Dick Rowe. Most famous for turning the Beatles down and (allegedly) saying 'guitar groups are out this year'.

It's all I could think of off-hand. Could maybe phrase it differently.

Cheers. It was purely instinctive: a quick memory run over Douglas's great movies led me straight to Iggy's greatest hit.

Q: if Debbie Harry, Robbie Williams, and Frank Sinatra would be in a room, which songwriter would probably get talked about at some point during their merry time together?

Years as song titles! Bowie had ’1984’, the Pumpkins ’1979’, Prince ’1999’. The others presumably also have their own...

How the hell are we supposed to know that!?


It's shit, isn't it? The lot of us are an expert collective that can potentially solve any serious pop riddle.

And now this!
