News Dave Lee Travis arrives at Southwark Crown Court in London on Wednesday for the second day of his trial.

Letter: Monkee jibe

I attended the Monkees' concert in Manchester and can understand the reluctance of the organisers to continue to give out press tickets ("Cries and Whispers", Real Life, 23 March). The concert was entertaining, lively, and thoroughly enjoyed by the audience and the Monkees finished to a standing ovation. Two days later a less than lukewarm review appeared in the local paper.

LETTER: LINDA McCARTNEY & VEGETARIANISM

YOUR leader, "Who'll champion the herbivores?" (22 October) asks why everyone is so beastly to Linda McCartney. I wonder myself whether or not she is still a photographer. To my mind , photography is not compatible with vegetarianism because photographic emulsions use gelatine, made from boiled bones. Perhaps she's an ardent campaigner for digital imagery.

OBITUARIES : Tommy Boyce

Pop-song writing became an accepted art-form during the hit-hungry Sixties. Due reverence had long been shown the composers of popular songs that had become the "standards" of previous decades. However the age of Rodgers and Hart was rapidly supe rseded by equally celebrated partnerships, like Goffin and King, and Lennon and McCartney. The new writers provided songs that suited the times, and a new generation of wildly disparate and highly individual performers. One of the most prolific and succe ssful songwriters of the Sixties was Tommy Boyce, who provided the television stars the Monkees with some of their greatest hits.

Underrated: Cleared for take-off

If you go by simple arithmetic, a pop career pursued by one Beatle should be precisely a quarter as good as one pursued by four. The theory doesn't stand up, though, because it may be more or less true of George Harrison's solo output, but John Lennon's is generally about half as good without the other Fabs and Ringo Starr's is somewhere between a 100th and a 1,000th.

IT'S QUITE a posed photograph. It was David Bailey who took it. He came out to a little house I had on the Welsh border, where I moved after Tubular Bells. It was one of a series taken for my third album, shot through a window when it was pouring with rain.

Pop refrain drives message home

A CLASSIC pop song that includes the words 'have a drink, have a drive, go out and see what you can find', forms the jingle for the summer anti- drink drive campaign, launched yesterday at a south London pub.
