I should have asked Paul's permission for this one

Gary G's favourite chord, A minor.

 A minor? Doesn't he prefer them to B7?

There was a time when Rolf Harris could do no wrong.

He also had a hit with "Two Little Boys" in the 60s.

Rod Stewart to stand trial for security guard attack
https://www.rte.ie/entertainment/2021/0 ... rd-attack/

The 76-year-old rocker and 40-year-old son Sean were charged with simple battery following an alleged incident on New Year's Eve 2019 at the Breakers Palm Beach Hotel in Palm Beach.
Security guard Jessie Dixon claims Rod punched him in the ribs during a row over access to a private party in a children’s area.
Sean allegedly got "nose to nose" with Mr Dixon. Both men deny the charge.


Aka "Glasgow Kiss".
