Hoses of the Holy in the Parallel Universe

Pink Floyd to Tour Scotland

(That's a joke, by the way, Mr Gilmour, based on the BBC headline.)

But what I really, really, want to know is, to whom will the BBC turn for a quote about Paul Gambaccini when Paul Gambaccini is in the news in his own right?

Put another way, is there a rock/pop/jazz etc. artist/group in the history of the world that Paul Gambaccini doesn't have an opinion upon? Does the BBC have a big, fat book of PG quotes for these occasions?

  • Hilariously Dave Gilmour was voted more popular than Jimi Hendrix in a recent Guitarist poll.

    That put a cat in the spokes of received opinion about these sort of things.

    Hendrix has an honorary doctorate in coming first in popular guitarist polls.

    They blamed it on Live8 or something. The same sort of absurd effect that makes Robbie Williams come higher in polls of Great Britains than Nelson.

    Probably about time to debunk some of the myth though.
