Man About Town: All hail the new King and Queen of England
Saturday 21 July 2012

As they say in the US, "game recognises game" - and hip-hoppers rarely hesitate to bestow honour upon its pioneers for teaching those next in line a thing or two - especially those who are doing it so well. So there's moments tonight when, despite being age-mates, Public Enemy's venerable Chuck D pays tribute to the legendary Melle Mel, calling him "teacher" ("You snatched the pedal out of my hand son!" Mel shouts back, beaming). Later, the PE frontman nods like a proud dad as he watches fellow New Yorker Raekwon take his turn on the mike - and when the latter introduces "the man of the hour, my brother, your brother" Ice-T, you can't help notice the smallest gesture of respect.

Recently I asked if my mother wanted something to read, and she instantly requested Priestley. "The plays?" I suggested. "No," she replied, "the novels." If John Boynton Priestley has undergone something of a rediscovery lately it's because of his theatre work. But Priestley was known to the older generation for some 26 novels that contained an astonishingly rich amount of social realism. He first found fame as a master of the short essay, working in a wool firm by day and writing at night. He had grown up in a respectable suburb of Bradford, a graceful Victorian town whose destruction at the hands of property developers he later decried.

The resurrection has been a long time coming, and there were fears last night it might be somewhat short-lived.
