Great News For Music Fans?

It was with the some dismay that I read on the BBC site that rumours that Sir Cliff Richard was going to stop recording music were unfounded. I knew that the old duffer periodically ranted about the reluctance of radio stations to broadcast his efforts, and apparently on Tuesday he was quoted as saying he would not waste time on "a record that no-one will play". However, unfortunately, he seems to have had a change of heart since then!

Elsewhere on the site we find that Sir Cliff's new album will be released on 1st November, and features two collaborations with that other wizened old has-been Barry Gibb. Why can't these folk spend their twilight years frittering away their ill-gotten gains on fast cars and faster women? Their music was crap even when they were in their prime!

Haven't the listening public suffered enough?
