Eyebrows were raised when Mott The Hoople's initial reunion shows at the Hammersmith Apollo sold out so fast that further dates had to be added, and then some more. One expects the likes of Led Zeppelin to inspire fond affection on a sizeable scale, but dear old Mott? Who knew there was such a collective yearning for the glam boogie monsters?

Mrs Irina Ivanova, mother of the lovely Ekaterina, the cocktail waitress and model who has so beguiled Ronnie Wood, isn't happy about how her daughter has been portrayed in the British media. "The way she is described is as a Russian waitress," wails Irina, "but what it means is she is a bitch." It will be news to many Russian catering staff in Britain that the terms are synonymous but there you are. Mrs E continues: "Jo Wood said that she is a bitch but she is only 20 –she is just a normal girl." Absolutely. Nothing could be more normal than for a young woman to link up with a 61-year-old legendary booze-hound and shag-monster, pose naked for him and decamp with him to his Irish mansion to live in innocent bliss for ever. What mother would argue with that?

Another Saturday night, another tribute band. Yet such a thought does the Illegal Eagles a serious disservice. Five unassuming middle-aged men in jeans and white shirts sauntered on stage to the strains of "The Return of the Sorceror", the familiar theme from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. They picked up their instruments and kicked off with an easygoing "Seven Bridges Road", smoothly followed by the old country favourite "Take It Easy". Accomplished and proficient players all, and with a beautiful and pitch-perfect new singer, the band worked their way through all the crowd-pleasers, including tracks from the recent album, Long Road Out of Eden.
