A Wink's As Good as a Knob

I guess reunions are whatever works best, given the unavailability of various member sof old bands due to death, disability or other commitments, but I can't help but think Mick Hucknall fronting the Faces is very strange indeed. And Glen Matlock on bass? Maybe that works.

Presumably Ron Wood (who is on board) is still away with the pixies, mindset-wise.

Nine-foot colon killed The King

This has the whiff of something strange about it - or it's a promotion for fibre.

For those with Suspicious Minds - or anyone who thought Elvis was full of shit - his personal physicians, Dr Nick, reveals the real cause of his death.

The mention of on-stage accidents makes you wonder why The King had such a predilection for white jumpsuits. Only on Fox News!

Buy a ticket in advance on and collect a free, recorded-on-the-night album. Sounds like a good deal to me.

How to break up a band

Thanks to Grrtch Wood from The Deep South for this gem. I could name a few bands I know in which this guy may have played but I'd pay with my life.
