earn it.

My favourite song at the moment is Lynyrd Skynryd 'Simple Man' for the line 'Forget your lust for the rich man's gold - All that you need is in your soul'. So I guess you won't be wanting any royalties for that one, Lynny?

A Spice Girls reunion AND the return of Alan Partidge. What a fab year.

What's the difference between the Sex Pistols and my mother's legs? The Sex Pistols got back together.

My mother's not a prossie. She does it for free.
Listening to New Order Live and it's stunning. Stunning they keep doing the same 35-year-old shit but are so revered.
