OK, so good Queen Bess doesn't know who Eric Clapton is... I guess I can
buy that. But given her lack of rock knowledge, I don't understand her
bestowing of knighthoods or OBEs on marginally talented rock-n-rollers, like
Elton John... particularly when (Sir) George Shearing hasn't yet been
knighted! The man is a credit to piano playing, to the British Isles and to
the human race. And (Dame) Marian McPartland is possibly even more worthy.
Does anyone know how to campaign for their elevation to -- what do they call
it, a peerage?
