Anguished-sounding Tennessee singer/keyboards player Whitlock followed Eric Clapton from Delaney & Bonnie into Derek and the Dominos.

Obituary: Colin Manley

"COLIN MANLEY was brilliant," Paul McCartney said during an interview on BBC Radio Merseyside in 1988. "He was the finest guitarist around Liverpool in the early 1960s and he could do all that Chet Atkins stuff with two fingers. A lot of the lads tried to play like that, but only Colin could do it really well."

PETER YORK ON ADS NUMBER 255: YELLOW PAGES

Service that lands before it takes off celebrates its 21st birthday

TWENTY-ONE YEARS ago an aircraft took off from Heathrow, made a deafening noise somewhere west of Ireland, and, after its passengers had sipped some Krug and supped on the finest beluga caviare, landed in New York two hours before it had taken off. It was an unprecedented event in the history of air travel.

Spirit of the Age: Rebirth of an ancient religion

LET ME tell you everything you know already about the Hare Krishna movement. Orange robes. Shaved heads. Tinkly finger-cymbals. Endless chanting in the rainy high streets of Britain's provincial towns. Hare Krishna, Hare Hare, Hare Rama, Hare Krishna. George Harrison's Tudor manor at Letchmore Heath. Disputes over noise with neighbours. Er, that's it.

Pop: The real wild men of rock

Why use lawyers when a spot of GBH will do? Marion `Suge' Knight was not the first music biz manager to use direct methods, nor will he be the last.

George Harrison tells of battle with cancer

GEORGE HARRISON, the former Beatle, has been treated for throat cancer, but was given a medical all-clear last month. He has blamed his illness entirely on an on-off smoking habit.

Cries And Whispers: With all these egos, Oasis won't Be Here Now much longer

THIS COULD be a case for Mulder and Scully: there was a confirmed sighting this week of a Noel Gallagher recording with no guitars on it, no drums, and no chord-sequence that bears a resemblance to anything by the Beatles. The track is called "Teohuacan", and it can be found on the X-Files movie's soundtrack album, out this week. It's a ghostly, trip- hoppy instrumental (a sensible idea, considering Noel's lyrics), and in a way it's his most Beatle-ish recording to date, in that it shows he doesn't always take the movie's slogan, "Fight The Future", to heart. It's either a sign that Oasis's own future is much brighter and more fruitful than Be Here Now led us to believe, or it's a sign that Oasis's days are numbered. It's up to Noel to decide which.

Apple fails to account for itself

College days remembered

In The autumn of 1969 I was a research student in the English department of Manchester University, a late entrant who'd intended to continue his studies at Hull. Despairing of the loneliness of postgraduate life in a new town, I was happy to fall in with a crowd of interesting, bar-based students, the nucleus being a fellow English researcher who'd just returned from a creative writing course at an American university and had been in the same class as reclusive novelist Thomas Pynchon. Cool.
