The second, semi-ironic burst of Monkeemania, caused by the reformation of the "Prefab Four" in 1986, is itself a nostalgic memory now. These days, Davy Jones, Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork get back together every few years on some pretext or other – the band's 45th anniversary this time. (Mike Nesmith, the richest, most talented ex-Monkee, appeared in 1996 and then left them to it.) All the contradictions in their strange career play out precisely tonight.

Rock 'n' roll photography doesn't get much more intimate than Linda McCartney's Life in Photographs, a collection of subtle portraits from the 60s to the 90s that blends candid moments from music's good, bad, and beautiful with a warm family album-style record of the McCart-ney clan.

Looking on the bright side – literally – of his spectacularly horrible trousers, John Daly said, "the good thing is that if you get dressed in the dark, any shirt is going to match." Really John? Surely you mean that no shirt is going to match.

A respected singer-songwriter whose most enduring recordings were penned by others, Crispian St Peters remains an enigma of mid-1960s pop music. He scored two Top Ten entries in 1966; the second of these, "The Pied Piper", was also a huge success in North America. Moreover, an attendant album, Follow Me, elicited covers of St Peters compositions by such disparate artists as Ken Dodd, Darrell Glenn and, most spectacularly, Marty Kristian – whose "I'll Give You Love" (which St Peters also produced) was a hit in Australia.

Shang a Lang! Most of those associated with the Bay City Rollers are either dead or pushing retirement age, but, almost 40 years after their heyday, the Rollers are still rolling.

Gordon Waller was the lead singer of the 1960s pop duo, Peter and Gordon. In 1964, they had a UK No 1 with "A World Without Love", but as with the Dave Clark Five, Herman's Hermits and the similarly named and styled Chad and Jeremy, they had greater success in America.

Behind the fun-filled, facile, fluffy, occasionally inspired, sing-along hits – "Keep On Dancing", "Remember (Sha-La-La)", "Shang-A-Lang", "Bye Bye Baby" – the Bay City Rollers scored in the 1970s lurked the controversial figure of their controlling manager, Tam Paton. A self-styled svengali, with none of Brian Epstein's class, nor the swagger of the Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren, Paton was a bandleader with an eye for the main chance. And, it would later transpire, a penchant for teenage boys.
