Taddyperson: I am not a Mr, a "lady" nor a SoH "fan". I am a writer who certainly likes the musicians concerned but preferably when they are doing something other than watered down soft rock catering mainly for women of a certain age who like travelling on coaches to the Albert Hall.

Part of what Phil Beer was driven to say to madlizziecornish was:

What I do NOT wish to be portrayed as is a member of some form of geriatric Boy Band. This sort of adulation is utterly embarrassing and I'd really like it to stop now.

That was almost a year ago. I do so hope John Jones won't be driven to have to paraphrase this plea not to be stalked.
