Revered by Dave Godin and the early aficionados of soul, Maxine Brown – who's still singing – has failed to gain her rightful place in the pantheon, perhaps because her good-time, New York City pop-soul lacked southern sass or tragedy in the-making.

What do you buy the man who has everything? The answer, if plans for Prince Charles's 60th birthday celebrations are anything to go by, is a performance from Rod Stewart, conversations with the Kumars and dinner with Carla Bruni.

That's a short and to the point question from someone in need of both style and substance.
Days Like Those: 'Surely I would remember having an interview? Media Studies teacher is a responsible, proper job'
Monday 08 September 2008
It was my friend Gill, who has a son in the same school as Louis, who pointed out that, according to this year's Parent Handbook, I am the new Media Studies teacher. "You dark horse," she said, and I asked what on earth she was talking about. "Look under the list of teachers," she said. And there I was.

After she defected from 'The Telegraph', the first column by Jan Moir, right, for the 'Daily Mail' appeared on Friday under the line "Are you thinking what she's thinking?" Unluckily for Jan, proprietor Lord Rothermere may not be on her wavelength. One of her stories attacked Edward Eggins's sponsored rickshaw drive from Nepal to southern India, in memory of his friend James Wentworth-Stanley. "Why can't those who want to raise money for charity do something useful, instead of embarking on self-indulgent adventures?" she ranted. Alas for Jan, young Eggins happens to be a pal of Rothermere. Couldn't a colleague have told the new girl?

Platinum rooster hair, leopard skin leggings and spandex silver vests were just some of the fashion atrocities committed by Rod Stewart, as he strutted his way through the nation's consciousness during the 1970s and 1980s. One of his most popular songs was entitled "You Wear It Well". But many would say Rod, generally, didn't. So perhaps it comes as something of a surprise that, deep into the 21st century, the Anglo-Scottish singer has decided to launch his own clothing range.
