LETTERS: Good advice and good value from solicitors

Sir: Further to the letter from Keith Richards, senior lawyer with the Consumers' Association (9 October), I am the managing partner of a large Midlands firm outside Birmingham. My firm has to maintain a full service, satisfactory to our clients, rewarding to our staff and profitable to our partners. I have no problem with knowing that my firm has staff who are perfectly able to give the correct answers to the Which? questions. My problem is how to match the knowledge to the inquirer at the time of inquiry.

Stones roll back years in Brixton

It was the hottest ticket of the summer. It was luminous yellow plastic, worn round the wrist hospital-style, and it got you into London's Brixton Academy last night to see the last date of the Rolling Stones' UK Tour.

A touch of class

Royalty. Captains of Industry. Sloane Rangers. It's no surprise they flock to the Stones. The band has always aspired to be part of the establishment, as Giles Smith reports

LETTER : Wrong Sir Richard

From Mr Nicolae Ratiu

House-buyers `get a raw deal over defective surveys'

House-buyers are getting a raw deal from surveyors, it is claimed today. Too many defects are missed in surveys, avenues of redress are "totally inadequate" and the courts are adopting a blinkered and illogical interpretation of the law "which denies proper compensation to innocent consumers''. Keith Richards, a senior lawyer at the Consumers' Association, says the financial consequences for householders are enormous. The two main professional bodies regulate admission and advertise the merits of using qualified surveyors "but effectively turn their back on consumers who have lost out at the hands of an incompetent professional".

Prank master: Chris Morris's announcement of the death of Michael Heseltine on Radio 1 was just one among many notorious japes. His satire is big with the media, but how popular is it with listeners?

EVERY WEDNESDAY between 9 and 10pm, Britain's most listened-to radio station broadcasts the sound of a well-bred man humiliating people. He has the voice of command - deep drawled vowels, disciplined with a newsreader's dramatic emphases - and his victims obey. They accept his suggestions; they cower at his sudden barked exclamations; they let him bully them into nonsense. Radio 4 listeners may recognise this format - but this programme is on Radio 1, traditional home of happy DJs, prattling to the public between pop tunes.

ROCK / That voodoo that they do so well: Rolling Stones - JFK Stadium: It was lift-off on Monday night for the latest Rolling Stones tour. David Usborne went among the fans at JFK Stadium in Washington to hear the first blast declared 'awesome'

Into these few moments, all the anticipation of what just could be the last tour of the 'greatest rock'n'roll band in the world' is suddenly now distilled. In the concrete cauldron of the JFK stadium in Washington, the lights go down and only the flickerings of cigarette lighters break the darkness.

ART / 50 Happy returns - Mick Jagger will be 50 on 26 July, Keith Richards on 18 December. Among other things, they are great songwriters. But which of their 266 songs is the best? We asked 50 musicians, friends, critics and others to name their favourite

AT FIRST, 30 years ago, they didn't write their own songs. When they did, it was for all the wrong reasons. It was partly money - their manager, Andrew Loog Oldham, liked the idea of double royalties - and partly rivalry: the Beatles did it, so they had to. Jagger & Richards never did match Lennon & McCartney, whether for range, originality, tunes, or reach - it was a lot harder to get 50 people to join in this exercise than the one we did for Paul McCartney's 50th birthday. But not being as good as the Beatles is not the same as not being good. And among British rock songwriters, Jagger & Richards come a distinguished second.

A great Power in a rough business: 'There are 300 concert venues in London, and I just happen to have five of the best. Perhaps that is not a coincidence'

Vince Power picked up the telephone on his desk and spoke softly into it, 'Yeah? Yeah?' he said. 'Well, don't worry about it. Don't lose yer temper.'

ROCK / Adulation guaranteed - 'Or-right?': Mick Jagger talked to Giles Smith about his new solo album, life with the Stones and the night Ronnie Wood went down better than ever

THE Rolling Stones' office is an elegant terraced house in Wandsworth, south London, and when Mick Jagger arrives, you can hear his voice from two flights up, booming in the stairwell. 'Or-right?' Whenever Ronnie Wood comes to this office, the assistants raid the fridge for Guinness, and Lord knows what they get out when Keith Richards visits. But when Jagger turns up, they put the kettle on. He's wearing black jeans and a sleek blue shirt, buttoned to the neck around his tiny frame. And, in a room not short of soft furnishings, he chooses a stiff chair, sits restlessly and talks cheerfully about his new album in that drawl of his, in which the vowels float apart and the words melt into one another.
