Five years ago today

Steve Sutherland's masterly tribute to Joe Strummer - "how come Paul Weller's still shopping for hats?" - sat alongside the announcement that The Beatles Monthly was ceasing publication simply because there was nothing left to say;
Gay Dad turned up on an advert;
The Daily Star insisted that Robbie Williams was signing on for an "Osbournes style" show;
but the best rumour of the day was John Piennar and Tony Hadley plotting a fight.
