Golf: Nicholas inspired for title defence

Pop: INXS Glasgow Barrowlands

Some time in the past, although I'm sure even now he doesn't regret it, Michael Hutchence said, "I love being famous... it makes me feel wanted and loved and noticed." That's one reason, I guess, INXS keep playing after 17 years on the circuit. Another may be his personal life - how long can a man stand to be billed as "Mr Paula Yates"? Ironic, since much of Paula's fame has derived from those she's hung out with, and INXS have at least made hypnotic music. It was never much more than white dance- rock for those who can't dance, a typically 1980s sound, but around the era of Kick, back in 1987, INXS were indisputably funky. It's those memories that dragged me here, to a relocated venue considerably smaller than the one they'd been scheduled to play, to see what was occurring. And, by golly, excess is delivered.

I kept thinking 'This is not pain, this is not pain ...'
