One day you'll be older, too

Help the aged, instructed Jarvis Cocker, and while we usually take the piss out of Simon Webbe, we were pleased to see him following Jarvo's advice and taking time to visit a care home in East Anglia. Especially since nobody does pomposity-puncturing quotage like older people:

Resident Betty Totham said: “I hadn't heard of him before as I don't go in for these pop stars. But he was very nice and posed for a photograph with me. It was a really nice surprise.”

Although how much of surprise is debatable - if you don't know who he is and don't care for popstars, isn't a visit by a bloke who used to be in Blue effectively no different from having a chat with the windowcleaner?

Here is a popstar everyone can go for: http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y96/ZioZio/charlies/watermark.jpg

If there is a better picture of Mr. Burgess I'd like to see it.

Oooh... now, that is a lovely picture; I've not seen that since the heady days of the 109 fanzine. Thank you, Claire...
