I couldn't let the passing of Manchester's Davy Jones - jockey, Monkee and Ena Sharples' grandson - go unnoted here. All of us 60s and 70s kids grew up chortling at The Monkees TV series - they were part of the fabric of our childhoods.
And Davy was Mrs H's favourite (how fitting).
I'm really glad that whole Evil Fake Group thing has been consigned to the dustbin of lazy music crit history and we can just enjoy The Pop.
With Goffin, King, Diamond, Boyce and Hart penning it, what Pop it was.
We'll miss you Mr Jones.
